Jayco Austrailia has announced the release of the Conquest Tour Edition motorhome, according to a report on Auto Channel.

Previously only available on the caravan and camping show circuit, which recently took place across Australia, the Tour Edition motorhome will become part of Jayco’s standard product range available through its network of dealerships.

The new 2011 Conquest Tour Edition is exclusively available on the Fiat Conquest FD 23-1 and FD 23-3, and offers travelers great value for money with around $7,000 worth of savings on added interior and exterior upgrades.

Jayco’s motorhome manager, Bruce Astbury, said the company is excited to offer the unique product to RV enthusiasts and says the model stood out from the pack during recent caravan shows.

“We have designed the Conquest Tour Edition for customers who are passionate about the RV lifestyle and it has already proven to be a favorite amongst caravan show attendees,” Astbury said.

The Fiat Ducato is equipped with an automated manual gearbox and a 3.0 high performance turbo diesel engine, which guarantees drivers plenty of power on the road. The vehicle has a towing capacity of 1.5 ton, allowing it to tow bikes, boats and any other toys for all active pursuits.

The motorhome boasts Dometic double glazed windows for added privacy, as well as alloy sport rims, interior leather upholstery and a stylish silver exterior finish.

The model has an updated range of decor styles, with Eurostyle finishings such as Italian inspired door handles, a choice of tile and timber floor vinyl design, and a new style sink with a larger bowl for added home-like comfort.

Fitted with LED lighting ensuring optimum power usage, the vehicle also includes bonus extras such as external storage doors, electric steps and a Carefree Freedom Electric Box Awning, offering great value for money.

“We pride ourselves on build quality and design innovation, which can be seen in the Conquest’s one-piece integrated fiberglass cab surround, and the five layered vacuum bonded frame for greater insulation and strength. The fully insulated floor provides a barrier from road noise and cold temperatures,” Astbury said.

“All Jayco RVs are manufactured with tough-frame, vacuum-bonded fiberglass, which is 150% thicker than aluminum cladding and is virtually hail and dent resistant.”

Astbury said that the 2011 Conquest Tour Edition will be the same price as the Standard FD 23-1 Conquest.

    A up to date photo would have been nice.
    I have friends that live in the land Downunder. They enjoy the RV lifestyle and I could have emailed them a photo if there had been one.
    Thanks for your great work. I have been a fan and a reader of your stuff ever since you got started. This past March I celebrated my 48th year in the RV industry.
    I can not think of a job I have not done. I was even an editor for an old RV magazine named “WHEELS AFEILD.”
