I asked the factory to validate the equipment list on their website this morning. You can see the exchange on their facebook wall page.

Here was the response to my question that started everything.
RE: Customer Service Web Inquiry B17e0081‏

Mr. James Hilliard, Thank you for the email and the question. When the units were being designed they were not sure which of the units wouldget EZ Lube axles and which ones would not get them. I understand the brochure stated that the unit was being built with them but that was the best information at the time it was printed and has since changed. The unit was built correctly and the EZ Lube axle were not part of that build. The dealer is correct, the SLX units do not have that option.

Thank you,
Tom Britton

Wow --- that is a huge mistake by Jayco! Wonder if that is all Swifts? I could swear that 264BH I saw had them.

It appears the SLX lineup is a subset of the Jay Flight Swift series and has a unique equipment list. The tire and axle issues have been updated on the website. The factory advised they would validate the listed equipment so presumably it's correct now.

Nope. The brochure they published to the dealers is now wrong...I realize they have the standard disclaimer at the bottom that says "this is accurate at the time of publication", but it is wrong to have the customer be the one to discover the error after they purchase it. That is like saying - oh, we dont include an over anymore, just a cooktop. While it is a small thing, it does influence your overall purchasing decision between a swift and a flight.

Here is the online version that is still on the web site which shows EZ and 15"s. If I purchased one, I would sure give Jayco hell about that snafu.

When the Swift 26 first came out I remember the equipment list seemed very similar to the Jayflight 26 BH, yet the price is less so it must be a somewhat different animal or it would make little sense to offer it. There must be little things done differently here and there to account for the price difference, like 20 lb tanks instead of 30`s and the previously mentioned lack of EZ lube axles and there must be other small differences as well. It must have taken them awhile to update their website.

Good. Been really cold in Ohio this week, but yesterday was nice. I spent time installing the the sway control ball on the A frame yesterday, and modifying an old bike rack to fit my waste water tank. Don't know if there will be any need for it (I used it all the time with my pop-up). If it turns out that I will be using it, it is ready
