2016 27.5RLTS Eagle HT

Okay guys the wife and I went last weekend looking at this 5'er and we love the floor plan and looking on getting it, so the question I have that I should be okay towing this with my 2016 2500 6.4L /w 4.10 gears, my towing is 15,500 lbs and my payload is 3190 lbs? It's just going to be my wife and I just getting away for short trip, probably 200 to 300 miles away.

Thanks guys I would love to hear your input on this, the wife and I are excited to get it and start camping, I'm retired military and will be spending some time on some of the ground for military.


This is the spec on the 27.5 RLTS.

Unloaded Vehicle Weight (lbs) View Definition 7880

You have more than enough truck to pull this camper.

Agreed, you've got plenty of truck. I'm towing the 29.5 no problem, which is basically the same weight, and my truck specs are a bit less than yours.

We love that floor plan too. In fact we got word that our 2017 27.5 RLTS landed at the dealer today. Going to be tough waiting until Saturday to go see it.

Oh thank you so much sir, I have being wanting one for 20+ years and finally I can see the light at the end of the tunnel now.


The wife and I talk about getting one almost daily. I know it's a matter of time so when I can see pics of other it easy the pain a little, if you know what I mean. Thank you.
