JAYCO® INTRODUCES ENERGY-EFFICIENT 2012 SKYLARK
Jayco’s new Super Lite Weight Travel Trailer is State-of-the-Art
MIDDLEBURY, Ind. – The Skylark is Jayco’s most energy-efficient travel trailer. Thirty percent lighter in weight than a conventionally built travel trailer of the same length, the 2012 Skylark combines aerodynamic design, advanced green technology and European-inspired styling into a light-weight package that’s towable by 75 percent of all cars, trucks and SUVs. Designed for minimal environmental impact and maximum comfort, the Skylark takes Jayco’s legendary liveability to a new level of performance and economy.
Measuring 22 feet long and weighing only 2,950 lbs., the Skylark was designed for improved towability. The Skylkark’s V-Nose front profile and air conditioner placement are among the construction and design enhancements, which provide the ability to cut through wind and dramatically reduce drag. By placing the air conditioner on the floorline instead of the roofline, the center of gravity is lowered, thus allowing a single axle system for less weight and improved performance.
Contemporary style mixed with European features can be seen throughout the 2012 Jayco Skylark, providing a futuristic feel. The Euro-style double-pane acrylic tinted windows, light-weight Concord Cherry cabinetry with brushed nickel hardware and a unique stainless steel sink with integrated faucet and cover complete the sleek and sophisticated look. Other interior features include a high-intensity 12V LED lighting package, linoleum flooring throughout, jack-knife aluminum framed sofa, 2-burner stainless steel cook top with integrated cover and a 48” x 76” high-density foam mattress bed that lifts up easily on struts with extra storage beneath.
In addition to its light-weight construction and contemporary euro-styling, the 2012 Skylark is “greener” than other conventionally built travel trailers of its size by offering standard features higher in energy efficiency. Green technology such as LED lighting systems throughout help consume less than one-fourth the electricity that conventional lighting consumes, and lamps last about 10 times as long. Double-paned acrylic tinted windows, Azdel™ Super Lite Substrate in all lamination and various other “sustainable technology” techniques help keep the Skylark energy efficient and are features that provide customers reliable resale values.
