Welcome, I just joined a couple of day ago. We go to get our SuperLite HT 26.5 RLS paid for on Friday. Will leave it at the dealer until after April 15 since we aren't planning on going anywhere until then anyway.

I thought about going with an HT and really like them but in the end I just didn't want to drill the holes in my box for a mount or lose the space when towing. The odd weekend we do take the quad along so that's where the TT fits the best.

Hello! Congrats on the new trailer.

I wanted to let you know I did see one in person at the RV show this past weekend. They look very nice inside!

I have the model before yours - the 298RES - so I was very interested in what they did to make it a new layout.

Looks like the major difference is the wardrobe slide out in the bathroom/bedroom. This gives you so much more storage than my model.
The door to the bathroom changed, it is in the hallway where mine is on an angle. But I don't see any space taken away or added into the bathroom due to this that would cause concern.
Still has limited counter space in the kitchen and the space between the dining booth/table and frig looks a bit bigger. But I'm not really sure what you could put there other than a broom or umbrella, LOL.
Oh and you lose the corner pantry, but I think you gain more usable storage with your wardrobe slide outs.
Just from a look inside, I think you will be very happy with your trailer.
Congrats again!

Originally we went in to order the 298 but they were discontinued and we had to wait for the 308. I didn't care as much for the lack of clothing storage in the 298 and we were hesitant on ordering it. The loss in the corner pantry wasn't a big deal since the pantry next to the stove in the 308 has the same size one as the one to our previous 25rks and we were never short of room in the kitchen area. I also didn't like losing the big ward in the 298 from our 25rks, it's a good place to put the big bags of dog food for the 2 labs and see that has been incorporated back into the 308. There are no scare lights on the 308 so we asked to have one put in at the time of build as well as remove a portion of center carpet to expose more linoleum and Jayco agreed to doing so. My dealer also confirmed we can order a counter top extension like in some of the other models once we receive it. All in all it looks like it will be good once the missings get put back into it.

Ours is due in sometime early March. Like you, we got caught in the discontinuance of the 298RES, with only dealer stock available, which all dealer models had more options than we wanted. We looked long and hard and settled on the 298RES, but really like the updated 308RETS version!
