    First van no worries .

    published

    We found the van to be well built even though mass produced, few little problems but our dealer at Orange NSW was great. Considering it's not the off road model and we have taken it to Birdsville twice we have gotten away reasonably unscathed. Only problem has been the fridge died, seems to have degassed itself

    Issue with cupboard handles and roof alignment

    published

    This is my first van very happy with it tows great has the room we need except the handles on the cupboards they are plastic and fall apart why did they change from the push ones to the plastic pull ones. Roof doesn't line up properly when lowered cant latch on drivers side without physically pushing it over

    Roof

    published

    Roof lifting very heavy all jayco journeys should be recalled and fix the problem. Airconditioning on roof to heavy makes roof come down out of alignment and cant latch down roof.

    Mostly happy, but dissappointed due to roof problems

    published

    Overall 70% satisfied but quality of workmanship in some areas disappoints. Roof is way too heavy for old style lifter system in use. Needs are radical re-think and/or re-engineering and strengthening of lifter bars. Roof comes down out of alignment making it hard to latch roof on drivers side of van. Keeping awning loose etc does not improve situation. Van tows well, like ensuite, single beds very comfortable, lighting very good, fridge and A/C both work well. Cabinet quality just OK, clearly not a lot of pride in workmanship. Does lack internal storage space. No pull out pantry although this was a great feature on our Freedom van. Would I buy another Jayco? Probably but steer clear of pop-tops.

    Few teething problems with lights now fine. Very good to tow doesn't sway. Inside very well set out toilet & shower excellent. Aur conditioner bit heavy on roof to lift compared to discovery model but works very effectively. Comfortable inside .

    Great van and terrific service from Jayco 17.55.9

    published

    What a great van! Our fifth new Jayco, the layout is great, very peaceful colour scheme, toes beautifully, looks smart, and great value for money, picked up new in June 2016, headed of on big trip, went into Townsville Jayco to have the roof adjusted and while here we mentioned that the rear wall had a bulge in it when hot. The next morning we had an email from h/o wanting photos, every few days another email ask how the van was. On our return home we took our van into our dealership, who sent it to Melbourne to fix/replace rear wall. Jayco h/o were fantastic and replaced the complete caravan. Where else but Jayco would you get this great service.

    Excellent value for money

    published

    Excellent - Jim 23 Nov 2016
    Puchased my 17-55-8 touring van in January 2016 , have done 3k trip into Queensland , Van tows excellent with the dual axles and performs very well.
    I have just had the first service & a couple of warranty jobs done at Jayco Nowra were i would recommend the sales team & the service team,
    all was done with no hesitation . This is an excellent dealership, very perfessional. Our hand over took 3 hours never missed one thing.
    Other than a couple of minor things we have found the van very comfortable & easy to use . The quality of the van & appliances are very good for a van that is reasonably priced.

    Poor finish

    published

    Just brought van 6yrs old but never been used, staples protruding through plastic, tape and card board over exhaust vent for fridge when on gas, cupboard doors screws falling out, poor wiring, plumbing needs to be modified and it hasn't travelled 100km yet. I read all the bad reviews but thought they couldn't be that bad with the amount of vans on the road.

    Pop-Top Journey 17Ft Touring

    What can a Jayco journey outback do that a tourer can’t? We will get the gas bayonet, the bike rack... neither can go off road, and it’s 300kg lighter, so what’s the limitation?

    Ground clearance, solar, wading depth, tougher suspension, more travel, all round better van, much nicer looking etc etc.

    We had that happen with a swan outback. At first they blamed us? Unequal loading? But the whole van was a bit skewed...
