Pinnacle on Front Cover of Trailer Life

Got our Trailer Life magazine today.

They have the 2012 Jayco Pinnacle on the front cover.

Read the article, they reviewed our floorplan.

Pretty much standard TL review nothing negative in the review.

Not trying to one-up the Trailer Life review nor hijack the OP, but we've had our new Pinnacle 31RLTS on a month long cruise from the Midwest to the Smoky Mts and to the Florida Gulf Coast. So far so good- no problems of any kind with the 5W or the TV! We will start making our way west along the coast to Texas, then make a right turn and work our way home. I give the Pinnacle 2 thumbs up, 5 Stars, A+, etc.

I sure like the Pinnacle, but Larry's experience has made me leery.

Larry's experience has me concerned too.

Lets hope it is a isolated case as there are many happy Pinnacle owners that have had no issues (Us Included)

I will keep watching the outcome and resolution on Larry's Pinnacle.

At least his roof is smooth and glued down to the wood.

Even though there is another Pinnacle, that I am aware of, with the same exact problem in another part of the country I believe for now at least the issue is isolated. The proof of that will be to watch and see if there are any recalls now on later models as the earlier models do not seem to have this problem.

With ours now seemingly fixed, but I will be skeptical for awhile, hopefully the other unit with the same issue will also get resolved.

Thanks all for your concern in our situation.

Larry,

We stopped at a Jayco Dealer yesterday to get a couple of minor warranty items taken care of and they had a new 36KPTS on the lot.

We walked through it while we were waiting on our repairs as we had never seen one in person.

Wow it sure has a lot of kitchen storage, if DW had that much storage, we would not have to go the the store for a month!!!!

Rob,

When we were 'looking' we were leaning towards a different model until we saw the 36KPTS then it was a no-brainer.

Wife does a lot of crafting and all that storage was just what she wanted and needed to keep her 'stuff' in.
