RV Country talks about how Jayco was started

The Jayco blue tag event is starting soon and we thought you’d like to hear a little bit about how Jayco was started. Jayco, Inc. was founded in 1968 by a man of strong faith and vision. The late Lloyd J. Bontrager, family man and inventor, felt he could build the world a better RV. He longed to create a company of his own, one that clearly reflected his ideals: a company where everyone would be treated as "family". 

With encouragement from his wife Bertha, Lloyd started Jayco on their farm–in two chicken houses and a barn! He developed his own prototype camping trailer and a unique lifter system for fold-down campers, the basic design of which is patented and still in use today. By the end of 1968, his fledgling company of 15 employees had sold 132 fold-down camping trailers. 

Today, Jayco's "family" of employees has grown to nearly 1,600 people, while more than 25,000 people join our "extended family" of customers each year. 

As you can see, Paul Evert's RV Country has good reason to be excited about our partnership with such a great company!
