If you live for the weekend, the Recon ZX toy hauler was made for the way you live, with plenty of room for everything—and everyone—you need to make your trip an unforgettable one. Recon ZX combines extreme comfort with extreme durability for a toy hauler that’s tough enough to handle whatever the road throws at it, without sacrificing liveability or amenities. The Recon ZX combines spacious living areas, multiple slideouts, a full-sized kitchen, residential-style bathrooms and an expanded garage into a hard-core hauling machine that’s always ready for the next off-road adventure.





Weight Definitions

The weights of certain options and/or option packages are not included in the UVW listed in the specification charts. The addition of options will decrease the CCC.

Unloaded Vehicle Weight (UVW): Sometimes referred to as "Dry Weight." UVW means the typical weight of this trailer as built at the factory. The UVW, as used in product literature and other promotional materials, does not include cargo, fresh water, LP gas, options or dealer-installed accessories.

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR): GVWR means the maximum permissible weight of the trailer, including the UVW plus passengers, personal items, all cargo, fluids, options and dealer-installed accessories. The GVWR is equal to or greater than the sum of the UVW and the CCC.

Cargo Carrying Capacity (CCC): CCC means the maximum weight of all passengers, personal items, food fresh water, LP gas, tools, other cargo and dealer-installed accessories that can be carried by the trailer. CCC is equal to or less than the GVWR minus the UVW.

It is important for your safety and enjoyment that your tow vehicle be adequately sized and equipped to tow and handle the GVWR of the RV you select. Review weights and ratings of your tow vehicle and consult a competent advisor for questions or advice. Whether you are new to RVing or a veteran, get a feel for the performance of your tow vehicle and the RV together before heading out on the roadways. When you tow an RV, you must drive differently than you do when driving a single vehicle. Practice hooking up, driving, backing up and braking in a safe environment or seek out professional instruction.

See specification chart above, Jayco affixes a weight label to each new RV which lists weight information for that vehicle.
