Jayco Greyhawk or Redhawk?

We are looking at the Jayco line of Class C. What is the difference between the Greyhawk and the Redhawk motor home? (besides price) Seems like the Greyhawk line is considerably more $$$

Cosmetically and build-wise, not much difference. Though there is one that really stands out, Greyhawks come with a fiberglass roof, while the Redhawks have a rubber roof. I believe the 2019 Red's may now come with a fiberglass roof however.

Redhawks are cheaper to purchase because of some small subtle changes and omissions during the build that the Grey's have. Laminated counters v. solid surface, different exterior running boards, different exterior storage compartment latches, etc.

E450 chassis is the same, cabinets are the same, box is the same, build quality is the same, most of what you see is the same.

Good luck with your search

The Redhawks are considered entry level. The two most significant things is you cannot get a second AC in any Redhawk, so if your going over 26 foot in length that becomes a problem, and you get a rubber roof instead of fiberglass like on the Greyhawk. On the Redhawk you get J Ride on the Grey you get J Ride+. Other differences, Greyhawk has bigger entry step and wooden pocket doors instead of accordian flapper doors. Greyhawk has camera's in the rearview mirrors and backup camera. The Greyhawks toilet is better, it has better window shades(solid shades plus day shades), and also has more TV's. Greyhawk has leveling jacks and Red doesnt. If you want to be comfortable on those really hot days the Greyhawk will do it for you. The 2 AC units are ducted also.

No, it's probably TPO, and if well maintained(cleaned/protected) will last a very long time. Fiberglass is much easier to clean though.

Red good for me

I have Redhawks 26ds. I chose the red because I did not need the fluff the grey has and I didn't want to pay for it. Instead I got slide awnings, Jack's, extra house battery and satellite dish and still less than grey 26y. Have 16000 miles on it in 2 years and only issue was replaced house water pump. Carry spare now. Easy fix.

Purchased a Red Hawk, 29 XK, in 2016. Just turned 27 K miles. Never had a lick of problems. Not one! Lacks some bells and whistles from Grey Hawk. But, was 58K out the door. The 6.8 V 10 has been very reliable.. Installed Safety Steer Plus, goes down the road smooth, 9 mpg no matter loaded or empty..
