Why we recommend the Jayco Jay Flight SLX travel trailer: Out of the 10+ brands of travel trailers from Jayco, the Jay Flight SLX travel trailers prove to be a good addition to our list of 4 seasons travel trailers. It provides a good mix of insulation, features, upgrades and floorplans, such as the Jay Flight SLX 145RB and the Jay Flight SLX 154BH.
