Looking at getting back in the RV game after almost 8 years. We’ve narrowed it down to the Jay Feather 25BH...Most likely...Anyone have experence with this or a similar trailer? I’d be curious to hear your reviews on this or a similar model, and Jayco in general. Previously have had Coachman and Forest River trailers, but like I said, it’s been about 8 years now.
Thanks!

If you plan to tow it to a seasonal site then it will work better.

As a Jay Flight owner, the "feather" part worries me. I would rather have the JFlight, I think it has more beef where beef is needed.
Im not up on the 'Feather' options but I wanted the Elite package that the JFlight offers which incls 8 options and a total of 88 gals of water. ( I don't haul that much, I need the capacity at my boondocking camp, I fill once I get there) I also wanted 15" wheels, im not sure about the 'feather' wheel size. The MOR RYDE is a nice option too, it smooths out the ride.

The 'feather' also has small holding tanks . To be honest, the Jflight is flimsy enough and didn't want to take the chance of a lighter built TT.

The dry wt which is going to be higher than what's posted, will leave you with not much cargo capacity if you look at the gross veh weight. It seems to me that this model Jayco Feather will be very easy t0 overload and that means you have to watch the axle rating, tire rating and the integrity of the frame which may or may not be up to the task 3-5 yrs down the road. You will need to watch where the tongues 'A' frame meets the front crossmember. Keep an eye on those welds for cracking. Take a look to see how all the holding tanks are supported.

Switched to Jayco after a half dozen other brands, mostly Forest River products, and Jayco is much better quality than what I had before.

In 2006 I bought a new 27-foot 2006 Jayco JayFeather because it was light and good-lookng. It's still that way, and still serving me well.
