Jayco Silverline: Video Review

By: Malcolm Street, Video by: WTFN

If your heart is set on a bit of on-road luxury, along with a van that offers a spacious interior, it’ll be hard to go past the Silverline.

The new Silverline is a handsome looking van, with its moulded fibreglass front, smooth walls and flush windows – an image befitting its top tier status in the Jayco range.

It’s always interesting to note just how much space a slide-out offers in a caravan. But, in the case of our BAV vans, it’s also interesting that this was the only van which had a slide-out. Apart from anything else, slide-outs give flexibility in layouts, and alternatives to the standard front bedroom design become more practical.

Measuring Up

I liked...

  • Front club lounge
  • Spacious interior
  • LED lighting
  • Wall/roof design
  • Gas cylinders on slide-out tray
  • Recessed kitchen/bedroom compartments

I would have liked...

  • Less fiddly door/drawer catches
  • Full window curtains
  • Better table mounting
