This dedication to excellence has never been more evident than it is today with their new Class A Precept gas motorhome. Not only have they packed the Precept with high-end features at an affordable price, but you’ll also find the many little touches, that Jayco is known for, that make Jayco RVs so enjoyable for your travels.

In addition to the luxurious surroundings, you’ll find that the Precept is built with the power and precision found in all of their motorhomes.

“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!

Catching up with Jayco


So, what’s the story behind “America’s Most Liveable RVs”?

Founded in 1968 by Lloyd and Bertha Bontrager, Jayco was born on a small farm in Middlebury, Indiana, with a vision of building a better RV and creating a company where everyone would be treated as “family”.

Innovation from the very beginning.

Mr. Bontrager’s very first prototype camping trailer included a unique lift system that is patented and still in use today. More than 40 years later,  innovation continues to thrive at Jayco, evidenced by last week’s announcement that they had become the first major RV manufacturer to become 100% green certified.

Jayco in 2010

Today, led by Lloyd Bontrager’s son Derald, Jayco is the largest privately owned RV manufacturer in North America, with almost 2000 employees, and countless Jayco RVs on the road and in campgrounds. Even with all of this success, they’ve  still been able to maintain a very strong family atmosphere. So much so, that as a Jayco dealer, we feel very much part of the Jayco family, and are often contributing ideas to product development based on our own experiences and those shared by our customers.

Come see for yourself.

If you’re ever in the Middlebury, IN area, be sure to stop by the Jayco Visitors Center. Situated in a renovated 1880s barn, the Visitors Center is adjacent to the general Jayco offices and houses Jayco memorabilia and merchandise.

You’ll also have an opporunity to walk through a display of new products, and take a free tour of their towable manufacturing facility. These factory tours are normally conducted Monday through Thursday at 12 p.m.  Tours of the motorized facilities are  by appointment only.  Be sure to call ahead at 574-825-5861 for the most current tour information.

Can’t make it in person?

Don’t worry. Here’s a short video showing how the Jayco RVs are built. Notice that they make just about everything themselves, including the cabinetry and furniture!
