Built to the highest environmental standards, the 2012 Jayco Skylark weighs 30 percent less than conventionally-built travel trailers 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. Developed for minimal environmental impact and maximum comfort, the Skylark takes Jayco’s legendary quality to a new level of performance and economy.
Measuring 18 to 22 feet long, depending on model, and weighing less than 3,000 lbs., the Skylark was designed for improved towability. The Skylark’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 floor line instead of the roofline, the center of gravity is lowered, thus allowing a single-axle system for reduced 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 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. 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.
All Jayco products have been Green Certified by TRA Certification, Inc, an independent third party certification agency. The Skylark earned an Emerald Certification, which is the highest distinction available. This high rating was earned through the use of sustainable materials, environmentally-friendly production methods, energy-efficient components and reduction of waste.
