Just got back from Trip #1

So we made our way to the Oregon Coast this weekend to try out our new 2014 Jayco JayFlight 32RLDS. I could tell right away, fully loaded, the obvious weight difference from my previous 2001 Layton 250LT... but my truck and myself did great getting it over the pass and even passed a few other trucks and trailers that were getting in my way.

I love the layout of the 32RLDS. Our expected disappointment in the lack of counter space was correct, but when the trailer had everything else we wanted, it was worth the purchase. We did enjoy the outdoor kitchen, but didn't use the BBQ that we got along with the purchase....so its still in the box waiting to be pulled out.

The weather was decent for the majority of the trip and only started to rain on Saturday evening and then poured until around 5am. I ended up putting the awning in after I noticed it "shift" a few times with the rain. I don't know if shift is the correct word, but it would drop a few inches and then pop right back up where it was supposed to be. The Dealer told me I didn't need to tighten the bars on the awning, so I didn't...but I am wondering had I locked them up like I did on my manual awning if it would have done the same thing...and my guess is no... So will probably lock it up from now on, especially if rain showers are in the forecast.

I'm 6'5 and had plenty of head space...except when I would put the hide-a-bed back into the couch..I kept hitting my head on the frame of the slide out...will probably put on my daughters bike helmet on the next trip until I learn to duck better.

OVERALL... Love the Jayco trailer and am glad to be part of the Jayco family. Being a brand new Jayco trailer and one of the few with the Fiberglass siding, I had a lot of old timers (anyone older then 38 :-) asking me about the trailer. Even had one guy come knock on my door because he has the older model 32RLDS with the Aluminum siding.

One more photo from the trip... Guess I didn't take much from the entry side or the inside on this trip. Next trip is in a few weeks, will try to upload some interior photos then.

Congrats on the maiden voyage!

The awning behavior sounds normal, it is a "dump" feature (dumps gathered rain water out so it doesn't build up and rip up the awning or bend the supports). It also keeps the awning from getting torn up by allowing the supports to move when it's windy instead of having them rigid, leaving only the awning itself to take the brunt and get ripped up.

Had our maiden voyage also this weekend in our new jay flight swift 26rls. First time camping. Flawless trip. Everything worked out great. From the ease of setup. To cleanup and head home. Very comfortable and look forward to spending every weekend this summer at the shore in it.
