Default Jayco Class B

I havenít seen much posted about Jayco Class B units.

Has my searching been inadequate or is there not much out there?

I am not on Facebook so I havenít looked there.

The twin beds in the Jayco are a little lower than the Winnebago, I find them more comfortable. For sitting.

I took a quick look at a Coachmen but the outgassing stink caused me to flee.

I donít have confidence in Thor.

That basically leaves me considering a Jayco on a Promaster chassis. I prefer gas powered and I like the Promasters.

Isn't Jayco owned by Thor? They could be built in the same place even.

Well, if so then you either ruined my plan or saved me.

Either way thanks.

Time to learn more.

Yup... Thor has snatched up so many companies to continue to degrade the quality of more and more Class B vans... including Jayco.

LOL.. made me laugh! Our inexpensive 22 year old van was built with no particleboard anywhere. All solid oak or heavy oak plywood. To this day, it still smells like hardwood when I open it up.

The materials used in today's factory built vehicles are a disgrace.

There are other Class Bís besides Jayco, Coachman and Thor. In fact, that may be the last place to look.

Let's see... Class B's on a Promaster not owned by Thor... Winnebago, Pleasureway, and Roadtrek... just off the top of my head.

Don't forget about Panoramic. I don't know what their production capacity is but they have IMHO one of the best built production Bs on the Promaster chassis.
