I took my brand new 33BHBS on its very first trip this weekend in the rain. After I got out of the shower yesterday evening I noticed water on the floor by the rear wall next to the bed not near the bathroom. Not sure if water is from the rain or a leak in the plumbing. Has anyone else had this issue?

must be a leak from rain. The only plumbing leak that could be possible is a p trap leak on the tub but it would be wet there at the bathroom.

How much water?

Exact location?

Still raining? still leaking?

wet around slide?

Wet around rear window?

It has stopped raining and the water hasn't returned but I haven't used the tub either. The water was next to the rear wall close to the center of the trailer. It was maybe 12oz of water on the floor. It doesn't seem to be wet around the window or slide.

I had a similar situation in my bedroom during a rain storm. No idea where the water came from as walls,ceiling, etc were dry. Water hasn't been back since, and we've had a lot of rain since then. Thought maybe the dog had an accident, but ruled that out too.

I've had the same issue but it's due to water running down along the backsplash and down the where the tub meets the wall, I think caulking along the bottom of the tub surround would help but the dealer said to leave it......

I tow our 28DSBH with a 2013 F150 Ecoboost and we have no problems. We took a trip from central MN to the Blackhills this past summer and it traveled great. Our camping buddies have the same camper but he pulls it with a 2014 Ram and does fine as well. You'll hear alot of people telling you that you HAVE to tow with a bigger truck, but alot of us don't want a 3/4 ton for our daily drivers. You'll always have tradeoffs.

No doubt your F150 has the payload to handle the 28dsbh...they consistently have several hundred lbs more payload than Rams. If your buddy has a 1500 Ram, unless it is a stripped down model, he is way over his payload. I had a 2013 Ram 1500 Laramie and was on my way to the store to buy the 28dsbh until I hit a Cat scale...with family on board (3 and 6 year olds) I had 420lbs of payload left until I was over GVWR of 6800lbs..with nothing in the bed or any tongue weight to account for.

Ramtrucks.com has a very eye opening towing calculator, you can type your VIN and it will tell you your exact towing figures. I have a 2012 2500 that will tow 10,500 pounds if it's only me and an empty truck. Payload is 2459 lbs. if it's just me and I am carrying my max payload then my max towing is 8,041lbs and so on and so forth. the more stuff you're carrying the less you can tow and tongue weight counts towards payload which is where i went wrong with my last TV and current trailer. I was too close for comfort even though it towed fine and felt fine.

Will a crew cab 1500 tow a lot, yes, will you be overweight and have no room for payload? Probably.

And the poster that said a WDH will allow you to tow more I question your math because total trailer weight plus payload still counts towards the GCVW regardless of how much weight is re-distributed.

+1 on that calculator from RAM. I was looking at one of the new 2500s with the 6.4L Hemi and went on there. I got to thinking maybe I could save some $$ and go with the 5.7 (good, solid engine with some history), but when I started using the slider on that truck, equipped how I planned to buy it, I quickly eliminated that possibility as it didn't have quite enough for what I wanted.

I'm an obvious Ford fan, and honestly promote the EcoBoost over just about everything else in the half ton world BUT I will say there are certain EcoBoosts that are not up to the job of heavy towing. If you get yourself into a fully loaded Platinum you could see payloads under 1000lbs... However a similarly equipped Ram will be below even that, as stated above. All half tons are not created equal. Payload, gearing, transmission, and towing package are very important factors that make or break a truck as a good towing vehicle.
