Hi all. I just signed papers to buy a Jayco Eagle 330 RSTS today and should be picking it up next weekend. I currently have a KZ Spree 280RLS we are working to sell, and wanted more room, and headroom since I am 67 tall and for tired of whacking my head on doorways and the smoke detector. Really looking forward to the new coach. Did a lot of research and attended many RV shows and dealers in the past year to come to this decision, and hope it lives up to my expectations.

I will be buying a new hitch to bring to the closing since this will be a heavier trailer than my current one, so if anyone knows the height at the top of the coupler when the trailer is level for this model so I can get the initial height set up when it comes in, I would appreciate the help.

Welcom aboard... I am only that tall when I have my cowboy hat on haha...

Thats a big trailer and probably too big to get into the places we like to go to around your neck of the woods... Like the Wichita Mtns North of Lawton and even the little lake back in the woods near Gober TX.

We never got the RV TRAVELING urge. Our biggest fun times is waking up creekside somewhere back in the woods drinking our fresh made bean coffee and watching the fish jump in the creek....

Welcome to the forum, great people and great information hear. You might want to repost your question about the hitch separately with the specific question in the title.
