Flight vs Eagle

Is anyone able to explain or comment on any of the differences between the Flight series and the Eagle series? We have seen the Flight series in person and will be visiting another dealer to check out the Eagle. Looks like many similar floor plans are available in both models. Any major differences between quality, craftsmanship, etc?

The Jayflights have aluminum siding and the Eagles have smooth glass sides. The Eagles have more upgrades and amenities then the Flights. Probably no real differences in quality or craftsmanship. And welcome to the forum!

That's about it, same floors which are wood framed, same roof which is the new Magnum Roof System. The side walls are the primary difference with one being laminated the other stick n' tin. The Eagle has bigger windows in the slide and windows that open at the slide ends. Like the previous poster said, there is no difference in actual quality...

Another consideration is that all those upgrades and the glass siding add considerable weight to the Eagle lines.

You might look at the Whitehawk as an in-between step that falls in the middle of the Flight and Eagle lines.
We almost went with the Whitehawk with the same basic floor plan as our Eagle 284BHS, but we were very put off by the lack of a decent sized awning on the 2013 Whitehawks. Haven't been able to find out if Jayco has done anything about that in the 2014's. Maybe Jayco will get their website updated by Halloween.
