Our New 2005 Jayco Jay Flight 27BH travel trailer

Page One

In late March of 2005, we picked out a travel trailer for the family. We bought this model specifically because we found it to be a good size for our family of five (three kids, two adults). There is sleeping space for everybody without having to fold down the dinette or futon sofa, but if we want to travel with another family, those areas can always be made up for additional sleeping space. It has all of the bells and whistles we desired, without being luxurious beyond practicality. We're really excited about getting out in our "home away from home".

Here it is all hooked up to my Suburban on the morning after the night we picked it up from the dealer.

At Champoeg State Park, our first weekend out.

Our first outing - a day trip to Champoeg State Park

March 26, 2005

Here's a photograph taken while I was sitting in one of the dinette seats, looking toward the front of the trailer (where the "master bedroom" is located).

These are the bunks in the back. One is a small twin bunk, and the other is a normal sized double. Both have windows (as can be seen from the exterior shot above). The closet has a rod for hanging clothing, and the double bunk lifts up for ample storage. It also has a locking pass-through door to the outside.

The stove has three burners, and the oven is a typical small, but adequate RV unit. There is an exhaust fan and a microwave oven as well.

There isn't a lot of counter space, but a cutting board that fits over the sink is included, and helps increase meal preparation space.

This shot shows the freezer, refrigerator, oven, stove, exhaust hood and microwave.

This photograph shows how the vanity is located outside of the bathroom, allowing people to wash hands, brush teeth and primp while another uses the shower or toilet. We thought this was a nice feature. I am going to put some hand sanitizer in the bathroom, though, and encourage the kids to use it before coming out of the bathroom. Once out, they will be able to wash their hands normally.

Here's a shot looking to the back of the trailer. It shows that there is actually quite a bit of kitchen storage space available. In addition to the visible cupboards, there is storage above the dinette too.

The dinette can actually fold down into a sleeping area for two, as does the futon sofa.

The back beds are located directly behind the dinette wall. I am standing at front of the "master bedroom" to take this photograph.

This shows where the door is located in relation to the rest of the trailer.

From this shot, the master bedroom area is somewhat visible. That sofa is a futon that folds down to sleep two. Total sleeping space available is listed at nine. Two people in the queen (master bed), two people on the double (bottom back bunk area), one person on the twin bunk (above the double in the back), two people on the futon sofa, and two people on the fold-out dinette area).

Michael was checking our tank levels.

Testing the water after hook-up.
