Jayco Inc. announced it has begun production of its all-new 2013 Seismic toy hauler, which recently earned a spot in the RVBusiness “Top 25 Debuts” list.
“We recognize the market for sport utility trailers is more sophisticated today than ever before,” said Sid Johnson, director of marketing for Middlebury, Ind.-based Jayco. “Consumers want more than a garage attached to a sleeping area. Our goal is to provide a fifth-wheel which offers top-level amenities yet still provides room enough to carry whatever toys a family might want to bring along.”
The spacious, versatile on-board garage can convert into a bunkroom, patio deck or dining space. In addition to hauling ATV’s and motorcycles using the in-floor mounted D-rings, families can pack bicycles, games, canoes and other traditional outdoor gear. The garage can also be converted into workspace for crafters who sell their wares or dog show owners who need a grooming station.
Johnson also noted the list of “set-apart” features built into the Seismic, stating, “Everything about the look of the Seismic is different.”
Innovative features include a contoured front cap, three premium paint schemes, contemporary modern décor and residential-style furniture. “The unit has a modern feel to it and features many contemporary conveniences,” Johnson said. “We believe today’s consumer will appreciate the styling.”
Blending form with function, Seismic’s deluxe kitchen offers toe-kick lighting, high-end vinyl flooring, pendant lighting and high-gloss, solid-surface kitchen countertops with undermounted stainless-steel sink. Owners will enjoy a good night’s sleep in Seismic’s main bedroom with a 312-coil, 60-inch by 80-inch deluxe mattress with 2-inch top-side pad. A decorative headboard, added air conditioning ducts, 22-inch LCD HDTV and walk-in closet complete the suite.
The Seismic is equipped with a 102-inch wide-body construction on Jayco’s I-Class cambered structural-steel I-beam frame. The unit also has a one-piece underbelly cover with exposed fuel tanks and a one-piece seamless rubber roof with 3/8-inch plywood roof decking. Reflective foil insulation in the living room, bedroom and slideout floors, combined with Jayco’s Polar Barrier insulation package, help Seismic maintain interior temperatures for the ultimate stay.
“We wanted to make the entire experience more enjoyable for the owner,” Johnson said. “From towing to set up to take down, we made sure Seismic delivers.”
