Jay Feather Micro

I was surfing YouTube yesterday when I saw Josh the RV Nerd from Haylett RV talking about a new small TT The Jay Feather Micro he compared to the GeoPro. Looks like its gong to be nice There was short walk through and around of the demonstrator it has rub rails on the one model it would be nice to have a real off road camper just not a flipped axel and bigger tires.

Its on Jayco's website: https://www.jayco.com/products/trave...feather-micro/

There were some really nice features, hopefully a couple will filter UP the line. Azdel in and out, the Blackstone griddle, all those drawers, big fridge (for a little trailer). I was really impressed!

We got a 145rb last year. The 173MRB looks like our next camper, should tow nicely behind our 2019 Ford Ranger FX4

The thing would fall apart off road honestly. I had less than 600 miles when 2 weeks ago I broke the driver side axle spring (195RB Baja). Tech said it was because I went down a forest road. GMAFB. I've seen numerous Honda Civics on that road!

And the way my trailer is designed I think it should have a 5k axle as everything is on the driver side (fresh water, appliances, etc.). Maybe it would have brakes that can actually work with the large LT tires they use.

So I guess this is replacing the Hummingbird line?

Bye Bye Hummingbird ...... seems to be a Jayco thing lately. Just like the A-frame pop-up a few years back, they jump into the segment pool (r-pod & Aliner), and jump out right away when the model doesn't sell large volumes..... face it, the Hummingbird is a cool concept, but when they sit on a showroom floor next to a jayflight, that is less money, it must be harder to sell. Cool factor can only go so far!

The Humming Bird had a lot of lost head room with the curved roof ends. Honestly that is why, (ok price too) we got the 145rb you can walk around in it with out ducking. I am not convinced that the round ends or the tear drop shape really save you in gas weight is weight and you still have to move it.
