Power Broker. The 2009 Embark is the perfect balance of power and security.

Built on a Freightliner M2 Chassis with a 330 horsepower Cummins ISC diesel

engine and a 6-speed Allison automatic transmission, the Embark gives you

all the power you need. And with a spacious cab, surprisingly tight turning

radius and excellent visibility, you’ll feel at home behind the wheel.

Durable Construction

Our TuffShell sidewall construction features a lightweight

aluminum frame , efficient bead foam insulation (R-9 max),


/ 16” plywood and steel backer plates that are vacuum-bonded

for superior strength and weight reduction.

Protection from the Elements

Jayco’s TuffShell fiberglass one-piece vacuum-bonded roof

provides first-class protection from rain, heat and noise with

UV inhibiter, 5” welded aluminum trusses , and bead foam

insulation (R25).

Power for the Road

A 330hp (2,000 rpm) Cummins ® ISC Diesel Engine

combines with the 6-speed Allison ® automatic

transmission and a 20,000 lb. hitch to give the

Embark up to 10 tons of towing capacity that can

pull just about any boat, vehicle or trailer you want

to take with you.


e m b a r k

Firm Foundation

With a 1 ½” welded steel frame , steel support trusses and


/ 8” one-piece Structurwood ® flooring , the Embark’s foundation

is built to withstand the rigors of road travel. And with heavy

duty automatic hydraulic leveling jacks , a durable carpet pad

and easy-care carpet , the Embark is also ready for the trials of

everyday living.

Convenience and Comfort

An array of design details give the Embark that something extra that

is only appreciated over time: aerodynamic design gives you better

handling on the road; easy access to storage reduces frustration;

tinted safety glass windows give you privacy and efficiency; central

air conditioning and an electric awning make it easy to stay cool

both inside and out.

Unloaded Vehicle Weight (UVW): Sometimes referred to

as “Dry Weight,” UVW means the typical weight of this motorhome as

built at the factory. The UVW, as used in product literature and other

promotional materials, does not include cargo, fresh water, LP gas,

options or dealer-installed accessories.

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR): GVWR means the

maximum permissible weight of the motorhome, including the UVW

plus passengers, personal items, all cargo, fluids, options and dealerinstalled

accessories. The GVWR is equal to or greater than the sum of

the UVW and the CCC.

Cargo Carrying Capacity (CCC): CCC means the maximum

weight of all passengers, personal items, food, fresh water, LP gas,

tools, other cargo and dealer-installed accessories that can be carried

by the motorhome. CCC is equal to or less than GVWR minus UVW. The

addition of options will decrease the CCC.

It is important for your safety and enjoyment that you are aware of the weights and tow ratings of the RV you select. Consult a

competent advisor for questions or advice. Whether you are new to RVing or a veteran, get a feel for the performance of your RV before

heading out on the roadways. When you tow a vehicle with your RV you must drive differently than when you drive a single vehicle.

Practice hooking up, driving, backing up and braking in a safe environment or seek out professional instruction. Jayco affixes a weight

label to each RV which lists weight information for that vehicle. Refer to that label to verify the vehicle will meet your requirements.

We Back What We Build.

The Jayco Co-Pilot Warranty is a manufacturer’s

limited warranty. It comes from the people who

build Jayco recreation vehicles to the people who

buy them. Each Jayco is warranted to the original

purchaser for twenty-four (24) months or twenty-four

thousand (24,000) miles (mileage limitation applies

to motorized products only), whichever occurs first,

from the original date of purchase against defects in

materials and workmanship. Jayco’s limited warranty

is not transferable. Go ahead and compare the Jayco

warranty with other manufacturers’ warranties. You’ll

find it’s the best in the business!

For a copy of the limited warranty with full terms and

conditions, ask your local Jayco dealer.

Why a Local Jayco Dealer is Important to You

Establishing a solid relationship with your local Jayco

dealer is a key component in the enjoyment of your

new Jayco. By purchasing from a local dealer, you

will have a convenient location for sales, parts and

service support.

Jayco dealers are required to deliver all products

at the site of the sale to ensure a full product

orientation and walk through at the time of delivery.

It’s a good way to become familiar with your Jayco

and to meet the service, parts and warranty staff

members who will be assisting you. If you live in

Canada, there are regulations that must be met

when buying a Jayco RV. Your local Canadian dealer

is a professional at meeting these requirements and

regulations. There simply is no substitute for a good

relationship with your local Jayco dealer.

it’s ALWAYS been

about “liveability”

Lloyd Bontrager went into the RV manufacturing

business in 1968 to improve the camping trailer

lifter system. He knew that a better lifter system

would mean a more “liveable” camping experience

for his family and so many others.

More than forty years later, and now the largest familyowned

RV manufacturer in the world, this priority still

rings true at Jayco. As we work to continue building

“America’s Most Liveable RVs”, we do it with one

goal in mind —to improve the RV experience and help

make “family time” truly memorable.
