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

construction
Full-width outriggers

We build on full-width outriggers that are spaced 4-6 feet apart (vs. 8 ft.) to better support the weight of the wall.

Integrated A-frame

Jay Feather SLX uses a cambered box tube frame with integrated A-frame. The A-frame runs through the main frame, preventing the hitch from buckling like competing tack-welded frames.

 

construction
Floor Construction
  • Jay Feather SLX floors feature screwed construction with wood joists.
Wall Construction
  • The walls are vacuum bonded using 15-18 minutes of 144 tons of pressure to ensure a strong bond.
  • Lightweight materials, like welded aluminum frames with metal backers and Jay Feather SLX's innovative, aerodynamic profile, increase towability.
  • Extra-wide corner seals on the entry doors, baggage compartment and window seals prevent leaks.
Roof Construction
  • Our one-piece, sidewall-wrapped DiFlex II material provides the ultimate in leak protection.
Tent Construction
  • Jay Feather SLX’s water-repellent vinyl tent material resists mildew, mold, scratches and cracks, while the double-stitched design adds strength.
  • A reversed-cambered support system creates a durable structure rated to hold 1,100 lbs., while a permanent tent-to-bunk attachment system with channel locks eliminates misplaced poles.
  • The hook tent frame creates more headroom in the bunk area compared to competing tents.

 

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.
