We are on our third Jayco. The two year warranty is a big feature for us even though we have never really had to use it on our first two. Our latest unit is too new so far. The fit and finish on this new one is very good.

Been very happy with both of our Jaycos. No problems with the 26BH bought slightly used. Our 27DSRL bought new a year ago, had to have awning motor replaced under a recall. (Came to our house to fix it.) Fresh water tank level indicator not working at present time; will get it fixed before warrantee is up, no big problem though. Drawer under the living room couch/bed gets stuck when pulling it out. Will fix this myself. All of us who own a regular home know the constant attention they require, and that a little preventative maintainance goes a long way to preventing bigger problems down the road.

I have to wonder about campers that have screws and seams and other stuff jiggle loose and come apart. Our Jayco has to endure five miles of horrible rocky road each time we take it out or bring it home. I'm talking max speed of 15 mph, a lot of distance at a walk speed, and we've only had the dining table base screws pull out and one valence pull away from the wall. It all makes me hesitant to take a chance with a new camper!

Yikes! I used to worry about a block of a gravel road that I drove less that 5 MPH because of the dust and pot holes. I can't imagine a 5 mile road. There are things you can do to your trailer to beef up the suspension to better help your trailer. Such as from Mor-Ryde. http://www.morryde.com/aftermarket/s...system-37.html
This may help you avoid the damage that is caused by poor roads. I added air bags to my Greyhawk because of rear sag. However I discovered that the road manners are better especially on rough roads.

I bought new a 2002 Jayco Designer which I kept until last year. It sat on a permanent site in Maine. With the snow, and temp changes I did not have any problems. (None, zero, zilch) Was very satisfied with entire unit.
In 2011 I bought a new Jayco Skylark FKV. I had a loose fixture under the sink which dripped not poured. Called Jayco and they sent me an entire new fixture which I replaced.
Trailer has gone from NH to Florida 6 times. No leaks, no problems loved the trailer wish it was bigger. Was stored outside in NH for 3 winters.
Most people have the attitude " what I own is the best", I am sure there are probably equal, cheaper, more expensive units on the road, but am telling you the truth about my experience with Jayco. Am awaiting delivery of a new 2015 Jayco White Hawk 24RBS and am in hopes that it serves me as well as the other two. Each and every person has their own taste and experiences. I am hoping that whatever you choose you have the same joy I have had with my Jayco's. Good Luck, Best Wishes, Happy Trailering
