I saw several. Knew several satisfied customers. Found a local dealer that had what I wanted and bought it. The only other local dealer was CW...Nuff said!

If you scout around, at least then, a poor quality unit or poorly designed floor plan was somewhat obvious. I knew many who had a variety of brands and Jayco stood out.

The 2 year warranty was also a factor.

We usually attend the spring RV shows, and check out new floor plans, and the Jayco was the best for storage and livability, warranty, and construction. There's also a dealer close by, and we got a great deal. That made it warm and fuzzy for us.

We started with a brand new eagle 12 popup in 1996 and kept it for 19 years with no problems, but I enjoy doing routine maintenance and upkeep. It survived 3 kids, 2 dogs and a ton of memories. So this last spring we sold it to another young couple and bought an x17z ourselves for just the wife and I. We also checked out a lot of other brands and models and kept coming back to the Jayco. So we drove from Chicago to eastern Michigan to get a great deal and have used it 6 times already this year and can't wait for next year to come around.

We have found that our Jayco has ample amounts of storage. We have friends that we camp with that have other brands and they are jealous of the storage space that we have. We bout used, so the warranty wasn't a factor. BUT, when we begin looking for a new unit, we will start at Jayco because of how good this unit has been to us.

Similar rationale to what others have mentioned - warranty, reputation, etc. We were very happy with our White Hawk, and based on that knew we wanted to stay with Jayco when we decided to go a little bigger.

Bought a brand new Jayco Qwest 10v pop up from a local dealer in 2002 and it was the best purchase I have ever made. Easy to use and tow and very well designed and made. I also liked the family owned aspect of the company (Too bad they sold out).

Had been shopping around for a small hybrid, found a very mint 2013 x17z and was very impressed with the features, weight and ease of use. Understand the CCC issue but there is only two of us and 450 pounds of cargo is plenty. Very impressed with how my Jeep Grand Cherokee handled it. Cant wait for spring!

Bought our first Jayco based on floorplan after borrowing a friend's pup a few times and learning what we didn't like about his. Didn't know a lot about Jayco then, but got lots of compliments for choosing Jayco. Oooh, a Jayco!

Bought our second Jayco because it was by far the best condition used unit we had seen privately or on a dealer lot. Some of that may have been the former owner, but some of it should also be attributed to the quality of the build. We saw other used units of the same vintage from other mfg's that were literally falling to pieces. And we also liked the floor plan a lot.

Semi local dealer that would take our 1 year old Forest River hybrid as a trade and the 33 RLDS had a floor plan we liked better than anything else we seen regardless of brand.
