Jayco: Built on Principles of Family and Quality
is an RV company built on foundations of family and an abiding appreciation for the outdoors. In 1968, Lloyd Bontrager set out to create the perfect family-friendly RV. Starting out in a pair of barns on his property, he brought Amish craftsmanship to the task and committed Jayco to combining old world quality with the newest technology and latest advancements in construction. The first RV to come out of the Bontrager barns was a fold-down camper that featured a newly invented lifter system, a system that was then patented and is still in use today. By the end of 1968, Lloyd Bontrager’s little company of 15 employees had produced and sold 132 of those newly designed fold-down camping trailers.
More than four decades later, Jayco still believes in family-focused outdoor adventures, and are committed to creating the best RVs to meet the needs of all ages. At their rural factory in Middlebury, Indiana, they still bring the best Amish craftsmanship to the task, combining timeless woodworking skills with innovations like their Jayco Magnum Truss Roof System, which makes Jayco roofs 50% stronger than those on many RVs in their class. By staying true to Lloyd Bontrager’s dream, Jayco has become one of the biggest names in RV manufacturing today.

, with that patented lifting system, are still family favorites. Jayco travel trailers
are the top selling models in the United States. Jayco fifth wheels
have earned a reputation as some of the best on the road, particularly in the lighter weight categories. And of course Jayco toy haulers

Jayco EcoAdvantage: A Commitment to Protecting the Environment
Jayco believes in sustainability. Through their Jayco EcoAdvantage
program, they work hard to build the best RVs using fewer resources and making sure to use renewable natural resources instead of depleting our most beautiful landscapes of the very qualities that make them so special to us. That’s why they work with suppliers to reduce their packaging, and have upgraded their factory to be more energy efficient, and use more sustainable and recyclable materials in their RVs. Through smart sustainability efforts, they have reduced their energy consumption by 40%, have reduces the fresh water use and now recycle water. In 2013, they saved enough landfill space to accommodate a year’s waste from more than 40,000 people, but they haven’t reached their goal yet; they want to be landfill free by 2015. And they have developed ways to reduce the overall weight of their RVs by 30%, which not only saves resources in building, but improves your tow car mileage
and saves you money in gas. Jayco wants to build a better RV and do a better job of protecting the plane at the same time, so that every generation has a beautiful place to camp.
