MIDDLEBURY, IN - Jayco Inc. has introduced its 2005 line of Jay Feather travel trailers. The brand features the LGT ultra lightweight that is perfect for towing by SUVs, minivans or light-duty trucks; the EXP hybrid expandable travel trailer; and the Sport, an alternative to folding camping trailers.

“We have seen phenomenal growth in the retail markets for the Jay Feather LGT and the Jay Feather EXP line of products,” said Sid Johnson, director of marketing at Jayco. “We have outperformed the competition and these products look better than ever before. The feedback shows we are on target with this line. And based on all statistical reports we have seen, we now know that the Jay Feather is one of America’s best-selling lightweight RV lines.”

To improve the already popular LGT and EXP series, former options have become standard. All units are now prepped for an outside RVQ® grill, while an AM/FM stereo with CD player adds entertainment value inside. Select floorplans offer an electric slideout and bath skylight. The LGT sports a bedroom TV shelf, swivel rocker, bi-fold door and double bed with bunk, while select EXP units don a larger, six-cu.ft. refrigerator.

For enhanced luxury, the Customer Value Package can be added to both the EXP and LGT models. This bundle includes popular amenities such as a tub surround, six-gallon gas/electric water heater, microwave and oven, chrome racing wheels and outside shower.

The Jay Feather Sport features standard equipment such as a patio awning, outside shower, stereo with CD, microwave and five-cu. ft. refrigerator. Introduced in early 2004, the Jay Feather Sport 186 features a unique walk-around queen bed with built-in J-Steel™ sofa, a street-side dinette and pass-through front storage. According to Gardner, the Jay Feather Sport is specifically designed to be towed by small mini-vans and SUVs.
