Jayco May Install Fuel Cells in Select 2011 Travel Trailers
RV Pro magazine
Jayco is partnering with SFC Smart Fuel Cell to investigate the feasibility of putting fuel cells in select lightweight Jayco trailers, potentially in 2011 models. The two companies announced their research and market alliance during the National RV Trade Show in Louisville, Ky., this week.
SFC Smart Fuel Cell, based in Brunnthal, Germany, already supplies fuel cell technology to 48 European-based RV manufacturers either as a standard OEM feature or optional accessory. The company reports it has sold 15,000 units thus far.
Jayco and Smart Fuel Cell have established a joint research and market development alliance that is looking at putting SFC EFOY fuel cells in new, lightweight Jayco trailers.
The EFOY fuel cell series consist of three models with a charging capacity of 900 to 2,200 watt hours per day, depending upon individual power requirements. The fuel cells would work in conjunction with the trailer’s existing battery system as a hybrid power system. Powered by methanol, the EFOY system generates emission-free power and makes virtually no noise.
RVers- How do they live like that?
Full-time RVing is not dropping off the face of the earth. It is not an endless vacation. Judy Farrow and Lou Stoetzer in RVers — How do the live like that? have shown what RV life is like, styles of RVing and what to expect as a full-timer. Sprinkled with actual cases, it makes for fascinating reading and gave voice to things RVers experience but may not put into words. It is an excellent book for those thinking about the RV lifestyle and to give to relatives of RVers to get insight in the lifestyle. Current RVers will enjoy the book and find it helpful, particularly at transition points in their lives.
