Jayco, known for its travel trailers and Class C motorhomes, is entering the Class A gas motorhome market for the first time with the launch of a new product line called the Precept.
The Precept is built on the Ford F53 chassis with a 6.8L Triton V-10 gas engine with 362-horsepower.
John Ganyard, vice president and general manager of the Jayco Motorhome Group, said the Precept is a response to requests from consumers and dealers for a Jayco gasoline Class A motorhome. He said the Precept “raises the bar for on-road handling and customer appealing features.”
The features include six-way powered driver and passenger seats, a passenger computer workstation, large pass-through storage compartments, hydraulic leveling jacks, an Onan 4,000-watt Micro Quiet generator, and an exterior entertainment center with a built-in 40-inch LED TV. The Precept has LED lighting throughout, day/night solar screens, solid-surface countertops and glazed maple cabinetry. It comes with the JRide system that Jayco says is designed to produce the best handling and smoothest riding gas Class A motorhome on the market.
The Precept is available initially in a 31-foot model that carries a suggested retail price of $110,287. A 29-foot version will be in showrooms soon.
Class C motorhomes are built on chassis that are supplied by automotive manufacturers and come with the cab attached. In Class A motorhomes, the chassis manufacturer does not supply the cab.
