Seneca HD and ZX Are Tops Among Heavy-Duty Class C Motorhomes

The Seneca motorhome by Jayco®, America’s Most Liveable RVs, offers the luxury of a Class A with the price tag and maneuverability of a Class C.

Ranging in size from a 34’5” single slide to a 36’7” triple slide, the Seneca HD is available in four floorplan designs. The Seneca ZX toy hauler motorhome model is 35’6” in length with a single slide with 120” x 97” interior cargo dimensions and with 91-1/4” x 72” cargo door dimensions.

All Seneca models are constructed on a 22,000-pound Chevy™ Kodiak® chassis for maximum cargo carrying capacity. It sports a Duramax® V8 turbo diesel engine with 5-speed Allison® 1000 Series transmission with overdrive, 150-amp alternator and 1000-watt engine block heater, along with a 53-degree turning radius to provide easy drivability.

The interior affords a high level of luxury and comfort. Standard features include North Ridge Maple cabinetry, oil rubbed bronze cabinet hardware, leather sofa, J-stone™ solid surface countertops, radius-cornered kitchen counter tops, six-inch deeper overhead cabinets over sofa and under bed storage. A front over cab entertainment center with 27-inch flat screen TV and a premium AM/FM/CD stereo system are also standard equipment.

The Seneca HD comes with a host of upscale “must have” equipment, including remote keyless entry, one-piece polyethylene pass-through storage compartments, Class A motorhome-style baggage doors, hydraulic leveling jacks, Onan® 5,500-watt quiet diesel generator with auto-changeover and the 12-volt Eclipse™ electric patio awning from Carefree® of Colorado. Safety features include power anti-lock brakes with power steering, deluxe heated remote-control side view mirrors, electronic exhaust restrictor and three-point lap and shoulder safety belts.

The Seneca ZX offers plenty of storage room for toys and the creature comforts of home, including a large 8-cu. ft. refrigerator, range, and microwave; raised panel cabinets and residential-style doors; decorator fabrics and interior appointments. The front cab features remote keyless entry, fully adjustable recliner seats and AM/FM/CD stereo.

The industrial-strength power lift tailgate on the Seneca ZX has a capacity of up to 2,500 lbs., making it simple to load your motorcycles or ATVs from the ground to the garage in a matter of seconds. And the garage is lockable to keep equipment secure at all times.

The Customer Value Package for both models features a back-up camera and monitor, plus other customer-oriented items for enhanced RVing enjoyment, such as an exterior entertainment center and portable outside gas grill with carrying case. Also included is a Dolby® Digital 5.1 home theater system with a surround sound system to provide premium sound.
