Noobie needs clarification about Trim Levels

I belong to several forums and hate it when a new person joins an asks a question that's been beaten to death. Now I am that person but my Google-foo has failed me so I'm hoping someone knowledgeable can clear things up.

I have pretty much decided to get a Jayco Jay flight 154. It is what comes with that 154 that has me more confused than I started a week ago.

From what I've seen, there is all sorts of combinations between: SLX, SLX 7, BH, BHW, and Baja..and yet I can find no specs that explains the differences.

What even makes it worse, is the BH (from my understanding) means Bunk House and so it has those 2 bunk beds...and yet multiple RV site claim some seep 3 and some sleep 4.

All I know for sure is that I need those 2 bunks, has to be <= 18' long, has solar, and I'm going to need that extra lift that the Baja has.

Any info, links, etc would be greatly appreciated!

I can help with a couple. SLX is a series. Some come in 7 foot wide, some 8 or used to. BAJA is not a model exactly but has lifted axle(s), bigger tires and sometimes bigger tanks for out west dry camping. BH is bunk house and number of beds vary based on year and design changes. Even mid year changes happen.
Hope this helps a little.

Google Jayco Jay Flight vs SLX, that will help you some.

Have you started here? It shows that the Baja package is only available on rigs that are built in the Idaho plant.

Thanks..it does... I had read that people thought the "w" meant wide (as in like 8 foot), but when I find a 154bhw it claims it is still only 7.

This wouldn't be an issue as much except when you search RV sites, they seem to break all those variants down separately. So say I search on 154bh, it doesn't include the 154bhw or the SLX 7 154..., etc.

Yeah and the they have Indiana models that basically have the exact same features but they don't call it Baja.

The way they name their Model/Trims (whatever you call it) is so confusing. I mean it I understand vehicles have different trim names depending on if they're in North America or Asia...but this is ridiculous

Looking at Jayco's website. It looks like the 154BHW is the what you're asking for. I'm guessing that BHW stands for Bunk House Wide-stance Axle. W might also mean west indicating an Idaho build.

The 154BH can only be optioned with the STX package (Indiana build).

As for the number they can sleep. Well deep subject. In the bunkhouse you may have a lower bed that is a double and an upper that is a single. Some models have two singles or maybe 2 doubles. Have to look at the floor plan to determine. Also many of the sofas and dinettes turn into beds. Sometimes they say 2 can sleep there, but only if they are kids. Key, just pay attention to the space.

Like I said. Deciphering model codes is sorta like trying to figure out vanity plates sometimes.

From what i always understood it was because many of the Idaho units get shipped West of the Mississippi. Thus the BAJA vs STX.

Perhaps this will help with manufacturing location if you have a VIN number. I can't paste it in here, but if the second # in the 4th section is a "1" it was made in Indiana, if a "7" it was made in Idaho. No code for width that I can see.


Do a Google search for "Jayco VIN decoder" or "Jayco VIN number structure". It explains all the codes. Or if you send me an email to <jbvelz@gmail.com> I'll email the doc to you.

Im pretty certain the w means west built at the Idaho plant. Our SLX 212QBW was built in Idaho. Its basically identical to the 212QB built back east. Or Midwest, I guess.

The "w" does denote a West Coast version. If you compare the specifications for the 154bhw and the 154bh you'll notice there are some differences between the models such as different cargo capacity values, different fresh water tank size, slightly different dimensions, larger furnace BTU on the "w" models, etc.
