Are There Things You'd Like Jayco to Change?

We have been very happy with our Eagle, but if I had to select just one negative, it would be that the 15% tongue weight, which combined with the otherwise great closet across the beam and all underbelly storage in front, easily overloads WD bars.

What would you like done to your Jayco product? And this is not an invitation to b.... & moan, just serious suggestions.

Per wired for AC in the bunkhouse, course that would also require 50 amp service, so I am wishing for too much.

A few suggestions I have we're changed in 2014 - black trim and black hardware and covers outside, slam baggage doors. Above that, a wall mounted light switch in the bunk room, skylight over kitchen area, high gloss exterior fiberglass, microwave in the exterior kitchen, and a few odds and ends.

We really don't have much to suggest in the way of improvements - we like our unit pretty much as is. The only things I can think of is making a quadra exterior step available as an option instead of the tri-step, and the option of painted graphics instead of decals which peel after a few years. Other than that, leave things as they are.

I would love to have see through vinyl in the bunkends. From the inside out 1st. tenting material that is already used 2nd. see through vinyl (new), 3rd. screening that is already used. Having see through vinyl in the bunkends would allow you to see outside when it is raining, hot and using the AC, cold and using the furnace.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

I wish ours had a larger fresh water tank and a shower stall, this has been changed in the new model of our trailer which is the Eagle 266RKS. We love the trailer just the same.

We have a 2013 26RLS.

I would like to have a fan on the rear vent. And my wife would like to have a switch on the wall for the bathroom fan which she can't reach as it is up in the vent.

That's it. We really like this TT.

It's a little thing, but.... The door is latched open, it starts to rain, and I have to stand outside in the rain on the steps to reach (and struggle with) the latch that keeps the door open. I'd love to have a thingy inside that I pull or twist and SPROING! the door unlatches and swings shut. Either that, or someone tell me how to grow longer arms.... Oh, and on our Designer, the closet could have been made two inches deeper without problems (i.e. bring the sliding doors out a little). As it is, it's just not deep enough for regular clothes hangers without the sliding doors rubbing up against the shoulders of the garments. I lowered the clothes rod and moved it back a hair, which helped a little. The original clothes rod was very flimsy and buckled halfway through our first trip. I replaced it with a sturdier clothes rod and a center brace.
