Ride and handling. Defined.

We don’t just build motorhomes at Jayco. We engineer the ultimate driving experience — JRide and JRide Plus — a
powerful blend of precise handling and renowned stability.
Hands down, it’s the best ride.

Put a little extra spring in your drive.

At Jayco, we equip our motorhomes with Hellwig helper springs. These springs work with the chassis’ existing springs to give the RV more support, improving sway control under heavy loads. And when your gross vehicle weight rating changes, these Load Pro springs self regulate, making them easier to maintain than an airbag suspension system.

Available in: JRide and JRide Plus

A

Hellwig is the most recognized name in helper springs.
Few Class C competitors equip their motorhomes with them.

B

Fluctuating loads impact alignment, reduce traction and diminish handling. Hellwig helper springs correct this, compressing under loads to level out your RV.

Take the bounce out of the road.

Jayco motorhomes are equipped with a total of 16 rubber isolation pucks, positioned near the tires to absorb road shock. These mounts, not available on competing products, create an interface between metal components, helping to dampen noise and minimize vibrations throughout your Jayco motorhome.

Every corner will beckon.

You won’t find these high-end shock absorbers on any other Class C. Featuring a unique piston system that reacts to the road, Bilstein shocks eliminate excessive sway when cornering. On Precept’s Class A Ford F53 chassis, Bilstein shocks are standard equipment for an extraordinary ride.

Available in: JRide Plus

A

Bilstein shock absorbers feature a unique monotube gas-pressure design. Unlike twin-tube designs, Bilstein’s single tube won’t trap heat, decreasing shock failure.

B

The Bilstein piston has 228% larger surface area than conventional twin-tube pistons, offering greater control for the ultimate in handling.

Setting the bar in handling.

Unlike other Class Cs, Jayco adds a sway bar. Connecting opposite wheels together, a sway bar raises and lowers each side of the unit to similar heights, reducing sideways tilting when cornering. On Precept, we added a second stabilizing bar to the Ford F53 chassis. Other Class As are equipped with just one bar.

A

A sway bar also eliminates excessive sway on bumpy roads,
raising and lowering each side of the unit to similar heights.

B

A sway bar keeps the RV flatter in turns by transferring the pressure on the outboard wheel and applying it to the inboard tire, distributing the weight more evenly on all four wheels for a road-hugging ride.

A well-balanced drive starts with Jayco.

Every Jayco motorhome driveshaft is balanced. This extra step, overlooked by many competitors, ensures the driveshaft is properly tuned to reduce shudder and vibrations, while ensuring power is efficiently transmitted to the wheels.
