Uh Oh - Writing this from the Dark Side!!

Took possession of a 2012 Jay Flight Swift SLX 184BH today! Sitting here at Two Rivers State Park and gotta say--we are loving it!

20 ft long, 7 ft wide, 8.5 ft tall, 2700 lbs dry wt. Towed great, could see around it fine without extension mirrors. Got a brake controller and sway bar.

Sleeps 4-5 with the usual dinette to bed configuration, a bench couch and bunks (pugs have their own top bunk now!)

Hubby just needed something bigger if he was going to enjoy the camping experience. And guess what???? Miss Vickie DOES like a stove, fridge and bathroom! Go figure!

Haven't decided what we'll do with Perris Pacer Bean yet, probably sell-------

Be sure and post pix! You may want to keep Bean for when you go by yourself, want squeeze into a smaller spot (Forest Svc type roads/sites) or save fuel for a quick weekend get-a-way.

I've often said, eggs aren't for everyone. Raz has it right

Going to the dark side? Consider yourself severely chastised. Now you have to worry about roof leaks (so many seams, etc). Don't tell anybody but we have a 31 foot sticky that we use for winters in the south. I wouldn't want anybody to find out about it.

Vickie, Congrat's! Egg's aren't for everybody and that is ok, Glad you found something your Hubby will be more comfortable camping in. Camp On!



As far as Bean, I agree keep it for yourself to camp in.............. Or a lot of people turn them into backyard office/studio's/guesthouse.

After I bought the Fiber Stream I decided to sell the Compact Jr. and I had regretted that decision ever since.
I jumped on the opportunity to buy it back so now I am not rushed to complete its second makeover.

Hi , Vickie and Deely

Congrats on your new camping trailer.
The most important thing is to have fun!
It would be a dull place if we all liked the same things.
Hope we get to see the camper soon.
The Clarks

I'm sorry, I'm a bad influence and I corrupted you. Congrats on your new toy. We stickie owners just have to remember to sell before they start leaking, right?

Thanks everybody (I think!?). Hasn't rained yet (which is a first for us almost! ). So no leaks


We'll try to take great care of it and there is the 2 year warranty -- so maybe it will surprise us and be a keeper!!

And yes, Mike, I WAS thinking of your nice stickie when I was looking!! It's your fault!!!
