Without Jayco’s legendary construction techniques, the Eagle wouldn’t be half the RV is actually is. The Jayco Eagle’s longevity is largely thanks to small details you’ll never even notice, hidden beneath the surface, things like screwed construction which leads to a much more secure build quality over the staples that competitors bond their frames with. Jayco RV always uses oversized nail plate joint fasteners on both sides of the trusses in order to tighten up the trusses themselves, this ensures a much smaller chance of movement and a more rigid RV. Also, as wires tend to be hidden in the frame, you want the safest set up possible to avoid hidden dangers in the future – Jayco’s use of 2×2 studs not only form an integral part of the Magnum Truss roof system but also provide a smoother edge for wires to run along when compared with competitors who simply use 1” aluminum strips in their roof supports. While we’re talking about the Magnum Truss system – this revolutionary roof gives the Jayco Eagle a fully walkable surface with a max load of over 4500 pounds. Under the same weight, competitors’ roofs literally collapsed. The Jayco Eagle also benefits from Climate Shield Weather Protection. This is billed as the ultimate in RV weather protection and has the primary benefit of extending your camping season. It helps to make your RV as efficient as it is possible to be, no matter whether it’s extreme heat, or extreme cold you’re encountering. The system is comprised of a combination of the following features:

  • Flexfoil insulation – this double-sided reflective insulation keeps interior temperatures in, and exterior temperatures out.
  • G20 Tint Windows – These dark tinted windows help to resist the rise of temperature when the sun is out.
  • Double Layer Fiberglass – In the fifth wheel version, the front cap gets a double layer of fiberglass insulation and Flexfoil insulation to help keep the bedroom at the most comfortable temperature possible.
  • PEX Plumbing – The water lines are PEX tested and can withstand temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Heated Underbelly – This feature takes forced air and radiant heat to the undercarriage of the RV to protect tanks, lines and vital systems from freezing in sub-zero temperatures.

This is undoubtedly a big RV, and traditionally big RVs can be a lot to handle from a towing perspective. That all changes with the Jayco Eagle, thanks to the Four Star Handling package – exclusive to the Jayco Eagle line up. This package features Dexter axles with self adjusting ‘Nev R Adjust’ brakes, Dexter shackles with wet bolt fasteners and bronze bushings for reduced wear and tear when towing, Goodyear Endurance tires with Durawall technology for increased resistance to cuts and punctures, and the MORyde rubberized suspension system, for unparalleled absorption and isolation of road shock. If all this isn’t enough, upgrade to the 5-star system, which includes all the above plus MORyde pin boxes, for the ultimate in handling. Besides the 5-star add on, all of this comes as standard on the Jayco Eagle and Jayco Eagle HT.

Jayco’s famous Eagle brand fifth wheels boast modern styling, innovative design, best-in-class construction and exclusive features that are sure to make every destination more enjoyable than the last.

Now we’re going to take you into a little more detail about what makes the Jayco Eagle line up so special. Even as you enter, you know this is a top-class RV – the Jayco Eagle is equipped with American made anti-slip aluminum entrance steps, complete with LED lighting. There’s an electrically powered awning with integrated LED lighting. As you step inside, you’ll be greeted by a bright and airy farmhouse style interior design. Cabinetry is finished in a distressed farmhouse white, and the hardware has a rustic feel with contrasting accents. There are lots of large windows, and this allows light to stream into the RV. It’s one of the most welcoming RVs on the market for sure.

Other options you can choose include an electric auto-leveling system, a second power awning, and even a second air conditioning unit. The Jayco Eagle also benefits from Jayco’s Jay Smart system, designed to make RV towing safer. This unique system makes it clear what you’re doing with your tow vehicle by highlighting even further your braking and turn signals. This gives lots of warning to other road users and can significantly reduce your chances of an accident on the roads. The Smart in Jay Smart stands for Safety Markers and Reverse Travel, and it seamlessly links up to your tow vehicles signals with no special adjustments or connections necessary. The system activates when brakes are applied (3 flashes from the rear SMART lights followed by solid illumination until the brake is released), when turn signals are activated (flashing SMART lights on the rear, side, and front), and when hazard lights have been turned on (all SMART lights flash together).
