JUNKO (Jayco) Caravans BUYER BEWARE

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO ANYONE TO BUY A JAYCO CARAVAN

The joke out on the road amongst caravan owners are they are called JUNKO’s

I bought this van brand new and For 3 years I have put up with an obvious LEMON I have had nothing but trouble with this Jayco Off Road Caravan called an Outback what a joke. If your thinking of buying one DON’T do your research read the fine print they aren’t meant for dirt roads so I have been told by a Jayco employee.

Well what does OFFROAD and OUTBACK say to you????

To me its dirt roads I would expect to be able to drive on a dirt road without having your van falling apart and dust in every single space imaginable inside. I know that you can have problems with anything but this is ridiculous.

I’m even thinking of getting a sticker made up and putting all over the van “JUNKO”

Once again I am spending money to fix things and before you ask yes I have been in contact with Jayco and the dealer. If I had any satisfaction I wouldn’t be writing this post.
