Jayco Eagle 321RSTS

Hello, I hope that every one are still doing find doing this plandemic but I wanted to ask those who have this 5th wheel. I order a Garmin 785 GPS and since that the dealer still have our 5th wheel in the shop still, after 5 going on 6 months now what is the the total height and length of yours?

When I get it I want to be able to go to my setting and put it in before we go on our trip this summer, we are planning maybe Lake Tahoe and down to some of CA. I still don't know when they are going to get the RV doing but they said that they are working on it now and hopefully maybe we might go down to TX or AZ area or somewhere far.

Anyway guys thank you so much if you know you dimension so I can put it in my new GPS when I get it.

Hi Big1
Our 2017 321rsts as measured a week ago is 13 ft 2 in when dead level. When hooked up to our truck truck is dead level and so is trailer.
Now mines going to get slightly taller. Have one bad spring that has flattened over an inch compared to other 3. LCI has covered cost of 4 springs and I am covering the uplift to 3500lb lb springs. With new springs likely 13Ft 4 in at most.
As for length.... Trailer from front of bubble to rear ladder 32 ft 2 inches.
From kingpin to bumper 36 ft 10 inches

My 321 measures 13’2” with a low profile AC in the front bedroom. Was 13’7” before I made Jayco swap it out as it was over the legal height limit.

Okay great and thank you so much, so I would be safe to put in 13'.5" high to be safe, do I need to put more to cover me at any low bridges and I guess with my ram 3500 CC SB I will be safe if I put total length of 53'?


I'm going with 37' for my RV length and about 16' from the middle of my bed to the noise of my truck will be 53', will I be safe to say? Thank you guys again, this is a big help.

If you plan on CA, bring lots of money for gas!

Think you'll like the 785. Only negatives I've experienced so far is sometimes glare on the screen and slight vibration in the videos due to the heaviness of the unit causing vibration in the windshield mount. Don't leave in the sun while parked.

Come to Arizona...cheaper and more fun than CA.

Will do I will only go through a small section of CA to go down to Sparks NV the wife and I have talk about going to AZ many time, where is a good place to go?

I search long and hard before I decided to go with the 785 Garmin and I read some mix reviews on them so I figure that giving any of them have their slight issue.

I look at the 890 but I didn't want that 8" screen in the front window along with all of my other gadgets I know that the 785 is not too much smaller and the new on are even bigger so I figure if I run that with Waze I should be okay.

If you are going to stay in Sparks, check out Sparks Marina RV park…first class service. Going south on 95 to Hawthorne….Whiskey Flats RV Park, another nice place to stay.

Or East on 80 to Winnemucca, New Frontier RV Park. Have a fun trip…stay away from low bridges…

Grand Canyon of course, Sedona, Lake Powell. Farther south Kartchner Caverns State Park is awesome, then Tombstone and Biebee.

I use 13'7" for our North Point 363 FKWS just in case...it measures 13'4" with our low profile MACH 8Plus ACs, but with road bounce possibilities, added a couple of
inches just to be sure...saved us twice, at least, with low bridges....

On AZ location, we just spent three weeks at Verde Valley RV Park, Thousand Trails park, nice, clean, fairly large sites... and spent almost every day doing something in the area with everything within about two hours...Grand Canyon (we actually got a hotel room for one night to extend our touring there...awesome!!)...Sedona and Red Rock Park is a must, lots of hiking...a Gun Range that lets you rent machine guns...I did the Browing M1919 .30 cal, ...what a blast literally...Cliff Dwellings, great mountain scenic drives, Verde River, hiking all over the place...and fairly decent temperatures... Defiantly a must do and there are several other RV parks that are in the area with plenty of boon docking areas as well... great location for all around activities and relaxing...IMO

Okay, I'm interested now that one park do look good and at one time we were looking to go down to AZ but we didn't go of course, can't wait to get our RV back so we can start planning.

I think that this is the one I will look closely at, we do at least one long trip and the other are short trip right around 300 to 400 miles great thank you.

On the GPS what kind to you have? Now if I set it to like 13'.7" how do the GPS work, like if a bridge is 14'.0 will it let me go under it or will it give me a warning? I get the Garmin 785 next week so I want to put in all of my setting before or about time we get our RV.

Down in AZ is where also I received my CHL but I know that you don't need one there it let me carry in other states. If I'm not a member at Thousand Trails will they still let me make an appointment?

I have the Garmin BC30 as it has wireless backup camera - that you
set the dimensions for you RV...and yes it provides warnings and routes you around low bridges/objects that are in the database...so far it has caught
most of the low bridges in areas we have traveled as when it calculates the route it plans a route that fits your RV's height and weight... so far so good with this one... I check it against RV LIFE PRO, RV TRIP WIZARD SAFE ROUTE app (a must have in my opinion) for every trip, about 30 trip legs now from east coast to AZ where we are now, and only had one route difference that RV SAFE ROUTE advised that GARMIN GPS didn't...

This park you don't have to be a TT member...think the cost is $30-52 depending
on 30/50 amp, hook ups, etc...

I just uploaded a review on Campground Reviews web site, and there are other reviews and pics there as well...you can reserve online also from Thousand Trails website........also forgot, there is a Winery right next door that's not bad and offers Kayaking tours on the Verde River - nice swimming hole on Verde River right next to this park as well....

Okay that sound like a place that I want to camp out at, I will bring this up to the boss and see what's she think and start planning a nice long trip there.

I would be a good trip for us we are in the PNW area and I think that it's about 1,400 miles from where we are living but that trip will be worth it for me. Campground Review I have sign up there so I will log into my account and check out the reviews and thank you.

I will probably if she like it plan a 8 days trip there so we can enjoy some of the places and eat some good food there. There are some good restaurant near by I take it I love foods it's my second pass time, lol.

If you have a second air conditioner in the bedroom, the height is 13'8". We measured on flat surface, one person on the ground & the other atop the RV.
