OK,we pick up the new 5th wheel in 2 weeks. It's a 2011 Jayco Eagle 29.5RKS Super Light. Anybody have a 2011 Jayco Super Light? How do you like it? Any problems? How well do they pull? We have enjoyed the 2003 Jayco Eagle we have. Just hope the new one is made as well.

Is it the Superlight or the HT Superlight? We have a 2012 SuperLite 26.5RLS and took our first trip with it to Zion for a week. The trailer worked quite well, we were very comfortable, the fridge kept the food cool, the freezer is much larger than our old one in the 1993 Jayco Eagle 215SD, the bed was plenty big enough, even for me and I'm no lightweight, and the bathroom was fine, the shower was big enough for me as well, especially compared to the old one. Very comfortable with the slides out, now if we can just get our wardrobe slide working right, have to call the dealer to see if they have the parts needed to get it fixed now that we are home. Towed great with no problems. Hope you have the same results with yours.

That is the model that got us thinking about getting a fifth wheel as one camped next to us and was pulled by an F150 5.0L. The 1600-1700lb hitch weight scared me away and I got a similar Cougar instead that was a few hundred pounds less. We loved the Jayco 29.5RKS and love our Cougar 299RKS.

Jayco has been building RV trailers for longer than just about anyone else...for 43 years the same family owned business has thrived. One thing they really have accomplished is "towability" Rarely if ever will owners report any issues when towing properly.
And the new features, goodies and ammenities will blow your socks off and make you forget your 2003 Eagle completely!
We went to our 7th Jayco and 1st 5th wheel 8 years ago, A Jay Flight Bunk model...and can say without hesitation that you will love the way it handles and tows. Especially with a good truck like you have.
As a former Jayco owner, you'll also continue to be impressed by the real craftsmanship, and if needed, the customer service and terrific way they treat their customers. Congtatulations and welcome to the Jayco Family! Again!
That is the floor plan we really like and are adding it to our list for the #8th Jayco!
Although we don't currently have a 5th wheel the Jayco 28.5 RLS is going to be our next one. We are waiting for the dealer to get a 2013 in so we can see the changes in person. Looking forward to the upgrade, especially the solid surface countertops.
