Our New 2015 Eagle 284BHBE

Just picked up our new 2015 Jayco Eagle. Our 6th trailer in 33 years. Too bad we will not be using it until the Spring.

Congrats! What is the GVWR and how is it pulling with the 5.7 L Hemi? I see the 2500 has a 4.10 rear.

The GVWR of my 2015 Eagle is 9250#s. Dry weight from the factory is about 7200#s. My Ram 2500 from the factory has a GCWR of 20,000#s, less the weight of the truck, yields about 13,250 tow capacity. This number will go down as I load my truck, but the worst case of a fully loaded trailer @ 9250#s, there is still plenty left.

So far, I only pulled the trailer less than 50 miles, with about 30 on the NYS Thruway. I like to tow at about 60mph and my truck pulled it without a problem. My first long trip will be in June going from the Hudson Valley NY to Nashville with a one-way distance of 950 miles. This will be the true test of truck/trailer combo. Most trips before will be short 150 mile trips

The trailer I traded for this one was a 2009 Eagle Superlite 256RKS. Fully loaded it was 7450#s and my Ram 2500 didn't even know it was behind me.
