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

I liked…

  • The internal room
  • The size of the rear awning
  • The huge storage capacity
  • Nifty rear fold-down spare

I would’ve liked…

  • More thought to the stone guard and mud flaps
  • More user-friendly awning set-up
  • More solid fridge tie-down option
  • Relocated internal power outlet
