Does anyone have a Jay Feather 23 BHM

This is our first TT and we're pretty stoked about it. Was wondering if anyone else has one. Any tips or thoughts about it. Anything to look out for and ideas to make it better.

All responses welcomed!

Do you have it yet or is it on order. If it's on order then you might have the first one because their web site does not confirm weights for this unit. Because it's the 1st one it would be in your best interest to go over EVERYTHING with a fine tooth comb!!! Fit and finish, all screws in straight, plumbing lines with no kinks and no stress on the fittings. Make sure they caulk your sinks, you wouldn't be the first one to have a rotted out counter top.

Jayco Jay Feather

Hello there I am new to this forum and was looking over a few questions and came across you thread. I don't have the model you have but I do have a 2007 model of the Jay Feather and just love it. My wife and I go camping every chance we get. I like the fact that my trailer only weighs 5200 lbs and has a tong weight of only 525 lbs which makes it easy to pull with my F 250 diesel truck. I hope you enjoy your trailer just as much as we do.

Not a new floor plan. One of my many brother in laws has one several years old. Can't remember year but same floor plan. We stayed in it once upon a time while our previous full time rig was getting repairs done. It's a good weekender for 2 adults / 2 kids. There are a few things I might would change. I'll jog my brain a little and post later when on a laptop.

Welcome to the forum!

Welcome to the forum!
I think one would be the dinette table, there's no comfortable place for your feet because of the bars on the floor and the up rights and cross bar in your knees way. They say it's a portable table that you can take outside but I wonder how many people actually will do that on a regular bases.

I have the 2016 bhm! I've only owned it since November and have used it on one camping trip. It's my first RV as well and I love it. Since I only have one trip under my belt, I don't have a ton of advice. I can tell you that we quickly realized the need for coat hooks, shelving in the cabinets and insulation (for winter camping).
