The primary feature which attracts us to the EB model is the opening rear hatch. We don't plan to haul anything which would benefit from the hatch, but think that it might be nice to leave the hatch open sometimes when we are in the trailer to bring in more fresh air and light.

Do any of you use your hatch like that and is it really as nice as we think it is?

Thanks,
Bob
Yes, every time we are out ... from February to October in the northern (very) part of the US. Whether it is worth the extra $$ - only you know / personal taste. But, you also get larger tires / wheels, upgraded upholstery, & versatility of bench seats that fold up in case you want to haul something inside ... like bicycles or extra gear.

The open rear hatch provides excellent shade from the sun while open and the opening is fully screened ... it is just what we wanted and have not been disappointed with the design at any point ... only a 25', but wife really thinks that it is the cat's meow !!! Without the inside "bump out" of the sink, it makes it much easier for folks to pass each other in that area.

The floor covering is exceedingly durable as the EB upgrade includes and we added quickly removable carpeting on top of that ... PM if you want further thoughts.

FANTASTIC!!!

I don't think there is anything rude or even personal about asking the price of a trailer., at least in this forum. We already know the MSRP and that the dealers discount that price. It is not like asking one's income,or credit score. It is just another piece of important information we are all interested in. We should share this information so we can all benefit from that information when we are negotiating our own deals. Only the dealers benefit from keeping this information secret, and they can negotiate better than we can because they do it every day. Why give them more of an advantage?

Thanks Flash Silver! Makes me feel a little better. I did have a couple of private messages, so all is good! Laura

We traded a 27 international for our EB. We love it, with a few mods.
