1st time towing a JayFlight 27BHS
We have a new 2016 27BHS that we towed to Galveston for a weekend shakedown. We tow with a 2007 F150 SuperCrew (150" WB)... The truck has a 1640 lb. cargo rating and a 7800 lb max tow rating. (18" wheels) The base weigh of the trailer is 6250 lbs. I was concerned that the trailer was too much for the truck, but it actually did very well. Or at least better than I expected. I set the cruise on 62mph and held 2500 RPM all the way to the beach.. I can tell that the tongue is a little light from the wiggle that I was getting, but otherwise it pulled quite well I thought... Now, having said all this, we will be towing along the Gulf Coast on most trips. IF we were going to Colorado or other mountain states I am sure I would want more truck. Just saying !!
I will load more stuff into the front of the trailer and then get it weighed, and let you know the results when I can get that done.
