HTX line questions

Hi to the group!

We're beginning to think about our next jayco, and a FW seems like where I'd like to land.

My question is regarding the "HTX" and "HT" lines.

I presume the HTX is using similar construction methods as the "SLX" travel trailer line; instead of floor joists - are they using monolithic slab floor systems?

In the SLX and I presume the HTX - the wall construction won't be the "traditional" studs, but instead a monolithic wall that is routed.

My Jayflight has heavy joists and heavy studs. My buddies 287SLX is much lighter, although of similar size.

So, am I totally wrong when I think the "traditionally" constructed FW's start at the Eagle line?

Looking for a bunkhouse sorta places you back into the HT line, anyways... so I suppose its a moot point.

But previous experience with the monolithic floor system has given me a very bad experience, and the idea that my 'Flight has actual floor joists makes me feel much better about repairability.

Sorry for the long winded post.

Thanks for reading!
