Hi Folks from Georgia

Hi folks from Georgia. I am new to the forum here. My wife and I have owned several campers in our 21 years of marriage. Our last rv was just totaled out by our insurance company due to a leak in the roof just above our bedroom causing water damage to our flooring and possibly our electrical wiring in the unit. Our camper is kept under an awning in our back yard. The camper was all under roof except for about 3 feet of the front of the camper and that is where the leak occurred. Coachmen. That is all I have to say about that. We are looking for a new rv and we are looking at 2 units in particular right now that seem to fit our needs. 1) is the Jayco White Hawk 25bhs and 2) the keystone Passport 2400bh. Any thoughts of the difference of these two? The 2 year warranty Jayco offers on their rv's is a real consideration. I am familiar with the quality Jayco builds into their RV's. My parents owned Jayco's through the years. Our first pop up was a Jayco. Any info or replies regarding this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in Advance.

Sorry I can't comment on your question about trailer quality.
Just wanted to say, Hi, and good luck with your search.

Welcome To The Forum !!!

We are just outside of Brunswick, no comment on either, but, Jayco does have a good reputation. We considered a Jayco, but ended up with our new 2015 Grey Wolf 26RL . Rear living was a must for me, as it's just me and the wife and so far ( after 5-6 trips) we love it. Only major problem was the air unit had to be replaced, but, all under warrentee.

What part of Ga. ?

Welcome. Good to hear they covered the loss. That's also a good note to everyone to always maintain the seals on the RV.

Personally, I wouldn't get anything Keystone. Aggravating warranty, and lowest workmanship out of most all mfgs.

There is a Winnebago Towables dealer here in Acworth.
You should check out their line on trailers.

Thanks RoadyRose

We really like it, like said, we looked at a Jayco,but the deal we got on the Grey Wolf, plus a little more roomy inside,we decided on the Grey Wolf. Just me and the wife and we are both near retirement,it's going to be our TT for a long time.That's the only reason we decided to buy a new TT. Theonly major proplem was the ac unit, which Camping World just put a whole new unit on it, it never was right, but since we took delivery last nov. we never had to really try it untill recently. We were sure to get the 15,000 btu unit.

How is the search coming ??????

Roadyrose, you are living under a blessed star. Most RV policies (and homeowners, for that matter) would consider that a maintenance issue and would not have paid a claim. You either have a very unusual policy or got lucky and were assigned a claim adjuster that does not understand the policy.

That said, both companies who's products you're looking at have been around for a long time. I'd suggest you buy the one you think would function best for you.

Happy trails!

Welcome to the forum.. I'm a temporary Georgrian due to a blown engine that's going to keep me here for a couple of years at least.
