We are looking into upgrading from our Jayco 23B hybrid. The jayco models we are looking at are the Jay Flight SLX 287bhsw(6,090pounds) or a Jay Flight 27BHS(6,065 pounds) We have a 2016 Ford F-150 V8 with the tow package(not sure on the exact numbers of the truck, husband is not here right now
I know from reading some other posts that the SLX 287 might not tow as well with our truck, but I like the floor plan so much better with the U shape dinette and the placement of the bunks. Now the 27BHS has a lot more bells and whistles, but doesn't have the U shape table and the bunks are not as open feeling. I do like the hide a bed on the 27BHS versus the jack knife in the slx.
Here is a litttle info on us too, 3 kids ages 6,11 and 13 plus us two and a small 25 pound dog. We live in Southwest MI and usually camp less than an hours drive with usually one or two trips north about 3 hours. Its also pretty flat around here.
I would love any opinions and advice.
