Thanks again oldmanAZ. That was a good read, and I didn't think about my RAM suspension either. I'm thinking the JF 23MB maybe might be my max option.

have posted in a similar thread in regards to this model vs. 26bh with differacnes

I have recently considered purchasing this model but ended up getting the 26bh and wrote a detailed post about it in this thread . http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=24309 I posted a long response in this thread its worth looking it up and reading, I put a lot of deatails in it that I think will help you.

If you think the price on the 264bhw is right the 26bh is still a contender, although the 26bh cost more I printed a quote for the 26bh from rv direct and got a local dealer to price match rv direct. I ended up negotiating the 26bh with the thermal package uprgrade, bigger ac, and roof ladder for the same price they initially wanted for the 264bhw.
no matter what one you decide on get price quotes from several dealers including rv direct and use those to you advantage!!!! if you have any other questions feel free to ask me I spent many hours researching the two!!!

Thanks jkochmit1, I did see your review 26MB before I joined. It really helped highlight the main details between the JF and JF SLX. I'm actually thinking 29' is too much to handle coming from popup land. We like to camp in state parks and I'd have to pay more storage fees, so I'm looking at something shorter.

I'm leaning towards the JF 23MB, 23MBH or Rockwood mini-lite 2504s now. My local dealer had all three to compare side by side. My wife would prefer the extra area of the slide out, but the JF 23 MBH was over a foot longer, heavier, and had less storage then the Rockwood.

I went from a Baja pop-up to a 29 trailer, actually 33'. There is a BIG difference in pulling the different trailers, but you learn quickly. Assuming your vehicle can handle the larger trailer I wouldn't let the length be a limiting factor as far as towing, storing or clearance maybe. Now I have a FW with another learning curve.

Jayco SLX 264BHW

We just purchased a 2015 264BHW , and so far we love it. Everyone who has toured it has raved about it. I'm towing it with my 2002 Olds Bravada, a midsize SUV for now. I did lots of homework on towing limits for my vehicle, and we're just on the outside of what I'd want to tow with it, with margins built in. But we towed it 4 hours home from dealer, went into city to show it to my sister, and I even backed it into my driveway in the dark, all without mishap. So far, so good.

We looked at the 264bhw but felt that 29' was just too long for our driveway.

If you don't need the bunks the 23RB was a happy median for us.

Congratulations on your new trailer, a successful (mishap-free ) first trip with it, and welcome to the forum.

Getting into upper bunk

I spent a fair amount of time looking at floor plans and decided on the 264BHW. I took delivery last week and found it has even more features that I like, such as an outdoor shower. I did expect a ladder or something to get into the top bunk and it didn't come with one. I would be interested and grateful to hear how others with this model get into the top bunk. Build a ladder? Use a step stool? Thanks.
Mike
