RV maker Jayco to debut new gas-powered Class A motorhomes

http://rvnewsservice.com/2013/04/22/...-c-motorhomes/


Middlebury, IN — April 22, 2013 — Jayco has announced that it will enter the gasoline-powered Class A motorhome market with a product line called Precept. The Class A motorhome will initially be available in two models, 29 ft. and 31 ft., and will be sold through authorized Jayco motorhome dealers worldwide.
“The new Precept motorhome raises the bar for on-road handling and customer appealing features,” said John Ganyard, vice president and general manager of the Jayco Motorhome Group in a news release. “We have received numerous requests from both consumers and dealers about the need for a Jayco gasoline Class A motorhome.”
The Precept will come with six-way powered driver and passenger seats, ergonomically-designed ****pit dash with burl wood accents and passenger computer work station, large pass-through exterior storage compartments, hydraulic leveling jacks, an Onan 4,000-watt Micro Quiet generator, and an exterior entertainment center with built-in 40-inch LED TV. In addition, the Precept features Jayco’s exclusive JRide ride and handling system, with its state-of-the-art shocks and suspensions to improve handling and a smooth ride.
The motorhome features tastefully decorated expansive interior layouts as well as high-end amenities that provide the comforts of home. Standard features include LED lighting throughout; spacious bathrooms with extra-large showers; day and night solar screens in the living room, bathroom and bedroom; solid-surface countertops and Washington Glazed Maple residential cabinetry. Built on the Ford F53, 18K chassis, the Precept includes a powerful 6.8L Triton V-10 engine with five-speed TorqShift automatic overdrive transmission.

With the slide outs in will you be able to get up and walk to the bathroom?

Just curious but why would someone want the 6.8 gas motor over the power stroke diesel? The 6.8 is a good motor but the power stroke just suits so much better.

That is an easy one for me. For the mileage I put on my RV it would take decades to pay me back.

There will be room, just not a lot. We have the same thing with our 35GS (3 slide) SENECA, I can carry laundry basket length wise through the opening.

The "market" is asking for a JAYCO gas "A", besides the noise level would probably be too high since you are sitting on top of the engine.

But when you look at the overall cost of a class A, an extra $5K to $10K for a better engine isn't that much.

When you ask what is the best tow vehicle everyone will say a full size pickup even if it cost thousands more in fuel over the year(s). Why settle on something like a premium motorhome?
