Maybe is has something to do with Thor acquiring Jayco recently. I don't know. I bought a 2016 HMD this spring.

Poor sales might explain why I have seen many other Jaycos, but I have never seen a Jayco aframe on the road or at a campground. Too bad we never got our own forum. I end up going to forest river's a lot. We can be the few and the proud.

Whats with this Thor aquiring Jayco stuff?
I just traded my 2015 12HSB in last week, on a Jayflight Slx. I had always thought the a-frame concept was cool, and when Jayco came outwith one, i was hooked. Yes, it does go up in less than a minute, and great to tow. Ours had a few issues, but our biggest concern was when i noticed one of thefront skylites leaking. I hate water leaks..... i've gone thru the Lite Hawk water leak disaster. When i realized theyhad stopped buildingthem, i went online and did some shopping, and when we were offered a good price on ourtrade, we went for it. Ifnot, we would have kept it...... we loved it, a terrific trailer. The biggest problem.... too much $ for them.

We owned an Aliner for a couple of years. It was a great product - tight as a drum and very durable. I was a member of the Aliner Owner's Forum. They had really good information and lots of mod tips.

Was on our Dealer's website the other day and i was browsing thru the used pop-up section, and noticed the 12HSB we had traded in in July is back on their lot. It was sold shortly after we had traded it in, and now it's back. Can tell it's was ours because they used the same stock #, also the emergency exit sticker on the big window was stuck on upside down! They really are great little trailers. Not sure if you can blame it on slow sales, or the fact that Starcraft no longer builds a pop-up, Jayco is down to one series .... think they are using all possible manufacturing space for profitable travel trailers etc.

Same here I had a 2002 aliner sport and upgraded to the 2015 12 bsb model I like it but wish there was a little bit more bed space at least a queen I'm woundering if the space that's closed off in the fro until can be opened up I think with that space a queen will fit if anyone has tried it I would appreciate some feed back thanks

I sealed my skylights and fan housing a few months after buying my unit, I didn't have any leaks but wanted to stay ahead of any future problems. After researching products I really wanted to use the 3M Extreme Tape but the minimum purchase was six rolls at about $80 a roll, So I ended up using two inch black Eternabond tape, cleaned the roof and skylight edge real good then applied the tape. If you go this route make sure you purchase the Eternabond roller, its expensive but it weighs about two pounds and helps with the bonding, as I rolled over the tape I could see the adhesive oozing from under the tape edge assuring a good bond. After a few days I sealed all the tape edges with clear OSI Quad caulk, This is what Jayco said was used to seal the skylight at the factory. This problem seems to affect all Aframe campers not just Jaycos, you can now order the Forest River Aframes without any skylights I would sure go this route if I was ordering. We camped along Lake Michigan last summer on the beach with 50mph plus winds and a dumping of rain for hours and no leaks anywhere.
