Generations of Family Fun

Starts with Peace of Mind

At Jayco, we build our RVs to handle every adventure, which is why we can offer an industry-leading 2-year limited warranty. Our dedicated production team includes Amish craftsmen who build with well-honed woodworking skills passed down for generations. We make sure we take the extra steps to build high quality products that are durable and use the most advanced construction techniques.

 

WE START WITH ONE OF THE INDUSTRY'S

STRONGEST FOUNDATIONS

Jayco builds on custom-sized frames, designed specifically for each floorplan. Other manufacturers use stock frames, stretching and welding the frame to fit.

construction
Magnum Roof System
  • 4 1/2" crowned wood trusses: Uses 2"x 2" vertical studs to maximize load capacity, while oversized nail plates provide a tighter design
  • 3/8" roof decking, screwed down at every seam: More durable than typical stapled construction, provides fully walkable roof
  • Residential attic-style insulation: Maintains interior temperatures
  • One-piece, sidewall-wrapped Alpha Ply material: Provides leak protection
Additional Features
  • Dexter Nev-R-Adjust brakes: Adjusts continuously in forward motion, getting half the stopping distance compared to other brakes
  • WaterWorks system: Boasts 75-plus gallons of fresh water and Pex water lines, built to weather the elements
Wall Construction
  • TuffShell vacuum-bonded sidewalls, slideouts and back wall: Involves 15-18 minutes of 144 tons of pressure to ensure a stronger bond
  • Smooth fiberglass exterior: Withstands use and travel—and Mother Nature, too
  • Welded aluminum frames: Lighter than wood, increases Eagle’s towability
Floor Construction
  • 5/8" tongue-and-groove plywood on 2" x 3" wooden floor joists on 16” centers: More moisture resistant, plywood holds up to the elements
  • Full-width outriggers: Supports wall weight with 4-foot spacing (vs. 8-foot spacing) and wall-to-wall, full-width design
Front Cap Construction
  • Double layer of front cap fiberglass insulation: Helps maintain interior temperatures
Bedroom Floor Construction
  • Bedroom floor Flexfoil and fiberglass insulation: Maintains interior temperatures in the bedroom

At Jayco, we've built a reputation for superior construction and quality craftsmanship. We pride ourselves on always using top-quality materials and innovative manufacturing techniques. That commitment has led to our latest construction advancement, the Jayco Magnum Truss Roof System, 50 percent stronger than other roofs in the industry, built to outlast everything but your memories.

Screwed Construction

We screw down 3/8" roof decking at each seam, which creates a more firmly secured structure and reduces the chance of fasteners coming loose and puncturing the rubber roof material.

Stapled Construction

Competitors staple their decking, which is not as strong or as reliable as screwed construction.

Oversized Nail Plates

Jayco uses oversized nail plate joint fasteners on both sides of the trusses, making for a much tighter truss with less chance of movement.

Smaller Nail Plates

Competitors use smaller nail plates, and in most areas, only use them on one side of the truss, increasing the likelihood the roof will flex.

2 x 2 Vertical Wood Studs

The Magnum Roof System uses 2 x 2 vertical studs, strategically placed to maximize load capacity. Nail plates also are used on both sides of the vertical stud to further enhance strength.

1" Aluminum Piece

Competitors use a 1" piece of aluminum as their vertical support, which provides less strength in important areas.

Safer Wiring

The 2 x 2 vertical studs provide smoother edges along which to run wiring, greatly reducing the risk of electrical shorts.

Less Safe Wiring

With the 1" aluminum piece and its sharp edges, our competitors' roofs are more likely to have electrical shorts.

7" Header Beam

Between the roof and slideout openings, we use 7" header beams, a more acceptable material used in home construction for load-bearing beams.

2 x 6 Lumber

Competitors use a 2 x 6 piece of lumber, which creates a weaker 5 1/2" beam.

4,500 lbs. on a Jayco Roof

The Magnum Truss Roof System withstood 4,500 lbs., showing that Jayco's exclusive roof construction can hold a 50 percent heavier load than the competition. This strength translates into durability and is a result of superior quality construction.

 

Climate-Shield.jpg

Extend your camping season with the Jayco Climate Shield — the ultimate in weather protection. Designed for efficient heating and cooling, Climate Shield protects against extreme heat and extreme freezing — even when temperatures hit a high of 100° F or a low of 0° F.

Dometic Climate Control

Dometic Climate Control
Jayco took five of its toughest towables to Dometic, the nation's premier climate control facility, where independent technicians put the Jayco Climate Shield to the test against extreme temperatures.

Independent Heat Testing

Independent Heat Testing
Each unit was subjected to 100° F heat for an 8-hour period. During that time, sensors were placed throughout the coach to measure the unit’s average temperature. The result—the Jayco Climate Shield maintained a comfortable temperature of 71° F.

Independent Cold Testing

Independent Cold Testing
Each unit was then subjected to 0° F temperatures for an 8-hour period. Temperatures dropped so low the tires frosted over, yet inside the coach, plumbing remained fully functional. When the test was complete, the same temperature sensors found that the Jayco Climate Shield maintained a cozy temperature of 68° F.

Water Tank Testing

Water Tank Testing
Following cold testing, technicians emptied the holding tanks to check for any final freezing. Thanks to a fully enclosed underbelly with forced air and radiant heat, the Jayco Climate Shield held up to temperatures as low as 0° F (-17°C).
