A Few Questions about a Jayco 2005 Designer

I'm new to these forums, but thought I would post and ask if anyone has any advice/thoughts about the Jayco Designer (2005 35 CLQS). I have a few questions:

1) Does anyone have the specs for it - particularly insulation? I can't seem to find them online, and the Jayco archive page doesn't seem to be working.

2) We are considering buying a 2005, which is obviously already 8+ years old. The other option is a new mid-range fiver, something like a Laredo or a Cougar. I realize that the Designer is a better quality camper to start with, but would you buy one that old?

3) Does anyone have a 2005 Jayco, and how do you like it - what do you like/not like?

We are considering using it for traveling for a few weeks at a time, but not full-timing. (Yes, we have enough truck to pull it - Dodge 3500 dually diesel, with a 4.10 axle).

Thank you in advance for your comments/advice!

We bought a used 2004 Designer Medallion 29 RLTS two years ago, and couldn't be happier with it. We have noticed that many of the problems with newer units mentioned on this forum simply do not exist on ours. Such as leaks, roof problems, nails or screws found loose under surfaces, plumbing coming apart, etc. None of this on our unit. The only issue with the 2004 is the exterior decals, which are starting to peel. That we can live with for the time being, and plan to remove and paint when they get bad enough. If the 2005 you are looking at is in good condition, I say go for it. JMHO

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
