Just back from the first trip and... this thing is awesome!

The floorplan worked out great for us! My first mod was making a platform in the back for pack-and-plays (baby cribs). We have twin 1-year olds who are too little to use the bunks as they are intended. I moved the mattresses on both bottom bunks up to the top bunks and use this area for storage. I took a scrap of OSB from the garage that spans between the bottom bunks and screwed some 2x4's underneath to keep it from sliding off either side. I added 1" rails to keep the girls from shaking the beds off of the platform. The pack-n-plays fit end to end across the width of the trailer so the girls have a bit more headroom when they stand-up in the middle area. This worked out awesome and they are a bit seperate in the bunk room so they sleep better than our previous arrangements! Our 4-year old couch crashed on the J-steel and seemed to do just fine. I'm sure all three will be in the bunks before we know it!

Set-up seemed much easier and faster. The electric tounge jack is a nice option. I also just got a 3/4" chuck for my drill for the stabilizers - also a very awesome move! I finally invested in one of those sewer hose holders that hold a steady downhill in the line. The whole thing just seemed to go much faster and easier! It also helps camping somewhere level

Functionally, the trailer is flawless. Everything did what it is supposed to. The only complaints would be a lack of fit and finish. There are lots of little touch-ups, construction debris, and other things you shouldn't deal with for this kinda money. I made a nice list to bring back for the dealer when they fix a small dip in the floor (already had arrangements to fix in our purchase agreement.

So far I'm feeling good about going Jayco again and I think we nailed it on the floorplan!
