New 2014 Jayco 264BH & question

New to the forum and after a lot of searching we found our 1st travel trailer a Jayco 264BH which was picked up from the dealer in Ocala, FL after getting a weight distribution hitch and sway control installed. We contemplated the 26BH but felt the 264BH was a better value for us on a 1st travel trailer. Not a bad ride back down to Tampa on the highway, have not had a chance to actually use the trailer yet but wife is planning the 1st trip.

What if any after purchase changes / modifications have you done to your Jayco?

Regards

Paul

Hello and welcome to the forums! To our 26BH I've added a vent cover over the bathroom vent, insect screens for most of the outside covers/vents, an EMS protector, replaced the incandescent bulbs with LEDs and most recently I added wire shelves to the wardrobe cabinets.

Forgot to mention we bought a cheapie foam mattress topper from Wal Mart as we found the stock mattress a bit too firm. There are also some smaller items we bought like a good sewer hose (to replace the cheap one the dealer gave us), a water filter and some dogbone style power adapters...we have camped at sites where the 30A outlet was pretty worn and having a 50A to 30A adapter came in handy. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! The 264BH and 26BH are pretty very popular models and I'm sure you will enjoy yours!

heh, I don't own a 264BH or 26BH, (mine is 28BHBE), but I have almost the exact same list of first mods as Iraqvet. Only thing I lack is wire shelving in the wardrobes...

X2 with iraqvet

We went with a 3" mattress topper though. X-chocks, counter extender, outside bug lights that clamp on the awning.

Enjoy your new trailer! We've done the same mods others have mentioned, and I also opened up the blocked off areas above the microwave and next to the stereo for additional storage. I didn't put doors over the openings, I just use spring tension bars to hold stuff in the space. I also added battery operated lights in all of the "basement" areas, and blocked off the "basement" area under the bed from the rest of the area.

Welcome from Brandon FL
We went with the Swift for the added value/reduced cost
We also added mattress pads to the bunks and memory foam to our bed
And closed off the pass thru from the under bed storage
Built X chocks
Added Maxx Air vent cover--IMO a must
3M adhesive hooks
Surge protector for the outdoor fridge

I was curious about that space over the microwave. I was thinking I might take that panel out of mine. I don't really need the storage, but it's annoying for me to have wasted space...
