New Jayco Owner - 2013 Jayco Eagle 314BDS

2013 Jayco Eagle 314BDS... we took the plunge and picking it up on Thursday! We had an old pull RV that our family just outgrew... two little ones and my wife and I....

A couple of questions...
> We will most likely be storing it outside... any suggestions on the type cover we should get... and what we should put under the wheels... will be in a grassy filed area... concrete squares?

> We live in South Louisiana... anyone from around this area with any "favorite" spots? Love to hear them...

> Overall... not too many questions just yet... just excited!

Congrats and welcome to the forum! Nice unit. Keep mine outside too, never used a cover.

Welcome to the JOF Afranzo! Nice tt! Ours is about three and half years old and we have never covered ours (where the tt is stored ranges between 30-85 degree's during the year). We check our tt roof at least four times a year, wash/treat it twice a year, and if compromises in the seals show up, we Dicor them. From what I hear, if you do use a 'cover', make sure it is snug (apparently the wind can make it wiggle enough to chaf the sides at the corners). We do cover our tires when stored for more than a month. Congrats on the new Eagle

alfranzo,
That's a beautiful trailer. Congrats.

Look into Carolina Carports to protect it from the elements.
I had one installed in my back yard.

Where are you located? We're in Prairieville, and can suggest many campgrounds.
PM me if you'd like.

Very nice rig, looks really sharp. x2 on the 2x12s under the tires and you can level as needed side to side depending on the ground surface. Not sure on the cover as Ive read mixed things about them trapping moisture, chaffing/rubbing on finished surfaces due to wind etc.

Nice rig! I laid concrete pads to park on and it was worth all the effort. Also, I don't use a cover because all the reasons already mentioned.

I haven't done it yet, but my home base is gravel and I use Lynx Levelers under the tires while here even if leveling isn't needed I just use one layer as a barrier from the gravel.

I *LOVE* My 314BDS

Welcome to the 314BDS family!

I have had my unit for 6 months and have already logged over 25 nights. It is my second home in the summer, and I use it as my mobile ski lodge in the winter.

So far so good. A couple of super minor issues fixed under warranty. Rest assured that you spent your money wisely choosing a Jayco. They could not be nicer when you need something fixed.

Here is my candid review after my first week in the unit. Enjoy!!!
