Great van!

For the quality, features, space, tow/ride quality and layout this van possesses, I don’t think you’ll beat it for the price point. Show details

Great family van

Hands down this was a great purchase for a family of 5. The space the van offers you, particularly in cooler weather was excellent.
We took this caravan on a lap around Australia and gave it a fair run. Did we have issues, of course we did, but there are a lot of things you can do to fix yourself but their overall network is incredibly helpful.
The cost of the van as well is a major plus by comparison to others.
Towing wise this is a heavy van and when loaded up you can really feel the difference.
We chose the kitchen slide out which we used every day, highly recommend if you can compromise on no tunnel storage. Show details

Amazing family van that can handle any weather

We are a family of six travelling around AUS and we absolutely love this van. We have endured all sorts of weather and remained comfortable and dry.
There are a few minor things that aren’t 100% but truly- minor. Nothing that takes away from the experience. Show details

Jayco Provides No Service

Our May 2016 Expanda Outback Caravan is delaminating along the drivers side in several areas covering the front to back of the side. Jayco have advised is could have been caused by many factors although their recommended repair has confirmed it is a manufacturing fault. They have advised the van is 3 years old, when the matter was raised in Dec 2018 and booked in for inspection in January 2019 it was a long way short of 3 years old. Don't buy a Jayco you will be left out of pocket and they are obviously only meant to last 2 1/2 years then an in excess of $42,000 caravan becomes a throw away item.

Workmanship - not quality!!!!

Just slow down 5% Jayco. Listen to the customer - it’s a thing! It’s not the materials or the product. It’s all just care factor. Silly annoying assembly errors that really take from the product. if I wanted third world assembly quality I would have bought it! Everything about the van says Australian Engineering. Except the finish. Too much unnecessary NQR. And annoyingly a long list of silly things just not quite enough to be worth a trip back to the dealer. Just a shame really. 5% slower it could be so fantastic.

Workmanship

I will start by saying we do like the van as a whole and yes it’s value for money!

Good job on the suspension works very well, however when I went wandering around underneath it’s difficult to believe it has been assembled in Australia. Simple things like Not getting wiring caught between things wiring so tight in one area and coiled in another, earth cable is held by 3 stands of wire, then there’s the plumbing looks like it was thrown in need I go on Oh and why not put screws in straight or at least enough to hold a cupboard on the wall and yes I could go on!! Come on guys a little pride in our work would go a long way.

Great Value caravan

Great value caravan. Comfortable and well built. Great for a family and easy to tow due to the reduced traveling size. Great van to get out for a quick trip or an extended getaway.

Good floor plan but beware of Jayco when it comes to after warranty help

Love my expanda but whenever i have had to deal with jayco for advice or spare parts i get a different story. Spoke to Jayco head office about sourcing new locker door and they said they couldn't manufacture one for caravan that was 4 years old. Spoke to a dealer and they said no worries and ordered the part from jayco and I got it few weeks later. Also had an electrical problem which i now know is just a moisture issue which seems is common but Jayco head office wasn't interested in helping to diagnose the issue.
