We brought it home...

My wife and I brought home our brand new Eagle Super Lite on Saturday. We've had a good time loading it up with the stuff from our old camper, and just getting familiar with it. Our daughters couldn't stand it and had to sleep in it last night, and I enjoyed testing out the couch while watching the replay of the Detroit Lions preseason game on Sunday.

What a difference from our 2003 26' Coachman Cascade (no slide). The kids are particulary excited about the J-cubes, and the bunkhouse in general.

Our 1st trip is scheduled for Labor Day weekend in Ludington Mi.

I know it looks like all other Eagle Super Lite's but here's a picure...

Beautiful trailer. We just had our 2013 26RLS out this past weekend for the first time. I am surprised
that the Eagle, which I understood to be the top of the line for Jayco TTs, doesn't have a power jack?
When I did our PDI, the salesman was showing me how to hook-up the TT and TV. I told him that my
trailer should have a a power jack with the Elite package. He went inside to look at the build sheet and
confirmed that it should and that the factory missed it. They put one on before I left the dealership.

Looks good. Enjoy it. My kids and myself are the same way. Had to sleep in them before the first camping trip. Just the smell inside says camping to us. The new Jayco we have doesn't have the "new Camper Smell" like the last ones we've had, but it's all good.

Enjoy your new Eagle. We just bought ours home too. We have the labor Day weekend booked for our first trip out with it. The family is excited, especially since it is our first TT. It is the Eagle 284BHS.
