New to Jayco

Greetings from Northern Ontario, Canada!

I've been floating around this site for about a week now and can see it is full of die hard Jayco owners. I currently have a 2006 Springdale 299BHDS which has been a good trailer, roomy floorplan, no major problems. My wife and I had some of the winter blues last week (-38C) and started looking at new trailers and floorplans. (options are limitless) We've narrowed our search down to the 2013 Jayco 32TSBH w outdoor kitchen, elite, and thermal packages. The back room will be great for the kids and we always have friends and/or family with us. We generally don't go to many Provicial Parks or Campgrounds. We have several locations to go were there is no electricty or cell service. Just peace and quiet and lots of fish! I have been towing my 14' Naden fishing boat behind our current trailer. In Ontario we are able to as long as we don't exceed 23m or 73ft. I'm 72ft and have to take my outboard motor off. lol My truck pulls the combination with ease and I still get 12-14mpg. My kids call it the LocoMax cause it looks like a train.
Anyways, is there anything I should be aware of before I sign on the dotted line regarding certain options, certain flaws(nothing is perfect), warranties, trailer construction, trundle bed vs. J-Cube?? We have a great RV Dealer here in town so thats not really an issue. I know the 32TSBH is a fairly new model but hopefully there are a few current owners out there with a little feedback for me.. Any recommendations or feedback is appreciated.

Thanks!

I have a 32TSBH, and we love it. It has a ton of room. We prefer the Jaycubes because they provide a lot more options and are very comfortable. You can move them completely out of the way, fold the bunks up and set up a card table and chairs back there with ease.

If you have any specific questions let me know. I haven't seen one with the outdoor kitchen - kind of curious where they put it.

I just went and looked at the pictures of the outdoor kitchen, pretty cool. A couple thoughts I had:

Decide whether the room in the bunkhouse is more or less than the space taken up by the kitchen. I have 6 kids the sleep comfortably in the bunkhouse, but I don't think they could do that with the kitchen. The fold down bunk where the kitchen is looks to be a single, vs a king that the Jay Cube unfolds to.

Depending on where you camp (& this doesn't sound like to will be an issue for you) that big fold up door, on the end of a 3 foot slide out, could cause clearance issues - with neighboring campers or trees.

You will also loose a big window in the back.

For me, and outdoor kitchen is kind of neat, but I use a Coleman roadtrip grill, Coleman 2 burner skilled and a electric griddle as my outdoor kitchen. A small fridge like that would be neat, but even though getting ice is a pain, nothing keeps the beer colder than a cooler full of ice. Speaking of which, I am looking into ice makers this year....

Thanks to everyone for a warm welcome!
We are looking forward to our new Jayco TT....our first trip will be 5000+km west across Canada and back. We are gonna dip into the states thru Duluth, Fargo, Missoula etc. then back up to Canada near Vancouver. Any recommendations on where we should stop?
@Ranger431 - Thanks for the input. For our needs the outdoor kitchen far outweighs the space lost to the lower bunk. We have a couple of queen airbeds if needed. Loss of a window not an issue for us. Clearance for the flip up kitchen door is not an issue. Where we go there are usually no other trailers in sight and we step out onto a beach. We are blessed with endless fresh water lakes and places to stop and enjoy. When we go to provincial parks we'll have to be aware of that issue. Oh, and don't worry...the beer is always in ice
I'm glad to here you love your trailer. I love the fact the Jayco has the huge fresh water tank, almost double our last trailer. The kids love flushin the toilet over and over.... Have you had any issues with anything yet? I realize it is fairly new still but ya never know. tks

I too have a 32TSBH, and we love it. No outdoor kitchen though. Mine is a 2012, and the outdoor kitchen was not offered. Even if it was, I think I would have passed on it as the interior room is more important to me. If I am not mistaken it is a fridge, sink and small propane stove. I guess it could come in handy. I had only one minor issue with my TT. It was leaking under the bathtub. One connection was lose, and they had not sealed around the water fauset in the bathtub. Mine is kept at a cg across the street from the dealer, and they came right over and fixed it. I don't have the J Cubes, I have the trundle bed option. The J cubes look cool. One member here mentioned that his/her elderly parent could not sleep on the J cubes. If that is your case, keep that in mind. I have not used the trundle beds as of yet. Mine has a fold down table in the back which is nice. I am more than pleased with the construction of the TT. Hope this helps, but in the end, get what best fits your needs
