On this week’s episode of the RV Family Travel Atlas podcast, we are talking about one of the latest tiny trailers to explode onto the RV scene, The Hummingbird by Jayco. Since it became available just months ago, the Hummingbird has sold more units than anyone at Jayco ever expected. We sat down with the product designer, John Fisher and talked about why this small RV is getting such a big response.
Plus, we know this is the start of the RV show season, and many of our listeners will be shopping for their very first RV purchase. So we want to dedicate some time on the podcast talking about that experience.
We spent hours at the 2016 Hershey Show a few of weeks ago, touring RVs with John and Gail, a couple who is new to the world of RVing and looking for a small trailer to enjoy during their empty nest years. We are going to talk about the shopping experience and how it might help you on your own journey to RV ownership.
We chat about:
- Goals and budget before RV shopping
- RV Models toured
- Main points of education as we shopped
- Their takeaways from the RV shopping day
Here is a list of the 7 RVs that made their list for possible purchase after our day of shopping at the Hershey RV show:
- Jayco Hummingbird 17RB
- Jayco Jay Feather 7 18RBM
- Jayco Jay Flight SLX 195RB
- Winnebago Drop 170S
- Winnebago Micro Minnie 1700BH
- Winnebago Micro Minnie 2106DS
- Serro Scotty S188RBR
You might think that RVs keep getting bigger and heavier, but we know that the new tiny trailers are catching the eye of a lot of shoppers. You are listening to Episode 108: Say Hello to the Hummingbird!
