I'm beginning to look at these two fivers and would appreciate any info or thoughts on the two models. I like the pinnacle 32RLTS but haven't yet seen a similar eagle.

We love our Eagle 321RLTS and have had very good warranty support from Jayco.

Just for fun, wait until it has rained for two or three days, then ask your salesman to demonstrate the "emergency slide retraction procedure".

I believe that the Pinnacle is a bit of an upgrade over the Eagle. Lines for Jayco go HT (for 1/2 ton towing) Eagle, Premier and Pinnacle. Prices are set accordingly.

We had a 2008 Eagle TT for 4 years and loved it. I know you're asking about 5'ers but the build quailty and fit & finish of our Jayco were great. We looked at them when searching for a 5'er but they just didn't have that one floorplan that met all our needs and wants. If they did I'd buy another Jayco product without hesitation. Those Pinnacles are beautiful.

Our previous 5th Wheel was a Jayco Eagle, great unit with no problems.
We used our Eagle for many weekend and short term trips.

We now have a Jayco Pinnacle 5th Wheel, again another great unit, soild construction and a we think a good value for the price.

Our Pinnacle is quite a bit larger than our Eagle was and has performed great for us over the last year and a half.

Just be sure to be standing well away from the unit and have a camera ready..

We really like our Pinnacle and was a significant step up from our Jayco Superlite Eagle 5W. The Pinnacle is more solidly built and has more qualities and options than did our Eagle.

I'd suggest you go to Jayco Owners Forum and get additional perspectives on your Eagle vs Pinnacle query.

Good luck with your decision.

Jayco makes a great unit and there are many of us who have had multiple Jayco over many years. We're starting to look for our retirement rig and finding others that appeal to us over the brand we trust. We walked thru a couple models this weekend - one Pinnacle and one Cedarcreek, both front living room layouts. The CC looked cleaner and more modern. At this level, ceiling lights shoud not match ceiling lights fount in a pop-up. Come on Jayco

Only thing to be aware of is they are fairly heavy for their size. Not a bad thing, but just make sure you have a truck that can handle it. The 31 RLTS GVWR is about 15,000 pounds.

We own the Pinnacle 36 kpts, it is a very solid well built unit.
