Jayco, Australia’s biggest RV manufacturer, now gives its customers the option to keep their appliances powered up for longer off-the-grid with the new lithium battery upgrade packages offered across their All-Terrain caravan collection.
Two ‘free camping’ power upgrades are available for All-Terrain buyers: the Off-Grid Pack One includes a 12V 200Ah lithium battery system with a 120amp charger and 2000W pure sine wave inverter, and the Off-Grid Pack Two features a 400Ah lithium battery, 180A charger, and 3000W inverter.
The packs also come with a 40Ah solar control unit, a seven-inch color touchscreen monitor, DC charging of up to 30Ah, and a heavy-duty rear bumper with an integrated firewood rack and unique Off-Grid X stick-on decals, according to a report.
Off-Grid X Pack One adds $9990 to the overall cost of an All-Terrain caravan, while the ‘Pack Two’ option is priced from $12,990.
The Off-Grid X packs incorporate components from the Projecta Intelli-Jay High Power management systems, which Jayco describes “can run the most demanding appliances and manage large solar installations.”
“As a fully modular AC & DC mobile powerhouse, everything is connected via Canbus communication, so individual components can be added as needed to customize or expand your system, including additional batteries,” Jayco said.
The seven-inch touchscreen also monitors other functions, including water and lighting.
The Jayco All Terrain caravans typically come standard with a single 100Ah lithium battery (with the option of a second lithium battery), Projecta LCD control panel, and 400W rooftop solar.
The Off-Grid X Pack Two was fitted to a 19ft All Terrain family bunk caravan displayed at the 2022 Queensland Caravan Supershow.
It also came with many other options, including an external slide-out kitchen, reversing and rear view cameras, 216-liter fridge/freezer, Truma gas heater, Cloud 9 mattress, water filter, leather upholstery, and brush bars, the show display vehicle had a tow-away price of AU$109,231.
