Welcome to Jayco. We are greatly looking forward to traveling Up North when retirement allows longer trips.

Out of curiosity, what is payload and rear axle capacity of truck and pin weight of trailer? Those are the important numbers. The truck numbers are on yellow sticker inside drivers door.

We live not far from you in New York State's Adirondack Park. Here are some our favorite state campgrounds: Buck Pond, AuSable Point, Higley Flow, and Rollins Pond - all beautiful locations and inexpensive. Bienvenue!

Hi...the 2012 F150 has a 7350#gvwr, rear axel 3850# cap. , payload 2200# cap., truck weight as per ford 5980#(driver & gas incl.) Trailer per Jayco 7800#( no fluids or stuff) can't give actual weights, still in yard...not yet had chance to do scale weigh in.... however previous owner had a 2010 Tundra with a 6 ft. box and did some trips in hilly areas !! I will always travel dry and do less than 500 km. from home base( the long trips will be for the next rig & truck)( p.s. tow cap. 9300#)
