Everyone has...we all hate the couch. Just need to find something that fits is all. Join the Precept Owners Group and you'll see some of the upgrades we've made.

Hi,


I am new and have never been on a forum before. We are thinking to purchase the 2016 Jayco Precept 35S. Does anyone know what the enhancements are from the 2015 to the 2016? Thank you.

Upgrades

The best and most important upgrades is the new driver and co-pilot chairs. They have lumbar support which the previous ones did not. This upgrade alone makes it worth buying. Also, macerator on the sewage disposal. Exterior change includes white trim around the basement doors rather than black. Not a big deal.

I will list what I see as advantages of 2016 35S over 2015 35UN
1. 6 speed vs 5 speed
2. TV is not behind window dressing allowing easier access to back of tv
3. Cabinet instead of hole below counter at TV
4. Stove is set below counter with removable counter pieces to make a large smooth counter.
5. Larger drawers under stove
6. Regular instead of U-shaped dinette
7. Rectangular shower instead of corner shower. Easier to get in and out of.
(So we lose some towel storage)
8. King vs queen bed and thicker mattress. 35UN has lousy thin mattress due to function of sliders
9. Cabinets above head of bed are deeper
10. Closets are tall enough to hang clothes
11. Drawers in bedroom have better storage and easier access.
12. In the 35S, there is nothing to use as a nightstand. We will be jury rigging something for this.
Have you noticed other things. Please let us know.

Yes I would

We have a Jayco precept 35 un really love this vehicle no problems sometimes in the wind a little squirrely but it is a large box. My opinion and it's just my opinion is that people expect more out of these larger RVs and unless you're willing to spend the money to get into the bigger pushers. We had an older Seneca really like the motor and transmission but for Comfort we decided to go and upgrade to the precept missed the diesel but getting used to the gas we bought ours you so all the bugs were out of it no issues owned it for a year been on the road for 3 months no real issues

Yes, I would.
We picked up our 2016 Precept 35S this past April and have used it 6 times on mostly 2-4 day weekend outings putting on about 3,000 miles. The floor plan is fantastic and one item which we never would have ordered but came with the coach is the washer/dryer combo and now would never give it back. Yes, we have had some issues but Jayco Motorized CS has been a pleasure to deal with. Since I live so far from a dealer I fix most things myself. If I can't do it myself I take it to a local repair shop where I pay for it and get reimbursement from Jayco with never a quibble. The 2 year warranty was important to me so that I could have two camping seasons to work out the bugs. YES, we would do it again!!!

Yes, We took delivery of our '16 35S a year ago April. It's had it's issues but our dealer (Blade RV in Mt. Vernon, WA) is only an hour away and they do a great job at making things right. We bought our second motorhome first. When looking we started with 32' coaches and st some point did a side by side comparison with a 31UL and the 35S. When we retire in a couple of years all we need to do is have the washer/ dryer put in and we're good to go. In the meantime we have purchased a '14 Honda CRV and have it set up to tow, installed kayak racks on top and installed a receiver hitch on the back for out bike rack on the CRV. Mods to the coach have been the CHF and Koni shocks and SafeTplus steering stabilizer, added (2) Group J185 batteries which give us 430 AH on top of the coach batteries, added the propane Extenda-stay and have done some storage mods in the coach and in the storage compartments. We're ready to go!!

For the same money yes, knowing what I know now the answer is no. I would pay more and and go with either Newmar or Tiffin.

Having put 4000 miles on a 2016 31UL and now having 4000 miles on a different coach it's been night and day difference. But, it cost more too.

I'm assuming this was in reply to my post?

I know the tire size of the 2017 is larger (22.5) but the wheel base is the same giving the back wheels (in round numbers) at 49% the length. The coach I spoke about is over 53% and also on a 26k lb chassis vs. 22k for the 2017 31UL.

Beyond that the two "other manufactures" have better sound proofing around the dog house, double pane windows, etc. which make a much more quiet coach when driving.

But, they cost more.

Steve
