Is the Eagle Super Lite HT a new model?
I got the best deal(feb 2011) on my Eagle 321RLTS at Hayes in Longview Tx since your comeing this way.I looked at several dealors in the DFW area and my son who works for a very large credit union up there did some dealing for us and they just couldnt beat Hayes.
I am loving this 5th wheel.Quality is pretty good and the dealer did a great job setting up for my truck.

Our Keystone 5er (Mountaineer) had a Lippert frame with hydraulic slides. You get the worst of everything. You can have electric problems or you can have hydraulic problems. At least with Jayco it is all electric.

Go to the Keystone owners group and you WILL NOT buy a keystone.. just compare the unhappy posts Keystone VS Jayco...
You know that rear kitchens are very hard on dishes... you will always have to be careful opening a cupboard door after traveling with a RK. BTDT.

Is there a location to install a TV in the bedroom of the 26.5RKS?

Seann, belonging to the MOC was very helpful to me with our Mountaineer. Very nice group of people. Unfortunately I experienced just about every problem but the broken frame one. When I first logged on there four years ago I began to wonder what the heck I had gotten myself into. I am very happy to be here.

You can't go wrong with a Jayco. I purchased a 2010 29.5RKS and yes there are a few little things I dealt with but nothing major and all well covered without question.
