Our "bowing" problem was with the table with folding legs that is fits in the dining "U" to make another bed. It began to sag after a short time. It's made of particle board with some runners added for rigidity. Doesn't work very well. I made a center prop for it that is 100% removable. A short piece of PVC drain (4" diameter I think) and a couple of flanges to spread the force out. I cut the pipe about an 1/8" too tall and over the last year has removed most of the sag. Didn't bother gluing the flanges on. When we set the table up I put it in the storage compartment or under the TT. Low-tech to be sure but super easy.

HI, I picked up 2014 Jayco Jay Flight 26bh last Friday. I slept in it Friday night with the kids out in the driveway. I noticed after first night. My front bed bowed. I weight 195lbs and it was just me sleeping on it. I add three 2 by 8 board and build frame around it to hold it in place. Slide it in front storage. Done! It held good. It not connected to the bed so I was able to raised the bed. I plan to add thicker plywood and seal the bed. Since there is a opening crack side of the bed that can be seen to the storage below. I don't like open hot air to my bed coming from hot storage. Seal it real good and removed the front panel so I can slide the plastic containers to store under my bed instead of raising.

I'll have to check to see if our bed is bowing but it wouldn't suprise me if it is. I'll probably avoid adding thicker plywood to the bed since my wife has trouble lifting the bed by herself as it is (also have a foam pad on the bed). I'm also not sure if the added weight of 3/4 ply could be supported by the gas bed lifts.

My came with pillowtop mattress. Still not too comfortable as I wanted. Plan to add memory foam pillow top on top of it. I love the trailer itself. It a great looking trailer. Didn't want no slides. Want to be able to hook up and go!
