Jayco Motorhomes Offer Smooth Ride and Handling with JRide®

Here at Jayco, we know the journey is as important as the destination, which is why we’re pleased to offer our exclusive JRide, JRide Plus and JRide Premium – a Jayco exclusive Ride and Handling package designed to deliver the ultimate RV driving experience.

These packages, available on the Redhawk, Greyhawk, Greyhawk Prestige, Seneca, Alante, and Precept, offer a powerful blend of precise handling and renowned stability, and pack our Jayco motorhomes with a number of high-end features that smooth out the ride, including:

  • Shock Absorbers: Reacting to bumps and holes in the road and eliminating excessive sway and bouncing is key in providing you a smoother ride and handling experience, which is why we add shock absorbers to each of our motorhomes (excluding the Redhawk). On the Greyhawk and Greyhawk Prestige, we include Bilstein shocks and on the Seneca, Alante and Precept we add Sachs shock absorbers – both providing ultimate performance.
  • Hellwig helper springs: Standard on Redhawk, Greyhawk and Greyhawk Prestige, Hellwig helper springs deliver a rigid ride, preventing the chassis from sagging under weight. Self-regulating, these springs are easier to maintain than airbag suspension.
  • Rubber-isolation mounts: Redhawk, Greyhawk and Greyhawk Prestige are equipped with rubber isolation pucks positioned near the tires to absorb road shock. These pucks, which you won’t find on other Class Cs, function like cartilage in your body, keeping objects from rubbing against each other. Allowing for a certain amount of movement, rubber-isolation mounts minimize the transmission of noise and small vibrations throughout your RV.
  • Variable-rate jounce bumpers: A standard feature on the Alante and Precept, jounce bumpers add to the smooth ride.

These JRide packages also delivers precise handling because, at Jayco, we don’t believe powering through corners should be a thrill reserved only for car enthusiasts. Thanks to added stabilizer bars and a balanced driveshaft, every corner beckons. Here’s more about the features:

  • Stabilizer bar(s): Unlike other motorhomes, Jayco adds a stabilizer bar to the front and rear of the Redhawk and Alante, to the front of Greyhawk and Greyhawk Prestige and to the rear of the Precept. Also, a heavy-duty stabilizer bar is added to the front of the Precept and the rear of the Greyhawk, Greyhawk Prestige and Seneca. Connecting opposite wheels together through short lever arms linked by a torsion spring, a stabilizer bar raises and lowers each side of the unit to similar heights, reducing sideways tilting when cornering.
  • Computer balanced driveshaft: Every Jayco motorhome driveshaft is balanced on the line to eliminate shudder.

The Seneca is also equipped with two standard features that complete the JRide Premium package – the full air brakes and rear air suspension.

In short, the JRide package delivers the most-advanced motorized ride. Don’t believe us? Take one for a spin at your local Jayco dealer.
