Nice trailer set up. but the truck always feels the trailer back there. Especially when you get to a hill. I had a Ram 2500 with the 5.7 and loved it. But for towing you cant beat a diesel for towing. Best of luck with your new trailer it is SHARP. Wonder why they went back to white on the Eagle. And I am not dogging your truck I LOVED my Ram 2500. It was even the same color as yours.

Jayco went back to the light color because they had too many problems with the dark brown fading to a gray color.

There were lots of issues with the brown fading. I understand Jayco was repainting lots of brown front caps under warranty. Key is to keep it waxed with a good wax to filter out the UV from the sun.

The jury is out on the windows right now. We took delivery of the trailer on October 10th, did the PDI, winterized and towed it to where we store our trailer for the winter. Truthfully on our last two TTs we rarely opened the windows. If nothing else the frameless windows look good.

Congratulations on the new Eagle! I've had mine for 9 months, now, and just LOVE it! Hope your experience is as pleasurable as mine!

Strange... My 2015 284BHBE still has the brown cap...

By the way, I have a 2014 RAM CC 5.7 with 3.92 and it tow really well! It has a lot of power, even on long uphill!

Hope our brown cap doesn't start fading, warranty just ended in Aug. We do enjoy our Eagle, like some of the new features they have now.
