Hello everybody, we’d like to welcome you to the Christie’s RV blog; whether you’re a first time visitor, or you’re one of our many repeat customers, we would like to thank you for joining us and allowing our team to talk to you about our latest models with the newest and most innovative features on the road today!
As an authorized Jayco Dealer in Ontario, Christie’s RV is always well stocked with these industry-leading travel trailers and fifth wheels, and the definitely includes the amazing 2020 models. Jayco has been manufacturing the highest quality RVs for decades, and they have one of the biggest and best selections of models and floorplans in the business. These units are widely recognized for their impeccable build quality, attention to detail, and incredible longevity.
Today our focus is on the new Jayco Jay Flight SLX series. This latest offering from Jayco Travel Trailers continues to build on the legacy of previous years’ models which retain their crown as North America’s best selling RVs, a title they have held for an unprecedented 14 years!
Jayco Trailers, including the 2020 Jay Flight SLX have a reputation for having the best build quality in the industry. Issues that plague other brands don’t affect Jayco trailers; things like buckled hitches, which are a thing of the past with Jayco RVs because of the A-Frame design that actually runs through the mainframe, unlike competitor’s tack welded frames. You’re also going to get outriggers that are full width, and spaced at shorter intervals than competitor’s constructions, Jayco spaces them every 4 to 6 feet, for unparalleled support of the walls. Another unique feature of Jayco RVs like the 2020 Jay Flight SLX travel trailer is the I-Class cambered structural steel I Beams which prevent warping overtime at the welded seams, like competitor’s three-piece I beam that can twist and buckle. Of course, we need to mention that the 2020 Jayco Jay Flight SLX comes as standard with the now legendary magnum truss roof system, a construction method that gives a massive 4500 lb roof load.
Backing up that legendary Jayco travel trailers quality is the industry-leading 2-year limited warranty. This lends comfort to any new RV buyer, and at Christie’s RV, we believe the process should be fun and worry-free. You’re taking the stress away when you know that in the very unlikely event of a manufacturer’s defect with a 2020 Jayco Jay flight, you’ll be completely covered for 2 whole years.
One of the factors in the success of the Jay Flight SLX is the rugged good looks of this trailer. It features dynamic graphic decals that accent the appearance, and forge the impression that it’s in motion, even when you’re parked up. One of the hidden bonuses of the 2020 Jay Flight SLX’s design is the physical design itself – Jayco has engineered this trailer to slip through the air more efficiently than ever; this cuts wind resistance, which will help to improve your towing vehicle’s fuel economy. Not only that, but the aerodynamic design also helps to make towing even easier, making this a perfect RV for novices and seasoned campers alike.
The 2020 Jayco Jay Flight at Christie’s RV benefits from Jayco’s advanced construction techniques; perfected over their decades in business, Jayco have built the 2020 Jay Flight SLX using state of the art materials, including fiberglass sidewalls on select models and even enclosed underbellies for superb resistance to debris being kicked up from the road, as well as to protect vital lines and pipes from extremes of temperature and corrosion. The available thermal package, which includes that excellent enclosed underbelly, also includes heating in the undercarriage, as well as foil insulation in the roof and slide out floors. This is one of the many reasons that the 2020 Jay Flight SLX has become a fast favorite amongst 4 season campers.
Continuing with the theme of the exterior, the 2020 Jay Flight SLX boasts some amazing features that further improve the usability and practicality of your RV. Don’t worry about packing light with a Jay Flight SLX – it comes with cavernous exterior storage compartments that are not only large but super easy to access, as well as safe and secure. This model also boasts a convenient outdoor shower – a perfect solution for:
- Washing down dirty pets
- Cooling off on a hot day
- Filling wading pools
- Washing down muddy sporting gear
- Freshwater rinsing anything you may have taken into saltwater
When it comes to floor plan options, you have a huge range to choose from in the Jay Flight SLX series, in fact, between the SLX 7 and SLX 8, there are a total of 21 layouts. One of the floor plans we’d really like to showcase today is the 2020 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 264bh. This layout offers some wonderful amenities; the master bedroom boasts comfortable sleeping arrangements with a queen bad and twin wardrobes. The master bedroom is closed off from the rest of the trailer by an accordion partition. Further sleeping arrangements come in the form of a double bunkhouse – that’s right, double over double bunk beds; so, whether you want to stretch out in bed, or to bring extra people along on your trip – this floor plan gives you options! There’s plenty of seating for day time relaxing too, whether it’s the dinette or the sofa. The other floor plays that Jayco offer in the Jay Flight SLX series include more amazing standard features and optional extras that are really going to let you put your own personal stamp on whichever unit you choose. The living area is packed with ingenious storage solutions – for example, the dinette bench hides storage cubbies with removable trays
If a top-quality kitchen is high on your ‘must-have’ list, then you really need to seriously consider the Jay Flight SLX series of RVs. They feature a 3 burner range which also includes a 9000 BTU Super Burner ring for fast cooking and heating. Sparking up the burners is an easy job each and every time thanks to the built-in piezo igniter. As well as the stovetop, these models feature a sizable oven. The cleanup operation an absolute breeze, too, thanks to the large 50:50 split wash and rinse acrylic sink – the sink is also fitted with luxury fixtures like brushed nickel faucets. A kitchen like this makes perfect sense for those who prefer to cook indoors, or for those who might also enjoy camping when the weather outside might not be properly suited to grilling on the BBQ. Supporting your cooking operations, a microwave oven for quick and convenient heating and a large, 6 cubic foot refrigerator provides ample storage for all your perishable items, if it’s not quite enough space for you, you can always opt for the 8 cubic foot, or even bigger if you need more!
It’s easy to enjoy Jayco Travel Trailers when you realize just how spacious they are. From the towering 81 inch ceilings to the open space of the living area. Of course, there’s LED lighting throughout which definitely keeps the space feeling bright and airy, not only that but the expansive windows and the skylight in the kitchen let in endless natural light!
Your master bedroom is going to become your fortress of solitude; It is incredibly spacious for a compact travel trailer, and because it’s a Jayco, you know it’s beautifully appointed! It comes as standard with a residential queen-sized bed and residential height bed frame topped with a premium Simmons mattress. Simmons also provides an exclusive bedspread and sham set, too. Organization comes easy when you’re working with twin closets, treat them as his and hers, or keep them both for yourself – either way, they are going to help you keep the clutter out of sight, and maximize the usable space in your trailer. We pointed out earlier that the Jay Flight SLX is available with a double over double bunk, but what we didn’t highlight was that each bed has a massive 600 pounds capacity! If you don’t want the double bunkhouse, you can always choose a floor plan that has either single bunks, a fold-out couch, or convertible dinette seating.
Décor options for the 2020 Jay Flight SLX model give you a range of attractive colorways. You can choose from the light and airy ‘Wheat’, the ever so chic ‘Truffle’, the classy ‘Shadow’, or the rich and lustrous Charcoal. There’s a color pattern to suit every taste, so no matter your preference, you’re going to have fashionable and timeless options for your RVs interior. Perfectly complementing the range of décor options, the stunning (and extremely durable) DiamondFlor vinyl flooring is, of course, a standard feature – as is the Shaw USA stain resistant carpet.
