Thinking of buying Jayco

My wife and I are thinking of buying a 2014 Eagle Touring. We are new to this and any information would be appreciated.

We currently own a 2014 Jayco White Hawk. This was our first camper. We have had nothing but problems with the camper, the dealer, and Jayco. (warranty repairs)

We are planning to go full time in Spring 2016 and are looking for our full time rig. We had decided on an Open Range 3X model, but now understand that Jayco has bought Highland Ridge - Open Range. In light of that information, we are now considering DRV Mobile Suites.

Bottom line, I would not purchase another Jayco.

Normally you get what you pay for. Make sure you get what you want to use it for. We have bought 6 trailers, starting off at a coleman popup from our tent accommodations We like camping. Now we like travelling and camping.

If you are seriously full-timing, you need to spend as much as you can afford to get as much fifth wheel as you can, if you cut corners, you will not be happy. DRV is pretty near top of the line. Jayco, probably not even in the running as a Full Time rig.

If you are still looking...

Bought new Jayco Eagle HT few months ago, liked it, decent quality for the price, but plagued with problems that the dealer needs to fix, meaning a warranty issue. Jayco has a 2 year warranty, which means its 2 years before they fix anything. Most of it was minor, but the final straw came with sitting in bed and seeing water SHOOT out almost 18 in from the electrical wall connection on my side of the bed. Then i noticed the front was a LOT heavier, meaning full of water...At this point I am in month 6 of ownership and said enough is enough, traded it in on a Cedar Creek Silverback and yes I lost $10k, but worth to avoid internal rot and mold. Overall we like the unit, but the warranty is not worth the paper its written on...note we contacted Jayco several times and they just said sorry 'bout that go see a authorized dealer, making zero effort to support or anything.

The ultimate parent company of Jayco/Open Range/Highland Ridge is...is...drum roll, please....THOR. 'nuff said.
Jayco enjoyed a good rep for many years, but they sold to Thor and guess it just isn't the same any more.
