At Roulottes Desjardins, we exclusively carry trailers from Jayco, a company whose mission is to build top quality vehicles. Because we share this recognized brand’s commitment to integrity, and their mission to bring families closer together, we chose to make Jayco trailers available to our customers.
Jayco was founded in 1968, inspired by the dream of a great visionary. Lloyd J. Bontrager, a man devoted to his family and his job as an inventor, was convinced that he could build a recreational vehicle better than what was found on the market at the time.
What he wanted above all was to start his own business, which clearly reflected his ideals; a company where everyone would be treated as a member of the family, from the factory stores, through to vendors, suppliers, customers and members of the community.
With the support of his wife, Lloyd eventually launched Jayco, the brand we know and trust today. It may be hard to believe, but the company initially operated from his farm, inside two chicken houses and a large barn.
He developed his own prototype for recreational vehicles, and for a lifter system for fold-down trailers, which is patented and still in use today. By the end of 1968, Jayco employed 15 people and had already sold 132 fold-down trailers.
