The New 228 is Home (pictures)

Well the trailer is home and I am so pleased with Jayco quality so far. The fit and finish of this trailer is head and shoulders above our Palomino S17 that was a Forest River product. Here are some pictures that I took on the weekend.

Very nice. I sure do like the new graphics and the look of the interior cupboard doors.

Nice tt! What are your plans for a maiden voyage? Did you get to do Camp Driveway when you got it home?

No camp driveway, we are in a pretty suburban area and I would feel a little weird sleeping out there. My wife has to work this weekend which is a long weekend and I would love to be out with the new unit. I am trying to get into a couple campgrounds close to home for the following weekend, if I can't we will probably head out to our friends acreage, camp driveway on a different driveway than my own. This way I can get a nice short tow in and make any little adjustments that I need to my WDH. I think I got it set pretty bang on, right out of the box. I have been watching tv and drinking beer in it on the driveway, does that count?

And yes Locky I love the cupboards as well. So well built.

Those aluminum wheels look sweet. There was a 221 on the lot that were aluminum but we decided to get the 228 instead. That tub surround is nice. Let us know how your first outing goes.

Looking good, I like the tub surround, been waiting all weekend for these pics... I have to live vicariously thru my fellow 228ers until the new girl comes home, should be built this week if the line started on time. No word yet, but I'll keep everyone in the loop. Good luck and keep us up to date on how thing go.

Did you see the pic of the sky light. That was a nice surprise for us. What a difference it makes in the bathroom with all the natural light coming in. I feel for you because I have been doing that for months and I know how hard it is to wait for your trailer. I am going to go home right away and fondle my 228 a little more

I had actually see the skylight in the model at my dealer, it does work well. Enjoy your time with the new camper.
