Extremely Dissappointing.

published

No grease in Wheel Bearings(8). Non return Valve in scheme water incorrectly installed. Electrical terminals not crimped(squashed with pliers) Interior cabinetry very poorly installed; many cabinet components failed including the overhead cabinet which became detached. Yes these are being addressed under warranty, but why so poor workmanship? Lift your game Jayco. Not Happy

Lack of bench space.

published

One thing that soon becomes evident with the Jayco Journey Outback pop top van is the lack of bench space. Very little room to prepare meals or wash up etc. Stove and fridge are excellent as are single beds. Lighting is exceptional and storage space is adequate but we find the toilet capacity hopeless along with water tanks - the water capacity can't support the shower if free camping unless a constant water supply is available.

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

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.

I've read a lot of negative comments about this van I don't know if I'm one of the lucky ones or there are a lot of knockers out there but I'm more than pleased with it. The $ value against any thing similar is huge. We have only had one weekend away in the van so far but love every thing about it the lighting is fantastic. The new van is light years a head of our last van discovery out back same size tones more room and the end ensuite is Awsome I really rate this van and personally I think it's one of the best looking van around if you are thinking of a Jayco I would recommend it.

Very disappointed

published

I purchased a Journey outback in September 2015. In the first week one of the struts broke then the tent came away from the van. Both repaired. Since then the shower stall has come off the back wall, the front of a drawer has fallen off, a cupboard door has come off its hinges. Both bedroom cupboards leaked and damaged the adjoining wall. A handle on one of the support legs broke, the contact used on part of the walls hasn't been installed properly and it is bubbled, the boot is warped as well as the boot lid. I asked for a replacement caravan and was told I need at least 30 things wrong with the caravan. Purchased from Brisbane Camperland and paid for it in full.

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.

Wished we bought elsewhere, not Jayco

published

Journey 19' first time use roof leaked at the skylight & antenna. Also supplied with a wrong model boot that leaked. Not happy! Mattress soaked & stained. Second use, entrance door won't close unless you slam it. Now wheel noise on 4 wheels. Jayco don't want to know about your problems they just want to sell them & annoy you. With lame excuses! Yes we are not happy get rid of this one and look elsewhere, if we can gain or get our confidence in caravanning. Cheers! The Bear
