Jayco Seismic Wave 355W

I am curious if anyone has seen or ordered the new 2016 Jayco Seismic wave 355W? I am very interested in this unit, however, it is 700lbs more than my truck is rated for, if it is fully loaded. Is anyone concerned with that additional weight? Also, how do they measure total length, I have noticed that there are some campgrounds that do not have space for anything over 40 feet, this comes in at 41'11". Any comments and guidance would be greatly appreciated. Also, ,y tow vehicle is a 2012 Ford F350(SRW) Super Duty.


Thanks,

Greg

You will be limited in where you can go. Our rig is 38.5' and we can't get into sites we used to prefer. You do give up something for the additional space.

Looks like a new tow vehicle is in your future!

We tow our '13 351RLTS with a '13 350 SB 6.7 2WD. The 5er is 39' and scaled at 12700#, we have 3020# on the pin. The combined package is very stable and tows well. At 42' I would expect you to be a bit heavier but you may still be in the 350 range but I'd guess getting close to the Rear GAWR. I'd take the sticker weights, add 1000# of "stuff" and compute the expected pin weight and compare that to the rear axle weight from a CAT Scale (add your expected pin weight) and go from there.
The length is another topic, we camp in fairly nice CG's and haven't dry camped yet and have stuck with CG's that can deal with the length.

James, I put airbags on my 2014 and it helped with the sag. There truly wasn't as much sag as I had expected, but there was in deed some. I put the bags on myself and it wasn't difficult at all.
