All aboard!

So I made the mistake of going to a local RV show a couple of weekends ago...next thing you know I bought a brand spanking new 2011 Jay Flight Swift 26 BH. Can't wait for the snow to leave so we can get out and enjoy it. It'll be a bit of an upgrade from the 1974 Trillium we sold a couple of years ago, that's for sure.

Welcome to the forum. We're waiting for the snow to go away so we can pick up Jay Feather 242.

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum newrvguy68! Is the "Swift" new? In a nutshell, what makes the Swift different from the regular Jay Flight or the G2 models? When do you get to pick it up?

I saw one the other day at a show. Looked to me like the Swift 264BH is basically a Jayflight 26BH with a few less bells and whistles.


From what I could tell they added roller slide drawers, outside speakers, and larger water tanks on the Jayflight this year. The Swift got the sidle drawers, but has no outside speakers, smaller propane tanks (without cover). The swift also has about 800 lb less cargo capacity.

The swift looks like a good value!

Thanks everyone for the welcome. As for your question about the Swift and as someone touched on, the model is made for value but packing as much into the trailer as possible for the money.

The dealer offered to store the trailer for us until the snow is gone and we're able to take it to get it ready for the season. We'll probably want to get it out for May.

We did the same thing "we are just going to look" and tada we are the proud owners of a 2011 trailer. We have storage till some time in may, hopefully the snow is gone and the flood water have receded by then.

There is a lot of snow in the North this year and high water will probably be with us for a while. I am going to stay right here in Az untill things are high and dry.
