Hi Blair, my 2018 does the same, but no leaks as I added more silicone to all rooftop equipment.

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.

Hi Andy, I have done exactly that and works great. Better on the bumper than on the rear wall IMHO.

Hello! We are just about to buy a Jayco Pop top Journey and will be towing with our 2007 Pajero. Has anyone else got the same set up and can give feedback on how it tows? Thanks so much. Also we wanted to move the spare wheel to the rear but Jayco said we can’t due to wanting a cycle carrier. Has anyone else got around this? Thanks

Hello .. we have the same setup and the ride with the Pajero (2011) Diesel is wonderful. .. wouldn't change it for the world. The only changes we have made are. A Steinbaur Diesel chip, a 3 inch exhaust and a larger fuel tank from ARB. The tank capacity was increased by 40 litres ... from the standard 88 to 128 litres and is very convenient when there are no filling stations for around 250-350 klms like the centre of Oz. We have a 2018 Journey that had a wheel carrier in the front under the "A" frame and one at the back. I cut off part of the front section of the carrier to install a toolbox on top of the "A" frame and travel with the one spare tyre at the back. I am sure you can fix the cycle carrier at the tow bar and move the spare tyre to the back. Regards. Nevillle.

Do you know what your maximum tow weight is on your Pajero Neville? Ours is 2.5t apparently and they changed to 3t in later models. Thanks

Can you get a front opening boot on the jayco journey 15.48? The side opening storage area seems inadequate for all the gear we need to carry eg hoses, step ladder, etc .

Hi all a 1994 Jayco poptop what is the framing made of timber or aluminium frame or bit of both.
Looking to buy one but had a small leak. The owner says been totally resealed. So just wondering if the leak may have done any internal damage.
Thanks

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

Hi, I have a 2017 pop top journey.
When l connect the hose to the caravan, water constantly trickles out both sides of the tank filling holes.
Any advice on how to solve this would be great.
Cheers Rick.

I think a pressure reducing valve may work. I have a similar problem on my 2018 Journey DX
