First I picked up another military transfer and hauled it the first few hundred miles of it's journey to our local storage yard. It's headed to Petewawa, Ontario at a later date.
2012 Jayco 31RLDS (I think) weighed in around 9000 lbs as it had some personal items in it. Hauled really well without the WD bars on. I forgot my lower height hitch head at home. Stopped by to see the wife at work on my way by and she snapped the pic for me. In a rare moment you can see my arm in this picture lol!



Then I ran down to Middlebury and picked up this monster! 2014 Jayco Pinnacle 36REQS. It was equipped with a Mor-Ryde pin box and it did smooth out the ride some but I prefer the air bag models (can't recall the brand).

Unloaded Vehicle Weight (lbs) 11,700
Dry Hitch Weight (lbs) 2,670
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (lbs) 15,950
Cargo Carrying Capacity (lbs) 4,250
Exterior Length 40' 1"

Leaving here (Winnipeg) in the am to go back to Jayco Middlebury and pick up a 2014 Jayco 28 BHBE to bring back to Winnipeg. I'm just waiting for someone to chime in on these units and say it's their new trailer!

2014 Jayco Swift 287BHBE out to Winnipeg. Gotta love these lightweight trailers behind a 1 ton truck, makes for some easy towing miles that's for sure.
Unloaded Vehicle Weight (lbs) 6,495
Dry Hitch Weight (lbs) 700
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (lbs) 9,250
Exterior Length 33' 3"



Then this 2014 Puma Palamino Park model 39PRL. FOr being a park model it towed really well, lucked out and had a decent tailwind for about half the trip back to Saint John, New Brunswick. This unit was different in that the bedroom was at the front and it had a "standard looking trailer front end". The rear is the big window less aerodynamic end.
Did not realize until just now that the pic I took did not catch the whole length lol.
Length 40'3"
Width 8'0"
Height 11'9"
Hitch Weight 1,265 lbs
Dry Weight 9,785 lbs
Gross Weight 11,425 lbs

Took an un planned 2.5 week holiday as I needed to rebuild the tranny in my Dodge. That was cheap....
Anyways hauled this 2014 Coachmen Catalina 40TBS to Winnipeg. Yellow sticker on trailer said 9200 lbs IIRC, Canada Customs pwork said 9605 lbs, and web says 9010 lbs. Talk about inconsistency lol. Heading back to pick up a 2014 Jayco 33BHTS on Sunday.

Base Weight 9,010 lbs.
Exterior Length 40' 9"
