We've had our Pinnacle 36FBTS for about 5 weeks now. It stays in an RV park and is used every weekend. I have not had any major issues yet, just acouple of minor things. Door lock adjustment, thermostat in the B/R was off (dealer sent me a new one to replace it with), and a couple of other little tweaks.
We are very happy with it, the quality is there. No other issues to mention.
As you know RV's are like any thing else put together by humans, some will have problems while others will be trouble free forever. I'm sure there are MS owners that have had their share of issues too.

Good luck with whatever you decide on...

We took delivery of our 38FLSA at the end of March and love it. Have had no problems thus far. We keep it at a permanent site. I believe the quality is much better than the others we looked at... Bayhill, Montana, Cardinal. We even went to the factory and saw ours on the line, I was impressed the most on the quality of the cherry cabinets. The Mobile Suites are definately higher quality and higher price. The campground owner has a new 2015 mobile suites rear living parked next to us and you can tell. The things that are better on the DRV are items like the double box frame, Mor Ryde independent suspension, 17" wheels, disc brakes, and the plumbing setup where you can access a copper manifold that is labeled with each faucet and shut off if there is a problem. I would have looked at them also if they had a front living floor plan. I dont think you will regret getting a Jayco. Just my 2 cents.

We have an annual site as well and have owned a forest river fifth wheel product for 13 years. Had nothing but problems. Never again. Overall the jayco owners I know have had less issues than all the others combined.

We've "bounced " ours down the road for about 4,000 miles so far and no issues other than the ac/heat-pump which was a Coleman issue.

We have a 38flsa. We had a KZ front living room before this one. We like our jayco a lot. Not having a mobile suits - I can compare them. We love the front living room. Would buy it again.

We have had a jayco premiere and have towed it well over 20 thousand miles in last 3 years. Some minor issues and jayco has taken care of us wherever we are. We are waiting on our upgrade to the 38fsla supposed to be in first week of July.

Our 2016 Pinnacle 38FLSA has arrived at the dealer

Our 2016 Pinnacle 38FLSA arrived at the dealer on Thursday June 18th. They are 85 miles away from us but called and asked if we wanted to come and take a look at it prior to delivery. We ran over there (Bozeman) to see it and it is really nice. The Craftsmanship looks real good. There are quite a few changes to the outside from the 2015s. The rear taillights are two vertical ones about 2" X 10" on each side and the clearance lights are small round Leds at each locations instead of the old lens type.

The mirrors behind the stove have been replaced with tile. The couches are smaller with two cushions instead of three. The fridge is a 23 cu ft two door side by side Frigidaire as is the microwave. The TV is a 58" Furion (Boo) and the BR tv is a Saikyo 32". The awning is Carefree and is Black, white, and Gray patches but looks nice (21') We are #5 in line for delivery so it will be mid week until we get it. Drooling at the mouth. It has Goodyear G614RST 14Ply tires that I ordered from the factory so shouldn't have the blowout problems that I had from the TowMax on the 2014 Pinnacle 38FLFS.
Can't Wait!!!

Been full timing in our 2105 FLSA for 7 months and absolutley love it, no regrets! Buy from a dealer, not online, as it is a mechanical item and things do break. Unquestionable warranty and quality from bith our dealer and Jayco. If I hit the lottery tomorrow, I would buy the Jayco FLSA all over again!
