Congrats!
We are looking at a Jayco Greyhawk or a Entegra Odyssey (Jayco's Sister Company) Which model did you get? Nice to hear that the quality was what it should be.

Model 22j. We are both retired i am 77 the bride is 66. We go out 1 wk a month from april to oct.. After all the negative comments about albany rv ny and issues with jayco i was impressed with fit, finish, roof and under carriage for a entry level unit. Perfect for the 2 of us...good luck with your search.

Thanks cherv
Right now we are in the "between lost & confused stage" Really like the Greyhawks but the Entegra Odyssey has a large window in the front top bunk like the Greyhawk Pretige has. Our Grand kids would have so much fun getting to bunk up there. The Odysseys have more features than a standard Greyhawk but has all the quality and warranty that their parent company Jayco does.

I can't get my 4 and 5 year old's down from there! They both want to sleep up there and look out at the stars at night. During the day, they sit up there and look out the window with binoculars, play games, etc. I'm really glad I got the window, the kids absolutely love the area up there with it. I don't know they would have as much fun without it. Not to mention, the light it adds to the rig is great, makes it feel much more open.

X2...Wife wouldnít have one without that window. It is a very nice feature. The power shade is handy and itís easy to use. Like bababooey said added light is what we like along with the view out the front.

Cherv...Congratulations! You are going to really enjoy traveling in your new Class C Jayco. Ours has been great! No major problems and very little adjustments that I have made. Very pleased with our Greyhawk!

The 2019ís come with the slide topper. We didnít get the leveling jacks. I wasnít sure I wanted to finance something I donít really know that I needed. They can always be added after the fact. Weíll drive it, beat the heck out of it, loosen it up, and then see if we need them.

I didn't want the leveling jacks either. Just another thing to cause a potential problem. Unit is under 25', a few plastic blocks is all that is needed, keep it simple. We are not going to tow a vehicle, will use enterprise if necessary...wish you well with your unit. Any issues on this end i will let you know.

Leveling jacks also perform a very important function of keeping the motorhome stable while using. When camping high winds can cause movement if you donít have leveling jacks down. Also walking around or shifting in the bed will rock the motorhome.

Leveling jacks solve this...makes for a sturdy stable platform while camping.

Itís still an option for me, however, thereís no way I wanted to roll that cost into financing. Iíll save and pay cash. I like the idea of levelers, but just wanted to wait.

Picked up the 22J yesterday. I had already contacted Jayco, downloaded & printed the manual, and came ready with questions. This made my walk through go smooth. Three things I noticed- the GFCI is now a little button on the breaker panel under the kitchen cabinets. Itís not longer on an outlet itself. Next, theyíve done away with the driver seat electronic adjustments. Itís all manual. Which is fine- I wasnít sure how well it would work. Finally, it was built on a 19 450 cutaway. I donít know why I was thinking Iíd get a 17 or 18, but I did.

Driving it wasnít tough- I hit Orlando traffic and had a few semis pass me. There was push, but not tremoundous push. Where I thought a steering stabilizer was an absolute necessity, Iíll wait, break it in, and see if I need it.

I hit a state park 30 minutes away on the way home to camp over. No problems at all. I am outside of Orlando and was impressed at how many channels the tv picked up.

So is your unit a 2019? Thanks for all the info, we pickup ours on monday. Initial inspection was fine, no issues. Plan to completely coat the engine compartment, front fender wells and under carriage with a product called"fluid film" great stuff, did our gmc when new and also our tt. Consider it..

Kind of disappointed that yours came w/out the electric driver's seat. Hope they keep it as a option or on other models. I'm taller, wife is shorter, being able to adjust the seat for each one of us is kind of a big deal. Especially if you have back or leg problems.

If by some chance a Coach I would buy didn't have auto levelers it would be a fast trip to Indiana to get a Bigfoot system. Right now they have their winter pricing............big savings

Awesome. Pretty much mirrors my experience with them down in Orlando.

When you going camping? You get a chance to or is it too cold? Drive on down to Florida- it's pretty nice here.
