Very nice... I like the storage & counter-space in the bedroom...for a 2002 that's a clean looking trailer!

Very nice rig! As long as she keeps being reasonably trouble free hang on to her as the new ones are pricey at best.

Thank-You all for the kind reviews. The Bdrm & Kitchen were the selling points. Yes, it is very clean inside, another factor we favored.

healthi - Its a camp resort an hour from our front door. We are Seasonal Campers till we can swing FullTime. Its a beautiful place and on the internet if you care to browse its site.

We encourage any of those that tow to drop by if possible. We are there nearly every weekend. As Cindy sezes, "the camp is looking great, but our house is falling apart!"
We really love it there !

Conductor - Will try to keep it operational ... I'm still learing this stuff and rely on forums such as this one for assistance. Great way to meet fellow RVers too ! We really like the lifestyle. We were lucky with just a few minor problems so far (knock on wood!) so its smooth sailing for the most part.

Wish we had a Aux input to the stereo system for my iPod or iPhone.
Not much "underneath" storage so I'm considering a carrier.
Does the Jayco have a hitch on the back? I can't recall seeing one, but I'm assuming there is. (another stupid newby question).

We are very very happy with the Jayco. It seems to be a very well made unit. I had mentioned "Designer" to a few of our neighbors at camp prior to buying it, and they had good things to say. Wide assortment of brands at the resort. We're next to a Class C 28' Jayco with many more scattered about.

Thanks again for your kinds responses. Im sure this forum will prove to be very informative.
I always check with owners before repairs or modifications.

Never a dumb question, no matter how new or experienced you may be!

I've been reading up a bit on people adding rear hitches to the back of Jayco's, and from what I gather it's really not recommended, even just for bikes. That being the case, if you're thinking of adding an external storage box hanging off the back-end, you may want to really look hard at how it might affect the structure. Now, given that yours is way out of warranty, it really might not be a problem. (but 'why' Jayco doesn't recommend this is another question)

I have seen a few trailers where they've obviously gone to the effort of having a platform professionally welded directly to the frame of the trailer - not sure how much weight they can store on it, but something to consider.

Amen on "never a dumb question!"

RE adding a hitch on the rear of a Jayco for towing a boat, etc; somebody asked about that in another thread someplace, thought about 'em yesterday as I was looking at the instructions in my 5'er saying not to tow anything additional behind it. Those instructions are located on the backside of an inside large door leading to where the water pump and a small storage area are. The list gives info on weights along with other trailer stuff. Not sure if all Jayco's have instructions, etc in the same place but it's worth a look if you're thinking of towing more than just your trailer or happen to be wondering where to find pertinent trailer information.
