MIDDLEBURY, IN. — Spacious, upscale and value are just a few words that describe the 2014 Jayco Melbourne Class C motorhome. It is a spacious, upscale motorhome that offers luxury on a smaller scale, without compromising convenience. This compact Class C motorhome is packed with standard features, luxurious visual appeal and doesn’t compromise on convenience. And now standard with the Jayco exclusive JRide™ ride and handling system, it delivers a smoother ride than ever before.

Ranging in length from over 28-feet to over 31-feet and offering 3 floorplan options that sleep up to 4 people, the Melbourne provides the comforts of home with grand 78-inch ceiling height living areas and practical, convenient standard features. The sleek interior includes amenities such as a high quality Denver mattress with padded headboard and quilted bedspread, halogen reading lights, and a 22-inch digital LED HDTV in the bedroom. In the kitchen, the Melbourne flaunts an 8-cu. ft. refrigerator, a Dream Dinette mechanism which allows for varied tabletop heights, convection microwave with 3-burner cooktop and range hood, and residential linoleum flooring.

New for the 2014 Melbourne is the standard Jayco exclusive JRide™ ride and handling system, which features state-of-the-art shocks and suspension systems designed to make the Melbourne the best handling, smoothest riding Class C motorhome available. Also new for 2014 is a Jewel décor option, new stylish slideout fascia, a redesigned front entertainment center, a residential style electric powered sofa (select models), and linoleum in the living area in lieu of carpet. Exterior enhancements include new, frameless windows along with LED awning lights with separate on/off switch.

The focus on the ride doesn’t stop with the JRide™ package. The cab standards consist of 3-point lap and shoulder safety belts, auxiliary start switch, and Optima leather driver seat with 6-way power. Other standards include a remote keyless entry, Diamond shield paint protection film, an electric-powered double entrance step, heavy-duty grab handle for entry assistance, house battery, lockable exterior storage compartments with door pulls, and slideout topper awnings. Designed for power and convenience, the Ford E-450 chassis provides the Melbourne with a 5-speed automatic Torqshift series transmission with overdrive, offering powerful movement. The 55-gal. fuel tank, 130-amp alternator, and 5,000-lb. rated hitch with 7-way plug, make traveling a relaxing and effortless experience.

The Customer Value Package includes a touch-screen premium in-dash sound system with AM/FM/CD/DVD and built-in GPS, back-up and side-view cameras and monitor, deluxe remote-control heated side-view mirrors, 12 volt electric awning with LED lights, portable outside gas grill, tankless water heater, and a 15,000-BTU air conditioner with heat pump. The Melbourne simply offers all the luxuries of home-away-from-home.

These top-quality materials, paired with the latest-construction advancements, allow Jayco to back the Melbourne with an industry-leading, 2-year Co-Pilot Limited Warranty — the most comprehensive warranty in the industry. This no-strings attached warranty is not an extended dealer warranty; it's a manufacturer's warranty that comes from the people who build Jayco RVs. Each Jayco is warranted to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship. It's one of the many ways Jayco provides peace of mind (and more fun) to its customers.
