2015 Greyhawk 29MV

We are downsizing from a 35' Class A Thor Motorcoach; now in the process of purchasing a 2015 Greyhawk 29MV. PDI etc. is scheduled for next Thursday.

We considered several competitive models and came back to the Greyhawk because we like the layout, the Ford drivetrain/chassis, 2-year warranty, and the suspension which is far and away superior to the others we test drove.

Sure would appreciate any feedback/advice from Jayco Class C Motorcoach owners.

Thanks in advance...

What made you decide to go from class A to class C?

We were not particularly happy with the class A which spent too much time in the shop and was more coach than we need. When we drove the Greyhawk, we were extremely impressed with the driveability and handling. All in all, it suits our needs much better and fits our RV pad here at the house like a glove.

We too traded in our 40ft holiday rambler for a 29 me. It has all the bells and whistles as our coach but is much easier to travel with. My only question is the Jensen jrv215n monitor that serves as our navigation monitor- It doesn't work! What are we doing wrong?

Welcome to the forum. I can't help with your question, but hopefully someone in the forum can.

It may help if you mentioned the year of your vehicle. Also, are you saying the Jensen jrv215n doesn't work at all or the navigation portion is not working?

There are issues with Jayco NOT doing the Radio/Nav install as the dealers "suppose to" be doing the install. My Bluetooth doesn't work as they did not put Mic in. Several others had similar problems. I contacted Jayco and they are suppose to send me a Mic to install. Only problem is, they don't have any in stock !! (

So, here I sit patiently waiting and staring out the window waiting ( getting excited each time I see the Mailman......

We bought a 2015 31fk in June. we have been all over Florida for 5 weeks now and haven't killed one another yet. The class C met our needs, is easy to drive, has more than enough storage and tows A Chevy Equinox with no issues. It was a little hairy driving down from New York in high winds but I think all class C's would have the same issue. Waiting for the snow to melt up north before we head back

Test driving our 2014 29 MV tomorrow. Good deal (I think) at the $63k asking price. It has 7K mileage. I was interested in the 29ME but the slide on the passenger side makes the awning shorter and we spend more time outside then in.
Pretty sure we are going to get it.
