KSW, I wish you luck in getting satisfaction with your unit. This is supposed to be fun... not the hassle you're having.
Thank you! Everyone has denied the fix. Shop says axles too weak for size of trailer (282bh). Been stuck home. Should have never given up the Jayco.

Jayco vs Shadow Cruiser

Having sold both Jayco and Shadow Cruiser, I can say this; prior to 2015 I would have picked the Jayco hands down. However, Jayco is now owned by another manufacturer, and the quality of their product is nowhere near what it used to be. As far as the 2 year warranty Jayco has, if you purchase a Shadow Cruiser from a Blue Dog RV location, you can get a Lifetime warranty at no cost to you!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but with the Lifetime Warranty aren't buyers required to have annual inspections of which aren't free?

My Jayco came with "Warranty Forever".... "And it's FREE!!"... but even in the factory, 2-year warranty period, they want $350- and probably keep my camper for weeks for annual inspections. So.......... uuuuuumm............ no. It ain't free, and I ain't participating.

Also, I responded to this thread a couple of times in the past, and from my sig you can see which way we went. We're not sorry. Our White Hawk has been solid!

Smile Jayco vs Cruiser RV

We bought a brand new 2015 282bh and I loved the floor layout. The axles on the other hand failed with about 1000 miles. Manufacturer finally replaced after we had an independent trailer maker give an estimate and reason why the axles failed. Size and weight too much for 3500 lbs axles. Lippert tried the blame us, but the evidence proved otherwise. New axles bent again but tire blew out and there was considerable damage done to the whole trailer. Frame bent. Box bent. Manufacturer still denies blame. The trailer was not overloaded. We had emptied all tanks of water. Slides would not work properly after the first axle problem. RV dealer finally agreed to fix the frame. Mechanic said he had just fixed the same problem on the same trailer (he thought we were those people) the day before. Seen problem many times. Axles too small. So unless the Manufacturer has updated and increased the capacity of the axles. My personal opinion is don't purchase their trailer. We purchased the extended warranty and they would not cover either. Waste of $1500.00. Our trailer was in the dealership 10 months of the 24 we owned and most of that time was during vacation time. We now own a 2017 27ft jayco. Not as good as the 2009 model we had before the cruiser. But at least we hope the frame and axles will not crown.
