J-Ride

Is J-Ride everything that Jayco claims? Looking at an 29MV. Thanks

This is my third MH and the best ride and drive of the bunch. First one was a 2006 25' Jayco Class C and my second one was a Winnebago 2008' 30' Class A. The ride on both of them was atrocious.

J-Ride absolutely is worth the price of admission. My Winnie Minnie handled like complete garbage - my Jayco stays true down the highway at 70mph even if I lift my hands off the wheel and hover (so long as there are no crosswinds).

My Greyhawk is allowing me to visit places I would NEVER drive my Winnebago.

Ditto!

Once I had the front end aligned and the Helwig springs adjusted to 2", my 2015 29MV with JRide handles quite well. High cross winds are still a problem, but I think it is just the nature of the beast.

How! We make a couple runs per year from Colorado to Iowa to visit our daughter. The cross winds, on I-76 and l-80 can make things "interesting", but my 2015 Greyhawk 29MV with J-ride holds the road well. Have driven through high-wind warnings from NOAA (by necessity) and it held the road well. Sure, you feel the deflection and always need to be alert, especially when clearing overpasses and being passed (or passing) semis, but we are very happy with the stability.

The other factor not to forget is how Jayco has the coach body isolated from the chassis on large rubber pucks - really makes for a quiet, smooth ride.

My 29 MV rides like a dream. I feel extremely comfortable driving it.

My 31FS weathered a FL to Alaska journey with no issues and mad what is loosely called a highway in Canada and Alaska a lot more enjoyable. This is my second Class C and it is significantly better than the Sprinter based one we started with.

I love the ride in my 31ul. Floor plan is great and the hideaway 50" TV sold me. Bought it at RV one for $89,995. Make sure you get the 12 cf fridge with the Ice maker.

I don't have anything to compare it to but for all the weight I'm carrying it sure does seem to handle quite nicely. Never heard anyone say it wasn't worth the extra $$$.
