"The 08 Geyhawk 31 SS is our first RV and we did our homework before buying. Jayco reputation is well earned with the features and value for $ they put into their products. 2 year warranty is the best as well. Dealer is even more important than manufacturer. Been extremely satisfied with the unit. You have to make sure the slide seals are properly set or you can get some rain leaks .... but not hard to do at all. 5 out of 5 rating." CB in Michigan

RickWe bought our first new in December of 2009. It was a 28' class C Jayco Greyhawk. The overall appearance and the layout is great.Unfortunately, that's where it ends. The quality and the craftsmanship is terrible. They have put this thing together with the cheapest components that money can buy. I know that my next motor home WILL NOT be a Jayco!!!
Jon PThis is classy. Looks more like a class A inside. Jayco are a cool company and make a cool product.
AndyBeautiful. I've good experience with Jayco. I had a Jayco Flight travel trailer for years. Going to look at this.

BarbiedollWe love Jayco. We have had 3 jayco trailers; a 96n26 ft, a a designer 35 ft at a permanent summer campsite, and finally, an older 95 pop up we bought to run around in Wy and Mt. it even had a gas heater, and when we got caught in a surprize snow in Utah in Oct, we actually used the heater. We survived amidst the 40 ft Motorhomes. This looks good. Go jayco.
Ken and Penny RomfordJayco class Cs are the way to go. We traded our class A for a 2009 Jayco Melbourne 29D class C and so far I think it's one of the best things we've done! 3 slides and I really think it has everything we've ever had before and we've had 3 A's and one B. Our last A was diesel (Fleetwood), it was really good but I think the Ford Triton gas engine in the Melbourne is remarkable. We've been up and down really steep climbs with no problems whatsoever. Recommend Jayco.
Jennie DubnerWe've had 3 Jayco's. We had a 99 Designer, a 2003 Kiwi and now we have a 2008 Jay Flight. All quality. I recommend Jayco and wouldn't buy anything else.
Steve & PamJayco - Quality Quality Quality. We have a 1997 Jayco MH. 21' Only thing we'd change -- needs a stationary bed. Wish it was a little bigger. Drives easily. Love the new Jayco's.
Jerry AndersonWe have a Jayco class C - the 2007 Melbourne 29D. Great class C. A few problems to start with that should have been taken care of by the dealer but after that it's been fantastic. Like the layout with 3 slides and find it's easy to drive and plenty of power. Get about 13 mpg but with a toad it goes way down. 2 year warranty is good. We bought the Customer Value Package and I would recommend that. This is my second Jayco and third RV and this is the best. Based upon your experiences, would you buy one of this manufacturer's RVs again?: Yes. Rating: 5/5.
Kenneth RWe have a 2006 Greyhawk. This has been ok but one major problem occurred which was fixed but then occurred again. The bedroom slide leaked and caused the bedroom carpet to be ruined. The slide was fixed and the carpet renewed. If that had not occurred I would have said it was a good buy.
Paul HendersonI've rented a Greyhawk on 3 occasions in southern California in the last 2 years. Love them. If I had time to use it more often I'd buy one for sure. Great motorhome and we've had a lot of fun. Really like the layout of the 31SS model, although we've had a 31FS with the bunks and liked it a lot.

Re: Jayco Slylark travel trailerBillyToddIn comparison, which does not say much for the industry, I feel confident that Jayco is probably one of the best available. BUT, I do agree with the posts on here about customer care, it is a wonder they are still in business if the judging was CUstomer service. My 2008 31V TT has had it's share of problems, the first of which was a lack luster recall on the axles. After the repair of the recalled item, which was to lower the axle set up by placing spacers that provided a 3 inch drop to avoid tires hit hit under side, they did not realign the hitch to a proper height therefore uneven weight distribution to the front set of tires caused both sides to blow out on the next trip. Traveling on the interstate a hundred miles from home with blow tires due to their error was crazy. I have also had the leaks from the water system causing soft spots as another poster said. Numerous other more minor things except one biggy, the wiring was done with the wrong polarity, Yeppers, blown electrical. Fun Jayco experience. Shame of it is, I like the unit and still own it....bad customer service from the manufacturer and the dealership. They are rude!

Re: Camp-Inn teardrop trailerJavabriHmm, seems like some haters here. After doing extensive research, I have found that it seems all teardrops are pretty expensive. The fully loaded Little Guy is 15K. The fully loaded So. Cal trailer is 17K. These seem pretty much in line with the Camp Inn line. The Camp Inns might be a little higher. I looked at the little guy trailers at a local RV dealer, the quality was not really that good in my opinion. Certainly no better than the build quality of a Lance Camper or Jayco trailer. I will be checking out a Camp Inn next weekend. The pictures seem to reflect a good build quality as do the videos I have seen. I'm hoping the build quality is as good as what can be found online. To me, the haters seem to only comment by what they have seen online and never have owned one or seen one in person. Sure, you can get a crap built full trailer for the price of a Camp Inn, but a big, cheap quality full trailer is not what everyone wants.
2013 Jayco Eagle 33.5 RETS 5th WheelNot Happy!A month ago we purchased our 2nd Jayco 5th wheel. Although the Eagle is to be a step up from the Jay Flight, the quality of workmanship is SO poor, we wish we had our 2007 Jay Flight back. We have documented THIRTY SEVEN issues with our new 5th wheel, ranging from cosmetic - crooked light switches and outlets, to unfinished bottom ends on vertical boards on cabinetry, to rocks under the rubber roofing as well as every seam of the plywood sheeting under the rubber roof visible, to bathroom/bedroom sliding pocket door and door jam not lining up at all, resulting in a door that doesn't close, chips broken out of closet door, dents in stereo speaker covers, kitchen drawer that doesn't stay closed even with unit is parked, scratched kitchen counter top, bent/bowed outdoor storage unit door, window shades which don't reach bottom of window, and on and on and on. The old saying "they don't build them like they used to" certainly holds true for this unit. Jayco's reply to our list of issues is that our dealer will take care of these issues. Our 2007 5th wheel we purchased new only had 2 minor issues the whole time we had it which was up till just a month ago. We would have assumed the same from an "upgrade". Needless to say, we will be looking at different brands when we decide to purchase a new RV.

Re: Jayco Melbourne class C motorhomeCapt BartUPDATE: I noticed a lot of people trashing the Jayco support for after market support. Well from my experience they have been very helpful in my questions and have sent me many PDF files for helping me with my modifications. When you have a 2007 unit, you cannot expect a manufacture to fix things for free.
Re: Jayco Melbourne class C motorhomeJeff BullardI bought a 2013 Melbourne 28F and have had a bunch of issues, most of which could not be fixed by local servicer. Passenger Seat and Seat Belt assembly do not allow seat to move. Factory installed refurbished Ford seat incorrectly. The only way to fix this would be to drive to Jayco Factory at my expense. Girard Tankless Heater failed twice, and I replaced with an Atwood at considerable expense. Jayco Service was very UNresponsive to my pleas to speak with someone. When they finally called me, the call was disconnected (they hung up??) and no one ever called me back. They used to build quality. Average seems to meet their standards now, with the exception of Customer Service and Relations - THEY DON'T CARE AND DON'T Help. Bad, bad experiences.
Re: Jayco Melbourne class C motorhomeCapt BartWe have owned a 2007 Jayco Melbourne 29D for 1 year now and we love it. We have taken all around the SE United States. Coming from a boat, I changed a few things that I believe were not good for dry camping. Added more battery juice. Upgraded the Inventor to 1000w. Replaced all the lights with LED. We can watch TV and DVDs all night and then still run either the fans or heater all night and still have plenty of juice in the morning. The only thing that I do not like about the unit is gas miliage and rear clearance. We can get 10mpg if we cruise 55 down the highway. RIGHT??? That is terrible and everyone hates us. As for the rear ground clearance? Well we added a hitch and had a rollor wheel soudered onto the bottom. It will hit if you come at a steap drive way bump too quick. We have to take steap drive ways at an angle slow and then you are good. We love the slides and the roomy feeling you get after you park.
Re: Buying an RVgerrywe are going to buy a class c and have it down to either a 2007 jayco melbourne or a 2008 phoenix cruiser 24' we are looking for some help as to which is the better rv and any problems,ect they have, i guess the the good bad and ugly of each.

2011 Jayco Skylark 22fbvLeeGreat light weight trailer. Went on 5000 mile trip to Yellowstone and Glacier for 1 month. Pulled by Tundra 4.7 liter. Got 12 to 14 mpg. Great to pull.
Re: Rand McNally and RVDA Dealer and Service Location AppfmprdwgJust purchased 2012 Jayco Seneca 38 foot. Cummins diesel and Freightliner chassis. Lots of power, mileage is a true 10mpg. I have over 4000 miles of travel to prove it. King bed, fireplace, 2 slides, 4 TV's. Only thing I do not like is 2 fuel tanks but not same sized and must use DEF (Diesel Emmision fluid). A real pain on the trunk !!!!
Re: Jayco Jay Feather SportHassan Al Shammar I would know open the parachute Possible to send a copy of the Ktalloj
Re: Jayco Melbourne class C motorhomeJohn and RitaWe're just back from a 2 month caravan tour into the Yukon and Alaska. Some pretty challenging roads up there. Our Melbourne 29D functioned perfectly, towing a Honda Fit and accommodating two adults and two grandkids. The sofa and table converted nightly into beds for the kids, a process at which they became pretty adept. Many other folks on our tour had problems with their rigs. We had none at all. A bigger kitchen could be nice, but we are very, very pleased. Just the right size for us.
Re: Jayco Jay Feather SportSC DaveReno - what are Dry, Hitch & GVWR weights on your Jayco? Also, where located? Thanks. scdas3@gmail.com
Re: Jayco Pinnacle fifth wheelCharlene and Paul-Houma, LAWe have a Jayco Pinnacle that we bought new in 2011 and have had nothing but major problems. 2 slid motors out, water heater out, front and back jacks out, corian counter cracked, alarm broken, now microwave/convection oven out and they say they cannot replace. Jayco is the worse company I have ever had to deal with, they are rude, not helpful at all. They will not return your calls and put you on hold forever. We will have to hire an attorney. The list is longer, these are just some of the things wrong. DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM JAYCO
Re: Jayco Melbourne class C motorhomeNew OwnerHas anyone made the shower bigger. We have had the home a short time is there a trick to the tankless water heater. The water in the shower goes hot cold hot cold.
Re: Jayco Jay Flight travel trailerKen R.I just purchased a new 32 BHDS and drop it home 200 miles in a rain storm. no leaks at all. I researched multiple other TT's before settling on this model. for the $$ no other camper can match the quality and features... I bought this camper as a upgrade, tons of room, storage and features that as a family of 4+2 dogs will need. for example. the seating around the kitchen table expands for 2 additional persons, the bathroom is huge and even though it might seem minor the toilet is a real porcelen item not the flimsy plastic units. the windows come factory tinted and you also get real pleated shades not the cheap blinds. the cabinets are all solid wood with good high quality hinges. same with the drawers. I especially like all the bypass valves in the plumbing that allow you to completely manage the H20 system and winterize the entire unti very easily. I go the upgraded entertainment system and already love the set-up. the plat panel TV is a RCA not a no name TV, everything including the antena are digital. and the stereo has so many options such as inside/outside audio, surround sound for the TV, DVD built in and a large display with a clock and Alarm if needed. the fridge, stove and AC are all industry standard and proven to work when maintained....with the exception of the fridge which has a secondary slide out lock mechanism that allows you to prop th door open when not in use.Onedownside that I was aware of before purchasing was the grey water tank drain out...it is not located in a good spot....under the living room slideout which makes it difficult to access. I will try to post updates good or bad as we use the camper.
Re: Jayco Melbourne class C motorhomeMarkintheGardensWe have owned a 2010 Melbourne 29D for a little over a year. First, to jaybird, I think the 38'-8" is a typo. Our 29D is their largest model and I'm pretty sure it's about 31'-8". As far as handling, I think it handles very well. This is our first motorhome as owners, although we have rented a few times. It does react to cross winds and passing semis (don't they all?) We tow a Jeep Wrangler and even with our inexperience we have done well. As far as the actual coach, we bought this one from a local dealership that had it listed on consignment with 8,300 mi. We really liked the layout. Three slides makes it appear much more roomy. It's been perfect for the two of us and our two puppies. However, it seems that we have had more than our share of trouble (AC fan went out, Water heater died). Some of it has been covered by the maker of each component, others have been under our after-market extended warranty. Forget getting ANY help from JAYCO as a second owner. After several months, we noticed the floor in the galley felt "soft". It was discovered that the water system control valve connections were dripping. Apparently they had been dripping for a really long time and probably had not been properly tightened at the factory. JAYCO refused to do anything about the repair. With that kind of QC and zero support, I would not recommend them.
Re: Jayco Pinnacle fifth wheelChArlotte of Edm. AB CanadaOwned a 2011 pinnacle fifth wheel. We started with a 2007 27BHDS then upgrade to a 2009 31BHDS. Last year we bought the Pinnacle (children rarely come with us now) and I love my 36 REQS pinnacle!!!! An avid jayco fan!!!! BRAVO!!!!
Re: Jayco Jay Flight Bungalow destination trailerTomDoes anyone else have a mould problem with their Jayco trailer?
Re: Jayco Jay Flight Bungalow destination trailerTomI bought a Jayco Bungalow 2 years ago. Maybe I got a lemon.. but its crap. None of the slides fit right and the service guy couldn't fix them. Shower doors leaked like a sieve they siliconed them then the bottom broke out of the garden tub. Windows doors ceiling walls all sweat real bad even with a dehumidifier black mould growing in trailer. Jayco's approved repair was to drill two or three holes in through the window frames on all windows, looks like crap. Roof/ceiling dropped around A/C unit. Apparently two roof trusses were broke, the unit has been parked since we got it how did that happen? After being "fixed" by the dealer looks worse than before, by the water stains on the stove and counter I'd say it now leaks. I would not recommend a Jayco product and don't know how to go about getting satisfaction from dealer or Jayco. I've got a 22 month old $50'000 trailer that will have no resale value, due to poor quality workmanship by Jayco and on part by the servicing dealer. We run a campground and have never talked to anyone who has had the issues we've had and gotten no satisfaction.

Re: Jayco Jay Flight travel trailerKrisWe bought a 2011 Jayflight G2 32BHDS after countless hours of searching for a quality trailor. I thought that I had found it. WRONG. My outside kitchen leaked, my windows all condensate and the walls condensate to the point that I have a terrible MOLD issue. I am talking GREEN MOLD EVERYWHERE. My carpet, cushions, cupboards, clothing ...everything molded. Jayco is NOT backing their product. I am furious!! I didn't spend $30,000 to camp in MOLD!!! I have had nothing but trouble getting them to listen!! It is under warranty but they will not cover it says my salesman at RCD Sales in Ohio. I don't understand why the company wont cover this issue !!! POOR POOR Customer Service.
Re:Jayco Baja Camping TrailerKirkWe have an '09 Baja and love it. Off the beaten path doesn't really begin to describe where we pull it. There's a few things that I would change after using this for 3 season. 1. Winterizing instructions for the hot water tank are not clear about proper draining. I thought I had missed something and was an idiot, but I talked to another guy with a 28' Jayco and he did the exact same thing his first year too and it resulted in the same ruptured tank. So basically that's a $500.00 problem. 2. In hard rain water will push past the front seal for the cap-to-body area and things get a little moist so we've fabricated a vinyl bra for that seem to prevent the rain from driving in while in transit. 3. The roof vent unexpectedly started leaking for no apparent reason so we've had to re-seal it. 4. They should've at least painted the bare wood or used treated because we've had to wash mould out from the underside of the cap with mild bleach solution pretty much after each winter. 5. Although the dry box is a great idea it's in a ridiculous spot on the deck. To haul an atv the drybox must be removed. 6. An atv on the deck actually doesn't quite fit with the ramps on. You can make it work because the tires run low pressure so they'll squeeze in. It's the same for dirtbikes unless you angle them slightly, but you can't angle them if there's 3. 7. The water tank is a little small, but we just bring two 5 gallon drinking water jugs and use the onboard for coffee and dishes and we're good for 3-5 days of dry camping depending on how conservative we are. Despite these things we LOVE the trailer. Leaf sprung axle with shocks, 2000 lbs plus carrying capacity, a light tongue weight, trailer brakes, good ground clearance, and a king size bed! It tows awesome and when it's fully loaded, my diesel has no idea it's even there. We even avoided a sudden rush hour traffic halt in Seattle from 50mph to pretty much zero.
Re: 2011 Jayco Skylark travel trailerDonI looked at a 2011 Skylark and the face of the counter was sperated from the top. I purchsaed a 2012 and before I took possession that counter top also had the same problem. of two I saw both had the identical issue so I am wondering if someone else is having the same issue. I think it is a manufacturing problem. Thank you
Re: Jayco Jay Flight travel trailerQuality RV INCSteve, we are very sorry to hear that you are having problems. We always take care of our customers. If you are still having issues with your Jayco, please contact us and we will do everything we can to help you out.
Re: Jayco Jay Feather EXP travel trailerRobertWe bought the Jay Feather 23 B, from day one the water connections leaked under the kitchen sink, when you flush the toilet, the connection shoots water all over the floor, drawers have broken because the support are not well designed nor supported, the Dealer has closed shop, and can get no help finding how to solve problems with the trailer.
Re: Jayco Slylark travel trailerfuture RV buyerThe Skylark 21 front kitchen: Cooktop and sink are both too small and close together. Where are dishes placed to drain after washing? (there is enough room for a double sink).
Re: RVs and alergiesPatrickWWe have a 2008 jayco, the trailer has been "fixed" or so we thought, 3 times since we bought it brand new. The dealer figured out that the moisture is working its way up the dinette slide out, so i guess they are going to fix that, but my concern is the mold in the camper. they were going to spray kilnz on it and we want it the material replaced and somehow we convinced them to replace the material. We have talked about trading in the camper, but we would loose so much on it. The dealer itself has been pretty good in this whole ordeal but jayco wants the quick fix for this issue. Jayco has approved to extend the warranty until oct 2012 but its complete bs that we have to deal with this. anyone else experiencing this issue with jayco?

Re: Jayco Jay Flight Bungalow destination trailer........This trailer looks ideal for my family. I'm wondering though if the dining table comes in a formation that can be turned into a bed. Also I would like to see a picture of the bathroom area and the back bedroom area. Thanks
Re: Jayco Greyhawk class C motorhomeRickWe bought our first new in December of 2009. It was a 28' class C Jayco Greyhawk. The overall appearance and the layout is great.Unfortunately, that's where it ends. The quality and the craftsmanship is terrible. They have put this thing together with the cheapest components that money can buy. I know that my next motor home WILL NOT be a Jayco!!!
2006 27ft BHMJThis is our second Jayco. We started with a pop up. This is our first travel trailer. We bought the 2006 trailer new in 2007. This year after a storm we had significant water damage to the roof. Unfortunately, it is out of warranty. The rest of trailer is in "immaculate" condition. Sadly, Jayco will not stand behind the damage as it is out of warranty nor will our insurance. The repair cost is near the cost of blue book. After only four summers our trailer is "junk." Not sure if we will continue with the Jayco line.
Re: Jayco Jay Flight travel trailerAlison We have only had our Jayco since the end of February. Brand new 2011 when we bought it. Since we have had it, we had a leak from behind the stove due to cracked tubing from where the fresh water is put in, our outside kitchen area was leaking with every rain and after numerous attempts at caulking, we think it has finally stopped only if we don't have it open when it is raining. And now, after only having it in our possession for 3 months because for 4 weeks now, it has been sitting at the dealership waiting to be worked on, the brakes need adjusted apparently and the dealership says it isn't under warranty and it is a "maintenance" issues and our $. Not to mention that the salesman that was so accommodating before we bought it won't even return our calls, and we found out the company has never put the warranty in our name. Found that out after calling Jayco directly to file a complaint. Not to mention that my husband had to leave work to go to the dealership and PROVE it was the camper and not the truck due to inexperienced staff. I can't believe after all the hype that this is what we are experiencing!

Re: Jayco Pinnacle fifth wheelPam RoseWe have a 2011 JAYCO 36REQS Pinnacle. Never regretted buying it. Can only recommend Jayco.
Re: Jayco Eagle fifth wheelPeg1944Like fifth wheels, like Jayco in general (we've had 2 of their RVs, both good) and the Eagle in particular. Our floorplan is real nice love the main living area and the bedroom. This RV is better than our home.
Re: Jayco Pinnacle fifth wheelbuzzzThis is cool but I've never had a 5th wheel they look really difficult to tow and travel with. All my experience is with travel trailers, is there really a difference in handling and towing?
Re: 2011 Jayco Skylark travel trailerKimWe recently purchased our Skylark and drove from BC down the Oregon Coast. We love it, although we are very conscientous of what we put in it, which is actually a good thing as I brought to much in the past. The only comment is where to put a bike rack and what type. We have decided to secure them in the rail in our Nissan Frontier.
Re:Skyline Koala travel trailerHector KThis is a nice trailer at a nice price and we're Skyline fans. My current trailer is a Jayco Jay Flight but this Koala is my next pick.
Re: Jayco Jay Flight travel trailerSteve HowardI bought a new Jayco Swift in March of 2011. I have never pulled it anywhere except home from the dealer in Linn Creek Missouri. It leaked rain water all the way home from the front panels. Tony told me they forgot to caulk the seams inbetween the aluminum panels at the factory. Gimmie a break. These people could be the poster child for POOR customer service after the sale. I am still fighting with them.
Re: Jayco Greyhawk class C motorhomeJon PThis is classy. Looks more like a class A inside. Jayco are a cool company and make a cool product.
