Eagle Cheyenne: Review
Eagle reinvents the sidefold hardfloor concept with its new family-friendly Cheyenne camper.
The Eagle Cheyenne has greatly increased the availability of the sidefold hardfloor concept and for those with three or four children it provides a great alternative to the sidefold softfloor camper.
The interior room is impressive and the general level of equipment provided makes for a good camper.
We were assured that many of the rough edges on our review camper, which was the proof-of-concept prototype, are being ironed out as production swings into gear. At $24,800 you get a lot of accommodation in a unique off-the-ground format that ought to pay for itself on the first bout of extended wet weather a long way from home.
Hits & Misses
- The internal room
- The size of the rear awning

- Nifty rear fold-down spare
I would’ve liked…
- More thought to the stone guard and mud flaps
- More user-friendly awning set-up
