Jayco Feather SLX
Ultra Lite Travel Trailer

Trying to find the perfect trailer for your travels that can be sturdy, reliable and not leave you with a heap of debt to pay off?

The Jay Feather SLX might be the best choice out there for you.

Recently released in early 2014, this latest addition to the popular Jayco brand comes with all of the benefits and additions that you would need for a long-term travel companion that can carry everything you need without weighing you down.

The SLX model is part of Jayco’s larger family of Ultra Lite Travel Trailers.

They are so-called “Expandable” trailers designed as a compromise between pros and cons of Pop-up Trailers (limited options for living & working area) and classic travel trailers (high cost and heavy weight).

The whole idea behind the expandable travel trailers is based on the following:

a)    Living & working area is made as rigid (non-folding) structure. Thanks to that approach it provides room for everything you may need including fully equipped kitchen, dining and living space, closets and bath. So these amenities are non-negotiable guaranteeing you home-like comfort during “out-of-home” time.

b)    Sleeping areas use expandable space. Obviously you just need comfortable bed, but not necessarily whole bedroom in your trailer.

In a way you can call these expandable travel trailers as “Pop-Out” campers. Indeed sleeping areas are popping-out horizontally from the main body of the trailer (hey, I personally claim the invention of the name “Pop-Out” campers!).

Why so much noise about this approach? Well, the new family of Jayco’s Jay Feather Travel Trailers has an enormous advantage, especially priceless these days when we pay more attention to environment. These campers have lower weight and smaller “road-size” dimensions and so many priceless benefits:

  • Lower cost (direct economy right from the start)
  • Can be towed by smaller cars (better fuel economy also due to their lower weight)
  • Easier to manoeuvre on the campground (smaller size)

And yet, they provide full comfort in most important section of the camper: living and working area.

Jayco Feather SLX family includes four models with different floor plans: 16XRB, 18FDB, 18SRB and 19XUD.
