Looking at the Jayco site, the current 33RLDS does have 3 slides, with a small wardrobe slide up front. Interesting that they didn't give it a "TS" designation.

I have 2 rear living slides and one in the bedroom/bathroom and its a 33 RLDS. Maybe earlier models didnt have 3rd slide ? I don't know, but I do.. The slide is half in the bathroom for tons of towel storage and half in the bedroom for tons of wardrode storage. We really like it..

I know it sounds cliche but you will never regret having too much truck when towing. I just went from a F150 Max tow ecoboost which had a payload of 1640. After towing to California from Washington, I realized that I needed more truck as even with my lightweight trailer, I only had about 300lbs payload remaining after occupants and loading the trailer conservatively.

If you are dead set on a 1/2 ton, consider the F150 Max Tow HD package, which gives you an extra 500lbs payload. You will be stuck however with the 6.2 V8 or ecoboost engine options.

Good luck with your search.

We haven't looked at any new Jayco floor plans for a while. I wonder why they didn't label it a TS.

Never though much about what RLDS meant. I guess Rear Living Dual Slide? So with 3 slides it should be RLTS for triple slide? Whatever you call it, we like the floor plan. Lots of room for rainy days and the bathroom is 2 steps from our bed

I pull a 338RLTS with a 3/4 ton, no issues. The Equalizer is a great hitch and the one use.

As a lot of people have said already.A half ton is gonna be iffy at best.What a lot of people dont realize is ,how fast do you wanna STOP.For the most part 3/4 and 1 tons have larger brakes with greater stopping force.This would be a main reason not to go with a 1/2 ton IMO.Scott

Tongue weight 1060 lbs and loaded trailer 10,300 lbs.

You now have a really nice combination. It will tow and you won't even know it's back there.
