hi there from minnesota

we bought a 27.5 bhs eagle jayco last fall after a tree fell on our 22 foot jaco travel trailer and totaled it out. I pull it with a Ford 250 power stroke with a bw fifth wheel. Love the room and the grand kids love the bunk beds. I haven't had any issues with the 250 or the jayco 5th wheel. I get 14.5 mpg and am happy with that. we are looking forward to getting out much more next year and visiting more of our beauitiful country.

What year f250? 4door 6.5' box? Also whats your total length hooked up? Just wondering kind of got my eyes on that model 5er. I do love my x23b but maybe after my next truck up grade. I might get a model like that one thinking of even towing a boat behind it. Thinking ahead for my 5 year plan. Glad to here you like it

I bought it in 2011. its gray and so is my 5th wheel. I get quite a few compliments on it when i camp. I ordered it with the factory installed 5th wheel brackets. b&w has the 5th wheel at almost half the price of a reece. just 4 handles to rotate and the 5th wheel pops out. i put the dust covers back in and i have a flat floor in my pickup. i do have the 6.5 box and a sidewinder extention on the camper. it actually piviots on the camper not the 5th wheel. i can make 90 deg. turns with it. its a 4 door also.

I never noticed before that you can take the spelling of Texas and switch the a and e and end up spelling Minnesota

Do you know your bumper to bumper length? (Front bumper of truck to rear bumper of camper.

Sounds like a great setup
