Help from Eagle Owners Needed - Looking to buy one

I am looking for any info on the Eagle Super Lite HT 26.5RKS. This is one of seven models I have on my final list for a new Fifth Wheel. Any info good or bad is appreciated.

I have done some searches, but have not turned up anything yet.

Welcome to the Jayco Owners Forum Reubenray! There are several Eagle owners here. What are your other six choices? Are they all 5'ers? Have fun shopping!

We seriously considered a Keystone product when searching for our new bunkhouse. One company we considered went out of business leaving us to narrow our list to the Keystone and Jayco. We found very little in the way of bad reviews for Jayco and came to realize that overall, Jayco puts out a quality product. The customer service is excellent and the 2 year warranty was a plus! However, the reviews for Keystone wasn't all that great and there were *lotsa* them. After reading about every "hit" on google for Keystone reviews, many owners complained about cheap workmanship, leaking roofs, and disapproval of customer service dealing with warranty issues.

How exciting though to be shopping for a new rv! Hopefully you will get some good input from Eagle owners here. Let us know what you wind up doing!

The two year warranty was one big plus of us. The biggest issue I have deciding on which one to get is I cannot find any locally to look at. I live North of New Orleans and have only seen the Flagstaff so far. I will be making trips to the Dallas and Houston area at some point to look.

Is the Eagle Super Lite HT a new model?

I think the length of the warranty gives some indication of what the manufacturer thinks of their own product.

I did a quick "google" and didn't get any hits on a 2009... so maybe so. How 'bout it Eagle owners, what are your likes/dislikes with your Jayco Eagle 5'er?

One word: FRAME!

IMHO, stay away from Lippert frames - Jayco uses top quality frames for their price...

I love my Eagle; even though I had a few minor issues (some still being remedied). Jayco has been awesome to deal with.
