Coming from a pop up to the "Big" leagues I would have say we finished our first year pretty successful ! Other than my quality control OCD kicking in we had very few minor issues. A warped cabinet door, shower doors leaking, every plumbing fitting leaked antifreeze during the winter, screws protruding through the slide and cracked table feet didnt stop us from doing what we bought it for.
I fixed some of the things ( even though the dealer claimed they did ) and the dealer make good on the other issues. All in all I've towed it from south "joisey" to Maine and created some great family memories !! Cant wait for Memorial Day 2016 to kick off the season... ( unless the weather is that nice and we get a head start )

Add me also to the list of a real happy owner of a 5year old Jayco (2nd owner).i couldn't ask for a better performing TT, I really have nothing to do once I'm parked at my site. Hats off to Jayco for the build quality of this unit.

Haven't moved into a house or vehicle of any kind that didn't need "fixed" to suit me. The Eagle has been great with only cosmetic issues. It does what it was purchased for, provides a comfortable place to stay away from home where I can still sleep in MY own bed.

We sold our X23B after 2 years and 4000 miles later. Only one major issue as our fridge went out and was replaced under warranty. Otherwise, the trailer served us well. We have a 28BHBE on order and should deliver sometime next month...in the meantime we are glamping hiatus.

Great to read all the positive reply's. I think I can conclude that if we didn't have any major issues early on she'll be a pretty good camper. Really glad to see the happy Eagle owners because they are in play when we upgrade from the 24FBS and full time as much as possible (I guess technically that's not full timing?) and spend looong periods of time on the road. I know now that when we trade we will have tons of fond memories, have a bunch now! I know I've met a lot of people in my life that act like once they've bought something new like a car or house, that they should stay like new forever and never have things wear out or break down, even if they put no effort into their investments to keep the in the best condition possible.

Two camping years with my trailer. Radio quit working - dealer took care of quickly under warranty.Have had minor items that I took care of myself.

I have purchased a new house, new vehicles, a new boat, and a new travel trailer. Had some minor fixes that I did myself on all of them. Perfection is pretty elusive - I don't expect it.

Our X23B served us almost 2 years during which we made 20 trips covering about 8200 miles. Apart from the stereo which was defective from the start (and replaced under warranty) I would say it was completely trouble-free except for cosmetic things that were easily repaired.
We sold it to move up is size (I'm sure you've heard of the "two foot-itis" common to many trailer folk).
Our 5th has been relatively trouble-free as well after almost 2 years with 16 outings covering 9100 miles. We have had our tire problems (thank you Tow Max) but I don't consider that a "trailer issue". We had the front cap repainted under warranty at the beginning of the year and it's in the shop as we speak for our first real issue. We developed a nasty leak in the back window which went unnoticed and the water has damaged some of the woodwork. The current report is that Jayco will re-bed the leaky window and repair the interior damage under warranty. There are a few other things that have been damaged or broken that are "cockpit error" so Jayco gets no blame for those.
The things I've asked to be fixed under warranty have been (or are being) and at the end of the day I'm a very happy camper and can't envision ever buying non-Jayco.

P.S.-The thin foam that seals the windows is not very effective. After we get the 5th back I plan to remove and re-bed all of the remaining windows (there are lots) using butyl tape.

Our trailer was small, but adequate. She just turned 50. We had her for 27 years. One nice Summer evening while camping I said to the wife - since we're retiring next year, why don't we buy a new trailer - you know, one that has hot water and a shower, a microwave, air conditioning, and all the neat stuff we really don't need, but would be nice. She said go for it.

We did a lot of research on floor plans, looking at web sites. We decided that a Jayco was what we wanted and found that the right model was in inventory at a dealer only 20 miles away.

The deal went awesome. They delivered it and set it up on our permanent site no charge. The PDI ws awesome - the sales and service were awesome. My wife kept saying "I love it and I'm so happy" the whole first week we camped out. When we got home I found this site and joined.

I guess my research was inadequate. Now I learned that trailer quality is iffy and there are problems everywhere and to make matters worse - my dealer was kicked out of the BBB and they have serious PR issues everywhere (they are a national dealer).

We had a sticky bathroom door, but it has since worked itself loose after being used. We had a ......well, I can't think of another problem. I guess I'm a satisfied customer and now you heard from me.....

Another happy 1 year owner here. The few issues we've had with it were the type that we could fix ourselves. The dealer is 3+ hours away, so taking it in for minor things just isn't going to happen; although, they do have roadside assistance and a service truck that will come out to do the repairs where ever you are.

The one major problem we did have was when the slide was all the way in, the dinette table was rubbing against the side of the kitchen cabinet, damaging both the edge trim on the table and the side of the cabinet. We called the dealer and they sent their service truck around to evaluate, and the service guy said he would have to order a new table top. He did and came back to install it in a slightly different position so it doesn't hit the cabinet when the slide is retracted, and repaired the cosmetic damage to the cabinet. My guess was that they might have used the wrong template when attaching the table mounts during manufacturing, but since it was solved to our satisfaction by the dealer, it's not a problem.

We also had the common problem of blowing the tongue jack fuses whenever it was extended or retracted to its limits, but naturally as soon as I stocked up on replacement fuses, the problem went away. Figures.
