My 2014 Jayflight 26bh

dont have many pics of it but here are a few mostly from the day/weekend we bought it






Gibson looking for some shade on the first trip


never thought my half ton would be too small, need to upgrade to a 2500-3500 so i can add my boat with less issue, plan on doing the gears in the spring cause the 3.55's and 35in tires make her a little bit of a dog

Nice rig! One thing I will pick on is your trailer should be level or slightly nose down when towing, yours appears to be high in the front which could lead to sway.

ya that has been changed, its funny the day we picked it up i said that to the guys setting it up they were like no its fine its just the parking lot, then as we started pulling away they come chasing after me saying maybe it was a bit high so we dropped it, but i still found it to be high in the front so i have dropped it even further

with the hitch and everything i have it perfectly flat now i am pretty anal about that stuff when towing, i will probably have to adjust it when i hitch up my boat to the back of the trailer, but we will cross that road when we get there

You are going to hitch your boat to the trailer?

Can't beat the 26BH. Mine's been great. With a dog named Gibson, would you by chance be a guitar picker?

i do play but i am more of a fender guy, it was the wife that came up with that one,

it was a combination of the guitars and the brand of whiskey

as far as towing my boat i do plan on it, its a just incase sort of thing if we are going somewhere not too far and we dont have someone that can tow it for me

Nice rig. I agree that the front needs to be lowered or you could experience sway problems. Enjoy your new camper.

it has been lowered, actually it was lowered once the day i got it and 1 more time a few weeks later, the dealer set it up for a stock ride height half ton, where as mine is about 3in taller, i actually had to flip the l bracket that goes in the reciever (dont know the name) they had pointing up, i flipped it over now she sits alot lower, and i have actually had this trailer for about 6 months and today the wife and i actually went in and looked at its replacement, a 2014 eagle HT 27.5 BHS, because honestly i regret not getting the 5th when i bought mine and we can get a smoking deal on the one we want now

so now im trying to sell mine because the dealer wants to give me only 12000 cdn for it when i paid about 24000 after the extended warranty and hitch
so i think the private sale is the way to go
