We just picked up our 2020 Melbourne 24L and after going through it and identifing the problems we have encountered I would not suggest anyone purchasing this product. Problems with refrigerator, backup lights, wheel cover and other items.

24lp Melbourne owner

Proud owner of a 24lp 2019 w/stock paint. Usual little annoyances and the radio sucks. All in all a nice piece. 2020 has more in the cab though.

Just added my new to me 22J to the Redhawk line. Not too many of us, it seems.

We started out wanting small and were looking at the 22 models, then it went to 24, then 26, until we ended up with a 29xk. Same thing recently happened with a good friend, they started out sure they were going to get the 22j but it grew into the 26xd. It happens, once you start it is hard to stop. I even tried to put a bug in the wife’s ear about a Seneca with all the room, amenities and towing capacity, it did not work at all, i just got that look when she asked how much ��.

It's all about the priorities at the time of purchase.

For my wife and I, we already had a 30' Montana 5th wheel in a permanent spot. When the permanent spot became no more, it was time to re-think our priorities.

My GMC Sierra 2500HD could have towed it but with 300K miles on it, and us getting up there, we didn't want to tow it. Initially, we were planning on retiring in the 5er and selling our house. Health reasons caused us to re-think that. So, I looked at the space we actually used in the 5er and the length of our driveway at home (26'). I did not want to pay storage fees.

We scaled down our expectations of numerous, lengthy trips and I wanted to tow my 16' Jetcraft on fishing trips or even a TOAD.

Since money was an object, I looked for a reasonable compromise. Looking at price, features and towing specs, we settled on a NOS 2018 22J.

Yes, storage is at a premium and my wife would like more counter space. I would have liked swivel seats but, (given Covid) we have only used it for one trip. The fact that it is in our driveway, with these California Fires, it is our evacuation solution.

Our 22J has two TVs, Satellite Dish, fold down shelf in the bedroom for my computer and will serve us well...until our priorities change again.

So, yes. It does appear that not many of us have the same priorities .

I noticed one big advantage the 2018 model 22J had over the 2019 and later models. The electric adjustable seat. That big for me.

There is another major change between the 2018 and 2019 model. It's both a curse and a gift. The 2018 only has a battery tray with space for one small battery. The 2019 solved this by moving the battery storage to under a step entering the coach. Can now fit a couple of 6C GC batteries, and boost the amp hours available.

However this came at the expense of removing a plus the 02018 had, IMO. I like the step placement in the 2018. It's a double step and it tucks neatly up under the body, and even with the coach. The 2019 single step is lower than the coach body.

Thanks for the review. The battery storage issue with my 2018 will be solved when I install new AGM's under one of the dinette seats.

I noticed Jayco finally returned to an oven in the 2020 22J. When I purchased my 2018, I had the dealer install one at no charge.

In May 2020 we traded our 2018 Airstream in on a Jayco Redhawk 24B motor coach. Drove it 3k miles on the first Texas-to-Michigan trip. We experienced a failure of the slide drive near the end of the return home and was prevented from using our master bed and had to sleep in the over cab bed which proved to be quite comfortable.

50 days in the dealer's service bay and finally it was successfully repaired with help from Jayco. I have a Youtube video of the service department's work and success.

We are very happy with the 24B and tow our Jeep. Looking forward to a trip next week.

Does the dinette slide out (pulling cables) what about off gassing?

I also have a 35 GS. Had it almost 2 years and driven it 20k+ miles. Also use it to tow racecar trailer as we travel around the country to race. Done a lot of maintenance and upgrades stuff to the truck and generator. Also to motorhome its self. Very pleased with it. Very stable on the road even towing and being around big trucks.
