A great awd off pavement RV as long as you never leave your driveway. This is the 4th RV I have owned and I really want to love it, but I don't. It is the first year for this model so it is not surprising to have issues. There are so many design flaws and components that just don't allow this unit to be driven off pavement or for boondocking. Ford did their part, Jayco did not. No ceiling vent, water tank siphons water almost immediately after filling, no Jayco manual ( and they have no intention of creating one ), window bug screens don't fit snuggly in their frames so insects of all sizes easily again access to the interior, drawer latches are in the wrong position so drawers continuely slide open, floor is buckling as the glue they used doesn't appear to hold the floor down, cupboards arrived without the struts, the wet bath is a terrible design and bathroom floor is not solid, dining area sitting is extremely uncomfortable, dining table is permanently fixed to the floor and is awkward to sit at., has a useless skylight where a vent fan should be, the bedroom closet doors swing the wrong direction which makes using them extremely difficult. The Granite Ridge handles really well in all driving conditions. The power train, suspension and all the chassis customizing is phenomenal. I like all the storage, I deleted the outdoor kitchen option and removed the propane tank. The gear garage is huge and easily accessible. Beds are comfy, lots of light and good air circulation in the bedroom. The bedroom is not designed for tall or overweight individuals. In fact the coach would not suit large people at all. The solar panel, battery, inverter and generator supply lots of power. We have had no energy issues yet. The portable stovetop and microwave/convection oven do their job efficiently and don't suck much power. Good lighting, heating and air conditioning. TV works well with good imaging. The outdoor awning is great and the wind sensor on it works well. We just did a 6000 mile journey with it through Oregon and Utah and gave it a good testing. We are now dealing with all the warranty issues and will write another review later. We want to Love it.

Stay away from this class b camper! I purchased in January of 23', had a failure in the charging system for the battery and it went to dealership in February 2023. While at the dealership the coach battery CAUGHT FIRE and created a lot of small damage. Currently it is August and the Warranty department at Jayco are ignoring the problem and giving me the run around. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!

I wanted to love my Jayco Swift Li, but unfortunately, it's not met my expectations. The Li model with the 48-volt lithium battery and inverter cannot sustain or operate onboard systems as intended. The system loses connection whenever I unplug from shore power and drive, meaning I must do a soft reset every time I return to the campground. It's inconvenient and problematic, especially since I use the van as my primary vehicle while on trips. In addition, the Renogy system, while innovative, is not user-friendly. The rooftop solar won't bring in enough power to register a charge, let alone charge anything inside the RV. I can only get enough solar when I attach a portable solar panel to the external solar port. I've tested the system in full sun in Arches National Park and Phoenix, AZ, from multiple angles to no avail. Troubleshooting takes hours with the Renogy techs, and if and when the system works correctly, it resets, forcing me to do a hard reset of the entire solar and battery system. The Renogy battery is so complicated that even the RV techs where I purchased my RV have trouble operating the system (even while on the phone with tech support). I believe the Rengogy system is a good product, but it's just not ready to be placed on a consumer product. Since the van has no propane or generator, everything operates off electricity. The air conditioner isn't strong enough to cool the van's interior, even while on shore power and in temperatures under 80 degrees. Likewise, the 30-amp electrical isn't strong enough to handle the Timberline heater. On more than one occasion, my Power Watchdog trips my electrical connection from 30-amp shore power. This happens when my AC is on a high setting or when I have the heat on and anything else inside the van (like the max fan). I never operate the induction stove, AC, or anything requiring more power when the AC or heat is on. I understand how RV electrical systems work, and I don't have these issues with my Airstream trailer (also powered by lithium and solar). Aside from the major electrical issue, the van is poorly insulated, and the sliding windows fall off, rendering them useless. I've had my windows repaired, and several fell off again within a day of bringing my RV home from the shop. I've had other warranty issues with the van, but some are common problems found in most RVs and are not worth mentioning because it's the nature of the RV industry. I have owned eight RVs, and I've never believed that a product wasn't consumer-ready as I believe this RV to be. I love the Dodge Promaster Chassis, and I am happy with the interior finishes, the floorplan, and some of the extras on the van. If the electrical system worked even part of the time, I'd not worry, but that's not the case. I hope Jayco and Entegra work to find a better lithium system because these campervans would be so popular if the system worked as intended.

We love the livability of our Jayco Swift 20T but since we purchased it in September 2021 new it has been in the shop twice and is headed there again. The UConnect unit, which provides the backup camera and blind site monitoring plus radio, etc., has gone out three times. Jayco wants us to take it back to Dodge to fix. Dodge says it is a Jayco problem and our dealer has been unable to fix it so it stays fixed. We also had to replace the entire heating/hot water Truma system in April. I think Jayco has failed on this unit. We are so disappointed because we have had to cancel two planned trips due to these issues. It is not safe to drive at this point.

We had our Jayco Melbourne for 5 years and it has been a great Motorhome. It has many features that are only found on much larger and more expensive moterhomes. The overall quality has been outstanding with only a few small repairs needed. We love taking road trips where everyone can ride together and enjoy the journey. We have been from California to Key West to New York and had a great time. For the size and the price our Melbourne has been a great value.
