2017 Eagle Floorplans

I just happened to look at the Jayco website today and the 2017 Eagle line seems to have significantly reduced the layouts from 2016! We have a 16 Eagle 314BHDS (that we custom ordered and just took delivery on in May) and this floorplan does not seem to be available in 2017.

Wondering if anyone else has noticed and/or tried for a previous floorplan on the 17's. I'm curious as to why Jayco may have done this and I'm hopeful that maybe I can get a few extra bucks when I upgrade in a few years..

They usually drop low volume units.

I'm pretty sure it's a very popular floorplan. Perhaps Jayco wasn't selling many in the Eagle trim - same is available in the JayFlight and still in 2017.

No longer making our model this year.
We had to buy 2 states away to get our camper. Our custom order was submitted 1 week to late.

Not sure if it's true, but a dealer told me they were coming back with the Eagle HT version that will pick-up the 314 floor plan, as well as a few others. I really like the 2017 Eagle 333 with the three slides on the back, makes me regret not waiting a few more months....

I saw a hint in the 2017 338RETS preview video posted elsewhere that there will be a Eagle HT TT line. The guy shooting the video was pointing out that the propane tank cover on the 2017 338RETS was not available on the HT TT line.

I also asked a Jayco rep when I had them on the phone and he said that they were planning on breaking out some of the lighter, smaller floorplans in the Eagle lineup and put them under the HT moniker like they do with the 5th wheels.

So I would have to think that at some point, at least some of the previous, and maybe 1 or 2 new smaller Eagle TT floorplans will make a return under the Eagle HT TT moniker.

Jayco has finally posted the rest of the Eagle TT lineup which is now broken out into the Eagle and Eagle HT models like the 5er's are.

We were looking at trading in our whitehawk and noticed they moved most of the bunkhouse floor plans to the HT line. We like the 295DBOK floor plan. Listed weight isn't bad at 8095 but with options and gear its pushing our chevy 6.0gas truck to its max and not sure with the 2000mile round trips we take every year how well it would do.

Don't know what grades you might encounter on your trips, but let me toss this out there.

My 2015 GMC 6.0 gasser with 4:10 rear did (in my opinion) just fine on our trip to Florida (about 3000 mi roundtrip) via I-75 going south and I-65 going north. We were pulling about 9200 in the trailer and another 1000 give or take in the bed of the truck.

Since I wanted to see what it would do, I ran in tow/haul mode with the cruise set about 63 the whole time. Going uphill, there was downshifting from 6th to 5th on most hills and only went to 4th one time and that was at Jericho.

As for downhill, it never felt the need to downshift with one exception, which was when we were traversing the Monteagle pass on I-65 north. It was obviously steeper than anything on I-75 and although I was hesitant, I again let the truck do it's thing. It needed to downshift to 4th gear to maintain the 45 mph cruise setting, but handled it just fine. So never touched the brakes once on any downhill taking those routes.

Overall got about 8-8.5 mph and was a very pleasant trip. I plan on doing it again this year with our heavier 2017 Eagle 330RSTS (if it ever gets here!) and have no doubt it can handle it just fine.

Thanks for sharing. I have a 2010 with 3.73s. I don't think it will have any issues seeing how I forget the 7500lb trailer is even behind my truck at times and I can set the cruise on flat roads at 71 and run 2000/2100rpms. Worst case scenario I have to pony up and drop 4.10s in it.
