AL-KO, the world leaders in caravan axles, brakes and components manufacture has announced that their revolutionary new AL-KO Electronic Stability Control (ESC) technology will be fitted as standard equipment to Jayco’s flagship products, the Sterling range of Caravans and Pop Tops.
In a world first innovation similar to ESC in cars, electronic sensors inside the AL-KO ESC monitor for any dangerous sideways movements of the caravan, taking preventative action immediately to maintain stability of both the car and caravan and ensure a safe recovery.
The announcement of Jayco fitting AL-KO ESC to the Sterling range as standard equipment continues the rapid adoption of
AL-KO ESC into caravan designs by manufacturers.
Over 30 brands are now offering the technology as an optional extra, while Jayco has joined a number of manufacturers that now have ESC fitted as standard across a range of products, further re-enforcing it as a revolutionary safety technology for caravanners.
Brad Hooper, AL-KO International Marketing Services Manager said: “We are extremely pleased that Jayco has recognised the significance of AL-KO Electronic Stability Control by making it standard on their Sterling range. We believe this is a new era in towing safety, and a technology that will ultimately save lives. To have Jayco behind the technology as market leader is a big step forward in ensuring the highest possible level of safety on our roads”.
Shane Holloway, National Sales Manager, Jayco said “With the recent success of this product at our last two main shows, and an increase in customer enquiry, we felt it was time to further raise the value of our Sterling range and include this innovative safety feature as standard, saving the customer up to $990”.
The change will be effective from May 2013 for the Sterling caravan range, and from 20th May, 2013 for the Sterling pop top range.
In addition to fitment to new caravans, AL-KO ESC is also now available for fitment to older caravans by AL-KO Certified Installers.
“The relatively low cost of fitting AL-KO ESC is a small price to pay to ensure safety and peace of mind for you and your family. Your insurance company may also offer a premium reduction for having AL-KO ESC fitted” said Mr Hooper.
