It’s off to the RV show … with a few TC’s I haven’t seen up close. Eagle Cap, made in Yakima – just down the street from us, showed the 950 and 1160 models. That translates to a 9’6″ model and a 11 footer. They weigh in at 3294 and 4298 lbs respectively, and they are beauties!
R-17 on top, R-22 underneath, and R-11 in the walls qualifies them for living in Washington! We get snow here!!! And, we get 90+ heat – so proper insulation is good news indeed.
Now I’m sure ya’all know that Eagle Caps have that one piece fiberglass front and rear cap – to keep the elements at bay throughout the life of the TC. Did ya know they have this unique basement tray – 6′ long. Skis maybe? Hunting equipment? The 950 also is a slide-out model … with dinettes either U-shaped or with “Dream Dinette” feature – that is, without the legs. With a flip of a lever, it easily converts to the bed position. Nice. Heat is ducted to the bathroom also – good for those cold mornings!
If lots and lots of room (that is, LOTS and lots of room) is your passion … then check out this baby: the 1160 model. Yup, it’s a side entry camper.
This model is an “above-the-floor” design … that is, the floor of the camper is above the railing of the truck.
This rear sofa makes into a bed too. And, so does the dinette. All of this without encroaching on the massive floor space. But wait, there’s more.
No, this isn’t a picture of a class A rig – it’s a truck camper. One you can park in the city, maneuver in the parking lot, and still sleep 6 comfortably.
Imagine waking up in the backwoods in this cozy bedroom … maybe to the aroma of fresh coffee brewing … or bacon sizzling. Hmmmm – I could do that.
Yes, they do make an even bigger model – it’s the 1165, and it has an island sink in the kitchen area. Three slide outs.
Well, I’ve sure enjoyed living in these Eagle Caps for a few hours. They’ve got lots more to say about themselves at their site, here. I can only say that these are high quality, well thought out and nicely executed campers.
