Travel Trailer Trade-Up

This afternoon, we traded in our Rockwood Roo hybrid travel trailer and brought home a new Jayco Jay Flight 28BHS.  Here is the side-by-side on pickup day.

Though the Roo was a great trailer, the tent beds were a bit of a pain to deploy and were really cold in the winter, even when using heated mattresses.  We ordered the new trailer from Jayco though the nearest dealer, Crestview RV in Buda, TX

We really like the floor-plan on the 28BHS, though we expect to make a few modifications.

The storage bay under the back bunks came with the new, larger access door.  Compared to the Roo, the amount of storage is amazing.

Our planned modifications include:
  • add solar power
  • fix the placement of the fresh water pump which rattles badly - it is not attached to a solid surface.
  • redesign the back sleeping area as one-level bed, removing the shirt wardrobe and the bunk bed
  • upgrade the bathroom vent to a more powerful fan
  • replace the sewer vent tops with Cyclone vents
  • replace the shore-power cable with a detachable version
  • various hooks, hangers, and accessories
