Jayco, with its bestselling Jayco Jay Flight travel trailers, is one of the biggest names in RV manufacturing. Jayco produces the top-selling travel trailer in the U.S., along with dozens of varied models available in its numerous travel trailer series. Jayco fifth wheels and motorhomes have a reputation for being some of the highest quality and lightest weight units available on the market. They also manufacture toy haulers and folding campers. The company continually improves its product line, and the Jayco Jay Flight Swift (sometimes referred to as the Jayco Swift) is a more compact, affordable and lighter weight version of the family favorite: the Jayco Jay Flight.
Founded in 1968, the first Jayco was designed and built in a pair of barns by Lloyd J. Bontrager. More than 40 years later, Bontrager’s dream to build a better, family-friendly RV lives on. At the Jayco factory in Middlebury, Indiana, Amish craftspeople combine generations of woodworking technique with modern technology. The company strives to continually innovate better features for their products and the latest addition to their construction technique is the Jayco Magnum Truss Roof System. This innovative system makes Jayco roofs 50 percent stronger than the roofs on competing RVs and ensures that your Jayco will last for years.
The Jayco EcoAdvantage is Jayco’s sustainability effort. Through efforts to reduce waste, reuse materials, utilize renewable resources and more, Jayco works to manufacture its products in a sustainable manner. They work with suppliers to reduce packaging, they’ve upgraded their factory to energy-efficient systems, and they hope to be landfill free by 2015. Over the past several years, they have been developing ways to reduce the weight of Jayco RVs by up to 30%, which improves your tow car mileage and saves you money at the pump.
