The DW and I are moving from our Outfitter Apex8 Camper to a 5th toy hauler. We really like the Attitude 28SAG for the layout, features and general look of quality. I'm looking for ACTUAL experience with Eclipse Attitude as far as overall quality, general build engineering and other things that are note worthy. Also, is there any reason to STAY AWAY from Eclipse? I'm sure everyone has a story but...

Any help we can get is worth it. Thanks in advance.

I own a 2018 Eclipse 28SAG. I've had issues and my cousin has a 15 with a lot less issues. I think whatever make or model you buy, you will have issues. The Dealer is going to tell you everything you want to hear to convince you otherwise. PM me if you have specific questions on the unit.

I have a 2015 with sofa slideout. Biggest issue I have had which a lot of others have had as well is after doing an axle flip large cracks developed in the frame between the axles. Lippert took reaponsibility and paid to have mine repaired/beefed up. My understanding is that last year they made some frame changes to address this problem. Believe the trailer now also comes from the factory with spring over axle flip like it should be.

I would say the overall build quality is inline with the rest of the industry. Sometimes you luck out and get a good one and sometimes you dont. The biggest thing I like about the trailer is its overall size/weight combined with lots of garage space. Trailer tows very nicey behind any 3/4 ton.

We checked out a couple Attitudes at SX last weekend, pretty cool features like LED lighting in counter edge and around windows.

I looked at that exact same model and went with forest River (stealth, Shockwave, sandstorm). My decision was based on the local dealer here for Forest River just opened a huge shop and I got a second year factory warranty for $250. That being said, in my decision making, we liked the bathroom much better in the eclipse, better use of the space. And the kitchen was a little better in the eclipse. We liked the color scheme in our stealth.

Other than that, everything in that price range uses the exact same components and every one will have issues, even when you do a thorough PDI. A few trips down the road will expose them. I just recommend you use it a lot the first year to get the bugs worked out. And I'd so research on the repair facility you'll be using. My brother had little issues with his forest River and the local dealer by him screwed his trailer up. He ended up fixing the heating system and a few other things himself.

OP feel free to PM me and I can share my experiences. My brand new Attitude was a total disaster and I sold it after just one season. The decision to trade (at a loss of course) was not taken lightly.

Lol... Consumers are in love with LED’s. You can throw LEDs on a turd and people would buy it.

That’s what I bought shiny turd with LEDs.

In all seriousness. I had issues, eclipse has taken care of them so far.
