FLOORPLANS

The Jayco website gives you the ability to build and price your RV depending upon the floorplan and extras. Starting price is from $14,143 for the shortest model (19BH floorplan, 22'5" overall length) but with the "Customer Value Package" (includes a 13,500 BTU A/C; Multi-Media Premium Sound System CD player w/ MP3 and iPod input jack; Microwave; Carefree patio awning; Water heater bypass) the price for this model goes to $15,858. The top of the range 37'11' (36BHS) is priced at around $26,000 MSRP including the customer value package.

We show 3 of the 9 2009 floorplans below. We show the 19BH (22'5" long), which is the shortest model; the 28BHS, a mid-range model (30'5" long) and the longest model, the 36BHS (37'11" long).  (To maximize the picture in the space available, these are not shown to the same scale of course.)

MSPRs run between around $14,000 to around $26,000 plus. Jayco say this is the No. 1 selling travel trailer in North America for the fourth year in a row. With a large selection of floorplans and a variety of options and prices and the Jayco reputation, RoTi can see why this is the number 1 travel trailer.

BeverlyWe brought a new 2015 jay flight elite 26ft trailer. Drove it home and then 3 weeks later took it on it maiden voyage 50 miles away dry camping and 10 days later we are home. Now to get it into the dealer to have everything fixed. kitchen faucet leaks, the frame that holds up table that makes into a bed broke the first day out. shelf in the cabinet under the tv broke, shower barely has any water come out of it hot and cold water will not blend. both cabinet on the side of the bed bottom are bowing out. the jack will work only when plugged into the truck (will not work on electricity) We are hoping they will fix everything right when we take it in on NOv 7th.
markupdate- after talking to the wife ,it seems she flipped a swith under the kitchen cupboard,checked the swith it was the switch for the fire place LOL
marki just bought a brsnd new jay flight rlds. got it home and started to load it up with the usual stuff,potd,pans,silverware etc. turned on the fireplace it worked for an hour the shut off it wont com back on.unplugged it plugged it back in still nothing.checked the fuses and one of the indicater lights was lit.pulled the fuse it was ok,replace with new fuse but the light is still on. cant figure it out HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ken R.I just purchased a new 32 BHDS and drop it home 200 miles in a rain storm. no leaks at all. I researched multiple other TT's before settling on this model. for the $$ no other camper can match the quality and features... I bought this camper as a upgrade, tons of room, storage and features that as a family of 4+2 dogs will need. for example. the seating around the kitchen table expands for 2 additional persons, the bathroom is huge and even though it might seem minor the toilet is a real porcelen item not the flimsy plastic units. the windows come factory tinted and you also get real pleated shades not the cheap blinds. the cabinets are all solid wood with good high quality hinges. same with the drawers. I especially like all the bypass valves in the plumbing that allow you to completely manage the H20 system and winterize the entire unti very easily. I go the upgraded entertainment system and already love the set-up. the plat panel TV is a RCA not a no name TV, everything including the antena are digital. and the stereo has so many options such as inside/outside audio, surround sound for the TV, DVD built in and a large display with a clock and Alarm if needed. the fridge, stove and AC are all industry standard and proven to work when maintained....with the exception of the fridge which has a secondary slide out lock mechanism that allows you to prop th door open when not in use.Onedownside that I was aware of before purchasing was the grey water tank drain out...it is not located in a good spot....under the living room slideout which makes it difficult to access. I will try to post updates good or bad as we use the camper.
Tom RobartsI 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.

KrisWe bought a 2011 Jayflight G2 32BHDS after countless hours of searching for a quality trailor. I thought that I had found it. WRONG. My outside kitchen leaked, my windows all condensate and the walls condensate to the point that I have a terrible MOLD issue. I am talking GREEN MOLD EVERYWHERE. My carpet, cushions, cupboards, clothing ...everything molded. Jayco is NOT backing their product. I am furious!! I didn't spend $30,000 to camp in MOLD!!! I have had nothing but trouble getting them to listen!! It is under warranty but they will not cover it says my salesman at RCD Sales in Ohio. I don't understand why the company wont cover this issue !!! POOR POOR Customer Service.
Quality RV INCSteve, we are very sorry to hear that you are having problems. We always take care of our customers. If you are still having issues with your Jayco, please contact us and we will do everything we can to help you out.
Alison We have only had our Jayco since the end of February. Brand new 2011 when we bought it. Since we have had it, we had a leak from behind the stove due to cracked tubing from where the fresh water is put in, our outside kitchen area was leaking with every rain and after numerous attempts at caulking, we think it has finally stopped only if we don't have it open when it is raining. And now, after only having it in our possession for 3 months because for 4 weeks now, it has been sitting at the dealership waiting to be worked on, the brakes need adjusted apparently and the dealership says it isn't under warranty and it is a "maintenance" issues and our $. Not to mention that the salesman that was so accommodating before we bought it won't even return our calls, and we found out the company has never put the warranty in our name. Found that out after calling Jayco directly to file a complaint. Not to mention that my husband had to leave work to go to the dealership and PROVE it was the camper and not the truck due to inexperienced staff. I can't believe after all the hype that this is what we are experiencing!
Steve HowardI bought a new Jayco Swift in March of 2011. I have never pulled it anywhere except home from the dealer in Linn Creek Missouri. It leaked rain water all the way home from the front panels. Tony told me they forgot to caulk the seams inbetween the aluminum panels at the factory. Gimmie a break. These people could be the poster child for POOR customer service after the sale. I am still fighting with them.
Dane GoodwinKevin, I am at the factory and willspeak to someone about your issue with the Jay Flight. This is unusual for Jayco. Phone 870-334-2189. Dane - 3/21/2011
george thompsonBought a new 2009 jayflight G2 25 ft travel trailer,love the floor plan,we have used it twice and on both occasions the water tank would siphon out while driving to our camp site(water tank empty) the company says I should install valves on the overflow pipes,it seems to me that type of defect should be the companies obligation,would appreciate feed back on this problem. thanks
Anabel LWe have the 32BHDS and we love the floorplan and the better quality of the G2 after looking at as many floorplans of the Flight and G2 as we could find. The bunks, dinette and kitchen arrangements are perfect for our family. The only thing I would change is the main bedroom area could do with a bit more space. But all in all we love it and think it's worth the extra for the G2.
John364I wonder what the real differences are between the Jay Flight and the G2. Need a dealer that stocks both I guess.
HansI had a Jay Flight until last year and we sold it because we moved west. Can only say good things about Jayco and the Jay Flight. Real value for money. Thinking of the 24RKS, like the rear kitchen arrangement.
HarryI am thinking of getting the 22fb. They look great. I am wondering about pulling. I plan to use a Totota Tacoma V6 they are rated to 5000 lb. the new ones 6500 lb Will this be enough truck? Specs say it is but I'm noy sure? Thanks for input Harry
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!
Jen BurchWe have a 2006 Jay Flight. We looked at many trailers and finally found this with the right price and the right floorplan. The quality is excellent and all minor problems were taken care of. Jayco are great.
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.
Steve & PamJayco - Quality Quality Quality. We have a 1997 Jayco MH. 21' Only thing we'd change -- needs a stationary bed. Wish it was a little bigger. Drives easily. Love the new Jayco's.
WILL & MichellBought 2008 Jayco Jay Flight 22FB in 2007. Great trailer for the price. No slides, but still has plenty of head room and walking area. Bathroom is plenty big to read the paper, and take a shower. Lots of storage space Oak cabinets, seperate QB room in front. Easy to pull, and park in campsite. NO PROBLEMS, 2 year WARRANTY. JAYCO ARE A GREAT BUY.
