Jayco Fans will appreciate this ICON

If you’ve ever wondered how much vacation you can fit into a travel trailer under 30′ long… check out the Jayco JayFlight…   usually they spend so much time being used you never get a chance to see one in this condition.. we caught one sitting still!

2010 JayFlight 27′ Model 24 FBS Bumper Pull
EAZ-Lift Weight Distribution system plus SWAY BAR lets you move these with a half-ton pickup.  The slideout gives you a lot more room that you’d think for a trailer of this length.

The bathroom is at the end and again, gives more room than you might think.  Yes, you can sleep 6.  While some smaller trailers seem cramped or diminutive… not this one!

The SF-FQ Models are designed for interior serviceability with a front (inside) gas connection and only a small vent terminal on the coach exterior, permitting installation up to 9 inches from the wall with  no exterior access door is required.

For design flexibility, all SFQ Models feature identical cabinet dimensions.

All SFQ Models also feature quiet, multi-ported stainless steel burners, sealed forced-draft combustion, automatic direct spark ignition and low amp draw.

If you must order for parts for your furnace, always get the model and serial numbers from the tag on the furnace – designs get revised from time to time.

2014 Avenger – Prime Time Ultra Light Travel Trailer

If you’ve heard of Forest River you’re not alone… they’ve made hundreds and thousands and maybe even millions of vehicles now.  But have you heard of Prime Time yet?

Probably you will —  especially if this travel trailer is a good median example.  Very light, very comfortable, and while on the small side still comfortable enough to live in for extended periods.  And, with Forest River on the VIN tag, you know the heritage is long and dependable, so if you ever need to add something or replace a part, it’ll be there.

While it’s labelled as Light or Ultra Light… it is not light on features or comfort.
Only in being easy to pull and easy on the tongue is it light.

2014 Forest River Avenger 25RL  Bumper Pull
Travel Trailer By Prime Time

25′ long, 7500 GVWR, no slide outs.
Large pass through storage at nose end.
Sleeps 4-6.  Fully self contained, so bring along some muchines and drinks, and you’re set for fun!

Do you have autopark brake Problems?

Source: autopark brake replacement.pdf

 

There are  times what seems like an awesome idea doesn’t work out quite as planned – IE, the parking brake that automatically applies for you when you finally stop for the day.

The pdf above is a good read, and lets you know you’re not the only person to have had the parking brake come on all by itself while you’re going down the highway…

2011 Elkridge 29RKSA – A Spacious, Comfortable Icon Fifth Wheel

Clean, comfortable, roomy, a real home…    So, here’s another ‘virtual tour’ of a home on wheels called the
