Choice between Eagle 345BHTS or 325BHQS

Just got the nod from the wife that we can upgrade from our '13 Eagle 314BDS TT to a new fifth wheel when we go to the Hershey RV show this September. Looking the Eagle 345BHTS or the 325BHQS. The 345 is laid out like our 314 which we like but kinda like the living area of the 325 with two sides in that area to open it up a bit. I like the half bath entrance from the outside on the 345. Any opinion on the two from owners would be great. Would love to get the Premier 375 but I think it is a little too heavy for not having a dually and could be a little long for some of the place we go. Thanks for any input in advance. Love the Jayco product!

We really like our 5er we ordered it with every option and no regrets buying this floor plan for a family with kids. The outdoor kitchen is nice sized and the half bathroom in the rear works great for the kids At night. The kids room was the selling point for us, our old camper they were always filling the Livingroom with stuff. Ours is the short run upgraded 2015 model with the extra rear table in the kids room that we really like for a extra place for the kids to eat and play games. We traveled with 9 of us staying in it for two weeks going cross country to Disney and had plenty of storage room. I do like some of the upgrades on the new one outdoor magnetic door latches, auto level, larger shower and master bath layout and the stairs not carpeted going to the master bedroom with hand rail, but for us with little kids I don't like the fireplace in the new model. We pull ours with a newer chevy 2500 duramax with no problems going through the mountains. Good luck on your search.

I definitely like the living room set up on the 325, but I love the size of the outdoor kitchen and bunk area, and the 1/2 bath on our 34.5. I am certain that I personally wouldn't chose the 325 over it. I do wish I was ordering now so I could have some of the awesome upgrades tho, but that wish usually arises every year.

Good luck with choosing.

We are picking up our new 325bhqs next week. We have been waiting for the weather the cooperate in CT to pick it up. We went with the 325 as we enjoy the bigger living area. With the grandchildren we spend more time doing activities at night and the extra slide sealed the deal for us. We started out thinking the 345 would be the one until we found the 325.

We just brought home our new 345 BHTS. Looked at the 325 as well but went with the 345 because of the outside kitchen and 2 nd bath with door to the outside. As we do a lot of traveling, I wanted to stay with slideouts on the port side only because some campgrounds can be a bit tight, especially if you are a transient looking just for a place to drop anchor for a night.

With 3 girls and a 5000 mile trip from Cape cod to Yellowstone and back this summer, the extra bath and big bunkhouse is a must!

Now it's between the 345BHTS and the 375 now but I think the 375 maybe to big for some of the campgrounds we go to and would have to be selective with sites. The 375 is awesome if we could swing it by selling our 314BDS outright and not lose money on trading it in.

We looked at the 375 but it is a beast of a trailer at 43' and 16k loaded you really need a 3500 dually to pull it, or your maxing out any single axel truck. We didn't want to upgrade trucks since we already have a newer 2500 hd truck. The 345 at 39' is still a big 5er and you will be limited at most campgrounds due to low hanging tree limbs or short sites.

That's my hold back on the 375(weight and length). Sad thing there are hardly any 345 around, so I may just have to order one anyway plus I would like the party sofa instead of the separate couch and dinette. Just wish there was a second slide in the bunkhouse. There is a new model coming out 360QBOK was supposed to be late summer and now they said maybe fall.

The 325 has the party couch option and it also has the same outside kitchen as the 345. It does only have the one slide in bunk area but, gives you extra living area space. It's also nice that the TV is opposite the couch and table but, it is missing the 1/2 bath. Which ever you choose I'm sure you will be happy with it.
