Also here with a 02 Dodge Ram 2500 with the Cummins and pulls the 29 foot Jayco eagle like its not there...

But find more on your specs the owners manual of the truck should provide what you need.

be careful

we bought our 2010 365bhs brand new. we love the floor plan. none other like it. we modified one bunk for a kennel for our Weimereiner. The AC on these units will not cool the bunk house section..poor design and no air flow. Jayco tells me the systems are not engineered. we have two airs with a total of 2.5 tons of ac and it wont cool 450 sq ft. back to the dealer in two weeks to let them try again for the 4 th time to "fix it". the ducts are not designed like your home so there is no way to build pressure. we love most everything else about it.
i pull with a 2007 F250 crew cab 4x4 with a Stroker. it pulled ok until i did engine mods. much better now. good luck!

I have your exact camper. My air in the bunkhouse was horrible and I live in Texas. I tried everything possible to fix the problem and I finally put a 3rd A/C unit in the bunkhouse. The door is one of the problems, because it will not let the return air go to the unit.

I own the same unit and tow it with a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 crew cab with a diesel and airbags. Have had no problem at all towing the larger 5th wheel.

We have a 2012 365BHS and my 03 Duramax 2500 SRW handles the unit without a problem. However, IF I was planning on pulling it alot (we leave ours perm parked for the most part) or on long trips, I would most likely step up to a 1 ton dually.

pin weight is pretty high for a SRW. DRW would be better. You're technically overloaded or very close to it with the SRW.

I have a 2012 365 Bhs and pull it with a 2011 Gmc Duramax 4x4. Pulls like a dream without any issues, did add airbags. And yes the air in the bunk room is not great on hot days, but my wife and I keep the camper so cold most of the times the kids stay in the bunk room where it is warm.

Shorty, don't take chances with your equipment. Make sure your truck is rated for the weight you intend to haul. Your truck tires have to be able to handle the tongue weight.
I've heard that an insurance company can refuse to pay for an accident if you are not driving a legal unit, because of weight ratings.
We have a 2013 Eagle Premier 365BHS that we bought a year ago. We took it from Ontario to Florida this past Winter. We live in the unit and we bought it for the two of us and use the rear bedroom as a sewing room for my wife who is a quilter. It is close to the maximum weight rating. We tow with a 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually with a 5.9 Cummins, 325 hp. When we get rolling it's great but it's hard to get moving especially on soft ground or on an uphill.

I have a 2006 GMC 2500HD Sierra Crewcab 4 wheel drive with the Duramax and Allison and also have a 2006 325BHS 5th Wheel. The truck pulls the trailer like a charm, this trailer weighs about 11,500 lbs loaded. So the truck is not over the front and rear GAWR but a bit over the GVWR, but under the max towing capacity of the truck. It could use some air bags as it hangs a little low at the back.

Saskatchewan is quite flat but we do have some valleys and truck doesn't miss a beat pulling through them.

I have put a 4" exhaust and removed the cat, and have a Banks 6 Pack with the Banks air intake.
