The Keystone Cougar fifth wheel is a common choice among shoppers but if you want something that stands out among all the other campers, check out the Jayco Eagle. The Eagle offers many standards that are not available on the Cougar and an updated, modern look that can't be matched.

Jayco Eagle Fifth Wheel Inventory

A Foundation of Strength

Unlike the Cougar, Jayco Eagle uses real plywood in their floor decking. Plywood is more resistant to permanent water damage. And if it does become wet, it dries quicker and dries to it's original shape, not swollen and uneven. Plywood is more expensive, which is why many manufacturers choose other materials, but the Jayco Eagle is not built for a quick profit, it is built to bring years of enjoyment to your family.

Corporation v. Family Owned Business

Keystone, maker of the Couger fifth wheel, is part of the Thor group of manufacturers. This large conglomerate is traded on the New York Stock Exchange and has bought up many RV manufacturers. Jayco, on the other hand, is a family-owned business and always has been. This means they don't have to push to make higher profits to satisfy shareholders, the only people they answer to is their customers. Jayco was founded by Lloyd J Bontrager and is still ran by the Bontrager family. Their commitment to quality and customer service is unmatched in the industry.

Old World Craftsmanship, New World Technology

The Jayco workforce is made up of nearly 70% Amish and Mennonite workers. They appreciate quality and things built to last and this attitude of craftsmanship shows through in the products they build. But believing in old fashioned values doesn't mean they ignore new technology. The development team is constantly updating floor plans and amenities to make camping as fun and worry-free as possible.
