New to Jayco

Hi all. I'm in process of buying a 2017 Jayflight 32bhds. Anyone have any experience in towing this trailer? My tow vehicle is a 2013 GMC 2500HD 6.0 with 3.73 gears. Wondering if anyone has the same/similar setup and how it tows?

Hi to you. Welcome to the forum.

I have a similar truck (but 6.0 diesel engine), towed similar (and larger) trailers, and believe you will be fine. Hopefully there will be folks here with your same engine and we'll see what they have to say.

If you haven't already, investigate weight distribution (WD) hitches and anti-sway. I've used the Equal-i-zer brand 4-point hitch for years and have been very pleased with it.

Welcome to JOF! I don't think that you will have any problem with that setup.
