This is the "rumble"...from another forum and a reputable source...

Anyone ordering an Jayco Eagle today will be getting a 2013 model .... the new year is scheduled to usher in some pretty significant changes in the various Eagle lines....

The current line of Eagle SL (Super Lite) TT's and 5ers will be known as Eagles.

The current line of Eagle TT's will be discontinued .... in connection with this the 320RLDS, 324BHDS, 322FKS, and 330RLTS will be deleted.

The current line of Eagle SL HT (half ton) 5ers will be known as the Eagle HT line.

And the current line of Eagle 5ers will be known as Eagle Premier 5ers.

Per these 2013 Jayco Pics from RVUSA.Com...you won't miss the Eagle TT's!

I was also interested in the 322FKS but if you go to this Jayco site at http://www.jaycotraveltrailers.com/ Clicky you can still see the Eagle line of TT's but the 322FKS is no longer in the list of models available.

According to the RVdirect Quick quote site, the 322 FKS is a 2012 model that is discontinued and only stock units available. This site shows which models are available for 2013 also if you do a bit of searching.

Jayco is horrible about updating their website. The earliest they update it to show the new model year is August or September. The wholesalers and dealers are usually much faster about getting info on the new model years online.

Frankly, after Jayco cut the quality of the Eagle TT line so much in 2012 and even more so in 2013 by dropping the existing TTs and replacing them with what was formerly the Superlight line, I would suggest you look elsewhere for a TT (I've written off Jayco myself). Also, there have been increased complaints about Jayco's customer service (or, rather, the lack of it) and sloppy construction, such as not cleaning sawdust off the roof before applying the roofing material and leaving bubbles in the roofing that Jayco refuses to repair under warranty.

I have been trying to get info on the 2013 Eagles and it's tough. Dealerships say they don't have info or that it is coming soon. I see pics of the new ones on other lots, so they must be coming out. It's frustrating that the company does not make information more available. I realize dealers need to move inventory, but as a consumer I want information.

Anything new? Anyone have timelines?

.... and the new OP's question was only; "anyone have any info regarding the 2013 Jayco eagle tt line?".

Keystone has a Sprinter model 300KBS that is similar to the Jayco 322FKS but it lacks a lot of the options that I was considering on the Jayco including electric stabilizer jacks, a second A/C, and several others that were less important to us. I have not seen one to compare to the Jayco.

I will say they are very slow to update their Web site. We are on Jayco #2 and have looked at a lot of other brands, both before #1 and before #2. Jayco isn't perfect, but they are of a lot better quality than quite a bit of the other brands out there, and I have not had any customer service issues w/ them - in fact they have been very helpful when contacted, and authorizing warranty repairs. And yes, we do have an Eagle Super Lite and like it. I wouldn't buy any TT today w/o a 2-year warranty.
