Eagle 284BHBE - 758 lb difference between base vs. actual weight

Factory shows a base 284BHBE as weighing 6605 lbs, however we just got one that lists 7363 lbs..

Granted we did get nearly every option, however that amount of weight difference surprises me.

This clearly shows why you need to go off the Yellow Sticker if it's available.

The yellow sticker on my 2015 Eagle 284BHBE is 7395 pounds. I never believe the manufacturers literature when it comes to any published weights.

I would expect the published weight is for a bare trailer, no options, extras, battery or propane. Might even be a pre production unit that will differ from the production models in a few aspects. Even an expected weight during design isn't too far fetched.

Interesting info..... how do you like the floorplan so far? We have been looking at the Jayflight version of the same plan.

The Jay flight 28BHBE is a great trailer. Very happy with ours. We are currently loading up for a 10 day boondocking trip. The floor plan works very well with grandchildren. They love the bunks. This is not our first long trip as it is a 2015. We had a few minor fit & finish problems that were taken care of by our dealer (Voyager RV. Winfield, BC). Everything is working great. No issues with appliances. I did have to fix the electrical connections at the slide motor (loose marreťes), but I found that on a routine inspection so no downtime on that one. All in all we are happy campers.
Happy Camping everybody.

Our 2015 Eagle 284BHBE is our 3rd TT. So far the best floorplan for our needs.
Our kids come along from time to time and the full size bunks work well for us. The main seller for us was the large bathroom and large shower.

We have been out on the road using it for 4 out of the last 6 weeks traveling a little over 2500 miles. So far only very minor issues that are not worth taking it back to the dealer. I'll fix any minor issues as they arise.

I concur - we just got an Eagle 284BHBE and we love it. Second TT for us, but great floorplan. Like gcloss, the bathroom and shower was a huge selling point. Bunks are great for the kids, big U-dinette and lots of storage - you have the entire underside of the lower bunk and it's accessible from inside and out.

We also had a few minor fit and finish items. The main AC ceiling vent inside was mis-aligned and one of the screws wasn't anchored. Easy fix to move it over and re-set it, then fill in the small holes from the previous screw holes. We have a leak in the shower were the caulk on the outside of the door doesn't come down all the way, but I'll fix that when we're home. Nothing else of note. Overall, compared to everything we looked at, Jayco has a pretty good unit. Many other brands had a very cheap feel.
