Jayco’s probably best known for its caravans, but the brand has recently introduced a new motorhome range that follows the same design philosophies and build quality of their most highly specified vans

Jayco Conquest
Jayco Conquest
  • Jayco Conquest models offer six possible floor plans
  • High roof or low roof combinations
  • High build quality and attention to design and detail
  • Motorhome goes through rigorous testing
  • Fiat Ducato chassis drives like a car

Jayco’s new Conquest range represents entry into the latest Jayco motorhome designs, with a longer wheelbase Optimum series sitting above it. But you miss out on none of the essential luxuries.

Exterior

Conquest’s structure is a single one-piece fibreglass cab surround with decorative external finishes and side skirts that hide the tubular aluminium skeleton and a four layer, vacuum-bonded wall construction.

The interior also includes powder-coated aluminium framing in the high use areas and durable and tasteful upholstery and veneer work.

All of Jayco’s products are torture tested in the harsh Australian environment, and also at the company’s new quality control and validation centre with water testing and moving road areas.

Interior

With six possible floor plans and both high roof (additional sleeping capacity) or low roof (more cupboard space) combinations, there’s a layout to suit anyone’s preferences. Options include a rear north/south or east/west rear bed configuration, club lounge layout, additional twin singles or with more seating and storage facilities.

The club lounge variant we sampled came in at 7170mm in length and featured swivel driver’s and passenger seating, a four burner hob, generous fridge, microwave, 125 litres of fresh water and 130 litres of grey water, reversing sensors and rear view screen, a Fiamma F45 awning, electric step, 9kg and 4.5 kg gas bottles, gas and electric hot water, LCD Television and wind up antenna, a 500x700 roof hatch and external provisions for a generator.

Driving

The Jayco Conquest sits atop a motorhome specific Fiat Ducati chassis, which drives like a car, looks the business and provides cutting edge safety and environmental technologies.

There 115kW and 400Nm of torque on offer from the 3.0-litre diesel with a six-speed auto transmission and stability control, ABS and dual airbags are all standard equipment.
