Currently a '06 Jayco 1207 that we've camped in one time so far and previously a hand-me-down '94 Palomino Stallion that I have camped in several times.
The front storage on the Palomino was handy, but it ultimately contributed to the campers demise from water damage. I carry an additional plastic bin with all the gear I used to keep in the storage locker and store the awning poles under the rear mattress. It seems the Jayco has more space to move around in but that may be my memory playing tricks. The Palomino had a spot for the porta potti that I do miss but I converted the carry-out dinette into a cubby for the Thetford, we dine al fresco and when the weather moves us inside we will still have the u-dinette. I never used the onboard water system or the fridge in the Palomino as the fridge was defunct by the time I got it and had been converted to additional storage. The onboard water was never used by my father in law in his 10+ years of owning the Palomino that I know of and was never maintained properly so I never wanted to tempt fate.
On one of my first trips with the in-laws back on the late 90's, I asked the FIL his opinion on who makes the best pop-up. He didn't hesitate and said "Jayco". This came from a man that had camped in pop-ups for 40+ years for two weeks straight every year, starting with an Apache back when my wife was in diapers and ending up with four month long trips every year in the Palomino after he retired. He finally had to give it up and pass the torch (and the Palomino) to me when he was in his 80's and could no longer pull the bunks out with ease, so I put alot of value in his opinion. I'm sure he had seen it all.
I am happy with the construction of the Jayco, it seems solidly built and is efficiently laid out. Not alot of bells and whistles which means less things to need fixing. The lift system seems to be one of the better ones out there and I hope will give trouble free service for years. Some nice features are the onboard water filter, outdoor shower, and bunk end fan/lights that clip onto the shepard's hooks. I liked the fact that Jayco was still a family run business when this camper was made, not that it rules out any shortcuts or snafus in manufacturing, but just a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing that, for what it's worth.
I've had 2 Jayco pups and a forest river. By far, my favorite is my current Jayco (1007)!
