The Jayco company’s tag line is “America’s Most Liveable RVs.” I see many Jayco products on the road these days and soon there will be even more.
Jayco recently purchased land, buildings and equipment from bankrupt Travel Supreme .
Jayco’s Director of Marketing, Sid Johnson, told me that Jayco has established a new subsidiary company under the Jayco umbrella called Entegra Coach, Inc. Sid said, “We are currently assembling the management and production team at Entegra Coach and our plans call for two lines of luxury fifth wheels and three lines of diesel-pusher Class A motorhomes.” They plan to build these new products in the 160,000-square-foot facility in Wakarusa, Indiana that formerly housed Travel Supreme. Here is a picture of Jayco headquarters.
Jayco appointed the former president of Travel Supreme as the new president of Entegra Coach. Why would you hire a guy to run your new company after he ran Travel Supreme into bankruptcy? Jayco is probably banking he’s learned from his mistakes and will work hard to get it right this time. I liked Travel Supreme products and was sad to see them go. So, I was glad to hear Jayco is breathing new life into this company and look forward to seeing their new products in the years ahead. Jayco got out of the class A building business and focused instead on trailers, fifth wheels and the class C market with products like this handsome Seneca model.
Now they’re back in the class A segment of the market and I hope they have a long successful run this time. I think we’ll see some high quality RVs and strong innovation come from Entegra Coach! Jim Twamley, Professor of RVing
