this is John competitor from Tarrytown OB and today were going to be checking out this brand new 2017 Jayco Eagle HT 26.5 RLS the RLS at least the RL part stands for rear living and as you can see for 2017 this comes in a new color and now comes in this silver eagle color and it has new graphics as well as compared to last year as you can see when. I pan over here that is actually a full size Eagle, but it's still the same color as last year it's kind of that a more tan color as, but this year is a more true silver or gray color and.
I actually really like it a lot. I think it's really sharp and see in the front it comes with landing gear there and then it comes with two stabilizer jacks in the back it's pretty cool go here and check out these storage compartments you can see there's a spare tire there in the front open these up here's one utility for it and you can see the hydraulic motor up there this up here's where your propane storage is and you can see right here this is for solar. So, you can easily just kind of plug a solar panel right in there.
I think it's really cool that they have in these units nowadays here's a little access panel you can put a battery or where you can put your rear camera system get another look at this graphics package okay here's your hot water heater where you plug in your power and here is the large slide and you can see that it has these large UV frameless windows a really attractive and the rubber seals aren't aren't going to wear out there's the aluminum wheels that come with this oh and you can also see that more. I'd see re 3000 and Signia they're in between the two tires alright let's go around check out the back of this unit oh and. So, you know this particular unit is almost 30 feet long.
I think it's 29 foot 11 inches it's a really big back window there you can see the bumper. So, your hitch would go and comes with a ladder automatically for your roof maintenance three large aluminum entrance steps aluminum grab handle for new this year and there is the name twenty six point five RLS another one of those frameless windows with your Jayco two-year manufacturer's warranty pretty much the best warranty in the biz is your exterior speakers you can see that they're shielded for outdoor use and comes with a pretty good-sized power awning with an LED light strip your entrance door some power plugs on the outside here and going to be that's through storage and it does have for 2017 this rubberized diamond plating on the bottom other than that it comes with an LED light power plug in. I think that's about it for the outside let's uh let's go on inside this unit and check out what's different in the 2017 Eagle HD oh and by the way called the Eagle HD because it's meant to be towed with a half-ton vehicle.
So, it's definitely this is an older. I'll go back here this is an older Eagle from last year, but you can still see that it's quite a bit larger in comparison to this HT they do a number of things to make it lighter the height of the unit being one of them. I really like the HTS because they look really sharp they have a lot of really awesome features inside of them they have really smart layouts, but they're at a really good value for the money and they also you know obviously you don't have to have as big of a vehicle to tow them.
So, they kind of offer a really good mixture of both worlds okay. I'm inside this 2017 HT now just kind of panning around showing you what the general layout is this is a rear living unit. So, as you walk in you see this meadow decor you see these two reclining chairs and for 2017 Jayco did make the reclining chairs larger.
I get a little bit closer to this. So, you can you can see this metal leatherette feels very soft you can see that it has textured walls you can see these are actually part of the decor package as well comes with some curtains blinds on every window nice sturdy blinds easy to pull up and down comes with shadow glass lots of storage in here a surprising amount of storage speakers on the ceiling there are ducks for the AC on the ceiling there is an AC unit on here yeah they just wanted to feel more luxurious and more open in here. So, they didn't have the AC protrude down once you enter.
I look to the right and you see the shadow glass open that up here's where your controls for utilities are going to be and for your lights all the lights in here can be controlled via just a couple switches which is really great all right you see that large window in the back to the recliners that. I already talked about here is a trifold sofa bed large windows behind that more storage above that with the shadow glass you can see all the woodworking on the slide-out fasciae through the decorative lights above the dining table which will also fold down into a bed and also for 2017 comes with these black storage bins underneath. So, they have some convenient door handles for the storage.
So, you don't just have to lift up the seats like in some of the units this table will move down when it turns into a bed to the right of that we have the entertainment unit and this is fury on. So, actually, if you go on for your hand side they have some really crazy test videos that show you these are made specifically for the RV and marine industry, but this has USB bluetooth. So, you can hook up your phone you're going to Bugzilla Ritu this and of course it has you know a DVD player and ham and an am/fm receiver is where your TV's going to go it's on a swing out bracket.
So, you can position it how you like here's some more of this decorative storage and on over to your kitchen we have a really large gas and electric refrigerator the north cold. I'll open that up and see it's a very nice size a large storage compartment above that the hydraulics. So, you don't have to hold it open it's.
So, tall stainless steel microwave oven hood three burner stainless steel range top and stainless steel oven let you look at the kitchen countertop dual stainless steel sink pullout faucet and this is made out of real materials there's a window above the sink another new thing for 2017 is this bourbon chocolate backsplash or backboard or whatever you want to call it it's contrasting to the other wood that's in here which is all matching and Jago did that on purpose and it's a a pretty pretty cool-looking feature all right above the faucet you can have some more storage up here. I get a plug up there and some storage space storage space above this microwave as well. I believe the stainless steel look is also new for 2017, but that just comes standard now all right let's look at the floor you can see this would look vinyl it's very textured pretty rich looking, but it's going to stand up well in the elements to sha stain resistant carpeting and this year they also made this carpet to increase the insulation value and also to reduce noise alright let's look at all of this cupboard space to the left of the refrigerator.
So, you're going to have a lot of pantry space here and lift of that this could be linen space this could be more pantry space whatever you want to use it for let's step on into the bathroom alright this is the bathroom in this 26.5 RLS it's got a porcelain foot flush toilet it's a great feature got a little stand there some storage some hanging hooks power fan the ceiling textured walls in the bathroom glass radio style shower enclosure. So, this is going to feel really big it's going to feel more like showering at home skylight in the shower true backsplash or sink have some storage underneath the sink mirrored medicine cabinet here open it up. I didn't even turn any lights in here there we go you can see there's LED light around that mirror around the medicine cabinet step on out go into the master bedroom alright they're reminding you again that this is wired for solar few steps step up to the bed is a queen-size Simmons mattress Simmons mattresses are a new thing for 2017 they used to be Denver mattresses this is the same straw stain-resistant carpet they even give you a spot to put your TV on with the power plug on the ceiling speakers back here.
So, you can actually zone out that multimedia player you can control the bedroom area the living room area over the outdoor area there's a large window on that side of the bed this side of the bed is a large wardrobe area these mirrors make the room appear larger, but also inside there's tons of space because this is one of those slide outs there's a hanging bar in the ceiling and lots of space inside this closet alright more storage on the side of the bed there are partner LED reading lights above both sides of the bed tables storage underneath USB DC 110 volt in out and there's a skylight in here too as well as a sturdy door cutout on sound. So, yeah this has been the brand new 2017 26.5 RLS like. I said these are really great because they're they're a mixture of the features that you see in some of the heavier bigger fifth wheels and they give you some of the features that you that are nice and some of the lighter easier to tow units.
So, there really is beautiful and pleasant in here in a really great atmosphere, but at a really good value and at something that you can actually tow with a half-ton. So, yeah this is a pretty great unit so.
