24RBS Floorplan Discontinued

If the Jayco web site is correct, it appears the 24RBS Jay Flight has been dropped from the 2023 model lineup.

My 2018 24RBS still meets my needs, don't see it leaving my 'lineup" for awhile

Grumpy,

I also ran across a few as you stated myself...., but then there was a couple that advertised a 2023 24RBS model but the actual dealer detailed description stated 2022

I wonder if the new 2023 240RBS Jay Flight is taking its place? Little shorter overall and modified floorplan.

Time will tell.

Bob

Sure looks like it since it's marked "new" in both regular and "W" versions for 2022.
Might have been a mid year change.

Following is a recent video of the new 2023 Jay Flight 240RBS:



What's interesting is there are a couple other 2023 240RBS videos out there but they are referred to as a "SLX" 240RBS (?).

Took another look at the Jayco web site this evening and checked in on the 2023 Jay Flight line-up again. Well, a new 247RBS Jay Flight model floorplan is now shown and 'appears' to have the same floorplan as prior 24RBS models (queen bed size differ).

No published specs on the 247RBS yet....., who knows, maybe the 24RBS still lives

I see the shorter queen bed, and the cabinets above the bed have been replaced by a shelf.

Your floorplan has been around for a long time compared to most, Bob. Our friends 2018 they found is perfect for them.

Found some data today on the 2023 247RBS...., and at first glance I see the 2023 247RBS has a 6,750lb GVWR compared to the prior 2022 24RBS of 7,500lb GVWR:

The 2023 247RBS doesn't have any windows in the slide end walls.

Curious what else they did to that model to affect the GVWR? Compared to your 2018, I also noticed the difference on the dinette table legs, and what seems to be a bathroom mirror, instead of a medicine cabinet.

Good question

I also noticed the 2023 247RBS fresh water capacity dropped to 38gal...., my 2018 24RBS was 76gal (had 2 tanks). The factory UVW's are within 150lbs of each other..., and both have 3,500lb axles.

Found a 2023 247RBS on a dealer's web site with pricing...., can't be right

On edit: Dealer is based in Ontario. On the US build sheet it has a $42,772.00 MSRP. For build sheet and photos reference source link below.

Thinking of shedding the bunkhouse for an open floor plan. Do any of you have follow up thoughts on the new (247RBS) model?

I haven't seen one yet....., but it appears to offer most of the same features that the prior 24RBS model.

I would like to know what influenced the 750lb reduction in GVWR
