2023 Jayco Precept motorhome best suited to part-time RVers

Josh the RV Nerd reviews the 2023 Jayco Precept 31UL Class A gas motorhome with three slides, a king bed, and an auto generator start system.

At 33 feet, it is halfway between a huge motorhome and a small motorhome. But it’s got all the amenities. It’s probably too small for full-timing, but for part-time or seasonal RVing, this might do the job.

The living room has slides on both sides, making it very spacious. A power bunk over the cab lowers for even more sleeping space than provided by the sofa-sleeper, dinette-sleeper and bedroom bed. The Jayco Precept motorhome has six seat belts, which means six people can legally travel in this.

The kitchen features a modern, white, “farmhouse” decor which is attractive, and there are plenty of drawers and cabinets. The counter space is generous when the two sinks are covered. A residential fridge comes standard, but a smaller gas-electric version is available.

The bedroom in the Jayco Precept is cozy with a lot of drawers and two clothes closets.

The bathroom is adequate. Even NBA stars can fit in the shower, which has seven feet of headroom.

A 5500 Onan generator comes standard in the Jayco Precept. The motorhome rides atop a Ford F-53 chassis.

The 2021 Jayco Precept is the worst. The workmanship is nothing close to adequate. Kitchen sink hose collapsed blocking the drain. The kitchen sink fell is due to the lack of support and glue. Warped counter tops and one came apart. Loose window trim. Loose wall panels. I fixed three separate water leaks under the shower. One was the lack of caulking from the shower enclosure to the basin. The main cabin floor is Warped due to a defective or improperly installed slide rain deflecter. Several cabinet door hinge screws were stripped and required imitate repairs.
It is my opinion Jayco has no leadership on the assembly floor. I will NEVER purchase any other Jayco products.
Warranty… forget it. My dealership is soooo busy they could not fit us in.

Jayco – no thanks.

I’d want the theater seats, Gas elect or 12 volt fridge with small dinette table and chairs. No Schwintek slide. . Be nice to see a review on motorhomes with no slides. Glad to see Josh’s reviews, always enjoy his videos.

Cosmetics – I like the white in the kitchen, it brightens things up, but would prefer theater seating in the living area.

Sounds like maybe Jayco might be listening to all the complaints about the F-53 chassis by including the steering stabilizer and Komi shocks.
