The Jayco Jay Flight is one of Jayco’s best selling travel trailers. In this article, we are going to take a look at this lightweight travel trailer and check out some of its many features that come with “America’s Top-Selling Travel Trailer.” The Jay Flight is built by Jayco travel trailers out of Middlebury, Indiana. Jayco was founded by Mr. Lloyd Bontrager in 1968. Below is an exterior photo of the Jayco Jay Flight 2017 model.
Jayco Jay Flight Construction
Let’s begin with the frame with which the Jay Flight is built on. Jayco starts off with one of the strongest frames in the industry. Unlike their competitors who modify or weld their stock frames, Jayco custom-manufactures their frames for higher strength and durability. Instead of the typical 8 foot separation when it comes to the out-riggers, Jayco spaces their outriggers at 4-6 feet apart. This allows the frame to better support the weight of the walls. Another unique feature of the Jayco frame is that the A-frame runs through the main frame preventing the hitch from buckling, which is a common issue with some of the other tack-welded designs.
The roof system is a Magnum Truss design which when tested, withstood 4,500 pounds. This exclusive roof construction can hold loads that are 50 percent heavier than the competition’s roof system design. The Jayco Jay Flight has a slew of other construction features that add to its durability. Here are some more construction features of this Jayco travel trailer:
- 2 x 2 vertical wood studs which provides maximum load capacity and allows for safer wiring.
- 7-inch headers are used between the roof and the slide-outs similar to a load bearing wall in typical home construction.
Below is a video showing the Magnum Truss Roof System.
