Sleep four or five in under 20'? Trying to wrap my head around that. Let me get back to you.

The 19(8)RD (23 ft. 1") is a good choice also the Jay Feathers series are lightweight which will fit in your range. Jay Feathers are lower to ground level and the height is also lower. Just go to the Jayco Website look at brochures and floorplans

We went through this same type of decision just a few months ago. I think your best bet is the X213 (slide out king sized bed) or something a little bit bigger with a murphy bed. We ended up getting a 2015 Jay Feather 23MBH (murphy bed with bunks). It was a little bigger/longer than I wanted initially, but once you cancel out hybrids it's tough to stay under 20 feet.

You may want to look at a Fifth Wheel or Trailers in a bunk house style. We love our bunkhouse 5th wheel. It sleeps up to 8 and we're taking it back to the Midwest this July, so the grand kids can join us.

We LOVE camping and really want to continue sharing this with our kiddos.
We've read lots of great things about Jayco but I swear I feel like I'm losing my mind trying to sort through all of the different models to find one that checks off all of our boxes.
We are looking for:
Needs: Bunks, size 6 or 8 fridge, room to sleep at least 5. We'd also like to keep it as short and lightweight as possible because some of our favorite remote camping spots are on the tiny side. We'd also like double axle because we drive cross country quite a bit.
I'm so sorry if this is a foolish thread but I assure you, I have looked and looked for days and days and can't seem to find one that is small/light and has a large enough fridge for us. Is there a Jayco that works for us? I hope so!! Thank you so much!!

We own the X254 if you have any questions about it. It is 27 ft tip to tip. We are very happy with it. No rails or ladders for bunks. Something we'd like to add.

We have a 19RD, and for the two of us, it's perfect. The optional bunk above the bed will remove the storage space there, but add another place for one (I think) more. The young-uns must be small for the dinette, and couch. Ours is a 2012, and has a 6 cu.ft. fridge. We also use an outside cooler for drinks. We think it's a great floor plan for us, but it's small for a family. I would try to get a personal look at one first.

Are you looking for new or are you opened to used as well? I just bought a 2007 Jay Flight 20BH. It can sleep 5, a big fridge and a nice size kitchen for the size. Everything that we were looking for and weighing in at just over 4000 lbs. You can find good deals on used units. Ours doesn't even look as if it was used that much. Unfortunately, this floor plan is made anymore. It is the same floor plan as the 26BH but without the queen bed in front.
