New Jayco 24RKS

I just bought a 2015 Jayco 24rks. Seems to fit my family perfect. Our first trip was from Tennessee to Destin, Florida drove 65mph towing it with a 2015 Nissan Titan with a Equalizer wdh. It towed great. I am looking forward to camping in it with the family. Our next trip will be the great smokey mountains, Gatlinburg Tn.

The 24RKS is a good choice and it does look good with your truck. What kind of mileage have you gotton so far with the nissan?

I usually get 15 mpg average, but towing the camper I was getting around 10 to 11 mpg.

Check your tires. Most new TT's have ST tires that are rated for 65mph. Aside from that Welcomr to the Jayco family.

Good point. That's why I never got over 65 mph. I also ran my tires a few lbs. under max inflation so when they heat up on the road they won't blow. The weight distribution hitch needs a little tweaking also. The dealer did a rush job on it. I tweaked it before I left, but it still needs some adjustment. I appreciate any advice I can get. This is my first camper and have a lot to learn. I want to be safe and have fun with it.
