The Jayco Story
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" — from our factory to our front office, our salespeople to our suppliers, and our customers to our community.
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, with more than 25,000 people joining our "extended family" of customers each year.
Blending Old World Amish craftsmanship with innovative technology, Jayco is the nation’s largest family-owned and operated RV manufacturer today, developing a full lineup of recreation vehicles at our company headquarters in rural Middlebury, Ind. And while our product line has grown considerably, every unit we build is still guided by Lloyd’s vision and a humble desire to help make it easier for families to explore together and relax together. With a history dating back to 1968, Jayco's mission remains unchanged – to build exemplary RV's and provide customers with extraordinary service after the sale. It’s what separates us from other RV manufacturers.
“In 1968, in a barn on a country road, our dream became a reality."
