I looked at a 2006 Keystone Copper Canyon Sprinter 2591RBS with a floor plan I like. I also like a Jayco Jay Flight 25RKS, but I have yet to be able to see one at any dealer short of ordering one.

I can easily tow both with my 2500 Savana.

Keystone has a lot to offer including an aluminum frame. Jayco is wood. Keystone has only a one year warranty, Jayco has two. Keystone slide is a full size giving more interior room than the Jayco.

Both units seem to liked based on my searchs on RV.Net.

I am looking for any comments as to the one year vs. two year warranty. Would this stop anyone from buying the Keystone? Has anyone owned both a Keystone and Jayco that could compare these manufacturers.

As a further note, the Copper Canyon seems to be a new model for 2006 in the unit I like. It looks like the sidewall construction is much like the Citation line that is now discontinued.

Thank you in advance for any comments.

Jayco makes a good TT but the Jay Flight does not compare to the Keystone. The Eagle line of Jayco would be a comparable TT. My reason for this is the lack of interior storage space in the Jay Flight and wood framing not Aluminum. The Jay Flight is the entry level TT IMO

I may be wrong but I think Keystone has a 2 yr. warranty for 2006. Will call my dealer to check


Currently truck less and trailer less. Sold the 2500 Ram and ordered a 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie Crew Cab SWB 4X4 Eco-diesel. Or as I have been told on here, the slowest & weakest truck on the market

I agree, need to compare apples to apples so the Eagle line would compare since it too is Alum/fiberglass. Also, the interior finish is more in level with the Keystone, etc.

We have owned 3 Keystone Sprinters and have always looked at other makes before purchasing. Jayco Eagle is comparable to the Sprinter, but the Keystones always seem to have an edge when it comes to the interior finishing.Usually if anything goes wrong it will happen during the first year so the warranty (2yrs.) isn't a major issue. The warranty on component parts is the same.

We have the Keystone Sprinter 259RBS and I love the floorplan and storage compartments galore on ours. For the size of this TT the kitchen is nice with lots of cabinets. We put a wood cover over the range for more counter space. Also made the dinette into a daybed with lots of pillows so we have 2 couches and use oak TV trays. Haven't owned a Jayco but looked at some and they seem like nice units.

Good luck

Our TT is in our sig. We love the Copper Canyon! Had some minor cosmetic issues but the dealer squared it away in the off season. We looked at the Jayco as well and it is a nice unit, but the bathroom with the large corner shower was the kicker for us.

Good luck with your search.

Thank you all for your comments.

I am seriously leaning to the Keystone Copper Canyon 2591RBS and not worry about the one year guaranty. I trust the Keystone dealer.

We've had our Sprinter for over a year now and only had one minor warranty issue after 16 trips. We looked hard at the Jayco before purchasing our Sprinter, we're happy with our decision.
