Talking New Member Looking for New RV.

So I'm new to the forums but not new to RVing. I currently sold my 2002 Skyline 23ft travel trailer and am looking for a new one and have narrowed it down to a few options and thought hey what better place to ask what people thought about these RV's than here?

First one is the Eagle by Jayco either the 257RBS or the 266RKS models. Second is the Winnebago newer ultralight 27RBDS. Those are the three that I'm considering. Have also looked at the Cougars the 27RLSWE and 27RBSWE.

I'm at the final countdown for getting one I already have my spots reserved for the next 6 camping outings so I need to make a purchase this month. Thanks to all input and opinions i may get.

I don't think you can go wrong with the Jayco. Nice units & excellent quality from a solid company. We had a Cougar 5-r & it was a good mid-level RV. Winnebago makes great motorized units & the towables are a recent venture for them. Even with the excellent track record for their motorhomes, I'd take a wait & see approach to their TT's/5-r's. Just as with automobiles (don't buy new models the first couple years), I'd want to see how they hold up over time before putting my money there.

It all comes down to floorplan in the end, though. Which suits you best?

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Hi and welcome. My husband and I had a Jayco Eagle 5'er and loved it. I really recommend them.

Winnebago bought Sunnybrook, so I have a feeling that is where they are getting their design basis. From what I have seen of the Winnebago towables, I think they will do well.
