Ok, Eagle 05 Coming In!

We are a Canadian family that loves to spend time together and travel with a huge Love for Disney World. However we quickly learned that with 3 kids now aged 4-10 that trips like that no longer come cheap. Having seen this coming for a while now we started our research about 3 years ago and took the plunge at the end of July and bought a 2017 Jayco Greyhawk 31fs. The wife and I being Spaceballs fanatics we naturally had to baptize the rv "Eagle 5". Neither my wife nor I had ever towed anything at all in our lives therefor the Class C made sense to us. The layout works great for us as well giving all 3 kids their own space. ( oldest over the cab and 2 youngest in the bunks, not to mention they all have their own tv's) we picked up the coach on August 12 and have been out twice so far. Few minor items have come up, nothing serious and mainly cosmetic. That was the Reason it was important to us to get it now as opposed to the spring so that our Dealer could do the warranty fixes over the winter. This forum has been great so far as I have learned a lot and am looking forward to participate more in the future.
