I'm on my 4th RV...the Pinnacle wasn't perfect on delivery but the foundation seems good and we like all the features.

I have a 32RLTS. Have not had any problems. It has not been back for any repairs. Its a 2020. About 7,000 miles and a dozen trips. One of them a very long trip.

I think a lot depends on the dealer. When buying an RV. You should be shopping for a the ideal model and a good dealer.

Our dealer found several small issues prior to PDI. Including a small water leak behind the pantry wall.

During PDI we found 3 pinched wires on the slides. And a few cosmetic issues. Everything was fixed in a few days.

Good luck with your repairs.

This should open your eyes to the fact that EVERY one has a set of problems. Go ahead and try it, great way to spend a few hours.
Every Jayco model uses the same wood vieneer’s, same wood structure, same roofing material etc. Bells and whistles being most of the difference with, what you call ‘higher end Jayco’s. Everything mentioned above is pure junk, meant to look good and fall apart in 5 years. My son has a Riverstone and the quality between his coach an my Jayco coach is clearly night and day. He has no tape vieneer anywhere, nice cabinets that can take a beating, a beefy frame that has no reports of cracking. yes he has had a few minor issues, but nothing close to what people here complain about. I’ve been to many forums and tell you in a heart beat that Jayco wins the 1st place trophy for the most complaints….

You get what you pay for and clearly you pay a lot more for a Riverstone than a comparable Pinnacle from what I see. To some, that extra $30 grand may be worth it. For others, putting up with tape veneer and not beating on their cabinets may be worth that extra money in the bank.
