Congratulations on the new Jay Flight and welcome to the JOF.

Our Jay Flight has been great. Only a few minor warranty items and those were addressed promptly.

Hi! We just ordered our 2016 23RB last month... I can't answer much as it's still 3-10 weeks away from delivery... but I can try.

Just me (J), my wife (L), and two small dogs

We have had the 23 RB for one year and love it. Nice enough bedroom and a nice large bathroom. It is great for just the two of us but still we do ok when the grandkids go with us. A slide may be better but---we have never had a problem with a slide like many have had. We have been to many campgrounds and never a problem getting in to a site and have pulled it about 5,000 miles with no problems towing.I almost upgraded to a fifth wheel and then decided my original plan was to stay small, camp anywhere we like, tow light, and just enjoy camping life. I am sure you will enjoy yours.

I have a 2015 23RB for sale right now. We thought it would be ok but it turned out it just wasn't big enough for me, wife, and dog.

The 75 inch bed was too short for me, I couldn't get comfortable with my feet hanging off the bed. We keep our lab in his kennel so I had to take the dinette down every night and store it and put the kennel in there and then take it out every morning.
I just needed more room all the way around so I bought a longer unit with a slide and an 80 inch bed, it made a huge difference.

I didn't have any major problems with it though. Right off I fixed a bathroom sink drain leak, a bathroom faucet leak, and a kitchen faucet leak. I had a stabilizer jack fail and I took it to the dealer and got another one, still haven't put it on yet.

I just registered to reply. I bought a new 2016 23rb in December 2015 we stayed in it 2 nights, loved the trailer as I did not want a slide but as someone else mentioned the bed was too short for me, and realized that there was no room to prep the food. The model itself was great just keep these in mind if that works for you. I traded it in for the 2016 29rks which gives me all I need plus 2 recliners. I know my 23rb is at a good price where I traded it at Team rv in Albany, Ga .

Welcome to the forum! Lots of good information to be found after a quick search.

We have had no issues with our 23RB. No leaks, drips or runs. Added a vent cover and TV. Recently bought a soft rifle case to store the sway bars and avoid the grease mess. Next trip we will label all the darn switches.

I will be changing all the locks and going to keyless for the entry door. Upgrading the speakers, inside and out. Considering a TPMS system too.
