Cargo carrying capacity. Consider it payload for a trailer.

^ Yup. The 28BHBE has crazy high Cargo Carrying Capacity (CCC) in comparison, and I assume it's partially because of the extra water capacity, but that only accounts for about 250 lbs difference (~40 gals vs ~80 gals FW capacity, or one tank vs two tanks). The BHBE also has more amenities like a solid sliding shower door, and some other trimmings that add weight, but most of that is still counted in the "empty weight" listed on Jayco website. So really the practical weight from a usage standpoint is largely determined by what the end user puts into it. You might save a little with 20 lb tanks vs 30 lb tanks, but that's not much...

Just stream of thought here, thinking about weights and what not...

Are you seriously towing that 287BHSW with a 4.6L Tundra? How's that going so far?

Tundra has no problem to tow the trailer, it stays at 2200rpm most of the time at 65, will go to 3600 rpm on hills, it has 4.1 rear differential made for towing, usually leave it in tow/haul mode, getting 10-11 mpg towing and 16mpg empty, have 30 000 miles- no issues whatsoever, had ford 3500 7.3 power stroke , Chevy 6.0 2500, nothing but expensive issues, tundra feels very solid as a tow vehicle, I was surprised myself, towed from NJ to South Carolina and back this fall, love the truck

Also the truck is a pure stock, except for the brake controller

What are the specs on the truck just out of curiosity? GVWR, available payload, GCVWR, etc. and engine power specs. I'm assuming it has a 6 speed transmission since it's so new, and that would help explain how such a small engine could manage such a large trailer. I'm sure those 4.10's help too. Good to hear it's working for you, just very surprising on first impressions.

It is rated to tow 8100, payload is over 1300, most of the stuff , I put in the trailer , tongue weight is around 800, which leaves 500 for my wife and I , it is pretty close , that is why I didn't get 28bhbe, just from the legal prospective , I wanted to stay within manufactures' specifications

It is 6speed with tow/haul mode, u can feel the difference towing, it keeps rpm higher, shifts quicker and uses engine braking downhill
