Who is fixing the paint and what was the nature of the defect(s)?

I am having my buddy take care of it. He owns a high end detail shop in the area. The paint had bad swirl marks from the factory. Jayco is taking care of it under warranty.

I wonder if Jayco switched who they contract out the painting to? My 2014 had nothing going on like that!

I don't know. Per my buddy, it's really bad. Looks like an amateur did it. I know when we went to the factory, the rep said the paint department was backed up. Figure they were just getting them out as fast as they could. I'm just glad they're taking care of it and let me use my guy.

Wow I am glad you had someone local that you trust that could take care of that. Our unit was built around the same time and no issues like that.

Best wishes on a good repair.

Let us know how it turns out. Wonder if they buffed it out too early.

Are the base colors having to be re-shot, or just the top clear? Or just re-buffing?

I have the same paint scheme on mine, and, while I do not have the swirl issues you have (had) I would save in general, the overall factory paint job is piss poor - obvious they are working too fast, with inexperienced prep and paint personnel. Just take a close look, Iím sure you will find over spray, orange peel, and paint sags if you look hard enough......
