Bruce, we are long time RV'ers and love our Skyline Nomad Joey 260.

We have owned 5 motorhomes, and 2 other TT's before buying our Skyline about 1.5 years ago. It has suited our needs very well. We use it frequently, and stay in it extended periods of time in the summer when we visit the mountains of New Mexico. Pull it with a Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with no problems.......

Just brought home our 2012 Layton Joey 196. Looked and looked for the right trailer and instantly fell in love with workmanship and quality of materials. Looking forward to camping out as soon as the rains stop. Love to hear from other owners. Clajac

1996 Skyline Aljo 2440 here. I love the trailer and I have been impressed with how well it has held up, despite the previous owner's best efforts to let it rot away.

As much as I'd like a Skyline forum, I don't think we need one. Most TT problems and solutions transcend brands and manufacturers (Skyline has like a dozen brands all selling the same models). If we just stuck to a Skyline only forum, we'd miss many ideas, and certainly many fixes, as they seem to be one of the most reliable and better built of the mid-priced units. We'd just have fewer problems to complain about.

I also asked the factory for drawings for the rear wall to install a ladder, and they sent me the entire drawing package. You cannot beat that. They also responded to my email about a wiring problem I told them about. So that shows that we don't lack factory support.

If / when I ever upgrade to a newer or larger unit, I will definitely look for skyline first. My travel trailer owning friends all have skylines, and we didn't plan it that way.

I have made a lot of changes but not because of problems, but because the investment in the upgrades were worthy of this trailer and a tribute to it's overall quality.

My only peeves are the undersized (to my specs) 12V main battery cables, and all the sawdust and shavings behind the panels you never see until you take something apart.

A few Hmmm... why did they do that questions, (like putting the water heater at the back of the coach 10 ft away from the shower when it fit perfectly in the bathroom cabinet space you couldn't access easily anyway, (It's there now) and why does the back wall have fiberglass insulation instead of the solid foam like the side walls. (I cut a 4' x 4' hole in it to add a big cargo door.)

Why is the furnace on the curb side when it should be on the other side so it's exhaust isn't under the awning next to the door that should open the other way so it does not hit the awning...

Mine is 2001 Skyline Nomad. 13 years old and she's just now starting to need some maintenance. This TT has been awesome!

I just purchased a 1970 Nomad, 19 or 20 foot... Working on getting my replacement title so I can be legal. These forums have been helpful so far. Just tough to find the right niche since the TT is old as dirt but "not quite vintage".

I may have made a mistake in the purchase, because I see a LOT of work in my future, but it was dirt cheap, so I'm just going to roll with it.

So far, I've discovered a rusty fresh water tank, some severed plumbing lines, and a totally rigged up 12v system. However, my kids are over the moon about the camper.
