Jayco Expandas With New Line-Up
The key feature of the Expanda range is the spacious interior created by extending the van's superstructure.
Unlike the bed extensions in camper trailers, which slide out from the superstructure once the roof has been raised, Expanda beds fold out from the front and rear of the van, the bed bases forming front and rear walls when under tow.
An electric slide-out lounge is also available.
The new models are built on Jayco's galvanised, extra-strength Millennium Chassis, which Jayco claim is lighter, yet stronger than a conventional chassis. The roof and walls are built with Jayco's Tough-Frame construction system, and the outer fibreglass skin is one and a half times thicker than standard aluminium.
The exterior has an automotive high gloss finish with new tail-light housing and a powder-coated bumper bar.
Interior features include a brushed aluminium 4 burner stove and range hood, a recessed stainless-steel sink with glass lid and new overhead cupboards with solid profiled doors.
A three-way Dometic fridge is included in all new Expanda models.
The range has new decor including new wall, curtain, cushion and laminex colours.
There are two 3.79m pop-top models with a front kitchen and one double bed, which folds out from the rear.
There are two mid-range 4.73m pop-tops with double bed extensions at front and rear and one model with a toilet and shower.
The largest Expanda model is the 5.71m caravan with double bed extensions at either end and an electric slide-out lounge.
The smaller models' interior length of 3.64m transforms into 6.1m when the double bed is folded out.
The mid-range models' interior goes from 4.74m to 7.19m, while the caravan stretches from 5.14m to 8.03m. An additional bed can be created using the dinette conversions.
