Lightweight Spotlight: Jay Flight Swift SLX
Lightweight Spotlight: Jay Flight Swift SLX avatar


JayFlightSwiftSLX_towshotAt Jayco, we strive to build lightweight products that deliver an enjoyable towing experience. With a variety of product offerings, we wanted to make sure these lightweight legends have a place to stand out, so we created our new Easy Towing page. From minivan-friendly trailers to lightweight fifth wheels, this page makes it easy to scope out our lightest products, complete with gross vehicle weight ratings and handy vehicle tow charts!

In spirit of the landing page, we’re showcasing one of our lightweight products each week, starting with the perfectly sized Jay Flight Swift SLX. We love this lightweight for a number of reasons, starting with the fact that it’s part of the Jay Flight family — America’s No. 1 selling travel trailer for eight years straight!

Jay Flight Swift SLX is towable by most minivans and crossovers. You don’t have to have a truck to enjoy a Jayco RV. And, with a space-saving design, families don’t have to worry about storing it at an off-site location. Less than 8′ 8″ tall, SLX can fit into most residential garages, and at 7’ wide, it’s easy to see around when towing. This is an RV you can tow, and you can store.

Jay Flight Swift SLX comes in six versatile floorplans, featuring convertible dinettes, select model bunk beds (you can fit the whole family), and expandable tent ends.

Jay Flight Swift SLX allows you up to load up on fun, without weighing yourself down.

Classic Jayco 4-1

Lately, we’ve been sharing a lot of information about Jayco’s new brand promise — Generations of Family Fun — our commitment in creating lifelong family memories. During our introduction of this promise, we recently launched a fun Facebook contest, searching for Jayco classics hard at work, and you helped us find them!

We were proud to receive nearly 100 photo submissions, showing Jayco RVs spotted on the road, in driveways and parked in campgrounds. Each week, for four weeks, fans that participated were entered into a random drawing for a $100 Visa gift card. Seeing all of these classic RV is a testament to the durability of our products and the fun you can have in them. You can still view all of the photos we received here.

We then took the top-five oldest RVs and let our Facebook fans vote on a $500 grand-prize winner. Tony Pockets Hericks won with his 1970 travel trailer snapshot, snagging 32.1% of the vote. Jennifer Crutcher Franzo was runner-up with a mint-green 1970 pop-up submission (29.7%).

We want thank all the Facebook fans who helped us archive some wonderful memories, and we hope you continue to have fun in your Jayco — whether it be old or new.

Jayco creates a new brand promise.

Jayco’s story begins in a place where fireflies are as plentiful as open fields and where Amish buggies rattle down country backroads. It’s here, in the heart of Indiana, where Lloyd Bontrager created an innovative lifter system that led to a better fold-down camper. Loaded with more conveniences, he believed his camper would bring families closer together.

Forty-five years later, we’re still committed to that same passion, and to ensure we never lose sight of that, we recently created a brand promise to help reinforce that mission — Generations of Family Fun. We believe, at the core, this tagline conveys our desire to help families create lifelong memories — the cornerstone of our 45-year-old company.

We invite you to learn more about the Jayco promise. You can visit to watch our new brand video, explore fun product features, discover a historical timeline and join in on some social media fun. In addition, we’re launching a five-week Facebook contest to find the oldest Jayco RVs still hard at work today. If you spot a classic and post a photo of it, you could be the lucky winner of a $100 Visa gift card. During the final week of the contest, we up the ante with a $500 gift card. So make sure you watch our Facebook feed for all the fun giveaway details.
