I’ve seen pics of the Jayco Hummingbird 10RK for a couple month, but up until now hadn’t heard much about it. Today, Jayco officially introduced the 10RK, what I like to call a “box drop” trailer. It’s the same idea as a traditional teardrop trailer, but instead of the classic teardrop shape, it’s built with a square design.
The 10RK comes with the traditional Jayco 2 year warranty and sits on two Goodyear Endurance radial tires. The galley area is equipped with a TV, microwave, refrigerator, and sink with some storage. Quick observation that sticks out is the exterior height of 90″, despite it’s just 13′ length. Most residential garages have 7′ garage doors, so this would be problematic for storing it onsite for some. Also, the unloaded vehicle weight of just over 1500 lbs will likely rule out towing with some lighter tow vehicles capable of towing lighter weight teardrops.
But that said, if those factors aren’t a factor for you, give it a look. I’ve not seen one in person yet, but Jayco sells the most trailers in the free world, so the Hummingbird 10RK is likely no slouch. I found just two for sale on rvtrader.com. One dealer in Minnesota, Ted’s RV Land, showed an MSRP of $18,500 with a selling price of $10,300, which may not be too bad for the budget conscience buyer wanting to get in to this type of trailer.

We just saw this at the York RV show. It was sold and I think the show price was 8,999. Was a very cute and appealing little thing. You could comfortably sit in the doorway. It was way less confined looking than the Tabs. An awning would be a great add on over the door (s).
The US Goodyear tires are 14″ and larger acc’d to their website.
I just bought mine to tow behind my ’12 Jeep 2 door Wrangler. Its perfect. Massive ground clearance due to the torsion axle. Lots of goodies came with. It rolls across the scales at #1500 lbs and tows fantastic. it offers a lot more than some of the serious “JEEP ADVENTURE” over landing trailers that cost way more. im hooked. I found mine in line. Nit many Jayco dealers had them as of 8/15/18. I drove out of my big city and went from $21k down to $11,300 out the door. Shop around. Dont be afraid to drive little. I saved over $4k form the next lowest price. Jeep Freeks, you will be in love!
