We are absolutely jazzed to have our new Jay Flight 23MB Elite with the new black trim sitting in the driveway!
Quite a journey over the last few months, including cancelling an order on a X213 after discovering the 23MB online and ordering without seeing it in person
. None was available locally to go through before hand so went through a 23MBH noted the differences in person/online and went for it.
What we love
- I'm 6'5" tall and I absolutely love being able to walk around the whole trailer without ducking or even feeling like I might hit something.
- 1/2 ton pulls it easily and with the equalizer 10K Equal-i-zer® 4-Point Sway Control attached I hardly know it's there.
- 4200 pounds dry/425 tongue with every option available besides outdoor grille and chill-n-store came in weighing 4700/485 with 2 full 30 gallon propane tanks.
- Love the layout - murphy bed, huge dinette, 2 huge 6'4" x 4' bunks rated to 600lbs, 8 cu ft fridge is huge and other elite upgrades worth the extra charge.
- Dual 3500lb axles are well above the capacity we will ever load it to
- 34% of MSRP was just icing on the trailer
- Tongue to bumper 6'10" so should fit into almost every campground
- Electric awning with LED strip is pretty darn cool and lights it up amazingly
We don't love but -
- 6'2"L x 5' murphy bed - we added a 2 inch topper to the bed which levels it with the storage at the head of the bed and really turns the bed into a 6'8"L bed, works great after some trial and error.
- Taller shower would be nice, but it's doable when needed.
We also decided on the aluminum siding over the fiberglass for -
- 400-500 lbs less weight
- No worries on delamination
- Much less cost to fix if sides are damaged
- Fiberglass looks a little better and easier to clean, but can't have it all
Always hard to find something which fits whether it's trailers, cars, trucks, shoes or anything else
so hope this helps a few tall guys make a decision
Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful threads which helped us tremendously
