Jayco Eagle Super Lite HT 26.5 rls

Found and thinking of buying a 2011 model of this 5th wheel. If someone could give me some information about them, good or bad I would be very appreciative.

I'm a satisfied Jayco customer, having owned three (3) of them (a pop-up and 2 5th wheels). Having said that, understand what you're getting with anyone's "super lite" RVs. Except for some very expensive models utilizing lots of composite materials, the super lites generally compromise on their construction materials, heavier options, etc. to achieve their light weight. Cabinetry will generally be particle board/plastic veneer, roof decks and floors will be thinner, there will be less insulation and durability will suffer accordingly. If you can live with this, then the Jayco is probably as good or better than its direct competition.

love that model

we actually bought this model, 2014, but then had to back out of the deal. we keep our camper in a campground in storage, and were incorrectly told they can move a 5th wheel from storage, only to find out that they can't. we then bought the eagle 316RKDS.

however, we seriously looked at the HT 26.5 RLS and loved it! I think the quality of the unit was as good as any other unit on the market, and doesn't Jayco have the Glacier package on most all their models? unless you're planning on camping in super cold weather, I would definitely get the 5th.

we loved that layout, absolutely loved it. the bedroom was so roomy!

good luck with your decision! Theresa & Rick

We bought our 2013, new, this past spring, and put close to 5,000 miles on it. It has been superb. Not a single issue that I didn't do to it myself. Yes, not as "rugged" as the heavier models, but it seems to be built intelligently with an eye toward longevity. I've been through the "guts" of it all a lot, and haven't seen a single spot where it was underbuilt or badly put together. There seems to be a reason Jayco offers a 2 year warranty, when most brands don't. Based on my sample, I wouldn't hesitate to buy the one you saw.
