Congrats on your purchase!


We will have to stay in touch and compare notes as we go forward. I am adding the roof vent cover, jack flip foot and oxygenics shower head to mine this weekend.

Hmmm... At the moment the only thing I'm planning is replacing the shower head. I'm OK with a few wood blocks, but the jack flip foot would be pretty cool. The other thing I think I'll need is new wheel chocks, 'cause I'm upgrading from a Jay Flight SLX 165RB - only has one axle.

What state are you in? Here in PA we're looking at a possible sales tax increase from 6% to as much as 7.25%. I haven't signed the final purchase papers yet because for tax purposes I have to deal with the money after Jan. 1, and the sales tax thing will cost a couple hundred dollars depending on when it takes effect.

Well we are in Texas. and I also had to add a few chocks we upgraded from a StarCraft AR-ONE 18QB that was also a single axle trailer.

I see you are from Lancaster we loved the Amish area we visited there a couple years ago when we were still in Hotels.

We want to go back now with the trailer but probably be in two years when I retire.

This year was our first with a TT since a Coleman popup more than 30 years ago, and we loved it. We also got a Thousand Trails 2-zone annual membership - seems there are something like 5 Thousand Trails resorts within about 50 miles of our home, which makes for a nice variety. Our *local* favorite is Thousand Trails Hershey, but we've also been to TT sites near Cape May, New Jersey, and Chesapeake Bay, which isn't far from Williamsburg, VA. So after enjoying this year with our *small* Jay Flight SLX 165RB, we decided we needed something a bit bigger. Hence the 23RLSW.

For both of you, what is your feelings on your 23RLSW so far. We ordered one last week and will be delivered first part of March.


One thing we noticed after going back to look at the unit was the shower door hits the toilet and cannot open more than 1/2 way. Kind of a stupid design as far as I'm concerned. You think they would have used a curved base with 2 sliding doors. Other than that looking forward to taking delivery. Wireman

I noticed the shower door thing on our initial sales walkthrough, but it didn't really bother me. Although I agree, design could have been better on that. I just don't see it as a major concern.

Another recent purchaser of a 23RLSW mentioned here on the forums that his came with much larger holding tanks than the 22.5 gallon tanks the documentation claims.

As things have worked out, I'm still a couple of weeks away from picking mine up from the dealer. Then the fun starts.

We just got back from a 4 day outing in ours was our first trip since we picked it up at Thanksgiving.

We loved it so far no concerns from our 4 day trip wife complained about the toilet seat creaking and feeling cheap. Was not something I thought was a problem. But I am sure a new seat is in the future!

Everything worked fine and only thing I noticed was a piece of trim at the bottom of the pass thru was loose will have to attend to that.

The shower door hitting the toilet was not a concern for us.

We bought our 23RLSW in July of last year and was able to take it out a few times. We love it! Ours was a 2015 so came with the shower curtain instead of the doors. Wife really does not like the shower curtain and we inquired if we could change to the shower door after seeing the 2016 model and got talked out of it as it would void our warranty. Guess we will just change out the curtain instead. No other mods till spring now.
Just checking the Jayco website and see they have revised the model # and specs for the 2016 model of this trailer.
