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. Now the Seneca has an updated Customer Value Package that will include a motion satellite dish, navigation system and 15,000 BTU A/C with heat pump. A fireplace, sofa set and thermal pane windows now all come standard with the 2013 Jayco Seneca.

Are Fuel Related Loyalty Programs for RVers a thing of the Past?

We came across something that full-time RV Drivers in Nichols, NY will find very interesting at the very least. Who doesn’t look for every opportunity these days  to put some money back in their pockets or to keep some in there. We were beginning to think that the Driver Loyalty programs at some of the big Nationwide fuel stops was a thing of the past. They seem to be dwindling year by year. Then there was Flying J. They’ve rolled out with a new program specific to professional drivers and RVers and this is great news considering that the biggest cost of traveling is in direct relation to fuel consumption. Here are some details, and we are hoping that some other large national chains follow suit.

 

Pilot Flying J is launching Frequent Fueler Advantage, an enhanced loyalty program on Jan. 3 for professional drivers and RV customers.

Frequent Fueler Advantage will allow professional drivers to instantly accrue and redeem loyalty points in all participating Pilot and Flying J travel centers, travel plazas and restaurants across the U.S. and Canada. Added benefits of the new program for professional drivers include extended shower expiration for loyal customers, shower credits for expeditors and in-store rewards. RV cardholders in the program will receive instant discounts on fuel, propane purchases and dumping fees. Coming soon, RV cardholders will receive discounts at the truck diesel islands in addition to the specified RV fueling lanes.

Pilot Flying J will also offer Pump Start to all Frequent Fueler Advantage cardholders. Pump Start will allow drivers paying with cash, a check or a third-party credit card to use their Frequent Fueler Advantage card to start the fuel pumps. Members must register their card at the cashier counter and must have 500 gallons of purchase history in order to activate the Pump Start feature.

Pilot Flying J will continue to honor points accumulated on the Frequent Fueler, RV Real Value Card and Driver Payback cards. Pilot Flying J is asking that drivers register these cards under the new program in order to take full advantage of all benefits.

“By registering for the Frequent Fueler Advantage, our customers will be able to instantly access enhanced benefits,” said Pilot Flying J President and CEO Jimmy Haslam. “In addition, Pilot Flying J will be able to better serve our customers by designing benefits that more closely match their needs and wants.”

Drivers may register their cards at www.FrequentFuelerAdvantage.com or at cashier desks and kiosks in Pilot and Flying J locations.

We searched deep and wide online for more such offers and had no such luck in locating one. If anyone else is aware of any other fuel discount or savings programs, please do share in the comments section. It would be great if we could point our fellow full-time RVers to the best and most economical fuel distributors which can really pad your pockets with a little extra spending money during your RV road trips. I’m sure this would help make your trips a little more memorable.

Take your camper for a float on the water?

 

If you try to back your trailer into a lake, chances are that it will flood, ruin everything inside, and eventually sink to the bottom. Well, one German company has designed a new RV trailer that will get to the lake, and then get on it. If you are an RVer that likes to go to lake side destinations, then this is an idea that you wish were thought of long ago. Back in the fifties, the idea of amphibious cars that could drive into the water and then flow through the water was a novel idea that died out. Well, this retro thinking camper is here to bring it back.

It is called the Sealander, and it is a towable that allows you to fall asleep to the slow rocking waves. Consumer Reports has more on this water bound sleeper.

This little vessel is small and light enough to be towed by any modestly-powered CUV and features a fully-configurable interior. Inside, there’s space for a four-person table, a kitchenette and a sleeping area, and there’s even space outside for a deck. Why would you want a deck on your tiny camper? Because you’ll need somewhere to stand when you take to the open seas in your home away from home. As its name suggests, the Sealander is completely amphibious. All you have to do is strap on the pint-sized motor and avoid any small craft warnings.

Unfortunately, this camper is only available in Europe for the time being, but if the idea proves to be a popular option, you can be sure that US manufacturers may take notice. Until then, you can find a great camper to stay on the shore at Jim’s RV.
