why I traded my Jayfeather in!!!!
I bought the Jayfeather 25Z at Stouts in Indy in March.
The salesman lied to me everytime he opened his mouth.
The brochure said the tongue wt was 635lb including the forced options. After all was said and done, the tongue weighed 860lb.
With tanks full and a battery he said it wouldn't go over 700 lb.
I got the the trailer delivered because the nice salesman said Stouts required a 1200lb wd hitch and I only had 800lb bars. I intended to get the 1200lb bars after I got the trailer. I also wanted a HP dual cam sway system that would work with my reese hitch after I got the 1200lb bars.
A couple days of rain later after I received the trailer My wife noticed a sticker on the tongue that said "warning; do not use over 1000lb weight distribution bars on this tongue and don't pull with the tongue weighing over 975lb.
I have taken the trailer in to Stouts 2 times to have some minor things done.
Each time it was there 4 weeks give or take a day.
I don't like Stouts or the way they lied to me. Maybe trading the trailer in is my way of getting back at Jayco and Stouts.
I have pulled the trailer with my 800lb bars and a Hp dual cam I bought. Installed it myself and also a new prodigy I also installed. Stouts wanted $850.00 to put on the Prodigy and dual cam and I done it myself in about 1.5hrs. for $310.00.
Anyway the Trailer is at The RV Experience in Indy for sale. Its like new and has 1.5 yrs left on the transferable warrantee. All the bugs are worked out and financially I should have kept it. We liked the trailer very well and it pulled great with my Tundra, 800lb bars and dual cam. We pulled it over 1000miles. Some one will get a very good trailer.
I suppose the only way I can forget this thing is to not have anything to do with Stouts and Jayco.
