The first floorplan we show is the 40BHS, 40'11" long. With 2 bedroom areas and 3 slides this is ideal for a family or guests. There is a rear bedroom option of either bunks and dinette or a second queen bed:

Next we show the 40FER.  This has only 2 slides but the main slide is longer giving a really spacious living area:

Finally we show the 40FLR.  This has an even longer main slide providing space for a second glider recliner but without the large pantry featured in the 40FER:

KelseyI have a 2013 jayco bungalow, there is a bad smell in the bathroom, we have some kind of stains on our slides, that looks like someone came up and poured acid on the slides (2 out of 3) The slides don't fit properly. Just wondering if anyone else is having these problems, and if so what did you find that would solve them...
TomDoes anyone else have a mould problem with their Jayco trailer?
TomI bought a Jayco Bungalow 2 years ago. Maybe I got a lemon.. but its crap. None of the slides fit right and the service guy couldn't fix them. Shower doors leaked like a sieve they siliconed them then the bottom broke out of the garden tub. Windows doors ceiling walls all sweat real bad even with a dehumidifier black mould growing in trailer. Jayco's approved repair was to drill two or three holes in through the window frames on all windows, looks like crap. Roof/ceiling dropped around A/C unit. Apparently two roof trusses were broke, the unit has been parked since we got it how did that happen? After being "fixed" by the dealer looks worse than before, by the water stains on the stove and counter I'd say it now leaks. I would not recommend a Jayco product and don't know how to go about getting satisfaction from dealer or Jayco. I've got a 22 month old $50'000 trailer that will have no resale value, due to poor quality workmanship by Jayco and on part by the servicing dealer. We run a campground and have never talked to anyone who has had the issues we've had and gotten no satisfaction.
........This trailer looks ideal for my family. I'm wondering though if the dining table comes in a formation that can be turned into a bed. Also I would like to see a picture of the bathroom area and the back bedroom area. Thanks
duceoh how i would love to have one of these, very beautiful.
westcoastcopWe have the 2008 Jayco Eagle 351RLSA. This is our 5th new Jayco...and again we are pleased with the buying experience at the Dealer...and are yet again continue to be dazzled by the quality, workmanship and incredible attention to detail! And so many things not listed in the brochure are standard. Jayco's are built by a company that is still owned by the original family, 41 years ago. They aren't like some of the RV companies that make 30 different brands...Jayco just makes Jayco! They have a 2 year warranty that they actually have no restrictions on. Some manufacturers void your warranty if you full time or use it as a "residence"...not Jayco! And the double stacked structural steel frame instead of cheap flimsy aluminum frame. Real oak wood cabinets and drawers instead of particle wood used in other brands. Tinted Safety glass standard. About 20 items are standard on Jayco that are extra cost options on other brands. And Jayco uses name brand stuff on their RV's...not cheap crappy no-name appliances. Goodyear tires, Atwood heaters and water heaters, Sharp DVD TV's, Samsung microwaves, etc. And you'll find if you do happen to have problems (our last 4 Jaycos never had any issues!) the Jayco folks say that they treat their customers like family...and they DO! Jayco gets ***** 5 Stars for sure!
MannaCandaceIt's nice to see some options for full-time living in an RV .... makes me want to develop that 40 acre investment property now. We can get an RV up there - no way would a mobile home fit.
BarbiedollWe love Jayco. We have had 3 jayco trailers; a 96n26 ft, a a designer 35 ft at a permanent summer campsite, and finally, an older 95 pop up we bought to run around in Wy and Mt. it even had a gas heater, and when we got caught in a surprize snow in Utah in Oct, we actually used the heater. We survived amidst the 40 ft Motorhomes. This looks good. Go jayco.
Jennie DubnerWe've had 3 Jayco's. We had a 99 Designer, a 2003 Kiwi and now we have a 2008 Jay Flight. All quality. I recommend Jayco and wouldn't buy anything else.
Norris GI've had 2 Jaycos and very good experience. This looks really good.
