Keep in mind that the Jayco published dry weight (UVW) of 5,710lbs on the 28DSBH doesn't reflect the actual ship weight...., one JOF member had an actual ship weight just under 6,000lbs (yellow sticker) on his 28DSBH, but may not be an issue in your case. Actual "ship weights" can add another 100lbs to 600lbs on top of Jayco's published dry weights (UVW) depending on model HTT/TT/FW.

Hmmm, I wasn't aware of that but it makes sense. I'm assuming the ship weight includes the battery and full propane tanks? Or are there things that are included in shipping weight?

I just did the same trade from a 26 bh to the white hawk 28 dsbh the white hawk pulls better and I get better mileage by 1 mpg and I use a 08 Tahoe and I travel with a full water tank. No up grades on the Tahoe.

The Ship Weight does include the weight of the LP tanks filled even though they are shipped empty, but doesn't include the weight of the battery (by RV dealer) or any other dealer items. If the dealer adds more than 100lbs of weight they are required to update the factory Ship Weight yellow sticker (adjust CCC).

The yellow sticker weight of my White Hawk is 432# more than the published unloaded vehicle weight. Fully loaded CAT scale weight 5960 trailer axle and 720 hitch. This includes 1/3 tank of fresh water. (about 100#) This is about 1000# more than my old 26BH. This is 1280 lbs above the listed unloaded vehicle weight. If you load your trailer in a similiar way you wil have around 6600 total with 700 on the hitch.
I would think your truck should be ok with this and I would not make any mods until I tried it out.
