I'm pulling a 2012 29.5RKS with a 06 gmc 1/2 ton with trailer package and timberns bumpers on rear, It sits level and pulls it good but i don't pull it in hills or long runs, usually about 60 miles from home. I wouldn't want any bigger of a 5er behind it. The 26.5 you have should pull easier i would think. Also with the kitchen in the rear alot of the weight is taken off the front hitch.

I have on order a 2012 23.5 RBS. Just got word it was built last week, waiting for the dealer to give me a call to pick it up. This is worse than a kid waiting for Christmas.

If both our truck (F250) & Jayco are finished on time, we are planning our first trip to Cape Cod & Mount Desert Island (re-living our honeymoon of 42 yrs ago).

Where you going in Cape Cod? We're heading there next month and then on up to Maine.

If your T V is an F250, don't worry about towing problems. I pull a 2009 25.5RKS with a 2002 F250 7.3 litre stupid duty power smoke. You won't even know it's back there. Congrats on the new 5'er and 42 years of Married Bliss!!!!!

First time I've heard that one. Intentional or are you the victim of auto-spelling correction? :hihi:
