Sorry to hear about all your problems. We have had several TTs over the years (none Jayco), and now have a Jayco 5er. Couldn't be happier. It's a 2004, but has had VERY few problems, all associated with age, not Jayco quality. If and when we get another unit, it will definitely be a Jayco. Seems to me that you just got a Monday or Friday built unit. All manufacturers have bad days, just like humans.

Second that!! Problem is, many see those "Montana's" as strictly "Montana's" and not a Keystone. I've been there and don't that.
At least Jayco has a 2 yr factory warranty and stands behind it. Those Montana's are complete junk. Pretty, but junk.
I'd trade that "Problem Jayco" in and start over. Every company has problems. Hopefully the crew that built that one have all quit.

Unhappy Poor quality

I have a 2010 365 BHS and it has been nothing but problems. My previous Jayco was a 2004 and it was bullet proof. I had no problems with my 2004. My new camper just went out of warranty and I am sure it will cost me some money. Jayco will not fix the bunkhouse air and their response was, " that is the way it is built." This spring I will add a 3rd A/C unit to the back bunkhouse for 1,000 dollar. My fifth wheel has been in the shop at least 5-6 times. Most of the problems are from poor qualilty from Jayco. Two camping trips, Jayco had to sent me parts, or the camper would not make it back to the dealer for repair.

If anyone has any questions or comments I would be glad to hear them

IF you think you are unhappy with Jayco ... just wait till you buy the Keystone... I had an entire wall fall off mine going down the road. Never again a Keystone...

Seann, as time goes on I am beginning to think our Montana wasn't so bad after all. If I could get our old trailer back and all the money we paid for our Jayco I would do it in a heart beat.

Disappointing to hear people have major issues with their Jayco TT. Like every company they all make a lemon or two.
Ford, GM, Dodge and Toyota all make vehicles and some of them end up in the shop repeatidly. Just the luck of the draw.
Costs are going up and quality is going down in some cases just so we can afford these toys. Wouldn't say one TT is better
than another but I would say that from my experience, Jayco has made the most consistant TT's in the market.

We got our 351 RLTS in May this year. There was a 3" long screw that came up from the hitch area thru the floor in our walk in closet that went right through my wife's foot. The cabinet doors for the entertainment center are ALL stripped from over tightening, The dealer looked at me like I did it.... They cut thru my entire kitchen area flooring when they cut the carpet for the slide and that is being replaced, I am sure it will not look like a factory finish. The bathroom towel closet has broken wood supports from over tightening of hinge screws. The shower leaks from under the glass door tracks. There is a big gap in the bedroom slide where it should seal when it's opened. The dealer says they jusst give you a piece of foam to stuff in there while it's open???? WTH? And there is a sewer smell in there non stop in the bedroom closet area. That's all I can think of at this time. I haven't checked the AC units, but I will check the screws before I take it back to Wisconsin for the winter.
