Ok some trailer details!!!! This thing was a dream to tow. I think shipping weight was actually just under 5000lbs IIR. It had the spread axles and towed VERY smoothly, fuel mileage was up a bit from normal. For a long TT this behaved very nicely on the road. Only towed this one 400 miles but I hardly noticed it was there, in fact I found myself checking my mirrors more frequently to ensure I had not forgotten it somewhere lol. I enjoy this exterior color scheme as well.

Then I went back to Jayco and picked up a 2013 Jayco 26.5 RKS. Crabman asked me about this one in an earlier post and I'll repeat what I told him " I just towed it 990 miles and honestly I did not enjoy it. I've towed a few other rear kitchen floorplans and they don't feel "balanced" if that makes sense. In all fairness it is designed as a half ton towable unit and I am overkill with the my one ton. Also my hitch is likely higher than it should be perhaps. It seemed to porpoise a fair bit. In my experience the larger / heavier the 5er the smoother towing. These are only MY thoughts and on a "properly" set up truck I think it would deliver a better towing experience"
