New Jayco Swift 154BH Owners

Hi everyone! We just took delivery of a new 154bh last week and spent the weekend at our local KOA to try it out. So far, we like it for the most part. Jus wanted to say hi.

Would love to hear more feedback about your new Swift, JimboC. We are considering one ourselves.

Hi John! Swift was great. I did have to take it back to the dealer due to a screen door alignment problem but they fixed it in 30 minutes so no biggie. Plenty of storage room under the bunk and dinette. Very ample cabinet space. We've started getting some clear plastic totes to use in the cabinets in order to keep things from relocating during travel. AC seems to be sized well
although I am not a big fan of the fact it drips down on the window so I will probably be putting some type of gutter in to redirect it. The filter looks like it is going to be fun to impossible to clean.

The black tank seemed sized well but the grey is a bit small. Had to empty it several times during the weekend. Especially after showers even though we took quick ones. Not a huge deal since it is easy enough to empty.

As for towing, it seemed to do very well behind out V6 Ford Ranger although I wouldn't want to go with a much smaller TV.

All in all, it seems to be a good value for the money. After all, it is a travel trailer for around 11K. That's not much more than a popup. I think you'll be pleased if you get it.

Thanks for your comments Jimbo. If I find one around here for low teens I'll probably come to the same conclusion as you. That's a great price for what you get.
