Jayco has been in business for more than fifty years and in that time has established very strong relationships with its family of dealers, according to the company. A handful of Jayco’s dealers have sold Jayco RV’s since Lloyd and Bertha Bontrager started the company in 1968.

“We really wouldn’t be where we are today, without our amazing family of dealers,” said Derald Bontrager, Jayco president and CEO. “These are the folks on the front line for Jayco, connecting with the families looking to purchase their next big adventure. They put the people in our RVs and we are very grateful for that.”
