Officially a Jayco owner - Eagle HT 29.5 BHDS

After almost 3 months of waiting, we took delivery of our 29.5 BHDS yesterday. PDI was uneventful, just a couple items to fix, which I'll end up doing myself after the dealer gets the parts (front cap decal is crooked and the USB ports under the kitchen counter are DOA).

Ended up going with the dealer recommended Reese 16K Pro Series paired with the Revolution pin box. The trailer sits just a bit nose high, but after loading it up I think it will end up just about perfectly level. All hitch adjustments btw, didn't have to move the axles down to the lower shackle holes after all, and I still have about 6" of clearance to the bed rails.

This is my first 5th wheel and I gotta say, what a big difference pulling this compared to a TT! Backing up wasn't as tricky as I feared either.
