“We recognize the market for sport utility trailers is more sophisticated today than ever before,” says Sid Johnson, director of marketing for Jayco. “Consumers want more than a garage attached to a sleeping area. Our goal is to provide a fifth wheel which offers top-level amenities yet still provides room enough to carry whatever toys a family might want to bring along.”
Seismic’s garage can convert into a bunkroom, patio deck or dining space. In addition to hauling ATVs and motorcycles thanks to in-floor mounted D-rings, Jayco says families can also pack bicycles, games, canoes and other traditional outdoor gear. The garage can also be converted into workspace for crafters who sell their wares or dog show owners who need a grooming station.
“Everything about the look of the Seismic is different,” says Johnson “The unit has a modern feel to it and features many contemporary conveniences. We believe today’s consumer will appreciate the styling.”
The Seismic features a contoured front cap and comes in three paint schemes. Inside you’ll find a kitchen with toe-kick lighting, vinyl flooring, pendant lighting and high-gloss, solid-surface kitchen countertops with undermounted stainless-steel sink. Seismic’s main bedroom features a 312-coil, 60″ x 80″ deluxe mattress with 2″ top-side pad. A decorative headboard, added air conditioning ducts, 22-inch LCD HDTV and walk-in closet complete the suite.
The Seismic features a 102″ wide-body construction on Jayco’s I-Clas cambered structural-steel I-beam frame. The unit has a one-piece underbelly cover with exposed fuel tanks and a one-piece seamless rubber roof with 3/8″ plywood roof decking. Reflective foil insulation in the living room, bedroom and slideout floors, combined with Jayco’s Polar Barrier insulation package, help Seismic maintain interior temperatures for the ultimate stay.
“We wanted to make the entire experience more enjoyable for the owner,” says Johnson. “From towing to set up to take down, we made sure Seismic delivers.”
