But first, what on earth is glamping?

If you’re already across this and have even, possibly, ‘glamped’ before, feel free to skip ahead. However, for those of you wondering if glamping is some sort of glamorous ping pong, please, read on.

‘Glamping’ is the art of bringing a little glamour to the humble camping experience. It all about taking the ‘rough’ out of ‘roughing it’. Generally, you will find three vital elements make up the glamping experience:

  1. style
  2. comfort; and
  3. luxury.

Now if you’ve heard of glamping but think it’s all about canvas bell tents, handwoven tribal rugs and scatter cushions… think again.

The kind of glamping we’re talking about is gen-u-ine camping luxury.

Think of a real bed with a proper mattress that doesn’t leave your hip bone digging into the ground.

Think comfy upholstered lounges for elegant relaxing under a leakproof, drip-proof roof.

Think actual sealed storage cupboards (and lots of them) so the native wildlife can’t nick off with your Scotch Fingers.

And best of all… get ready for it… an inside bathroom with a flushing toilet and a shower, without even leaving your campsite.

You have to admit, that’s a few notches above your average scout jamboree.

So, if you, or your other half, don’t identify as a ‘camper’ (well, at least not a happy one) perhaps you’ve just been doing it wrong all these years. Try glamping, Jayco style, and you just might become converted.


It’s camping, but not as you know it.

The Jayco Journey Deluxe is the only way to glamp.

One thing’s for sure, Jayco really does know how to glamp. Step up into the Journey Deluxe and it opens up like the Tardis. What they can’t fit into 17 feet is nobody’s business. With space-saving ideas at every turn, this Jayco pop top has everything you need to be supremely comfortable no matter how long you’re on the road. After all, do you really have to come home?

Seriously though, what’s noticeably changed in the RV-world in recent years is the design. Once, style was very much the poor cousin to function. Today, the sleek styling and finishes of the Journey Deluxe wouldn’t be out of place in a designer display home. With a modern colour palette, clean crisp lines, contemporary patterns and luxe finishes, it really puts the ‘glam’ into glamping.

Not that function has been neglected. In fact, far from it. When you take a close look at the layout, it all just works. The well thought through, stylish kitchen offers a surprising amount of storage. Directly adjacent, the comfortable dining area has roomy corner seating with plenty of room for four around a good-sized table.

In the sleeping department, there’s a proper bed that’s centred to allow good access on both sides. That means you won’t have to wriggle in from one side when you go to bed. And when you need to get out, nobody is climbing over anybody in the middle of the night… unless, of course, you want to.

In the dining area, the lounge also converts to a bed to accommodate a junior happy camper.

At the opposite end of the Journey Deluxe is a private bathroom, stretching the full width of the van. Having a full shower, hand basin and toilet on board is the ultimate camping luxury.

If you’re going to get out there, you’ll want to go Outback

Now just because you’re going in style, doesn’t mean you can’t get off the beaten track. With Jayco’s Outback upgrade, the Journey Deluxe is ready to get dirty and head off road for guaranteed adventure.

The Outback spec includes a range of specialised features including aluminium checker plate on the sides for protection from whatever the great outdoors throws at you. You also get a good-looking set of 16-inch alloy wheels and higher ground clearance to help you navigate rocky ground or soft sandy dunes. And when you’re miles from nowhere (or when your extension lead just doesn’t quite reach), your 120W solar panel and 100AMP battery will keep you in the luxury to which you’ve quickly become accustomed. Thank goodness.

Tough enough to go the distance

When you’re heading out into the great unknown, one of the biggest luxuries is peace of mind. You need to be able to trust that your kit will do the job of getting you there – and home – safely. After all, hands up who wants to breakdown on the Nullarbor? Anyone? We didn’t think so.

Jayco doesn’t want you to either. That’s why their pop top caravans are constructed using a tough-as-nails multi-layered frame. Their vacuum-bonded walls, made from hail- and dent-resistant fibreglass, are also stronger than conventional aluminium clad caravans. All this sits on top of Jayco’s lightweight and super-strong ‘Endurance Chassis’. The resulting package is a caravan that’s designed to navigate the toughest environments. Take that Nullarbor.

When the road gets rough, enjoy a smoother ride with JTECH suspension

Developed exclusively for Jayco, the high-performance JTECH suspension system delivers greater stability, a smoother ride and exceptional handling. Designed to fit with the Jayco Endurance Chassis, the JTECH system replaces beam axles with individual stub axles, enabling each wheel to respond independently to the road while reducing the chassis’ unsprung weight. But what does all this mean? In a nutshell, JTECH suspension makes towing your caravan or camper easier and safer than ever before.

So why choose a pop top over a traditional caravan or a camper trailer?

Pop top caravans, like the Journey Deluxe, really do give you the best of both worlds.

On one hand, you have all the comfort and storage space of a traditional caravan. Indoor cooking, dedicated eating and relaxing areas and lots and lots of cleverly thought-out storage nooks and crannies.

On the other hand, you have the hitch-and-go freedom of a camper trailer. When you’re on the road and the top is down, the streamlined design means that you have less drag, better fuel economy and you hardly feel like you’re towing anything at all.

You have to admit, when you put it like that it’s hard not to go for a pop top.

Trust Jayco to get you there
