Be prepared for low gas mileage while towing your 26BH. I just came back from South Dakota and I averaged around 7.5 - 8.0 MPG towing our 24FBS.

I had to check and make sure it wasn't an old post of mine....I traded a 2013 1500 for a 2015 2500...and was pulling a Jayco Jay Flight 26BH. The 1500 pulled it on flat ground ( I live in DE so there is a lot of flat ground) if we go to the mountains in PA or VA it would struggle horribly....a couple of times I thought I was going to tear it up.
Traded the truck in Jan...pulled the 26BH until May...what a world of difference. Traded in MAY to A 27RLS(heavier)...headed for Staunton VA the end of Oct...that'll be the test...

That doesn't bother me,that's about what I was getting towing with my 1500.As far as not towing,I lost 1.5 mpg's but I'm driving the new truck like a grandpa vs the old truck like a teenager.

Towing with our 2500 HD we have gotten at best 9.5, worst was when we brought the camper home bucking a head wind with gusts up to 30 mph, we got 6.5. But, I too drive it like a grandpa. Not towing the best I have gotten is 17.5. I'm satisfied with the truck completely.
