Positive Jayco comments

I read all of the comments about the problems Jayco owners have and now I would like to hear some of the good things about our rigs. Forums are always a good place to vent your problems but let’s give this a try. I imagine this will open a huge “can of worms”.
Just to clarify a few things— I’m not an employee or representative of Jayco but simply a very satisfied owner of my 2nd Jayco fifth wheel. My first was a 1982 Jayco 29 footer that I kept for 15 years and enjoyed with my family, hunting, fishing and simply camping. My new 2018 Jayco Pinnacle FBTS is my retirement pride and joy.
We are in our 3rd week of a 6 week spring vacation to Florida, traveling from the frigid north. We have had NO issues with any function on the rig. Everything works exactly as it should. The only problems have occurred when the operator (me) didn’t read or ignored the instructions. All of this may change tomorrow and I’m sure I will have issues as the RV ages. I can’t comment about dealing with Jayco since I have had no problems.
Keep it positive, if possible, and have “Happy camping!”

Well I had my Jayco 7 years and it never went back to a dealer for service if that counts. The few minor issues that arose I fixed myself. Solid unit.

I don't think that many of us that have had positive experiences take the time to post about it often enough. Maybe it is a fear of putting a Jinx on ourselves talking about it. But not many come to an Internet forum when they don't have questions or problems that they are looking for a solution to.

With that said, we just did our 1st weekend of 2018. That makes almost 60 trouble free nights since we took delivery last May. Of course now that I said that out loud, I will go home to find the roof leaking, all the cabinet doors broken, and a colony of squirrels living in my fridge.

We're on our 3rd Jayco that we bought new. A pup in '93, a Kiwi 17a hybrid in '03, and our current trailer in '13. All have been solid relatively trouble free trailers. No complaints really.

We have had good luck with our coach. As I recently posted there have been a couple of leveling system issues (factory induced) but I think I may have resolved that now. The only other issue is our fridge - the freezer doesn't know when to stop cooling. I will fix that one way or the other.

All-in-all it's a good solid unit, we are happy with it and have had a lot of fun in it.

My 2015 Eagle HT several issues, but I now have a 2017 Eagle and the only issue to date was a dimmer switch over the kitchen table that would not shut off. Replaced it with a toggle switch and all is good. Very happy with this trailer.

I have been pretty happy with mine.
You will not confuse any travel trailer and the word "quality", they simply don't go together.
The one major issue I had with mine was a bubble in the front wall.
Jayco authorized a 3rd party repair service and shipped a new front wall, no questions asked.
I think people who don't/can't take care of the minor stuff, are less satisfied than those of use who do.

X2 and I'm going on 5 years as the 2nd owner and it's a 2010.
In those 5 years I have around 400 days of camping and around 35,000 miles.
