2011 vs 2012 Changes

I read on another forum that Jayco has changed the content of the 2012 Jayco Eagle. One of the items was the stainless sink gone for another plastic type material. The one time torgue lug nuts for many torgue lug nuts. Changed out the Corian counter tops for another type of surface.
It's the elimination of items like this that make some of the things I didn't like but was willing to overlook make me wonder all over again.

Don't believe everything you hear on the internet!

There are many very good changes to the 2012 Eagle.

They are going to a "Stonecast Kitchen Sink", that doesn't sound like plastic to me. Not sure what you mean about the lug nuts. Counter tops are the same, different colour.

A few additions: New front cap (looks like Pinacle), battery disconnect in battery compartment, step light, TV bracket in basement, digital thermostat, keyless entry option, etc

The bedroom looks very similar to the Pinacle also.

The 2012 is BETTER in many ways!

Call a Jayco dealer and they can give you a list of the upgrades.



Look at these pictures. It's the first 2012 I could find on the net.

Looking at the pics and comparing it to my 2011, I do not see any major differences. I prefer the 2011 colors. It is a great floorplan.

From a Jayco dealer.

Also, if you build one on rvdirect it has the 2012 options listed.

I should be getting my 2012 next week.

The 11 and 12 both look like awesome trailers to me. I do like a stainless sink, but from the photos posted above, even tho the counter tops may not be Corian brand, they are the same type of stuff from a different manufacturer. On the positive side, the bedroom storage is much improved. Besides a larger closet with upper and lower hanger bars (twice the hanging capacity) and deeper shelves, you also gain two bookcase type shelve units over the window with space for the TV in between, which leaves a more accessible two door cabinet where the TV was in the old Eagle.

It also looks like the baggage doors are slam type with air struts. An improvement in my opinion. Also, what's not to like about a digital thermostat?

I don't have much of an opinion about Torque and Go, lug nuts. I suppose they would be a positive.

Anyway, I am sure am looking forward to seeing mine. Should be in around mid July.

I've been surfing the dealers but what few details I've found are a bit sketchy. This site I found has a fair number of photos:

http://www.ricksrv.com/rv/Jayco/Trav..._Eagle_330RLTS

Here's another one:

http://www.camperlandok.com/rv/jayco...ERIES_330_RLTS

I know these are for a TT and this is the fiver forum but they will give an idea of some of the changes and the sites may have similar photos for the fivers.

Interesting

Thanks for the responses - It doesn't sound like the changes are as negative as I was lead to believe. I'm not the type to take what someone tells me as gospel, I'm usually the researcher who checks everything to death.
But found out some good info from the responses, good information. Thanks

Thanks for the link. I was going nutz trying to find out anything about them.

I had to laugh at their comparison chart. Stainless rated only medium for heat resistance and cleanability while resin rated excellent? Puh-leeze! This isn't to say Stonecast isn't any good; my bathroom cultured marble sink has an acrylic surface and, after 15 years, still looks new.
