Dealing on a 08 T 29M

Any Issues I should look for? I'm going to be towing it with a 02 E350 with a 7.3 using a Reese strait line weight distribution hitch.

Like any used RV, give it a good going over especially looking for signs of any moisture damage (inside & out). Another area to check is the undercarriage and axles, look for signs of any impact damage because some TH owners tow their units off-road. Also check the integrity of the rear door/ramp.

Make sure the WDH weight rating will accommodate the TH's tongue and gross weights both loaded with/without the toys.

Here are Jayco's publicized spec's on the Octane ZX T29M:


Unloaded Vehicle Weight (lbs.) 7,720
Dry Hitch Weight (lbs.) 1,130
Gross Vehicle Weight (lbs.) 11,950
Cargo Carrying Capacity 4,250


Exterior Length 33'-7"
Exterior Height with A/C 146"
Interior Height (living area) 102"
Cargo area length 12'

Tank Capacities

Fresh Water Capacity, includes water heater (gals.) 112
Gray Wastewater Capacity (gals.) 35
Toilet/Black Wastewater Capacity (gals) 35
