Looks like I wasn't paying attention to the small print, here is a link to the one I was looking at, they are calling it a Jayco Jay Flight Swift 287BHBE, this is the same floor plan as ours just with some less options http://www.rvmotorized.com/2014-Jayc...-ID5302374.htm

Interesting - so it makes sense now. It's a great layout, so I can see them doing something like this to make it more accessible to more families as the prices have been going up and up on TTs.

As of now I still cannot find a local dealer or a dealer within2-3 hours that has one of these units to see in person. I really like the pics and vids but I would really like to get in one before I make any decisions. I hope all of you who bought one are happy with it an am looking forward to your reviews. Thanks

FINALLY!!!! went to see this floor plan a week ago and really loved it a lot. Now I understand that you can order this with the fiberglass siding I seen some pictures of this online and it really looks SHARP. I think this will be the floor plan and the model we will go with. Does anyone have a picture of this with the bike rack open and closed? I cannot find that online. For the ones that have this unit and floor plan how do you like it so far? Anything you wish would be different? Thanks

The Fiberglass siding wasn't an option for us when we ordered - not sure if we would have ordered that way or not though. Ours has the bike rack, which can scrape on our driveway as it's a steep angle. I had to install the saveajack product to make the rear trailer jacks quickly and easily removable when we get home. Makes it easy to take the bikes with us however. I don't think I have a shot of it, but will look just in case we have a rear outside shot. Wish it was lighter and that the rear bathroom door window as tinted/frosted more as with the light on at night figures can be made out behind it.

Not the greatest angle or shot, but you can see the bike rack under the bumper. It's not as low as it looks as this specific site has a hill in the back portion of it. Essentially, the bike rack is a slide out unit that has a bar that rotates in a vertical position to tie down the bikes to. Also can be used for other items i.e. BBQ, ice chest etc... Nice option if you can get it, especially if bikes are frequent take along items.

We have the BHBE. I agree that I wish it were a little lighter, but the Swift 287 BHBE is lighter; fewer options and trimmings, same floor plan.

One thing I would change about it is the distance between the foot of the bed and the wall in the front bedroom. It's a little tight getting through there in the middle of the night, and DW's foot is just the right height and hangs off the end of the bed to catch the perfect spot in my groin...

We had the trailer just about full last weekend. My brother and SIL slept in the bottom bunk together and said it was cozy, but not clausterphobic. The weather was nice, but even with all the windows open and the vent in the bathroom, it still didn't seem to ventilate very well. I think another roof vent would help.
