What a Warranty Says About an RV

If you’re about ready to purchase a new RV, visions of campfires, gooey smores, colorful sunsets and quality time with friends and family are probably already swirling through your head. It’s understandable how warranty fine print may give way to the anticipation of the maiden voyage in your new RV. Here’s the thing: a warranty is really important.

The completeness, duration and who offers the warranty are direct indicators of the quality of an RV’s construction.

Aside from a handful of components covered directly by suppliers, our RVs are protected by a warranty that comes directly from us, the people who build the RV, and is serviced by our dedicated and expertly trained dealers, not a third party. Each unit is warrantied against defects in material and workmanship to the original purchaser. The Jayco warranty also covers you for 24 months, or 24,000 miles for motorized products, whichever comes first. That’s 730 days, two full camping seasons. No matter how you slice it, it’s coverage that lasts twice as long as the industry standard. Don’t worry, our camping trailers have serious coverage too—five-year warranties on their most critical components.

How can we go to such great lengths to give RVers peace of mind? Roofs that withstand up to 4,500 pounds, laminated walls bonded for 16 minutes at 144 tons of pressure, integrated A-framed trailers, the expert craftsmen in our plants and the know-how of our dealers: reasons like these, and too many others to list here, give us the confidence to offer our customers the protection we do.

There’s another, more subtle, message behind having a warranty that’s twice as long as the competition’s. It provides our engineers more visibility to which features owners are using most, how they’re performing in real-world situations and opportunities for improvement. Loyal Jayco customers have grown accustomed to it and shoppers can rest assured that this data is taken into account with each and every new model year.

There’s a reason you see our warranty front and center, everywhere from our website to our product literature: because it’s the best. Go ahead and compare it with other manufacturers’. We think what you’ll find speaks volumes, too.
