We got our Greyhawk in August. Had a few issues, due mainly having to rushing the PDI (restless grand daughter). Took it back to dealer in Aberdeen, MS in October and they made everything work like it is supposed to work.
Issues I had:
1. In motion satellite didn't work (cable was mis-routed at 3 way splitter)
2. Sound from tv didn't go though in-dash amp. (they had to connect properly by removing in-dash radio)
3. DVD player did not send signal to tv. (probably related to 2 above)
4. Automatic fan in bedroom had a broken fuse holder (replaced)
5. One lock on a storage bay didn't lock (replaced)
6. Genset didn't count hours (board was replaced - it's behind about 10 hours now)

All above was covered by warranty and took about 4 hours at dealer.

The thing didn't come with a spare tire (got a wheel and tire at my expense)

I got a slide topper installed also at my expense.

My next project is to install a Gen-turi exhaust for the genset so i can get in a little tailgateing.

We shopped and test drove used Class A's before deciding to get the Greyhawk.

Overall we are VERY HAPPY with the Greyhawk. Have made about 5 trips in it so far.

We have had our Seneca for only 2 months or so.
It worked well on our recent 7000 mile trip but really have not had it long enough to
comment on issues.
We are making some repairs due to it being 5 years old and though a few previous owners however.
After that will be time for us to enjoy it.

We have had our Greyhawk almost a year. It is in the shop (3 weeks) now to replace the camera in the mirror. Have to replace the entire mirror. Ordered from Jayco and they said about 3/4 weeks. We have drycamped in it several times. Gen works great. We stopped by Onan for a little work and he asked if it had about 25 hrs on it. We said no. About 95. Only thing that we don't like is the bedroom. Wish we had found a slide out. It is miserable. Also, hard to get used to the Ford engine. Not a whole lot of power. Other than that, we are getting on down the road.

We have had our Greyhawk since Oct 2010. Had a few minor issues - corrected by the dealer - A/C replaced - normal loose this or that - squeak in floor fixed. But we have had repeated issues with the gen set. Seems to quit while on the road and running the A/C. Had it into Onan twice - have to wait till spring to see if the last trip fixed it. I agree on the seeming lack of power out of the V10 my expectations were a bit higher than what i am getting (power and mpg). Have to admit though that we never go "empty". Usually we have full water and fuel .... oh and 98% of the time we are pulling either the boat or the Fusion. The bedroom is a bit cramped - if i recall the 31DS is a bit more roomier than our 31SS. All in all we are happy with the purchase - put roughly 6K miles on this year and planning at least that many next - and still work a full time job..

Have had the 2011 31SS since spring and we love it. It rides so much quieter and nicer than the older Class A we traded in. Bedroom is a little tight and bed is very high, but those are my only complaints. We have been out for about 12 long weekends. Lots of initial problems (AC was replaced, gaskets glued back on, door lock replaced, etc. etc. etc.). It was in the shop more than it was out when we first got it. Still having issues and it goes back in to the dealer next week and they can keep it until all is fixed. Now the gaskets around both the driver's and passengers windows in cab are coming off. The water valves for fresh water fill, pump usage, city water and the others are all wrong. It took a while to figure out, but we have to use different settings than what we are supposed to in order to get the water to work. Everything has been warranty work, but what a hassle.

A little disappointed in gas mileage. We are getting about the same as we did in the Class A and we don't tow anything and don't travel with full water tanks.

Even with all the issues, we still love it.

Jayco Melbourne 29D

We have a 2012 Jayco Melbourne 29D. Have had for about 2 months. Made 1,900 mile trip to Golden, CO last week and had no problems with motorhome. Jayco needs to put a better (Heavier duty) steering control on the front. We had high winds and I had to really fight the steering. Front was all over the road!!
Have found no major problems with motorhome so far. Pull a 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and averaged 9mpg.
