Eagle

So I was just on the Jayco web site looking around. Then I noticed by the Eagle 314 BDS it says dealer stock only. Doesnt that usually mean they are discontinuing that model. That would suck, dont wanna see the 314 discontinued. Why would they do away with such a popular floor plan.

I had my eye on a 314BDS too, I liked that it was ~33'not ~36' like the 314BHDS. For us, that 3' costs us a couple of parks we really enjoy. 33' was pushing it, 36'eliminates them.

Crabman, I see your point about it not looking different, but when Jayco updated the site for 2014, the specs on the 314BDS changed. In 2013 and prior it was listed on the website and brochure as overall length of 32'7" & ULW of 7465 now the sites shows both BDS and BHDS as 35'7" and ULW 7805.

Wow, that is a substantial difference, particularly in length. I did not compare the stats just gave the floorplans a quick lookover. The fact that you can walk around the bed looks like an improvement, but the price for that must have been a longer trailer!
