JayFlight 26RKS .....interesting

Anybody out there have one of these? Specifically the floorplan with the side bunks? Either way, can you tell me about your 26RKS? What you tow with, and how you like it?

Thanks!

I have a 2007 25RKS, no bunks tho.

I tow with a 2011 Ford F150 5.0 SCREW. I also use and equalizer hitch. No problems towing up and down I-17 from Phoenix to Flagstaff, lots of elev change. :hihi:

My wife loves the RKS portion, I wish now that we would have purchased the newer model that the slide is larger and the large closet also slides out. The area outside the bathroom is a bit narrow for me. 6'2" 265lbs....

Kitchen placement is nice and the rig does well in 40-50 mph wind gusts while camping. Ask me how I know....

Last spring we bought 2010 256rks eagle super lite, we love it. I love the rear kitchen and the super slide, bathroom is a little small, but love everything else. Can't wait til spring!!

We also have a 2007 25RKS. I love the rear kitchen. It is perfect for the two of us and our pug. Tons of room. We tow with a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel.

We have the 256rks, It was the only floorplan my wife and I really liked and yes the bathroom is a little small. we wish it had a shower stall instead of a tub. We do love the trailer though and would by another

Not quite the same, but we have a 2010 24RKS. Much nicer than our previous rig, a 29-ft bunkhouse Dutchmen. Better quality, great floorplan, and more storage than we could ever use. We tow it with a Sierra 1500 crew cab.
