2018 330RSTS Eagle pics

Ran across a website that has 2018 pics up of the Eagle 330RSTS TT. Changes I see are a slight modification of the front cap Decal that now has "Eagle series" underneath the EAGLE name. Bathroom cabinetry is now a lighter shade than the rest so wondering if the first 2018's off the line will be a mix and then later on, all cabinetry will go to the lighter finish.

Other changes I saw were an upgraded Kitchen sink/faucet, bead board in Kitchen replaced with smooth paneling, 6" backsplash added by stove, rear ceiling vent is still NOT powered, and most important, looks like they raised the GVW of the Eagle TT's from the 2017 model's 11250# to 11750# in 2018 which should allow a higher cargo carrying capacity than the 2017's.

Here's a link to a 2018 Eagle 330RSTS that has a few better pics of some of the changes as well as the different layout.

The Eagle's are a very nice TT...., but I dropped it off my new TT "short list" recently because their weight/price have steadily increased in the last coupe of years.

Also, there is a 658lb difference between the published UVW and it's "as-shipped" UVW (9,410lbs vs 10,068lbs)...., 11,250lb GVWR.

Definitely entering into "diesel" territory if one ventures off the flats

I agree with the getting close to diesel territory. If the DW decides she wants to venture off our normal "beaten" path, then I may have to consider a diesel but for now, my 2015 GMC 3/4 ton CC SB 4WD 6.0 w/4:10 gasser does ok with it up and down I-75 between home and our seasonal site in Florida.

As for the weight differences, it appears from a pic on a sticker in one of the links I posted, the 2018's have upped their GVWR to 11,750 so that should help some with the CCC. Our 2017 has a CCC of just over 1100#, which is surprisingly very close to the posted weights on the sticker on our trailer. It might not be anywhere near the CCC of some others but that works ok for us and I just put all the heavy tools, etc. in the truck bed instead of the pass thru.

Thanks Jon- Luc
You will get the answer to that question by calling Jayco, make sure you have your S/N when you call.

I just picked up my 2018 this week. I traded a 2011 and there have been a lot of changes from 2011. I still running into them.

We have a 2017 was built last of march, the only difference we see is the fire place surround area, has a sound bar now and a different wood look ( good idea) and the Kitchen sink .... ours has the Auto level system ( Works great)

Herewego,

Ours was built in mid October. A few other changes I see besides the fireplace/soundbar and the sink/faucet are that the bead board in the Kitchen area both behind the stovetop and the other countertop area is now replaced with a smooth wood paneling and they added a 6" tile backsplash behind the stovetop like was already in the bathroom. Then the cabinetry in the bathroom was a very dark coffee stain where this one shows a lighter, almost light gray color/stain.

As for outside, the "Jayco" decals now says "Eagle Series" underneath the word Jayco and I no longer see the holder for the entry door so it probably means that door is now on struts and only opens out about 90 degrees instead of all the way back against the trailer door.

The door is friction type no struts and the wind will not close it will open all the way. Outdoor shower is now on both sides not just one.

Not sure if the 17 had this but the 18 has a third gray water tank for washer.
under propane tanks two holders for extra battery's 2 in that spot and in front of propane spot for 2 battery's.

The auto level is so so nice just push the auto button and its totally level.

Good to hear about the friction type door vs. struts. I, as well as a number of people I know don't like it when the door only opens part ways.

Yes, the 17's have the 3rd gray tank as well as the battery tray under the propane tanks. I currently have two Group 29 12v's down there.

As for the auto level, I have been in contact with BAL to see if I could have it added afterwards. I missed being able to add the BAL system to our build by just a week or two. The BAL rep told me that he believed that Jayco was using 2 different frame builds, one with extra cross member support for those trailers being built with the auto leveling and another for one without the extra cross members for ones without. He also thought that there might be issues on where holding tanks, and other items underneath being in different locations on a trailer that wasn't built with the auto leveling. I am currently awaiting on a reply from Jayco to see if this is truly the case or not because that will determine if I can even have the system installed aftermarket.

Are the shutoff valves at the end of the washer prep lines still a PIA to get to? Why Jayco did it the way they did on my 17 just baffles me to no end. I have to bleed air from those lines at least once a month during our seasonal stay or stop turning the water on and off when we leave the site. The buildup of air in that line from turning the water on/off at the spigot seems to find it's way to those lines and eventually creates a big air "bubble" in that line. That in turn causes pressure fluctuations that cause the Girard to think someone turned on a hot water faucet when all they did was flush the toilet!

We have the Bal Auto level, it works Great,
we have 3rd gray water for Washer,
the only place there is a tile back splash is the Bathroom sink, however I will be adding tile to the stove top area, to lighten up the dark wood paneling . we like to open the door all the way, so I would not want to change that. we added the controls for the solar, the pre wire was good but was not where the sticker was ... good thing I had a camera that I use when looking into engine cylinders,was able to open the wall enough to put the camera prob in and find the wires .
