new and eager

Hi guys/gals. I've been reading this forum for awhile now and finally decided to join in. We currently have a 2008 Jayco 31.5 fbhs Eagle super lite. The kids have grown and left and we are thinking about trading. We are looking at the 2015 pinnacle 36fbts. We pull with a 2008 Dodge one ton quad cab srw short bed. I have a 15 k Reese slider. The dealer says ok, Reese says upgrade to the 20 k slider. The gross weight of thr fbts is 15950lbs. Any input on anything will be appreciated.

Hello and welcome. I'm relatively new as well. Given the info you provided, I would move up to the Reese 20k slider for sure.

There is a safety factor built in and 15590 is the max. Load as usual and go to a cat scale and see where your at. Might only be 14,000 or so.

Welcome. I'd agree with Reese, upgrade the hitch. Use the search function and there's a lot of reading on which hitch to get.
