Eagle HT Consideration

We are considering a Eagle HT 5th wheel are the slides electric or hydraulic?
Thanks for any help.

Welcome to JOF

Fairly certain the Eagle HT slides are electric. My BIL's Eagle FW slides are electric.

I'm sure our FW guru's will come along and confirm.

The wardrobe slide is an electric one from Lippert that, after some work. has worked quite well for us. The other one is a standard electric slide and we haven't had any problems with it. We have a 2012 HT 26.5 RLS with the stand-alone dinette and have enjoyed it quite a bit so far. It is very easy to pull and park, takes no time at all, basically, to hook up and unhook at the campground. I talked the dealer into putting two batteries in ours and I think that helps when camping "dry" with no hookups. We pull ours with a 2012 GMC 2500HD D/A crew cab, short "standard" bed and the trailer has had a hitch welded onto it so we can take our boat with us when going camping and fishing. I have a few pictures of the "train" if you would like to see them. Email me at jalichty@bresnan.net and I'll send them to you.
