Retired the 2005 Eagle 278FBS and took delivery last week of a 2018 Jay Flight 24RBS. Spent 12 years upgrading the '05' Eagle now I get to start all over with the 24RBS.
The 24RBS base unit floor plan:
I ordered the 24RBS with the optional table/4-chairs knowing that I would only be using 2 chairs. I planned on relocating the table/chairs thus allowing some wiggle room for a Lazy Boy wall hugger recliner which would be much more comfortable then the small sofa during extended stay travel.
Next spring I plan on looking for a different dining table with a radius drop-leaf that will allow a little better access for the second chair around the table. I reused the same four screws to anchor the table table in it's new location and did the same with the chair(s) anchor straps. I'm considering using the extra anchor straps from the chairs I removed for the recliner...., but may not need them.
The base 24RBS came with an outside stove/sink that was a pullout style, and it also had a shelf but wasn't very user friendly considering all the open inaccessible space above it.
I don't use outside kitchens and planned to utilize the space for additional outside cargo storage. My '05' Eagle had a similar outside cargo space that I stored items I used on a daily/regular basis and used the pass-thru storage area for items not used as frequently.
I removed the stove/sink drawer assembly after disconnecting all the water/drain/LP lines......., actually a fairly simple task. The difficult task was removing the shelf, it's like they built the trailer around it!
Once the area was cleared out and and all the connecting supply lines cap, I installed a plastic 3-drawer unit and a couple of other devices to support/contain my "stuff".
This new storage area is located to the rear of the trailer, so I did anchor some of the main storage devices. The 3-drawer unit I screwed in place and used Velcro to keep the drawers from taking flight. Other items where placed such that they couldn't move around.
