Those are good solid trailers and they made a ton of them looked at one in 06 wish I had bought it instead of the used p.o.s. I did.

Since you already have a Jayco..it should come as no suprise that more people who own a Jayco will buy another Jayco when buying another new RV than any other brand.
The Jay Flight has been the #1 selling Travel Trailer sold in North America for 7 years in a row. That speaks volumes since it is certainly not the most inexpensive TT out there! It also has the highest resale value of any Travel Trailer per the NADA Kelly Blue Book.
And Jayco consistantly wins the Dealer Satisfaction Index Award for quality and value for the past 6 years.
And the Jay Flight tows extremely well too...well balanced and nice riding...Outside speakers, EZ-Lube Axles, etc.
The Jayco you're looking at is identical to our last Jayco Eagle (Jayco #6) as far as floorplan. Even without a slideout is was roomy enough for us and our 2 kids and dog. We have a 8 year old Jayco Jay Flight 5er Bunk model currently. LOVE IT!
It has the Aluminum sides, full 2x2 clear lumber framing that is on 12"-14" centers like a house, R-7 roof/floor/wall fiberglass batting insulation, (If it has the optional insulation package the roof goes up to R-22) a sturdy wood framed 5/8" tongue and groove marine grade plywood floors (solid to walk on), big sturdy cambered "I" beam steel frame with integraded tongue, steel outriggers support the walls every 4 ft, and a 90 gallon fresh water tank...don't travel with that full! It would weigh 720 lbs!
And it has all the ammenities and fully equipped for camp'n!

I have an 09 jayflight g2 26bh and love it, we boondock and it pulls good and good clearance for where we go. Only wish it had the 90 gal tank instead of the 32 gal tank no big deal I just have to use a transfer pump and watch my black and grey water levels. I think 2010 is when they started with the 90gal of fresh water. I have pulled it on old logging roads and down through ditches and it is holding up very well. The only problem that I have had with it is the dinning table bench, the out side is wider than the inside so when you are slidding out you kick the out side edge and knock the front off the cabnet under the seat I had to put some 1x1 in the corner and use some real screws to fix it. We use it almost every weekend from june to aug and that small problem is all that I have had, if I ever get another camper it will be a Jayco.
My husband and I bought a 2012 26 BH this spring and we have taken it on a few short local trips. I think it is safe to say that we all love it, we have three girls ages 8, 6 and 1. We have enough room to set up a pack-n-play (a portable crib) where the dinette is, that our one year old sleeps in. It works very well for us. We bought a much bigger TT than what I was originally considering, mostly due to the suggestions by folks on this forum. I was concerned that we would end up never using it, find that we did not enjoy it, or that it was more trouble than it was enjoyable, so I wanted to start out small. I am SUPER glad that we did not start out as small as I was originally thinking. I have to say that I already wish we had bought the same floor plan but with the slide out, just to give us that little bit of extra room.
I would suggest the bigger 15,000 BTU AC, it works very well at keeping us nice and cool. So far I think my only complaint is that I do not like shuffling myself around the queen size bed. Everything else so far has been great! We are getting ready to take our first "big" trip in the next few weeks. I think it would be plenty of room for the three of you. Good luck in finding a good used one.
