The strange part is now the Eagle 324BHTS is an Eagle HT 324BHTS. He said Jayco previously had Eagle Super Lite and Eagle travel trailers but ended up moving the Super Lite trailers under the same Eagle name. Now they are moving some of the Eagle travel trailers into the Eagle HT designation such as the 324BHTS but they are still basically the same trailer as the 2016.
Does this make sense? Are the level of materials going to be the same as 2016 or are things going to be lightened up to meet this HT (Half-ton) designation?
I'm waiting to hear from Jayco but if anyone could shed some light on this I'd appreciate it! Thanks.
Congratulations the Eagle and welcome to the JOF.
Hearing from Jayco is the only way you come close to having an answer. My money (not literally) is on that the change is being driven by marketing; not significant physical changes to the unit. Hopefully you'll get a better answer from Jayco.
