“V” for VERY Energy Efficient


Jayco Skylark

One of the things that strikes you first about the Skylark travel trailer by Jayco is it’s unique V-nose. While it’s very stylish, we think it should really stand for Very Energy Efficient, given that the 2012 Skylark is Jayco’s most energy-efficient travel trailer!

According to Jayco, this light-weight package is towable by 75% of all cars, trucks and SUVs, measures 22 feet long and weighs only 2,950 lbs.!  The Skylark’s V-Nose front profile and air conditioner placement are among the construction and design enhancements, that allows it to cut through wind and dramatically reduce drag.  They’ve also placed the air conditioner on the floorline instead of the roofline, the center of gravity is lowered,  which allows for a single-axle system for less weight and improved performance.

Some of the standard features you’ll find on the Skylark, that you won’t find on other conventionally built travel trailers includes  LED lighting throughout the unit. LED lights consume less than one-quarter the electricity than conventional lights, plus they last about 10 times as long! You’ll also find  double-paned acrylic tinted windows and Azdel Super Lite Substrate in all lamination. The inclusion of these features should provide customers good resale values down the road.

There’s also much to like when it comes to the Skylark’s styling, which combines contemporary with European touches, that we think makes for a very attractive package. Specifically, you’ll find light-weight Concord cherry cabinetry with brushed nickel hardware and a unique stainless steel sink with integrated faucet and cover that give a sleek and sophisticated look.

Other great features worth mentioning are the linoleum flooring throughout, a jack-knife aluminum framed sofa, 2-burner stainless steel cook top (with integrated cover),  and a 48×76-inch high-density foam mattress bed that lifts up easily on struts and has extra storage beneath.

As is the case with all Jayco products, the Skylark is Green Certified by TRA Certification Inc, an independent third-party certification agency. The Skylark itself earned an Emerald Certification, which is the highest distinction available. This high rating was earned through the use of sustainable materials, environmentally friendly production methods, energy-efficient components and reduction of waste.

Until next time.. Happy RVing!

  1. It depends on the floor plan. On the 21FKV , they have the kitchen in the “V” area; and on the 21FBV, the bathroom is upfront. In both cases, it gives you more living space throughout the rest of the unit.
