Buyer beware! Condensation within the walls without any visible signs . My Octane has never shown any condensation issues, not in the cabinets or living areas. I’ve always kept the unit well vented when in storage and under a RV carport. Your RV may be rotting away and you don’t even know it! My Octane is an excellent example of poor craftsmanship and no pride in one’s work! It took just seven year for the front eight feet to rot away from the inside out. I would have not known except that my Octane split open driving down the highway. The entire passenger side front corner opened up nearly the entire length while we were heading to a rally. At highway speeds it took just seconds to start peeling back and away. After opening up the walls I discovered massive gaps with no insulation and the AC duct-work taps so poorly cut that half the air was being pumped into the roof and walls! The three roof vents were open behind the trim pieces. So every time we ran the AC we were pumping moisture into the walls and roof. This was so bad that the aluminum floor framing has rotted away, yes aluminum 1 1/2 square tubing totally dissolved in seven years! There was no vapor barrier between the outer aluminum siding and the inside walls. This creates continuous condensation every time there is a temperature variation. Forget about the warranty or your RV insurance, you are on your own for the repairs on this type of damage. Dealer estimate for the repairs? Just shy of $16,000 for repairs! Like I would let any dealer repair it back to factory specs!! I’ve repaired the unit myself for less than 3K. I used closed cell insulation, treated lumber, vapor barriers, Kreg joints, exterior rated glues and highly elastic polymer caulk and sealants. Built the way you would expect to find in one of these expensive toys. So look before you buy and definitely check if you own. Not all RV Condensation can be seen!

Rear tail light/ turn signal assemblies fell off after three weeks because of rusted screws. 3 WEEKS! First test of AC, optional 15k but. Out side temp 79 at630 pm. Inside temp 95. Opened windows, used fan to drop temp to 90. Closed unit. Shades drawn. Awning deployed to help shade side. AC on, set 65. Air felt cool, not cold. Returned 2 hours later ready to walk in and shiver. The only shiver I felt was due to anger. Inside temp 82, sun nearly set. I'm glad I got the 15k but and not the standard 13.5k but. Door Frame to bathroom is falling off. Easy fix, but, why should I be fixing anything in a brand new unit that has not even been used yet. I thought I was stepping up a little from Forest River junk. Not even a little. Well, it came with Goodyear tires. I have not even begun to raise he'll, but, I promise it is coming. Does anything good one out of Elkhart, Indiana? I have yet to see it. If you cannot afford an Airstream or similarly overpriced camper that reaches the acceptable level.......and I have heard bad things about the insanely priced units also.......just buy a tent. These manufacturers need to be taught a lesson. If I can get this brand new Junko road worthy, first stop will be Elkhart. I want some answers from the greedy owners before I dump this shitpile of tin on their lawn. Screw you Jayco. I'm sorry. You don't understand that word. I forgot the missing nuts on the tongue jack.

My husband and I purchased this RV in April. We have used it once so far. We are happy with it mostly. However, on our first use the refrigerator was not keeping temperature. All dealers that could service it were out for 3-4 months. We took it on our own to a private company to service because of this. They were able to get us in within 2 weeks. We found out the manufacturer had covered the refrigerator vent with insulation. This could have become a fire hazard. We don’t know if we’ll be reimbursed for the repair which was only $110. It seems to me the manufacturer should have had better quality control for this. I will update on whether there’s any other issues. Just know if you have a new Jayco RV with a Norcold N8X refrigerator that isn’t working properly that the vent may be covered over with insulation and don’t run it until corrected.

I purchased a Jayco Octane SL 293 in May of 2020 for a military PCS. We lived in it from the beginning of July thru the end of August and have taken several weekend trips since then. Overall I am extremely happy with this rig. We use the garage section to carry 2 Harley's with us, mostly when we PCS. We have also used the rear garage as an office at times. I have had zero major issues with it. IMO, Jayco has superior quality throughout the rig when you compare it to other models, specifically bumper pull toy haulers. We really like the fact that the garage is separate from the rest of the space. I don't understand why they discontinued this floor plan, but I suppose it serves a niche customer that isn't large enough to justify continuation.

Purchased new Jayco T33L Toy Hauler, We like the floor plan with raised bedroom and bathroom to provide lots of storage underneath. The trailer sits up high in the air, I have a 3500 GMC, diesel truck and pulling it anything over 60 was white knuckles and down right scary. Trailer was equipped with Blue Ox 15K hitch and this didn't make any difference. Others issues within one time of camping, flooring coming up, stripped screws inside and out, stabilizer jacks too short, 24 inch won't even touch the ground without blocks. seats covers were loose and didn't stay in place and much more. Poor quality overall. traded the unit off after using 1 time.

We have had two Class A coaches, two fifth wheel trailers (one toy hauler version and one standard), and four travel trailer (three toy haulers and one standard). By far, hands down this is our favorite trailer at most every level. The high quality standard, easy tow ability, and well thought out design of this bunk house/toy hauler/beautiful home on wheels that is completely self contained is as close to perfect as we have found. We really liked her when we first found her and brought her home. Now after a year of several adventures, our Jayco Octane T30F has proven herself to be the most reliable and well made coach we have ever owned. We can't see ourselves looking for a replacement, or upgrade ever.
