Nice to see an update, mine has its fair share of issues - most are defects caused by sloppy/lazy line work. I've corrected most myself.

Dissapointed in 2012 330 rlts quality

With trailers you gotta think that you are buying a tiny house for 15-whatever k

You can't expect old world craftsmanship.

Ecfeick, just where do you come up with a 15k figure??? A 330 RLTS will set you back close to 40K.

As for an update, we still have small bubbles on the driver side large slide and the same slide still rubs on the kitchen floor while traveling. Our last problem was with the micro wave with the built in vent. $$$$ Don't bother looking for one at Lowes or Home Depot as it is a "special size". We still really like the floor plan and are planning on leaving it in Az so we won't have to travel with it. We are planning on buying a smaller trailer for use at home. It won't be a Jayco.

Jayco did stand behind their warranty and we never had to fight to get anything fixed. I did have to wait for nearly 3 months to get an $1100 reimbursement. Not having the small bubbles repaired is my decision and getting the slide fixed so it doesn't rub on the kitchen linoleum seems to be beyond the ability of three different Jayco dealers. When the linoleum tears we will just replace it. Positive ending, we still love the floorplan and storage and the way it tows.

Re: Dissapointed in 2012 330 rlts quality

Our brand new 2014 swift 264BH has several little things like excessive caulking, a few bubbles in the decals, one window shade that has a mind of its own and I found several screws on the floor under the couch and cupboards that I can't find where they go. I can't see towing it the 150 miles back to the dealer to rectify those issues. The only real issue I have with it is that the queen mattress is horrible, I wake up feeling 60 years old and im 43.

Ya if you don't get the upgraded mattress the standard is horrible. Felt the same way with ours and we ended up buying a 2 1/2 inch mattress foam....seems to be okay for now but if it doesn't work we might have to buy a better mattress.

Even the upgrade mattress is not very good. Go to CostCo and get a 4 in foam for a queen size bed and it will fit perfectly and you will probably like it.

Hello Clutch. Remember me? I'm the guy a few months ago was searching all over the Midwest looking for a 2012 330RLTS without any luck. We were trading in our 2007 Eagle 322FKS for new. Well after finally giving up we went with the 2014 Cougar High Country 321RES. You can see one here .....
The price for the unit was $32,000 out the door (tax-plates everything). Turns out this unit is longer and lighter than the Eagle was.
Sorry to hear you're still having problems with your unit. Hopefully Jayco will eventually take care of them.
When we picked up our new trailer in May my wife checked all the walls for staples. Our Eagle had staples everywhere and I was always pounding them back in. We also had some delamination problems with the rear sidewall. The difference is quality between the Eagle & Cougar High Country is amazing.
Good luck to you.

A lot gets missed on that walk-thru inspection at the dealer. The tech doing the inspection is over booked and the buyer is too elated to focus on the multitude of possible issues. We missed the bad decals, a stripped cabinet door hinge over the bed, short battery cables, a list to one side, low tire pressures, bins with poor locks, ...and the big one a propane leak, although my wife said she could smell propane - but then she always seems to smell something wrong. Almost all have been fixed under warranty. Piece work may be the issue, or having 2 (or 3) languages spoken on the production line, or just too much human error. Any way, RV manufacturers need to up their quality inspections, way too many problems.

I've read in 2014 the Denver Supreme mattress is available, read good reviews on this mattress.
