I like the model you purchased. However, they are priced exactly the same at $34,995 (sale prices). The dealer reduced the price of the 29.5 to $31,995 as it is a 2014 model. The 2015 29.5 is $34,995 same price as the Eagle 2015 31.5BHDS.


Here is a link to the 2015 Eagle 31.5 BHDS.....

The Eagle Touring Edition is probably our favorite. It has a floorplan similar to the Eagle 31.5 BHDS TT


http://www.richardsonsrv.com/Search-...n-315BHTS.aspx


It probably can be had for $1-2K more than the 29.5.

I like the Eagle very much, but the overall length (37'-3") can be prohibitive in many state parks.

The 29.5 BHDS is 34'-8" but about 4' is in truck bed bringing length to about 30'.


The 7' difference is quite a bit.

The link shows a 314bhds but length of 31'.I haven't had any issues with the overall length at any campgrounds yet,i don't plan on doing state parks so hopefully I wont have the issue of being to long.My other reason to stay away from the 5er was I would lose my bed space for storage,i have a fiberglass cover that I keep firewood or cooler and my fishing poles and tackle,keeps stuff dry and I can lock it,these are things I don't wanna keep in the trailer.Its a tough decision, we also looked at the touring Edition as well as a used Fusion toy hauler,i am 6'3 and the bedroom over the front of the 5er's wasn't friendly with me,Good luck with whatever you pick,they are all nice trailers you are looking at
