Friday morning I went as it opened as you need to be early for free parking.
Was dead to around 1pm.. Talking to a few salesman as they outnumbered customers they said its been a real slow show.
I left around 4pm was starting to pick up then.

What is new.. The cupboards I agree with @Tucker top ones look like some cheap kmart wood :(
You walk into the silverline its nice finished gloss.
Then you look at the Journey:) ones and they are not even finished correct you can see where it joins :(
No I will not be looking to update my 22.68 to a new Journey anytime. And yes you need to make the J and Y almost blend it. The couple of salesman I chatted to ( I was outnumbered 10 to 1 at 9:45am) where like yep your not the first or the last who noticed this.. So wonder if they change the logo.

Yes slack with photos this time normally I take pics of price tags and inside although seeing the salesman where like seagulls and I was the one chip I did not stay for long around Jayco.
We might go back Sunday or Monday or maybe not.. was getting a bit bored as nothing really new.

apart from name and colours nothing at Jayco changed apart.. New power points with USB and single plug seem everywhere

So they reckon you will have about 160kg on the ball ??????? when loaded ?????? .........................and 64kg ball empty ??? lol,lol,lol.

Is that normal that the outside kitchen is outside the awning and you stand outside as well ???????? ....never really took much notice before.

Nothing in the pics really grabs me like some of the pics from other shows, might have to do a run to Bundy to have a look see at the Jayco and Coromal yards they are both new one's, not that I'm looking to trade in Big mal ................... if it ever stops raining.

@Drover they do not do max ball anymore its 164 empty which is 60kg less then ours :( our min 221 and ATM2780.

Most awnings finish before the front tunnel so I say normal, a lot of non Jayco bunk vans have the toilet on the awning side and noticed a lot of awnings finish a meter or so from back of the van.

@Crusty181 it really has that kmart or reject shop look. Then you go into New Age or any of the others and there cheap vans finished better.
