Outback 210 RS VS. Jayco 213 RS

New to iRV2 and new to travel trailers. My wife and I just sold our Fleetwood Evolution E1 Popup and want to upgrade to a hardshell expandable. We have narrowed our selection to either an Outback 210RS or the Jayco 213RS. Almost identical floor plans but different amenities, IE, manual rear slide (Outback) vs. Automatic (Jayco).

My question is for anyone who has experienced or has knowledge of either Outback or Jayco products, esp. those mentioned models. Which company has a better long term reputation, better quality, and least problems. I know Jayco has the two year warranty but is the Outback a better quality item? I have reviewed both Outback and Jayco forums and noticed less "problems" with jayco, but is that result of the Jayco moderator or non reported problems?

I am currently leaning towards the Outback, but have recently read they are having delamination problems with the 09/10 products? Any information, factual or personal, is appreciated.

Welcome Gabriel to irv2.
Have a couple of links that may help #1 number # 2
Number 2 may answer your question seems like price would be a factor and which ever backs up there warranty service.
Looked for recalls older units not much on either one.
Have a fun time deciding and good luck in your quest.
