2017 Jayco Eagle/HT Features and Inhancements

Since there is already a Whitehawk thread going, I thought I would start a Eagle TT/HT one. It appears the changes in the doc I received may apply to both.

I had heard from my dealer that there may be even more substantial changes going on with the Eagle line but they don't seem to be mentioned here. I am talking things like Residential Fridge, auto leveling, etc.

Also appears to me like they are also going to Gray on the Eagle line as well but taking it yet a step further because there is an entry under "exterior" that mentions an "automotive look" where awnings, roof, trim, etc. will all match.

Here ya go.

Thanks for the info, this is what I have been looking for. I'm in the market to buy in the next few months and have been really curious what the changes were going to be. I can't imagine they won't offer a residential fridge in the larger units. Self Leveling would be a nice option. We'll have to see about the Gray Exterior, maybe similar to the Open Range which is another unit I have been looking at.

Looks like you are up in Michigan? What dealer to you use there?

I actually got this info from a dealer in Iowa who were the only ones already listing 2017's. Another dealer, Terrytown RV in Grand Rapids, MI said he had a price list as well but all prices on that were TBD. My local dealer is Gillette Interstate RV and they were the ones that 1st told me about the fridge and other big changes. Still waiting to hear back from them so I sent a few emails to other dealerships to see what I could get and this is what I got so far. I will be rattling Gillette's cage tomorrow when I get back in town to see if they have anything new.

I've noticed the dealer in Iowa listing the 2017's as well, just haven't been contacting any of them. I purchased my current trailer from Gillette's as well and was happy with them. Now almost 2 years after I purchased my trailer I was offered what I paid for it new from Gillette's on trade in for a new trailer from a local dealer. Not bad. Luckily with being so far away, I have had minimal issues and would definitely make the 12 hour one way trip to purchase from them again if the savings are as great as they were on my current trailer. I will be emailing them in the next few days as well to see if they have any updates on the 2017's. Really curious about the outside colors/styling, I really like the 2016 color schemes.

I got this from my dealer regarding the 2017 Eagle 5'er changes. Some of them look very interesting.

Thanks for posting that. It sure looks like Jayco is planning on standardizing their builds/options across the entire Eagle lineup from TT's to HT's to 5th wheels.

Most of what is on your 5th wheel doc reads exactly the same as the one I posted for the TT/HT lines with just a few differences.

Time to shake the tree again at my local dealer and see if any more fruit falls out.

I agree. We ordered a 355MBQS last month and just found out that it will be a 2016. I am actually kind of glad as it looks like they have changed the middle bunk slide to resemble what others call a den. After looking at other models with the den we choose the Jayco since it looks to have the best sleeping area. Some of the other options like the "soft close" drawers, upgraded 48" HDTV, upgraded mattress and covered central command center would be nice to have but are something we can live without.

More "fruit" has fallen from the shaken tree! It sure appears to me that Jayco is trying to standardize the options list and styles between the TT, HT, and full size 5th wheel models because when I combine the previous features and enhancements list for the TT/HT lines that have been posted previously and the new options lists for the TT/5th wheel lines, the differences are minimal and logical such as auto leveling on the 5th wheels but not on the TT. The only other "major" option difference I see is the new Sani-con turbo waste management system on the 5th wheels. It also appears that they are making the 3rd gen Girard tankless water heater available on all lines as well. My local dealer, Gillette Interstate RV graciously provided me with a copy of the options lists for both the TT and 5th wheel lines. Prices are still TBD, sorry.

Here ya go!

Thank you for posting those build sheets. I'm thinking of a new 355MBQS and will be talking to a dealer in the morning. That will be helpful.

Another user posted a video that shows a 2017 338RETS in all it's glory. Thought I would link to it here for those that might not be following the other thread.
