Eagle Touring Edition

Wanting to get some opinions on the Eagle Touring Edition. Is this camper a glorified JayFlight? Can't seem to find any info on flor construction.

We are buying the 31.5 BHTS and picking it up tomorrow. The floorplan fit exactly what we were lookin for.

Welcome to JOA

The Eagle Touring Edition is indeed a fantastic Trailer. I have the 28.5BHDS. 31.5 is one heck of a trailer. I really wanted it so bad but again I wasn't willing on giving up my Toyota Tundra as a tow vehicle. With my 28.5BHDS, I am pushing the limits as it is.

There are a few members on here with 31.5. Hopefully, they will chime in. In the meantime, you can look at pictures in my couple of threads below showing the build quality and superior finishes on the Touring Edition.

Really nice setup you have there.

Wish I had the Pin box you have but might be something I add later.

We have had our old Jayco for 8 yrs now and we began to think it was time for an upgrade. Thinking is bad!!!

Riddle family,
Thanks for the compliments. We came from a Travel Trailer. The switch to a 5'er is a completely different world. Towing and handling are the key items. I just can't believe it took me this long.

The MorRyde Pin Box is something nice to have. It eliminates all the bumpy ride down the road.

Please post some pictures of your 31.5 once you pick it up.

Happy camping.
