There are many ways in which we can all help to protect and keep the planet and environment clean. We all have to share this earth with one another, so it’s important that we all pitch in to help. We have all heard of several ways in which we can do our part such as recycling, reducing our waste and driving less. Jayco also wants to do their part to help the planet, and so they have launched a long-term sustainability initiative program.

Jayco’s sustainability program is called EcoAdvantage, and it is their way of insuring that their products and processes have a minimal negative impact on the environment. The program is focused on better ways of building better RV’s that use fewer natural resources. There are seven goals that Jayco has set forth to achieve through their initiative.

1. Landfill free by 2015 – Jayco has moved recycling bins around, educated their employees and worked with their suppliers to help reduce packaging.
2. Reduce freshwater use – Jayco plans to use water runoff for their operations. Their goal is to use rainwater in three of their major production facilities by the spring of 2013.
3. Use more sustainable materials – Materials will be re-used, packaging improved and plans with suppliers will be made for the use of more sustainable parts.
4. Use less energy – Jayco has a goal of using 40% less energy by 2014 by upgrading facilities and production processes.
5. Promote Green Efforts – Try to involve RV owners, suppliers and competitors in the process of improving the environment.
6. Streamline – Jayco will streamline their processes to help reduce energy use, increase efficiency and limit waste.
7. Reduce Product Weight – Jayco has committed to reducing the weight of their products to help their customers achieve better fuel efficiency in turn leaving less of a footprint on the planet.

Recently, at the Family Motor Coach Association’s (FMCA) 87th Family Reunion and Motorhome Showcase in Indianapolis, Jayco introduced a new model in their lineup of Class C motorhomes. So if you are looking to move from the towing market and into an affordable, well-made motorhome New York, look no further.

Jayco steps back into the entry-level motorhome market with the all-new Redhawk. Jim Jacobs, president of Jayco’s motorized group stated, “This was a product, a segment that Jayco had not participated in for several years… One of the ways we were able to control our costs was we standardized. There are very few options. Feature wise, the RedHawk has everything in it that you would expect in a much higher-priced segment.” The Jayco Redhawk offers three floor plans from 26 feet to 32 feet long and 84-inch ceilings. This new motorhome comes standard with a booth dinette, 3-burner range, 8-cubic foot refrigerator and microwave. Also included in the standard features are a back-up camera, 32-inch LCD TV’s and under bed storage. The Jayco Redhawk also offers extra storage featuring exterior storage compartments and an electric slideout giving you more room on the interior.

Power is one thing the Jayco Redhawk is not lacking in. This motorhome is built on a Ford E-450 Triton chassis which comes equipped with a 6.8-liter, V10, 305 horsepower engine. This body style also includes a 130-amp alternator, 5,000-pound hitch, 55-gallon fuel tank and Hellwig helper springs. The Jayco Redhawk motorhome also features a front fiberglass cap making the exterior more aerodynamic which helps reduce drag and increase gas mileage.

The all-new 2013 Jayco Redhawk starts at $84,809 and is available through your local New York new and used RV dealer, Jim’s RV. For more information and details you can visit jayco.com or stop by Jim’s RV where our friendly staff will be happy to help and answer any questions.

Nothing ever stays the same New York, and this is also true for some of Jayco’s 2013 model motorhomes. It would be kind of boring if nothing ever changed, and who doesn’t like new features? Jayco has updated the Greyhawk, Melbourne and Seneca series motorhomes for the 2013 models.

Some of the features updated on all the models include:
• Interior décor options, which will include a new Midnight choice.
• The countertops of each model will include solid Chocolate Chip color counter top with a double bowl sink.
• The Greyhawk and Melbourne motorhomes will feature an updated Customer Value Package that will offer a 400-watt inverter, side view cameras and a tankless water heater.
• Increased security and convenience with the addition of a keyless touchpad entry lock system.
• Diamond shield paint protection.

The Greyhawk model which, is built on a Ford E-450 chassis, will also include updates of a larger area of linoleum in the living area, decorative glass on the cabinet doors and a wider entry glass shower door. Its solid, real wood cabinets, Onan generator and electric powered swing-away mirrors will still remain.

The Melbourne also built on a Ford E-450 chassis will maintain its Apollo convection microwave, 3-burner cooktop and leather furniture. However, the motorhome which sleep up to 5 will also now include standard premium paint package, electric awning and a new, lighted battery disconnect switch.

The Seneca motorhome, which sleeps up to 8 and is built on a freightliner M2 chassis, also has some updates in addition to its already Corian countertops, back-up camera and 340 horsepower Cummins diesel engine.
