2018 Jayco Greyhawk 29MV Review

by RVGuide.com

The 2018 Jayco Greyhawk makes road tripping easy and comfortable for your group of eight, with seatbelts for all and sleeping space too.

The Jayco Greyhawk has seven different floorplans to pick from. We’re taking a closer look at the 2018 Jayco Greyhawk 29MV. It has a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating of 14,500 lbs and a Gross Combined Weight Rating of 22,000 lbs.

It measures 32’6” long, 100” wide, and 11’6” high with the air conditioning unit. The fresh water tank has a capacity of 47 gallons, the grey water tank holds 41 gallons, and the black water tank holds 33 gallons. The fuel tank has a 55-gallon capacity.

Built on a Ford E-450 chassis, the Greyhawk has a 305 HP engine with 420 lb-ft torque, and six-speed TorqShift series transmission with overdrive.

Jayco RVs have the J-Ride ride and handling package designed to make your drive as smooth and comfortable as possible. Part of the J-ride package is the standard front and heavy-duty rear stabilizer bars between the wheels to help reduce tilting when the vehicle is cornering, as well as Bilstein shock absorbers.

Vacuum-bonded laminated floor, sidewalls, and roof, white fiberglass exterior with vinyl graphics – or full-body paint option – and one-piece seamless front cap and fiberglass roof. Automatic hydraulic leveling jacks help make campsite set-up easier, and the roof ladder makes it simple to get up top.

Roomy pass-through and locking exterior storage compartments have lots of space for all your gear. The outdoor living space has a 16’ power awning with LED lights and high-output marine-grade exterior speakers. There is also an outside shower.

Inside, in the cab area, the six-way-start power driver seat and tilt steering wheel will keep the driver comfortable on the road. The Garmin Infotainment and navigation system, back-up and side-view cameras that come on when you activate the turn signals, and heated and remote-controlled side view mirrors make driving safer and easier.

An overhead bunk above the cockpit area has a privacy curtain, sleeps two, and has a 750-pound weight capacity.

The interior décor of the 2018 Jayco Greyhawk has been updated with clean, simple lines, color combinations, and modern touches like the cabinet hardware and tile backsplash. Vinyl-padded ceilings help to dampen exterior sound.

A full 7’ of height allows for bigger windows on the slides, and more space for overhead cabinet storage. A skylight in the living area, with shade, lets in even more natural light or allows for stargazing.

The trifold hide-a-bed sofa sleeps two and also has seatbelts for travelling. A 32” HD LED television above the cab is easily viewed from the sofa.

The dinette booth has four more seatbelts. When traveling is done for the day, the Dream Dinette mechanism makes it simple to lower the tabletop for easy conversion into a bed for two. Storage under the dining benches is easily accessible thanks to drawers on the sides.

In the kitchen area, a three-burner range, oven, and residential microwave oven have your cooking needs covered. The eight-cubic-foot double-door refrigerator comes standard or you can opt for the 12-cubic-foot version so that you have even more cold storage. With door fronts that match the rest of the cabinetry, the fridge blends in seamlessly with the rest of the décor. A double basin stainless steel sink helps make food prep and cleanup a little easier.

The solid surface countertop has an additional slide-out peninsula piece to increase your workspace area. There is also plenty of drawer storage underneath.

In the master bedroom, there’s a full walk-around queen-size bed with deep overhead storage cabinets and a shelf on each side for your book and glasses, as well as nearby power outlets. Windows on each side of the bed provide a nice cross-breeze on summer nights. A large wardrobe with mirrored doors has lots of space for hanging up clothes, and there is also a tall stack of dresser drawers for plenty more storage. If you like to catch a show or the news before bed, you can opt for the 24” LED television in the bedroom. You’ll still be able to flip the television up and access storage space behind.

The 2018 Jayco Greyhawk 28MV starts at $118,008 and comes with a two-year warranty. For more information, visit www.jayco.com.
