Big50RV Demo Day-1st RV camping 07/16/20 SOON

Hi all, I'm super excited 2020 Jayco Eagle HT 264 bhok, demo day is next Thursday July 16th in Myrtle Beach and camping nearby, right away. My husband and I's first RV (we.re from Atlanta GA). My 50th bday present during these COVID times. I've been researching for last 3 months. Purchasing newbie items now...I'm hopeful for a smooth time. We upgraded to a newer 2016 Supercrew F-150 for the RV too. Any helpful comments welcome. I've been watching youtube non stop and taking notes. I grew up camping in a coachman with my parents but it's been like 30 years since. I just have great memories.
Wish us luck!

Wow, that leaves me concerned. We researched and was told the truck is 2016 F-150 4x4 v8 Supercrew TiV 5.0 L engine and it could tow 10,500 or 11,000. The camper is 8096 as is now then we’ll add hitch and everything like people and things in bed of truck. You know for sure it won’t? I am very concerned now. Seems we get different answers all the time. Please tell me how far you are sure of this. I do appreciate your reply.

You'll get a LOT of different opinions on that. The best way to find out how it comes together, is to outfit it exactly like you're going camping (all the gear. people, fuel, food, water, dog, etc.) and weigh it on a Cat scale. There's posts here on how to check the 3 ways on the scales. That will tell you in hard numbers if your WDH is set up properly (enough weight transferred to the front axle). your tongue weight, and total weight. If it's within the number that's printed on the door jamb sticker, you're good. Don't fret it right now, and don't go buying a bigger truck tomorrow.
