We too chose the 29MV last summer (2015 model) due to; open floor plan, slides on side opposite of camping area, walk around bed with side windows and night stands, lots of bedroom storage, large kitchen counter with again tons of storage. BTW we too are 1st time RV buyers.

You may want to look at the 2017s. A few new features like double fridge door option, upgraded shower doors, skylight above kitchen/dining area, tri-fold sleeper sofa and no carpet throughout.

We got the 29MV because the wife liked the floor plan . Lots of counter space (much more than our last 2 MHs), rides and drives so much better than the other 2. Currently on our second cross country (west coast to east coast and back) so that must say something for it. I've also lived in it for a couple of months either hosting or working. So far so good!

We love our 29MV. For all the floorplan/kitchen reasons sited above. Also I really appreciate all the slideouts being on the driver side; nice big awning area for the side you 'live on' outside.

Exterior storage is somewhat lacking however, but we knew that going in and have made do with what we have available just fine.

Jopopsy, the more storage you have in a MH, the more unnecessary crap you tend to haul around!

We were shopping for a coach back in Feb, had viewed five other models on that day, when we stepped into the '16 Jayco Greyhawk 29MV.

The moment we stepped into the 29MV, the wife was hooked.

Like most everyone here, we love our 29MV .........

We chose the 2015 29MV also because of the floor plan. My mother-in-law gets the queen size bed room and if we open the bathroom door, it creates Nice privacy for her. She keeps the screen drawn so if my wife or I want to use the bathroom we can without intruding on her. Nice amount of inside storage, too.

Same here, went to the SoCal RV show for the 2015 model year and after several class A's and C's. She walked into the 29MV and the rest is history!

Hi JD,
I looked at both the MV and the ME. I went with the 2016 29ME. I like 3 slide outs because the opposing slides in the main area of the coach really gives it a roomy feeling. I also like the dinette across from the sofa when you have guests in. The trade-off is the smaller amount of counter space, but we are going to be grilling out a lot so not a big issue for us. I DID like the bed slide out in the MV better. Out the side instead of the back. There are trade-offs in both, but I think they are both GREAT choices. Good luck!
Joe
