Jayco Owners Do It Right All The Time, Correct?

But this guy seems to need more truck. It is an F150 and no WD hitch either. I took this at Wal-Mart 2 miles from here and an hour later he pulls into the park where I'm hosting and sets up in the site next to me.

I hope he didn't have to tow it too far. I'm going to go up to the office and see where he lives and make sure I don't drive that direction when he leaves.

I'll bet the salesman told him it would tow just fine!

The truck appears to be sitting level so maybe his truck is okay but he might just need some hitch education

That's on joke, they tell people things like that a lot of times.

The truck looks reasonably level in this picture, but it wasn't. I'm not sure how he got here due to a railroad crossing just down the road.

That's a big RV. He needs serious help. It is a Jayco product though.

from what I remember the camper should also be riding level so it doesn't nose dive when braking or lift ... that looks like in a hard braking situation the front of the truck could come off the ground lol

I wouldn't have approached him in the parking lot but I think I would have taken the time to educate him at the campground.

I towed an overloaded tandem axle cargo trailer for years and didn't realize the need for a WD hitch until I started researching our new TT.

Most people willingly accept advice even when it is unsolicited.

Well some will accept advice and some think they don't need it. The older I get the more I realize I need the advice
