Jayco’s line of Jay Flight travel trailers—including the Jay Flight, Jay Flight Bungalow, and the Jay Flight SLX— has spent ten consecutive years as the top-selling recreation vehicle worldwide.

The Jay Flight brands have earned success because of a commitment to a quality product enjoyable by all since the product launch in 2001. Many of the employees have worked with the Jay Flight line since this time. Through the years, nearly 150,000 families have chosen the Jay Flight family of travel trailers.

Amy Duthie, Senior Director of Product Development of Jay Flight Travel Trailers, has worked closely with the Jay Flight family. “It’s exciting to see how Jay Flight has transformed over the years and to be a part of it.” Duthie said. “We have strived to remain true to the original goal of bringing the best in livability, features and value to the retail owner.” Duthie continued, “Derald Bontrager, president and CEO, has always said ‘We build campers one at a time for one family at a time.’ This is what we have always done, and will continue to do every day. It is this principle, along with our great dealer partners, which has helped Jay Flight reach and remain at the top of the RV industry for 10 years.”

Key updates for model year 2016 Jay Flights include all-new exteriors, interior décor upgrades, and the addition of new features such as power awnings on SLX models, upgraded technology features and a digital remote control for slide rooms, awnings, and lighting (available in Jay Flight). The 2016 models will be available in mid-May.

In honor of this achievement, Jayco has launched a website commending the Jay Flight.
