Jayco’s award-winning bunkhouse travel trailer has fifth-wheel features and high-end appeal.
A big bunkhouse travel trailer with a homey feel, the 2019 Jayco Eagle HT 264BHOK has not only caught the eye of potential buyers, it received a commendation from the RV industry, taking the top spot in the Family-Friendly category at the 2019 RVX industry and media event.
What makes the 264BHOK a standout? For starters, it features an integrated A-frame/drop-frame chassis and a unique front-cap design that allow for additional storage spaces more commonly found on fifth-wheels. Another innovative feature is an interior cargo bay that fits gear like bikes and kayaks. The bottom bed flips up in the bunk room, offering storage that is accessible from a rear door. Floor-mounted D-rings help secure large items for safe traveling.
The 264BHOK raises the bar for other bunkhouse trailers with a standard 15,000-Btu air conditioner and 17.8-gallon-per-hour DSI water heater, along with a MORryde CRE/3000 rubber suspension, Goodyear Endurance load-range E tires and Dexter axles with Nev-R-Adjust brakes.
All Jayco Eagle interiors were updated for 2019, taking inspiration from current home trends. Buyers can choose from Modern Farmhouse decor, featuring rustic-white cabinetry, or the American Tradition package with more familiar warm woods.
With sleeping space for up to eight, the 264BHOK puts the private master bedroom up front, with a residential queen walk-around bed and a separate outdoor entrance. In the rear, the double-over-double bunks have a curtain for privacy. Also occupying the rear, the bathroom includes a good size shower, a porcelain toilet, a skylight, and ample counter and cabinet space.
The main living area features a convertible U-shaped dinette or an optional chaise lounge in the single slideout, across from the entertainment center’s large HDTV. For supreme coziness, an optional LED fireplace is available.
The corner kitchen is outfitted with solid-surface countertops, residential cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances, including an 8-cubic-foot refrigerator on the opposite wall. A USB charging port is located here, in addition to a second port in the master bedroom. An exterior kitchen takes the cooking outdoors under the 19-foot awning.
Coming in just under 33 feet in length with a 9,995-pound gross vehicle weight rating, and retailing for $47,896, the 264BHOK feels like a high-end fifth-wheel at a fraction of the size and cost.

“Many buyers have asked for a travel trailer series with more fifth-wheel features. While we know the 264BHOK will certainly appeal to some first-time buyers, our key demographic will be veteran RVers who have already owned other Jayco products and have come to expect a higher level of quality or a more fully featured build from their camper.” — Chris Barth, Jayco Senior Director of Product Development
