Jayco R&D extends Optimum motorhome Iveco option to tow 3000kg, and seat  four

Jayco's new range of Optimum motorhomes offers Recreational Vehicle (RV) enthusiasts the choice of Iveco and Fiat variants with the Iveco rated to tow 3000kg, carry more and seat four. There is also a range of innovative layouts in high roof models.

Jaycos Marketing Director, Andrew Ryan, says the 2012 Optimum Motorhome range is ideal for travellers who demand premium quality and have an eye for style.

We are extremely proud of the 2012 Jayco Optimum; we think it packs a real punch in terms of comfort, looks and safety. We have really raised the bar with this range, Andrew Ryan said.

Jayco put 14 months of research and development into the 2012 Optimum Motorhome range. The exterior has got a refresh with a new fibreglass nose cone (not available for the Iveco.28-85 model), updated side skirts and tail light assembly and new trunk doors. These 2012 features have new eye-catching graphics and exclusive automotive paint finish emblazoned on the Optimums exterior.

New to the interior of the Jayco Optimum range is stylish two tone leather design furniture, Coast to Coast washing machine (optional in the Fiat 26-2 model) and high quality Dometic windows with built in blinds.

Jayco has also upgraded the safety features on the new Optimum with a new rear-view mirror mounted reversing screen and two rear cameras for parking in tight campsites.

To add space and convenience there are double electric slide outs. Push a button and both the bed and the lounge expand or contract, providing extra room to move when camped.

Standard features include a barbecue, 120w solar panels, picnic table and entertainment system in the exterior as well as an extendable aluminium bed frame and satellite television system inside.

Here is a breakdown of the two Jayco Optimum motorhome models towing and seating.

Fiat: 5000GVM, towing capacity 1200kg 2 people

Iveco: 7000GVM, towing capacity 3000kg, seating 4 people

Customers have the added protection of Jaycos 12 month warranty and Roadside Assist Program which is provided free for three years, available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

The 2012 Optimum is available at all Jayco dealers across Australia and New Zealand. Forthe nearest Jayco dealer call 1300 JAYCO RV or visit
