26BH Review

Been camping in the yard and now at a full hookup site, got Wifey, 13, 9, 7 yr old kids and the dog! Gotta say more room is always good but we are happy so far! I'm 6'2" close to 3 bills and the shower was fine!! Very surprised by that.

Happy with the radio and outside speakers...the led lights out there are bright...

Haven't had any problems other than forgetting coffee, that's been fixed!!

Would say I'm not impressed with the TV mount spot in the bedroom area, seems very flimsy. Also gotta get some more ways to hang towels and wet swim suits!

I'm sure as we use it more we'll figure more out.. I'll update as things come up...

Let me know if ya have any questions.

Great to hear you are happy with and enjoying your new 26BH! We are currently on our 6th outing with our new 26BH with no issues at all. We have 8 more already planned for this summer. Very happy with it as well. Keep us updated on any mods you do!!!

I have had a 26bh since 2011 with 2 grandchildren. and it is a great camper. I haven't had 1 issue with it whatsoever. Now that the oldest is 14 and likes to bring along friends I would like a little more room, but I also hear people in hell are looking for ice water!!!!
Its not too big and not too small , I like the fact I can get it in and around state park sites and smaller places whereas the longer trailers seems to be frowned upon or too hard to maneuver around. The happiest my kids get are when we are going somewhere in our 26BH....

We have the older 27bh, the same floor plan. We like it. It can get a little tight on those stormy days where everyone is inside, especially with my 3 teenagers and a big dog. I hope to upgrade to something with a little more room next year.

We love our 26BH too! I also have the same issue with finding a place to dry towels and bathing suits. I usually hang them on the awning arms but they will slide down, bunch up and stay wet a little longer. I may look into one of these https://www.amazon.com/Stromberg-Car.../dp/B00B2AU7QE

We got our 26BH in Sep 2015 - only thing that gets us sometimes is the lack of space between the sink/stove and the table and having to squeeze by. Otherwise, we are good and no worries pulling with a half-ton (alot less weight without the slides).

We are over 60 nights in it, including a 6 week trip last winter (Florida/Texas) and are planning an 8 week trip in it for this fall out to Oregon/California.

There are four of us - me, the wife, and two boys (6 and 8 yo).

Here we are headed out today!


Also does this look normal for axle camber or should I seek adjustment?

Not sure if that's normal or not. Any chance the truck is not in line with the trailer in that picture? Mine does it also (24MBH White Hawk) when turning sharp ( driveway / parking lots ). Interested to see what others opinions are.

The 26BH is quite likely Jayco`s best selling floorplan and certainly popular here on JOF. Under 30 ft, bunk house, no slides to deal with, very affordable family friendly RV and you do not need a monster TV to tow it.
