Should have purchased a Ford F250 or Ram 2500, bigger is better when towing. Towed a 2013, 33' Cougar TT, 85k GVWR with a 2010 F150, CC 2WD, 5.4 w/3:73 gears. Don't recall WD hitch hook-up but did have sway bars. This was OK but right on the edge. With that much length and weight, you will feel the semi's coming up on you as they tend to suck you toward the center line, BE PREPARED!

Welcome to the forum and good luck - safe travels.

I agree your gonna be pretty close to your max payload. I dont think you will have any issues with power, or stopping honestly. I think if you have any issues it will be with squatt on the back of your truck. This is actually an easy fix if you see more squatt then you like or if the truck feels a little squarely when being passed by big rigs, or wind or road conditions. I have put rear airbags and onboard air compressor on all of my truck from my half ton years ago to my 1 ton now. I wont own a truck without them. You may look into it. There are other alternatives that are less expensive that others swear by also. I believe Firestone, and ride rite make compressor and airbag kites that go for around $900 and if your handy you can install them in a few hours. I've had all mine professionally installed just to avoid any issues later. It runs about another $200 for install. Like I said if the price scares you there are alternatives that could work fine for you in the $150 to $500 range. Much less expensive then another new truck... good luck

You seem to have your ducks in a row.
I would recommend an easy to install product called
Airtabs. They change the airflow coming off the back of the trailer to a circular pattern that stops drag and sway from winds and passing semis. They also improve fuel economy by up to 15% I have had them on my 34 ft 5ver for 5 years and they work Awesome!

Thank you once again for everyone’s thoughts, suggestions and input.

Apparently the 27BHB is now one of Jayco’s top sellers and they are hard to come by right now. Luckily our dealer just had one allocated to them and we secured the unit with a deposit. It just happens to be specked just the way we’re wanting and should be here mid-March.

Cheers and cold beers!
