Jayco, Inc. is one of the largest manufacturers of travel trailers, fifth wheels and Class C motorhomes. Located in Middlebury, Indiana, Jayco was founded in 1968 by Lloyd J. Bontrager who felt he could build a better RV and a better company. He started Jayco on the family farm – in two chicken houses and a barn – by developing a prototype camping trailer and an original lifter system for fold-down campers. This design was patented and is still in use today. By the end of the first year Bontrager had 15 employees and the company had sold 132 camping trailers. Today the company is still owned and operated by the Bontrager family and almost 1,500 employees are part of the “Jayco family.”
Jayco, Inc. is the largest privately-held manufacturer of recreational vehicles in North America. The company makes and markets Jayco RVs under the Jay Series, Baja, Select, Jay Flight, Jay Feather, Eagle, Octane ZX, Designer, Greyhawk, Precept, Melbourne, Seneca, Embark, and Insignia nameplates. In addition, the company markets Starcraft, R/T, Centennial, Travel Star, Rock Star, Homestead and Lexion RVs through its Starcraft RV division and upscale Aspire, Anthem and Cornerstone motorhomes through the Entegra Coach division. With an order backlog the highest it had been in two years, in late 2009 Jayco recalled or hired more than 200 production workers. According to Jayco, “We're committed to being the most respected name in recreation vehicles.”
