I have a HT. Looked at both but the floorplan I liked was only in the HT. My counter is laminate vs a solid surface. And I know the tanks are smaller. Outside of that some things are a little fancier in the Eagle. That's about all I know. I'm sure others on here will add more. I love my HT and never felt that I wished we bought an Eagle. Welcome!

From what I remember when we looked ( and selected the Eagle )

Eagle has 85 gallons of fresh water and 2 grey holding tanks

Power room up ft with steel floor to handle larger battery capacity

Extra storage cabinets

Dual pane windows (option)

Rear cargo tray and gas grill

Corian counter tops

I believe HT's are made lighter with less wood. At least that's what I gathered when trying to decide. I had a F150 at the time and was gonna be completely content with an HT trailer. Then we saw the Eagle and our mind was made up at that point to go with that series and upgrade my vehicle to a 3/4 ton. Eagles do seem to have..how do you say..higher quality appointments. Homelike..so to speak.

I'm obviously bias.

The HTs have a lower front profile which reduces the pin weight. I'm sure there are other things but that is one.
