Saw the floor plan on Jayco's website and appears to be a new model for Jayco in 2011. However, specs aren't on the website and I could not find any actual photos of the unit outside of the floor plan photo. Anyone done any research on this unit and if so could point me in the direction of some photos/specs. tks

I don't belive any have been shipped to dealers yet, but some dealers say they one coming into stock soon. This time of year Jayco is still adding stuff to their website..slowely..every day or so!

Instead of opening a new topic on this, thought I would reply to this one. I went out on Saturday and looked at this trailer. My family really likes it. The only faults are no switch in the rear "under" bedroom for lights and no curtain for the upper bunk as the Dutchman has.

I've never owned a Jayco.... well almost never. I had an Antigua (Starcraft) which I believe is owned by Jayco and although the camper wasn't a good fit for our growing family, it was well built. So before I take the plunge on this one, anyone have one? I read that Jayco is a well respected brand. Thoughts? I'm looking forward to a nice upgrade over my current Zinger.

I frequent another forum that has a member who works at a dealership that carries the Jayco brand. He posted some extensive pictures on the site here:

Looks just like the floorplan for the Dutchmen Denali 280LBS that my brother bought back in the spring. I have only been in it a couple of times. It was an interesting floor plan. My guess is that my nephew will end up sleeping in the loft which is open to the living room most of the time and the lower bunk area will be used for storage. It has the rear door for acess to the lower bunk area. Here is a link to one on the internet. Denali 280LBS

If I'm reading that correctly there is an entry hatch on the rear of the unit?

Thats unique and kinda cool. Too bad it only has a queen bed. I want a king bed again.

I'm waiting activation, but that's probably the unit. It does have a slick layout especially for the ages of my kids. In essence it turns the 2 bedroom unit into a 3 bedroom, which is quite handy sometimes. It also allows a couple of play areas, or just a place to read. Jayco quality and service is good right? I am not impressed with the service from Crossroads, at lease prior to Thor, they wouldn't cover a simple roof vent cover which cracked after 3 months.

Well, just spoke with the dealer. Going tonight to do all the paperwork and figure out when to pick it up. Woo Hoo! Regardless of the brand, new campers are fun!

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but my previous Crossroads 5th wheel was the best built and warrantied RV I've owned. Crossroads was always responsive and even covered wear items I was willing to pay for under the 2+5 year warranty. Crossroads is one of the few companies that allows you to pull into their service center in Indiana and have upgrades/warranty/out of warranty work done with an appointment.

Just for the record, I had a lemon from Jayco and would never own another; I guess they didn't like me as I was never treated with the kind of respect others have had from them. But I respect that others feel they are a "good" brand.
