We have a Jayco JayFlight-G2 23FB. It's been two years now we and love it! Nice size for us and our style camping. Our previous trailer was a 1991 Jayco 18RB which we traded in on this one. Both were virtually trouble free from the "git-go".

20 to 25 ft is a very small trailer. Are you limited by the tow vehicle ratings...what will you be towing with?
And are you doing occasional camping trips, will you be camping in cold weather or year round? Confirming it's just going to be 2 adults?
Jayco is a good starting place, but depending on your needs...there are many, many great RV Companies that may meet you're needs!

How many people will be camping in it? Do you want rear lounge or rear kitchen? What are your must have's?? Please give us details on your tow vehicle to make sure it is a good match for optimal towing experience.
Were on our 3rd Jayco. It has been a good brand for us that's why we keep sticking to it.
I cannot think of Jayco under 25' long that should cost more than $24k. Most should be in the $15-20k range. To help you more, please give more information. How many people? What is your tow vehicle? What kind of uses?

We are looking at buying our first Jayco travel trailer. We are looking for 20 to 25 feet any recomendations or other trailer manuf as we have a budget of about 24,000
You do know that no one here can answer this question the way it is written, right? Too many variables.
Also -- the floorplan of the trailer you end up with is a very subjective decision. You will have to actually walk through some trailers and decide which floorplan(s) suit your needs best. Think long and hard about that before buying because if you "settle" something that you don't like it will bug you ever camping day.
When you have walked through a few units and have some more of an idea of your real needs then maybe the forum can be of more precise assistance.
For now, and I can say is -- there are lots of options in that size range and for that price. Do a Google search for RVs and start there, then find some local dealerships and pay them a visit. Take notes and then ask your questions. A good place to start since you mentioned Jayco is the Jayco Travel Trailer page.
Jayco makes a nice trailer, but after seeing them being built, they are just average. No special or superior methods or materials used. They now use Lippert frames and axles and chinese tires like almost every other company.
Now is certainly a good time to be buying an RV. Most dealers are hurting in this recession. I just picked up my new Jayco 19RD for a little less than $15K and it was loaded with options. I suspect you can pickup the 22 ft model of Jayco for not much more. About 30% off of MSRP is where you should be for price.
