MIDDLEBURY, Ind. – Weighing under 7,300 pounds, the 2014 Jayco Eagle HT answers growing buyer demand in a half-ton fifth wheel. This Jayco mid-weight features everything customers love in the amenity-filled Eagle lineup but in a lighter package, towable by an impressive list of nearly 100 half-ton trucks.

With space-making slideouts, a private bedroom and a full-featured kitchen, Eagle HT loads up on comfort with six towable floorplans, ranging in 26- to 31-foot lengths. The lightest Eagle HT, the 23.5RBS, rolls in at 6,145 pounds, while the 27.5BHS features a kid-friendly bunk room.

For 2014, the Eagle HT exterior boasts enlarged graphics, a new color scheme and high-gloss, gel-coated fiberglass. Slam latches were introduced on the baggage doors, and an LED light strip was added to the electric awning. A remote operates the slideouts, awnings, jacks and patio light. For mid-weight towability, Eagle HT combines E-Z Lube axles, Nev-R-Adjust brakes, rear hitch prep and an optional MOR/ryde pin box.

Inside, Jayco equipped each Eagle HT model with an industry-exclusive pillowtop Denver Mattress, featuring convoluted foam layers. Heritage Mocha, Victorian-style cabinetry completes this interior package.

For four-season camping, Eagle HT extends the customers' camping season with the Jayco Climate Shield, the ultimate in weather protection. Designed for efficient heating and cooling, Climate Shield protects against extreme heat and extreme freezing, even when temperatures hit a high of 100° F or a low of 0° F. On the 2014 Eagle HT, super craftsmanship starts at the top with the Jayco-exclusive Magnum Truss Roof System. In a side-by-side test, this advanced roof system was 50 percent stronger than other industry roofs. 

Theses advancements allow Jayco to back Eagle HT with an industry-leading, 2-year Co-Pilot Limited Warranty — the most comprehensive warranty in the industry. This no-strings attached warranty is not an extended dealer warranty; it's a manufacturer's warranty that comes from the people who build Jayco RVs. Each Jayco is warranted to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship. It's one of the many ways Jayco provides peace of mind (and more fun) to its customers.
