Sorry...I know you've had a leak in your new 1 year old Jayco...but what other issues are you having?

I know you also posted about tank sensors, not reading properly. I think we've all "been there, done that" with our holding tanks! This was posted by RV.Net member REDESIGN-about tank sensors and how to solve the issues!

You're likely, and understandably...frustrated. I know you're a career Navy guy, and probably expect nearly everything to do what it's supposed to do...but in real life (especially RV's!) that ain't always the case.

Jayco has always strived to take care of their RV Owners, that's why they've been around for 42 years. I was going to suggest the Jayco Eagle TT, but I saw that you have a Eagle Super-lite, so you may not be amenable to a Jayco at this point! Is your Dealer ignoring you, has Jayco not "done the right thing" for you?

But if high end and close to perfection is what you want to try, true Higher End Travel Trailers are rare, very rare! New Horizons is on top of the list...but they only make 5th wheels!

Same with Mobile Suites...and Excel...no TT's, 5th wheels only! And we are talking some serious $$$ here!

Heartland and most other RV companies make their own versions of "luxury Travel Trailers", but again you are going to take the "spin the roulette wheel of chance" when buying them, too!

The real problem is that for all their efforts, all RV Manufacturers have to hire humans to build them. And we're Fallible, easily distracted, subject to flights of fancy, prone to hangovers, and they seldom achieve perfection.


And it really does come in handy, when buying any RV, to be somewhat of a Handyman/Craftsman/Joe the Plumber/Tim the Toolman kind of guy!

Good luck!

I checked Bigfoot they are too small, Corsair appears to be available only in Canada (general coach), Arctic Fox is nice, however I live in the southeast and when I did the dealer search it said that the closest dealer was Denver

I don't think IMHO there are really such think there is a HIGH END TT like in MH just better built like the Airstream, or maybe the HR Presidential series or those with better things like insulation in the Artic Fox, etc. There are definitely differences in the MH market, but then you are talking about the difference is a 200K MH and a one or two MIL home and that price differential is just not there in the TT pricing. Now that excludes the 5ers where things line the Mobile Suites could be classified as a High End Unit, but those are few and far between and not was your question.

Contact the RV Consumer Group, www.rv.org, for their appraisals of the TT's out there. It may pay to buy a disk and do your own research.

New Horizons do indeed build high end travel trailers.

In fact they have a used one for sale at present
2005 New Horizons 30ft TT

Another used one for sale at owner website
http://www.nhog.us/forsale/Verrier/index.html

While they do not advertise their TT floorplans i would suggest a phone call to them would set the record straight quickly whether or not they would custom build a TT in 2010.
Something tells me that a certified cheque and a signed contract would get a quick affirmative.

"High End" is a term that has no universal definition and I suspect is an invention of sales people to charge more for certain options and features when it comes to RV's. Considering most RV's use similar/same frames, appliances, etc most of the differences are a matter of options and interior fluff.

I don't own one, but the Open Range travel trailers look nice.
