We’ve built a reputation for superior construction, craftsmanship, top-quality materials and innovative manufacturing techniques. The result? Unmatched resale value and peace of mind in an RV that’s built to handle whatever the road throws at it, while outlasting everything but your memories.


Our tent material is double-stitched in our own factory and backed by a 5-year warranty, is built to resist mildew, mold, scratches and cracks. Permanently attached to 1,050-lb. rated bunk ends, our tent is built to weather the elements.

When you hear Jayco, you hear quality. That is why all Jayco tent campers are backed with five lifetime component warranties, a 5-year tent warranty and an industry-leading 2-year warranty. Simply put, you can camp without having to worry about your Jayco.
