and we were lucky too with ours cause it was the floor plan we wanted and it had the hitch and was on the lot so we got a smoking deal on it

the wife and I are very happy with it

Awesome!! That is exactly what I needed to know. For a minute there I thought I wasn't writing in English. lol

I was planning on having an aftermarket hitch somehow installed & reinforced to the frame by a welder so that I could pull my Teryx4 side by side. I am so glad that they discontinued the bike rack/ storage tray and had the hitch installed instead.

With the 3,000lbs towing and 300lbs tongue weight capacity, this would work perfectly fine for me.


My 2015 5'er came off line the other day. Now if it could only be transported to Salt Lake City- Utah, ASAP.

-P.K

that is one of the biggest reasons i got the 5th, we liked the 26BH but i wanted to bring my boat camping and i wasnt totally comfortable with doing it behind the tag along, now i just need a 3/4 ton so i can bring the boat

they were just both options, you can option it with the hitch or the bike rack, mine just had the hitch, what you should have down was ordered it with the hitch cause i bet it will be alot more expensive to have it added at the dealer

Trust me, 99% of owners contemplating/ embarking on this mission already know the ramifications/ consequences associated with warranty voidance. Thanks for the reminder though.

Carey,
With the Jayco Eagle Touring line, there wasn't any option for the Hitch. Rather, only the foldable bike/ storage rack.

It has been like this until recently when Jayco decided to do away with the foldable bike/ storage rack. But to have the hitch instead.

Like I said, I ordered mine with the bike rack. But it is coming with the hitch. I confirmed this with the factory.

Do those of you who add a hitch behind the 5er or TT , to tow a boat, also put a camera back there?

The rear view Camera is my planned #1 mod as soon as I take possession of the 5'er. Its not only good for 'behind the trailer tow' but I look at it as my rear view mirror.

I intent to buy the 'Rear View Safety' unit from Costco and mount the monitor directly in front of the trucks review view mirror via a suction cup then have the camera constantly on while on the road.

This way, if I need to see who or what is behind me, I simply look up (just the same way I would into a rear view mirror).

Helps in backing up the trailer and changing lanes too.

Smile Towing capacity ????

We recently purchased a Jayco 27.5Bh, new. It came with a reese hitch with 3000 lb towing rating. We are getting ready to take an atv trip to the mountains. It is legal to double tow in co. We have been doung so for years. I am worried that our towing trailer, plus gas cans, plus a polaris 500 sportsman,kawazaki 400 atv, a honda 70 dirt bike and a honda 450 dirt bike will be to much weight on a maiden voyage. I am thinking we should leave one 4 wheeler. I would hate to bend frame. Any ideas.....
