Enjoying our Greyhawk 31FK!

Bought our 31FK in June 2011 from RVDirect.com. Picked up in Des Moines and put almost 4k miles on it since then. Just winterized it and putting it in winter storage. Only a couple minor issues...mostly items that should have been caught at the factory. Had to "fix" the main television so the kids could watch it while driving. Overall, very satisfied with our Jayco MH!

We have had our Melbourne 29C for about a year. We have enjoyed it, although we had to address the suspension system as the ride was extremely rough. Like other manufacturers, Jayco has a habit of using "overload" or "helper" springs instead of actually adding another leaf or two to handle the weight load of the RV. The helper springs to nothing in terms of ride quality, but they do bang and make various other mysterious noises. We had them removed, added a couple leaf springs, and added the MOR/ryde system, which GREATLY improved the ride quality and handling of the unit. I would highly recommend the MOR/ryde suspension system.

Hope your 29D is doing great. We have the same issues with front end waving. Thought of getting Steer-Safe to help.
Finally got all our warranty work done. MH is in top shape. Can't wait until Jayco gets the bill!

Bought a 2008 Melbourne 29D in late July. Had it out twice for camping and three times on short road trips. Dealer fixed minor problems such as sticky valve on grey tank and broken spring on the awning.

We purchased our 2011 31DS in February. The A/C had to be replaced, and we had acouple of really minor repairs. Put about 3600 miles on it this summer, lots of trips in Washington State and one long one to Montana.

We are really happy with it, don't miss our 25DB at all.

How did your MH do in the mountains of WA and MT? We are headed that way next summer, but have not been in real mountains with ours. Do you pull a tow?

Bought a 2004 31 foot Granit Ridge in July. Driven 3500 miles and averaged from 6 to 8 MPG that came out to a real 7 miles to gallon pulling a small jeep wrangler. Pulled steep grades in low gear and high RPM's, but the V 10 Ford handled all of this with no problems. I drive about 60 MPH and let everybody pass. This may seem slow but even at this speed 500 mile days are relataively easy. Everything works except the backup video camera. Moving up from a Casito travel trailer, we have "plenty" of room.
