We just picked up our Jay Flight Swift 154 this Friday. First trailer, so we don't have anything to judge it against, but so far it's great. We're towing it behind a Chrysler Town & Country, and, though I don't think I'll ever forget it's back there, it tows better than I thought (first trip: 82 miles from the dealer back home--terrain quite hilly). First campout was in the driveway (the kids insisted). The only hiccup was when the furnace kicked on and set off the smoke alarm in the middle of the night (excess oil from the manufacturing process, the manual tells me). The boys didn't even hear it.

We'll be dragging this thing down to Colorado/New Mexico/Arizona this summer, and I don't think we could be more excited.

Congrats and welcome to the Forum! You will have some good times in there!

Yep - you do get some smoke and a little smell from the furnace to begin with but it does not last too long. You are smart - a good shakedown in the drvieway is the way to go so you figure all these things out before you hit the road.

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum. Are you in the neighborhood of Newberry?

Hey Clutch! We're in Marquette, about 100 miles west of Newberry.

I was just curious. My family came from Newberry. Infact we made a trip through the UP just to see Newberry and get a pic of the water tower with our name on it. Wouldn't you know it, they were painting the tank.

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum BTCohosh! Awww.... "Camp Driveway"! We still do that when our grandkids spend a night. Same thing happened with us, the furnace really smells initially and the smoke alarm sure is ear piercing! LOL, if it was my first night camping in the tt, I don't think I would hear that alarm either
