Jayco says: "Well-appointed, comfortable and easy to maneuver, the 2009 Melbourne is the perfect motorhome for people who really want to travel. Melbournes smaller, more manageable size and nimble handling make it easy to go anywherefrom cities to winding mountain passes. Designed for luxury and simplicity, the Melbourne is built using only the best materials inside and out, letting you truly relax and enjoy your next adventure.

The picture below shows the interior of the 29D model (see floorplans further down this page.) We think this is a really nice arrangement with the dinette and sofa in opposite slides. This shows the standard entertainment center in front, which includes a 26" digital LCD TV. Jayco says: "Thanks to its functional and flexible living space, the Melbournes contemporary interior feels like home. The living and kitchen areas boast special touches like an Optima leather comfort lounger with removable arms, Jaycos famous handcrafted cabinetry with undercabinet lighting, as well as upscale appliances, fixtures and lighting

FLOORPLANS

The 24E has one slide. There is an option for a dinette instead of the comfort lounger shown. This is the shortest model at 28'8".

The 26A has a bedroom slide in addition to the living area slide. There is a dinette option once again. The 29B has one long slide incorporating the lounger and the dinette. The 29C has 2 slides with part of the kitchen arrangement included in one and the bed arrangement in the other.

The 29D has 3 slides. This is a really nice arrangement providing extra space in both the living area and the bedroom. You can see this arrangement in the video we show below.
