Middlebury, Indiana-based Jayco, Inc. introduced a new gas Class A motorhome, the Alante. Nationally advertised at $79,995 base price for the 31L and 31V models, the Alante Class A motorhome will initially be available in four floor plans and will be sold through authorized Jayco motorhome dealers.
“The new Alante motorhome is the perfect balance of style, Class A comfort, and value,” said Tadd Jenkins, president of the Jayco Motorhome Group, in a company news release.
“The success we’ve seen with the Precept was encouraging and we decided it was time to add another gas Class A to the Jayco lineup. We fully anticipate that the Alante’s appealing affordability combined with the quality craftsmanship of Jayco will raise the eye brows of customers and dealers.”
The Alante comes complete with several “must have” items for cross-country travel and priceless enjoyment including cab-forward thinking with the industry’s narrowest A-pillars and largest windshield for better sight lines along with six-way powered driver seat.
Other key features include a seamless front cap with LED lighting accents, fiberglass roof, frameless windows, pass-through storage with slam-latch baggage doors, power awning, and an exterior TV.
The striking interior features expansive layouts and high-end touches including Amish-crafted honey-glazed cherry wood cabinetry, a glass shower door, high-intensity LED ceiling lights, a fully-equipped kitchen, and two décor options from which to choose from.
The Alante is backed by Jayco’s two-year limited warranty.
Built on the Ford F53, 18K or 16K chassis depending on floor plan, the Alante boasts a 6.8L Triton V-10 engine with five-speed TorqShift automatic overdrive and tow haul transmission. Safety is top of mind in the Alante with a third brake light, safety belts in every seat, and back-up and side-view cameras and monitor.
In addition, its turning radius, cruise control, and antilock front and rear disc brakes make the Alante the ultimate in affordable drivability.
