Hello from the California High Desert

After some research and looking around we picked up a 2006 Jayflight 29BHS on Friday. The previous two owners took very good care of it and it still smells new inside.

We do mostly dry camping so already planning on some update for that including LED bulbs on order and a solar kit soon. Previous owner already upgraded to dual batteries and included a generator, so that will help as well.

It is a major upgrade from our previous 1977 19' Layton which has fallen apart. We needed much more room with 2 little girls and 2 large dogs. We'll be towing it with my '99 F350 V10, planning on doing some preventative maintenance on the truck (ATF flush, transmission temp gauge, etc...) and we should be good to go. Looking forward to our first trip hopefully next weekend.

Yep, sure did. They sold it on one of the local Facebook for sale groups. We were about to drive to Bakersfield or the Inland Empire to look at a few, but this one popped up at exactly the right time. I guess the PO is planning on moving up to a class A.
