Picked up this hurricane "survivor" this weekend for my hunting land. 40' bumper pull with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths and 3 slides, will be enough room for my entire family or when the guys want to get together. I certainly wouldn't want to be trekking all over with it but once I get things fixed up on it, it will be staying in place for a long time.

To the warranty question- just got ours back from its first and what will be only trip to the shop. Warranty is out in a couple weeks. All minor stuff, just irritations but mine is a simple trailer. Jack fell apart about 5 hours from the dealer so that was a DIY job. Still waiting on reimbursement. Propane regulator got a bad leak on the pre flight for the first major trip. Barely had time for Amazon Prime much less to get a dealer apt. Just learn to fix it yourself IMHO unfortunately. I think anything expensive will last more than the year. I'll buy another RV in a heartbeat but the after purchase service is the biggest joke I have ever seen. Called a dealer i didn't buy from.. oh we are at least 6 months out for non customers. BS big time. 99% I'll go used within two years old next time.

Has anyone done underbody storage? See some options I like, but they come with a $300-600 price tag. I would love to get the power cord and water hoses out of the front box. Might have to get some expanded metal and DIY it. Feeling the pain of choosing a small trailer with minimal storage. Front box, truck bed, or inside is it. Trying to empty the front box of stuff I take every time to carry chairs, cookware, etc.

Jayco comes with a 2yr full warranty. They did a recall LED light full replacement on mine, zero issues with service. And I had a small drip at a pec connection when my wife tried to put 200 towels under there. They fixed that, no issue as well as adjust doors to shut better. No issue thus far

There will always be stuff in a new one that will require being redone. They crank them out at a crazy speed and Obadiah & jabadiah are bond to miss something. The after the sale service is usually on dealers lack of quality service providers. It’s hard I’m sure to find good help as the good ones usually have their own service company

That said I’m extremely happy with my dealers handle of all my issues and will buy from them next time as well. My warranty will be up around September

Texas Bob, look on amazon for valterra sewer hose storage. I got the 8ft, holds 3 sections of sewer hose. Ran it near the back of coach from side to side. That took care of 1 tote.

Mine has never been back to any dealer.
(Starcraft by Jayco)
2012 bought in 2012 that now has 14,800 vacationing & to and from deer lease miles on it (truck tracks miles).
When new one oddity was handled with direction over the phone.

The few things Iíve corrected have been at the house jobs.

But it only has 1 slide and 3 tanks. Iíd wager the more dodads you buy, the more things to go wrong.

Dang a 40í bumper pull, I donít think they get much longer.
That one has a unique roofline, congrats on the find!

Stayed at Mystic Quarry on Canyon Lake for 2 nights. Overall good place. Quiet and mostly shaded (Spot 24). A little tricky getting in for bigger rigs. Spots were caliche and pretty level. Full hookups with good power. Hookups were way up front so have long cables/water. Access roads were paved. Clean pool. They did have music Friday night. Price was $68 a night. A little high in my opinion for no cable and no concrete pads. Most spots had a picnic table and a BBQ though.

When looking for an rv park to stay at, where do you look?

Also, what do you look for as your top "must haves" in an rv park?

Where- generally H20 in some form nearby, in Texas anyway

Must haves- full hookups, I can deal with anything else depending on price, scenery and location.

Wants- level pad. Concrete helps with a young kiddo. Nice grass around pad with no ants. WiFi. Cable is nice but WiFi negates that for us most of the time. Picking tables are nice. I travel with my own cooking gear. Grills etc. most donít.

Assuming this is research for a venture- there is one park in Galveston i wonít stay at again. Only place so far on that page of our notebook. Nice place, great facility all concrete super level. Nice pool and small lazy river. Great beach access across the street. No cell service which isnít their fault. Wanted to charge for decent WiFi. Free stuff wouldnt load the google homepage. Then I went to buy some candy on a whim. Several dollars each- so kids can just charge it back to their spot. Money hungry sob. Never again. Know you wonít but donít be that owner.

Definitely not my style either. I hate getting screwed on all the small stuff at places. We just tried to stay in new Orleans at a hotel. They advertised cheap rates, then hammered you on parking. We said screw it and cashed in some points and stayed at the ritz with free parking.

Would a gated park be a perk to you and most? What if it didn't have a pool, is that a big downer in tx?

50 amp service, water and sewer hookup. Mostly level pad, concrete is nicer. Enough room to maneuver around the place. Pool or water access. Otherwise, I have everything else.

2 of them that I have stayed in at the coast were packed in, the staff had to guide you in and they were good at it too.

For quick trips, I don't mind being packed in because most likely your at the beach, lake, town etc. Living full time, I could understand wanting some more room.

Pool is not a deal breaker for me at all. It isn't a huge one for my wife, but with two equal parks to pick from, she will take the one with the pool. I would say unless you are somewhere people go no matter what- riverside New Braunfels etc, not having a pool will hurt you.

We live in a gated neighborhood, so my opinion is likely different than most there too. Its a false sense of security that keeps out the honest folks. At some point every pizza guy nearby will have your code, every visitor unless you change it often. Your investment in a gate provides less of a security return over time. Could even hurt because some folks will leave stuff out thinking its safe in a gated park and be mad when it's stolen from the guy two spots down. I don't think its expected and wouldn't be a big selling point for most. Spend the money elsewhere IMHO.

Syl and I bought the Jayco last fall to work out of until the condo was rebuilt in Port A. Over the last year, we have spent 76 nights in it, set up in Port A RV Resort. Now that we are acclimated to the cozy confines of our doghouse on wheels, we have uprooted and are preparing for the next adventure. 4-5,000 miles up to Glacier National Park, a few weeks in Idaho for fishing, family, and friends, then south through Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson, and return I-10.

Here is our setup leaving Port A this morning.

Ive got my wife convinced not to stay in anymore rv parks if we can avoid it. Every place weve gone ive taken her and showed her areas we could camp in national parks that beat every campground weve been in.

Added 200 watt solar today. This should keep up with my 12volt fridge. It pulls 9 amps at first and 3 amps at 12 volts to keep it cool once temp is reached.
I also bought a igen2500 westinghouse generator. This is an inverter generator like the Hondas.. Its quiet and more powerful. My paper work says I have 2 13.5kbtu ac units. I tried starting the main ac and it would start but only run for about 20 minutes. I crawled up on top got the model number and realised it was a 15kbtu. Bummer. After messing with it I remembered the outdoor 120volt fridge was on. After turning it off I'm able to run the generator 1 ac, lights, and 12 volt fridge on 100 degree day. I put an amp meter and I run 14-15 with that stuff. It's around 13.2ish with just the ac.
I bought a hard start capicitor but it's not in yet. I still cant the back smaller ac to start with generator. It has several fan settings to go through before it starts compressor. I think running the switch through these settings puts too much load on it before it starts.
I'm not going to mess with it during hunting season but will be ordering another igen2500 to run parallel to this one. Should have no issues. For the 20 days of boondocking in Colorado and utah elk hunting the next 2 months I think I'm set up.

Thatís awesome! The biggest thing you can do now to sustain your power needs over night is upgrade and increase your battery storage capacity. That is one of (if not the) the things most people forget about.

Yes sir that's the next step. The battery that came with the camper sucks. I would just buy another and go, but I've read the batteries need to be similar and close to the same age. The battery I have has no label on it. For now I'm good but once I'm back I'm going to buy 2 batteries. I'll remove the oem battery. I can buy another generator for cheaper than 2 batteries, they arent cheap lol.

Stayed at LCRA Black Rock Park. Full service / hookups. Had a very shady spot luckily - 15. Plenty of room and nowhere near cramped. A couple spots would be hard to setup on for larger rigs as they are sloping upward or downward. Not many appeared to be bad side to side though. Water was a little low, not much to do about that. They had a movie Saturday night.

Great thread! I'm going to be buying my first family camper soon. Headed to the RV show in Dallas this weekend. Hopefully I can narrow down my list. It's almost more overwhelming then buying a truck!

I do hear you! We are just about ready to upgrade and actually started looking and deciding not two months after buying our current! It has taken us two years to decide on which to go with.

Picked up a '14 293RES. Almost the same layout as the 303RLS. Good trailer and comfortable. Already had one of the bedroom slide motors go out, but it was easily replaced by me. Since it was bought used, I plan on doing any repairs because no warranty. Put Maxxis tires on it, keep them at max psi, and don't pull it faster than 70 mph and you'll do fine. Blowing a tire can do terrific damage to the underside.

Love it. We put 20kmiles on it the first year. It is only 30', we downsized from a 36' once the 3 boys were out on their own. Haven't had the (stock)tire issues a lot of folks are, but I attribute that to being a smaller unit.

Seeyadowntharoad,


That is awesome! Now this is just my opinion but, the factory E rated tires are a 65mph maximum. I see people doing 75-80 and that is just a recipe for disaster! Iím the guy that runs 60-63 and enjoys the ride and views.

Our Winnebago Fuse 23A on a diesel Ford Transit chassis. Have done a couple of weekend trips, but will be taking it to head out to Virginia for a week next month to visit daughter in college. At 24', it's been great to maneuver around in.

I have thought seriously about getting something very similar to yours. Enjoy your trip!

Sweet Can't wait until I retire Kim and I are going to hit as many state parks as we can in every State we can. Towed it to Roan Maintain Tenn. Spent 12 days hiking and fishing.

Any of you guys ever rented your trailers out through RVshare or a similar site? Got a buddy at the gym that is doing it and making some good money. I’m kind of thinking about during the six months that mine isn’t at the deer lease. Sounds like a could easily make enough to make the payment, insurance and storage fee plus some.

To help insure we get a solid unit we have (will sign their paperwork tomorrow) contracted an independent Certified RV inspector to check the RV out before we sign. When you think about how much of a pain, time consuming process it is to have warranty work done, to me it is a no brainer to have it checked out before hand. If it ends up having too many issues, we will walk away and not sign. We do this before buying a house, why not before we buy a RV?

Before you ask, for what we are having the fellow do, it is going to cost us $495.
