Camper Bob, what are the specs on your truck as far as weight and tow capabilities? I just posted some CAT scale results from our rig on your other post from a year or so ago.
We just got a 2016 28BHBE and are pulling it with a 2007 GMC Sierra 1500HD. We're on our first trip, and I stopped to weigh things. My results show we're within everything except the GCWR, which is 14,000 for our truck and we're around 14,700. Interestingly enough as well, and worth mentioning for those looking at the BHBE, the sticker on ours shows around 6900lbs off the factory and the weight, loaded with cargo, but no water, is around 8100lbs. So that sticker really doesn't tell the story.
I will say our 1500HD pulls the trailer ok, but only in third gear, as fourth just can't manage it unless it's totally level road. Third runs around 2500-2900 RPMS, with all temps well under any red line, and I'm getting about 7.5MPG. Not great, but doable for trips around the state. But again, our 1500HD (6.0L) has higher payload (2900lbs) and tow weight capabilities (8300lbs) than many 1/2 ton trucks. I don't think I'd want to try the 28BHBE with anything less for sure.
Anyway, I'm curious what your RAM has as specs as I definitely think we'll be looking for a new TV at some point in the next year or two.
Ohiomom...good luck in your search and purchase! If you go with the 28BHBE, you'll love the floorplan. This is our third rig as a family and first Jayco. We just got ours and are out on our first trip and love it! We're a family of 4 with my boys being 13 and 15.
