Question Info Jayflight 32BHDS

Hello everyone, new to the group. We are looking at upgrading to a 2014 Jayflight 32BHDS and was wanting to know any Cons/Pros? We currently have an “04” Jayflight 29BH. Excited about the outside kitchen but have heard good and bad on them as far as leaking and such. Have never delt with an automatic awning but am thinking it is going to be a really nice change. Also never delt with the flat fiberglass paneling before. How is it for caulking upkeep? Damage??
Thanks so much....

Info Jayflight 32BHDS

I replied to your message before reading this post. Mine has the aluminum siding not fiberglass which I prefer because I am SCARED TO DEATH of delam issues. By the way the outside kitchen is great. I am going to reset the fridge at a slight angle because the way it is the door will not open far enough to take the shelves out.

We have a 32BHDS, love it. Don't have the outdoor kitchen or fibreglass so can't help there. The only drawback is it is a beast to tow on windy days. We live in the Canadian Rockies so it is all mountain driving and once I got the wd hitch tuned right it became pretty good but there isn't much I can do when the wind starts screaming through the high passes.

We like our 2013 32BHDS. The bunkhouse is nice and roomy and if you opt for the jay-cube is very versitile. It's nice to give the kids their own space when couped up inside! We have had zero issues with the outdoor kitchen leaking. Like others have said, it's is heavy and the only real storage is in the front if you have the outdoor kitchen, not a problem with a good hitch and properly sized tow vehicle. I would recommend getting 50amp and the second ac if you routinely camp in 100+ degree temps. Our unit is also aluminum so I can't speak to the reliability of the fiberglass but I have heard that it is not vacuum laminated like the Whitehawks which many people feel makes it an inferior design. Their are a couple odd things I have noticed like, the heater exhaust is right below the city water connection (I use zip ties to get mine out of the way), the grey valve is under the kitchen/livingroom slide, you can't open the outdoor fridge all the way which makes getting the trays and such in and out interesting. Aside for from those things which are minor annoyances we love it and would highly recommend!

We bought a used 2010 32BHDS this year and are using it seasonally with our two young kids. It is an excellent layout but have a few observations.

If you are most interested in extra space in the bunkhouse consider moving up to the 32BHTS. When comparing prices of new trailers there wasn't much difference.

There is very little room in the master bedroom. Can't really walk around the bed at all so my wife and I are getting changed either in the living room or in the small area between the bed and the wall in the bedroom with our a$$es against the windows. If you're concerned about space in the master bedroom than consider 36BHDS.

We have the 30 amp version but so far no issues blowing fuses. Electric awing is very useful and is on our must have list for future trailers.

Overall, very happy with our 32BHDS.

This is hilarious and SO true!

Happy with our 2013 32BHDS

Very nice unit.

We had a warranty claim when the ladder cracked. Jayco replaced it.

We also got the automatic awning. It is convenient but the way it is set up the awning extends almost straight out, rather than down at an angle. While you can make some adjustments, a manual awning would have enabled us to angle the awning down more, thus securing it in a bigger wind. As it stands, whenever there is any noticeable wind, we generally retract. Don't know if I would buy automatic again.

Overall, I am very happy with the 32BHDS and with Jayco. Highly recommended.

I have the 32 TSBH, which is the aluminum siding. It is little over one year old we love it. Outside kitchen has not been any problem.

If you have a small group, this trailer is laid out nicely. The outside kitchen and outside bathroom entry saves alot of going in and out. The extended seating in the booth is also a plus. Just a great all around roomy camper for sleeping more than a few people.

I just bought mine a few months ago. I was looking for this floorplan for a while in a bunch of different manufactures. No one had exactly what I was looking for in the price range. We absolutely love this trailer so far - I hope I didn't just jinx myself by saying that. There were some minor issues we had to have the dealer correct after using it for the first time. I would say go for it, but if you can wait, prices in the winter are always better - like 3-4k in my case. I still got a good deal (IMO) at $27100 out the door in California. It had options that I liked and I think it was a good deal.
