Smile eagle super lite information

does anyone have any information or comments on the eagle super lite 5th wheels? doing some research and can find the specs on them but no other information as to how people like them compared to the regular eagles. the reason for us looking at the super lite is we like the floorplan of the 2011 31.5rlts. we are comparing that to a cross roads sahara cruiser cf300es which seems to be built more like the eagle we have now. any comments good or bad would be apprectiated, thanks!

Can't compare directly, as have never owned a regular Eagle. But, after three seasons and 12,000 miles, my HT is still in perfect condition. It's a choice I'd make again with no reservations. A couple very minor warranty issues (leaking outside shower head, bad awning switch). The only things otherwise are when I do bad things to it myself!

We purchased a 2011 Eagle super lite 25.5rks used about 2 years ago. We have had very little trouble with it, and are quite happy we purchased it. Large holding tanks for size and weight of the camper makes for easy dry camping. Only problem was a cracked shower base at puchase the dealer replaced. We've put at least 20-25,000 miles on it with zero other problems. Tows like nothing behind with 2500 Ram Diesel. Love the combo. First 5er after trailers and Class A motorhome.

We have owned a 2012 HT 26.5 RLS since January 2012 and have very much enjoyed it. Had a problem with the wardrobe slide out that was eventually fixed after about three tries, the Lippert system is intriguing, but was messed up for a while. No troubles in the four seasons we've used it since buying it. Other major problem was a crack in the front cap near the driver side running light that Jayco fixed without question after our first season. We took a 20 day, 3,800 mile trip two springs ago out to California and back and slept in it all 20 days without a problem. The trailer was a breeze to tow and we got 12 mpg overall towing it for those 20 days. For the two of us it has been great with more than enough room. The two gray water holding tanks and one black water are more than enough for the three week-long trips we take to Grand Teton for fishing and sightseeing. Overall we have been very pleased with this FW, more than enough room, lots of windows so very bright and more than enough storage space for us.

thank you to everyone who replied. we purchased a eagle touring series, it came down to the super lite and the one we bought and due to this one being newer and having some really nice features and being a bit shorter we went with it.

I have a 32" tv on a stand, and store on the bed when traveling.
