My husband and I have had a Melbourne 29 for 3 years, we bought a 2011 new, and we love it! We don't tow yet, cause we usually just bike or walk where we want to go. Usually to the beach or Lake Erie. It is a breeze to drive, as I love to drive it. If you can drive a pick up truck you got this in the bag. As stated above, the storage is limited, but you learn to leave the non essentials at home. The blinds I could do with out, we have gone thru a few, now I just learned to be easy when handleing them. The shower isn't bad, believe me, better than a bathhouse! We use Lynx levelers without any problems, I have been told that the levelers that you have installed aren't what they are cracked up to be, so we have not had them installed. We are getting an average of 11 MPG, trip to OBX, DC, NC, through mtns may be lower, but not bad at all. We travel with our doxie, Mackey, my husband is retired, but I still am going at it, hopefully not for long!
All in all, we love our Jayco, go ahead and get it, you wont be sorry. Happy motoring.
