I was recently admiring the 2010 Senecas at a jayco dealers lot and was told by a salesman that the 2011s would be on a new chassis and would have a base price of 15-20 bucks higher that the 10s. At the time I just did not ask for more details, but would like to hear from you guys what you may have heard about these 2011 units. I have seen this discussed somewhere here on the forum previously, but was not really interested at the time. Can you clue me in as to what you have heard about the chassis, engine and transmissions? Thanks a bunch

Since the Kodiak is dead, rumor is rampant as to what Jayco is going to replace it with. Currently the Chevy Kodiak chassis was rated at 22,000 lb GVWR, so it would have to meet or exceed that. Maybe a Freightliner or International DuraStar 4400 Cab low profile chassis...?

Latest I heard was that they are going to be using a Freightliner M2 Chassis. Should be a nice offering.
Gulf Stream still offers a Super C on the International Chassis.

Ron, that's just the opposite of what I heard from someone on the Jayco Dealer council. He said probably International. Should be interesting to see what they actually use.

We are having a tour at the Jayco plant during our Kodiak Chassis rally. Should have the information then.

We just picked up our 2010 Embark from the factory. I was told that it wouldn't be the Freightliner M2 because the Embark uses it and it would drive the price to high.

We were told the same thing at the FMCA rally and by the dealer we bought our coach from.

It will be interesting to see what happens.

Just bought 2010 Jayco Seneca w/Dmax 6.6L & Allison 1000 trans. Haven't had opportunity to take it for shakedown cruise (and to get acclimated to newer/bigger/more gadgeted RV). But salesman gave us all the malarkey about the "deal" (actually we did do pretty well we think) because Jayco was going to have "new" diesel that required used of low sulphur fuel only and it would cost several thousand more. Huh? They've had THAT engine for some time. My neighbor who bought HR 40' Class A got the same pitch from same salesman 2 years ago! Bottom line: Vehicle salesmen are the same whether buying RV, car, truck or front loader: They tell you what you want to hear. And as others have noted, rumors abound in the vehicle industry all the time. Another bottom line: Find something you like & can afford, do some research on reliability (NO RV is road ready, be prepared to return to dealer for rinky dink adjustments) check with others on their experiences, make the best deal you can and enjoy the ride!
