The Jayco Precept - model 24SDS - has a really nice floorplan arrangement. This is the only floorplan available at the time of this review (8/09). With a double bed and a well thought-out bathroom arrangement the rear of the coach is standard. Forward however there are options. The dinette has the option of a comfort lounge and sofa table and the cab-over bunk can be arranged as an entertainment center. As you can see from the pictures above, the quality of all the fixtures and fittings really good...
