Jayco Adventurer: Not a house, it’s a home

Peter Quilty — 13 April 2017

Jayco has taken the bull by the horns with the Adventurer, and purpose-built it for exploring rugged conditions and equipped it for extended travel. In the past, the closest Jayco has ventured into the offroad market is by offering a rough-road Outback upgrade to some models.

“We had not entered this market in the past, but have successfully built semi-offroad units (Outback) for many years.” Jayco sales manager Scott Jones said. “We wanted to have the product right prior to launching and we believe our new offroad unit will be exactly what the market needs as it’s full of features, highly capable and great value.”

Jayco’s top line ethos with the Adventurer will certainly appeal to the discerning caravanner who wants to tackle the rough stuff in true comfort and style.

You could take this van to faraway places and stay there for days, courtesy of its capacious battery (2x100Ah), solar (2x150W) and water (3x82L fresh; 1x75L grey) storage, while the exterior shower, slide-out stainless steel kitchen with provision for a Weber, plus an entertainment unit make life outside more fun and comfortable. It comprises a 6in hot-dipped galvanised chassis and fully redeveloped JTECH suspension, which is the product of two years’ new research and development at Jayco’s Melbourne headquarters.
