Canadian Standards

Does anyone know what is meant by Canadian Standards which is listed as an option on the Eagle? I'm going to assume it has to do with insulation.

Also, what has been your experience with the Maxxis 8008 tire upgrade? Is it worth the more than $500 cost? Are they worth that much more than the original tires?

Lots of questions, I know, but I haven't been able to find answers on the website.

There are some subtle differences in the elec and plumbing codes. Nothing to do with insulation.

It has more to do with safety (location of the fire extinguisher), propane, tongue load, etc. Some searching on the internet will reveal all the details. If a unit is to be sold/bought in Canada, it must comply with Canadian Standards. Just towing in or through Canada it is not required.
...snip.
I can't help with your other questions, sorry.

I tried to order Canadian standard on my trailer in 2013 and was told it was not an available option on US bound trailers.

I understand it it mostly due to electrical codes.

Agree with the other posters. It is built to Canadian plumbing/ electrical codes.
Nothing to do with weather.

I purchased my first trailer new in Northern California, it came with candian standards, including the maple leaf flag sticker near the front door. After I removed the sticker I asked what that was all about. The dealership told me they order it on all stock units, this is California mind you, since they sell so many new units to snowbirds heading north and south through the state.

I'm not sure why your dealership said it wasn't available, I can assure you in 2012 it certainly was in Northern California.

I never learned what the actual code difference were, appearantly is was more than USA requires not different since mine met both specifications.

My 2016 was built with the Canadian Standards option. I asked the Jayco rep what was different, he told me it was the propane system had a few different fittings, electrical system could not use any aluminum wire and grounding was different, plumbing drains used a different type of PVC pipe. Nothing of any benefit for USA users but if the unit was imported into Canada it must meet the standards or it won't be licensed or issued a title.

Google knows all...it is the additional charges for a CSA (Canadian Standards Association) inspection/authorization similar to UL (Underwriters Labs).

"CSA stands for Canadian Standards Association. Originally they were responsible for establishing norms in the Canadian market. UL stands for Underwriters Laboratory, and they used to be responsible for establishing the norms for the US market"

From another forum:
"The Canadian standards option is only for units sold in Canada. I made an enquiry of Jayco and received the following reply noting 4 items. 1. plumbing drain lines made of different type of plastic and use a different type of glue (yellow verses black), 2. extra ground wire on power bathroom vent and on range hood, ground wire used in ROMEX (120 volt wiring) is a gauge lighter on CSA units and 4. wire looms and propane lines may be routed differently."

CSA is also called CUL. I don't know if they officially changed the name or not and CSA might still appear on some products, but CSA/CUL is the Canadian version of UL in the U.S.A.
