Question 2012 298RES Eagle Super Lite

Hi all...
Looking at the 2012 298RES and was wondering if anyone who may have one can tell me if there are TV hookups, or a place to put a TV in the bedroom at all. Doesn't really show on the floorplans.

Also, any suggestions, complaints or comments on that particular TT would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Mike

I believe you can only get this model from current dealer stock. The 308RETS supercedes the 298RES. We put in an offer for 298RES from the factory last fall only to be informed that they weren't making any more. We went w/ the 308RETS and love it.

You could use a "stud finder" to see that you hit the right spot. I'm sure the sticker is just slapped on there.

Hmm, aren't these some sort of aluminum studs in this model? I would be a little hesitant to drill or drive anything into these (not knowing much about them). Also, aren't they thinner than the wooden studs they put in the other Jayco models (like the Jay Flights)?

I just put a TV in my 2011 298RES. I called Jayco and they recommend #10x3/4" or #10x1"
screws for mounting. There is plywood between the studs to support the TV. Hope this helps.

Yeah, I am aware that this is a "discontinued" model. The exact unit I am looking at was used twice by people who enjoyed camping so much that they're upgrading their TV and getting a large 5th wheel. Between that, and it being discontinued, I'm thinking I'm going to get a pretty sweet deal.
