2018 Jayco Precept 35S

Looking at used one with about 6k miles for a little under $100k. This will be used for full time RVing. Any thoughts or experiences or suggestions?

We have a 2017 35S and really love it. We are not full timers but will be snowbirds this coming winter for 6 months at a time. Having used it for 2 years I would say it would be a good full time RV, especially in that price range. Are you buying from a dealer or private owner? Either way check it out thoroughly, either on your own or by an independent inspector. We have had a few issues with ours, the biggest being a hydraulic leak at the pump. Been in twice for repairs. Hopefully resolved now. I added a Safe-T-steer plus and that was all I did as far as handling, and am happy with the J ride plus. This is a great site for info not only for the motorhome itself but for the F53 chassis. Also, if you haven't already, join the Jayco owners forum. There is a Precept owners page with lots of good info. https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/. Good luck and keep us informed on your decision!

We're in a 2016 35S and have been full-timing for the last 2 and a 1/2 years. We've logged 25,000 miles and can say, happily, that this model has been perfect for us.

We brought new as we wanted the 2 year warranty while travelling. We have been problem free, other than a couple small fixes which were quickly attended to by Jayco. Buying used you will not get a warranty transfer, at least that is my understanding.

While our experience has been incredibly positive, this is not the case for all Precept owners. Read the forums and make sure you do a thorough inspection before buying. Test everything.

If you have any questions send me a PM.

Our 17 35S just had its second birthday with close to 16,000 great miles. No greater bang for the buck. Made several mods to really make it ours!

We love ours. A couple of minor issues that were taken care of under warranty but nothing major.

Have no desire to change it for something else. A few mods like taking out the sofa and installing theater seating group from RecPro, satellite dish, washer/dryer, etc. Haven't done anything about handling, but having been a road driver for a major trucking company for 40 yrs, I don't have any issues with it in that regard.

We also have 6300 mi. on ours, it had 1200 when we bought it, so the mileage is similar. We prefer the camping side of the experience, not the traveling side.
