New Jayco 29l

Spent 2 years looking for travel trailer and decided on 2011 Jayco 29l. Looked at many brands and we kept coming back to the Jayco because of quality of workmanship and warranty. Outside kitchen is great feature and the trailer tows great. We have two kids and a dog and the bunks work great for us. Only problem was thermostat went bad but was replaced by dealer. Anyone else have the 29l?

Hey Ebis63! Welcome to the Jayco Forum. If you get a chance come on over to the new member forum and also introduce yourself. I have not seen that 29L in person, but it looks like a nice unit!

We a 29L also an love it. outside kitchen is great no more trips inside for the kids to get drinks an my beer is closer too. we love the floor plan. the kids like to sit at the bar an eat..the only thing I wish it had was more draws(one under the fride an sink arent quite enough)..

Wife complained about lack of cabinets but I keep my cooking and grill gear outside so I'm fine.

My wife and I looked for about two years as well and half a dozen RV shows prior to buying ours. We liked the floor plan we saw in a Tamarack Trail, lucky for us the dealer wanted way too much money and I wasn't happy with the construction methods. Was made in the old fleetwood factory. Than four more brands with the same floor plan. Once I read up on the Jayco I knew this was the one for us. Starting our summer trip tomorrow morning. Just have to hook up the trailer, feed the critters and then were off.

We bought a new 29L last February and have not had a single problem with it. We have used it over 14 nights and we love everything about it. This coming Saturday we hit the beach for an other 7 nights. This is our 3rd Jayco, so that's not really a surprise.

We have had ours out 10 nights so far and are getting ready for 5 more next week. Very happy with the Jayco and the floor plan. Great info and folks on the forum as well.

Tjd1100 how does the 1500 tow? I have an f150 and I have no issues but I keep it at 55 and with Reese dual cam I find towing stress free. I was looking at upgrading truck but it has all the upgrades so can't justify. All flat where we live so that helps as well.

hey ebis63, it tows the 29l nice. I put on a set of timbrens to help,with them an my wd hitch im about 1/2inch lower than when unloaded, which to me is close enough..it seems to be real happy at 60-65mph any faster an i get a little sway but i dont have sway control so if i did i could go faster but 60 is just fine for me..Where we live its hilly an some mountains an i have no prob at all, i may slow down a little pulling the grades(50-55mph) but thats about it.Havent really checked the mileage yet because we've been doing short trips around home within an hour or so but we are going to OBX for 2 weeks so ill check it on the way down to how "good" it really is..

I agree the 29L has a great floorplan, but it's also 33'-4" long. I'm sure you have your WDH dialed in great, but IMO you would enhance your TV/TT handling/controllability with a sway control device. At any speed under less than ideal road conditions or an aggressive maneuver a sway event could surface, not the time to wish one had sway control.

WDH manufactures recommend (2) manual friction control sway bars on TT's over 25ft., or IMO a Reese HP Dual Cam and Equal-i-zer brand WDH's are great upgrade considerations for a TT 33 feet long.

Be safe out there , it's the other guy that can ruin your perfectly planned camping trip.
