The Melbourne is Well-Appointed, Classy and Easy-to-Maneuver

MIDDLEBURY, Ind. —Jayco’s newest motorhome, the Melbourne, is an upscale motorhome designed in a compact style for the traveler that wishes to easily drive through any terrain – from large cities to winding mountain passes.

With its stylish looks, nimble handling and liveability, the Melbourne is the perfect fit for the adventurous cross-country duo who demands the comfort of a Class A motorhome in a smaller, more manageable size. There are a variety of floorplan layouts, ranging in length from 26 to 31 feet.

“The Melbourne is unique because it offers all of the amenities of home – residential-style bathroom and kitchen, entertainment center and comfortable furniture, but it’s so compact and nimble that you can take it anywhere,” said Sid Johnson, marketing director for Jayco. “Since its debut last year, the Melbourne has been a top-seller because people love its combination of handling and liveability.”

Thanks to its functional and flexible living space, the Melbourne’s contemporary interior feels like home. The living and kitchen areas boast special touches like a leather comfort lounger, Northridge Maple cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting, Half-Time™ convection microwave and water filter.

The Melbourne’s upscale residential features extend into the bedroom and bathroom, and include a specially-designed bedding package, halogen reading lights, bathroom skylight, glass shower door and porcelain toilet.

Several additional features are available on the Melbourne, including the Customer Value Package that showcases a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound system with DVD, back up camera with monitor and alarm, wood dash kit, night shades, outside grill, remote control and heated mirrors, bathroom power vent, exterior entertainment center and attic fan.
