Jayco’s new Alante Class A motorhome

Middlebury, Ind.-based Jayco Inc. has introduced a new gas Alante Class A offering. Nationally advertised at $79,995 (USD) base price for the 31L and 31V models, the Alante Class A motorhome will initially be available in four floorplans and sold through authorized Jayco motorhome dealers.

“The new Alante motorhome is the perfect balance of style, Class A comfort, and value,” said Tadd Jenkins, president of the Jayco Motorhome Group, in a press release. “The success we’ve seen with the Precept was encouraging and we decided it was time to add another gas Class A to the Jayco lineup. We fully anticipate that the Alante’s appealing affordability combined with the quality craftsmanship of Jayco will raise the eyebrows of customers and dealers.”

The Alante offers “cab-forward” thinking with the industry’s narrowest A-pillars and largest windshield for better sight lines along with a six-way powered driver seat. Other key features include a seamless front cap with LED lighting accents, fiberglass roof, frameless windows, pass-through storage with slam-latch baggage doors, power awning and an exterior TV.

The interior is set off by expansive layouts and high-end touches including Amish-crafted honey-glazed cherry wood cabinetry, a glass shower door, high-intensity LED ceiling lights, a fully-equipped kitchen and two décor options. The Alante is backed by Jayco’s two-year limited warranty.

Built on the Ford F-53, 18,000- or 16,000-pound GVWR chassis depending on floorplan, the Alante boasts a powerful 6.8L Triton V-10 engine with five-speed TorqShift automatic overdrive and tow haul transmission, offering confidence and reliability on the road. Safety is top-of-mind in the Alante with a third brake light, safety belts in every seat, and back-up and side-view cameras and monitor.  In addition, excellent turning radius, cruise control and antilock front and rear disc brakes make the Alante the “ultimate in affordable drivability,” the company said.
