Just ordered 30.5MBOK

We just ordered an Eagle HT 30.5MBOK, our first 5th wheel. The dealer said it will be a 2019 and, from what he’s heard, here are some of the 2019 changes:
  • Fridge brand change to Dometic
  • Fridge panel change from stainless to raised wood pannelling
  • Solid surface countertops now contain metal flake (yikes)
  • Sinks are now under mount even for regular countertop
  • Dexter axles
  • Bathroom cabinetry is whitewash

We were quoted 8-12 weeks. We have our fingers crossed that it’s 8 as we have a big trip coming up in 9!

My build date is scheduled for April 20th.
Curious as to where we’ll fall in the production change.

I would consider changing that travel date. Even if the rig is shipped on week 8 it will take more than a week to get to the dealer and be prepped, not counting fixing the defects you find on the walk through.

If you rush through the PDI you may regret it later on. Plenty of stories of folks taking delivery of units with issues and then not being able to get them fixed.

Yeah, it’s hopeful thinking. We have our existing TT to use if it doesn’t work out.

Picking up our 30.5MBOK this Friday. It arrived here in Florida last Thursday which was exactly 7 weeks from order and our Dealer said that was about a week or 2 faster than normal. Good luck & enjoy once you get it.....

We picked up our new 2017 30.5MBOK a couple weeks ago and took it out for our first long weekend this past weekend. Loved it! Honestly haven't found many things needing to be fixed. most are very minor and stuff i'm just going to take care of while it's parked at home. Love this floorplan with the L-Shaped Dinette, we put the table up and everyone had their own places to sit and we were all facing each other. the living room space in this one is one of the best floorplans available in our opinion (without spending a lot more money). I wouldn't recommend pulling with a 1/2 ton, but my 3/4 ton truck pulled this trailer like it wasn't even there, even going up 7% grades. (ok, it felt the 7% grade but i wasn't slowing down.)

Congrats on the new Trailer!

Just what I wanted to hear!! The living room in this model is the big thing that attracted us and having a bunk room that I can close the door and not see the grandkids stuff if we don't want to impressed us. Enjoy............

IMO, you are smart to have a back up plan on that next trip. There are many sad stories of owners being in a hurry to get a new rig without a proper PDI and shakedown cruise.
