I got the Jayco home safe and sound. It tows so great! I was passed by several semi's and it was a tad breezy but didn't experience any sway so was very pleased with that. I also got the Prodigy P2 brake controller so I think I'm ready! I had a Prodigy before so there was no question what I would get this time around.
I happened upon a closed truck scale on my way home so mosied onto the scale and weighed the truck and trailer. 2550lbs front truck axle, 2550lbs rear truck axle, and 2100lbs for the trailer. I'm pretty happy with that. I only have a 3750lb tow rating with my truck (yeah, its a Ram, but only a 6cyl) and a GCVWR of 8700 so I'm very happy with the set up and have plenty of cushion for the 600lb carrying capacity of the trailer. I'll be hard pressed to find 600lbs with just me, the dog, and a few clothes and things for camping. I have the bed of the pickup as well to help distribute the weight around if I take a longer trip.
All in all, I'm thrilled with my purchase!
Hope to see some of you in my travels!
