MIDDLEBURY, IN. – The 2014 Jay Feather will expand customers' expectations of family fun. Thanks to its travel-friendly length and lightweight laminated design, Jay Feather is towable by most SUVs, minivans and crossovers. And for 2014, Jayco introduced the all-new Jay Feather SLX, a new series of entry-priced travel trailers. Super light and affordable, the Jay Feather SLX is expected to meet growing buyer demand.

The all-new Jay Feather SLX is Jayco's lightest Jay Feather yet. Weighing under 3,275 pounds, SLX loads up on must-have features in a space-saving design. The Jay Feather touts an impressive list of vehicles, including minivans and crossovers, which are capable of towing this featherweight. SLX is available in three floorplans, ranging from 18- to 21-foot lengths. Two of the three floorplans are expandable models with a 4- to 8-person sleeping capacity.

The SLX joins the already-popular Jay Feather Ultra Lite, available in 12 space-making floorplans. For 2014, this is a mostly-expandable lineup sporting water-repellent DuraTek tent material. This material, built to resist mildew, mold, scratches and cracks, comes with a 5-year warranty. Jay Feather sleeps up to 10 thanks to 1,100-lb. rated tent ends, convertible dinettes, J-Steel sleeper sofas and select model bunk beds. And for customers who want to sleep like a king, the X213 model features a rear king-sized bed.

Thanks to innovative floorplans, expandable areas and hardwall slideouts, Jay Feather creates the traditional camping experience without all the hardships of tent camping. Select models are equipped with a standard 6.3 cu. ft. refrigerator and 40 gallons of freshwater capacity. The oven and 6 gal. water heater are now standard on all models.

Jay Feather is designed to be ultra towable with lightweight construction and quality suspension features. The 2014 Jay Feather is now built on a Norco NextGen frame, featuring the industry's strongest strength-to-weight ratio. This frame, paired with independent rubberized suspension, E-Z Lube axles, standard aluminum rims and an optional axle lift kit, make for an extremely towable lightweight.

All of this is backed with Jayco's industry-leading, 2-year Co-Pilot Warranty — the most comprehensive warranty in the industry. This no-strings attached warranty is not an extended dealer warranty; it's a manufacturer's warranty that comes from the people who build Jayco RVs. Each Jayco is warranted to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship. It's one of the many ways Jayco provides peace of mind (and more fun) to its customers.
