About The Jayco Brand
Peace and love were in the air—and so was the entrepreneurial spirit. In 1968, Lloyd and Bertha Bontrager set out to make a family dream a reality in their quiet corner of Northern Indiana. Let the fun begin!
In the 1970s, while families gathered around the newfangled video boxes (TVs of course!), we began to make a name for ourselves as well! We did so by acquiring competitors, delivering new products, and selling internationally for the first time. Look out, TVs! We’ve got an idea for family time too.
Jayco was established among the powers of the RV industry in the 1980s and we mourned the loss of our fearless leader, Lloyd, in a tragic plane crash. That didn’t stop the momentum, though, as we instead chose to double down on the vision for family fun in the 1990s, when Jayco acquired Starcraft, one of the oldest and most respected builders of campers. During this time, Lloyd was inducted into the RV Hall of Fame, we built and shipped over 300,000 units in 1997, and our new corporate headquarters facility was completed in Middlebury, Indiana.
In 2002, Jayco introduced the Jay Flight travel trailers, which as of today, have been the #1 selling travel trailer in North America for thirteen consecutive years. In 2006, we built and shipped our 500,000th unit, and introduced the first lightweight toy hauler travel trailer built with a wider stance, known first as the Talon. Fast forward two years to 2008 and we acquired assets of the former Travel Supreme and launched the Class A diesel-pusher Entegra Coach division.
Between four divisions of Jayco, Starcraft RV, Entegra Coach, and Highland Ridge RV in May of 2016, we built and celebrated the same of our 1,000,000th unit in total. On July 1st of the same year, Jayco Corporation, including all of the brands of Jayco, Starcraft RV, Entegra Coach, and Highland Ridge RV, was acquired by Thor Industries.
Jump ahead to modern times, a global pandemic reawakened everyone's desire to get outside and sparked another golden age for the RVing community. With eyes toward a bright future, Jayco, Entegra Coach, Highland Ridge, and Starcraft unified as the Jayco Family of Companies.
