Jayco Newcastle's new premises at Heatherbrae

Jayco Newcastle closed the doors of its Hexham facility after thirty years and has reopen at a unique all new site just off the large roundabout on the Pacific Highway at Heatherbrae in Camfield Drive, north of Hexham. The event was celebrated over the last weekend of November with a free BBQ, entertainment, lucky door prizes and a live broadcast from local radio station KOFM.

Caravan servicing and maintenance was moved to the new Heatherbrae service workshop in February after a fire badly damaged over seventy percent of the Hexham premises, including the workshop and service area, along with all spare parts and accessories in the warehouse. The showroom and spares had to wait until their new building was erected.

The new Jayco Newcastle facility is built on five acres offering plenty of room for off street parking even for customers dropping in with their vans in tow. The spares and accessories area is well set out offering a wide range of Jayco parts & accessories as well as for caravans in general.

The sales area includes private booths for customers to talk with salesman and a huge undercover outdoor caravan sales area. Jayco Newcastle have room to display one-hundred and fifty new 5th wheelers, caravans and campers along with a comprehensive range of pre-loved caravan and campers of various makes and models.

 There is also a large undercover handover area where customers are shown the ins and outs of their new caravan or camper on pickup. The process is very thorough and can take up to two hours.

The new service centre has ample off street parking for customers to leave their caravans or campers for servicing or repair. The undercover service area is large and able to accommodate around fifteen caravans and campers at a time.

Jayco Newcastle continues to innovate with new ways to buy caravans and campers with VIP programs, fuel discounts, details & advice.
