My TT has a dry weight from the factory of 8380lbs. Loaded to camp it is closer to 9400lbs. With a TT of this size you will need a 3/4 ton TV.

Sounds heavy and will need to see about getting something in the 4800 to 5000 dry weight. What rear end is in your truck?

White Hawk 29SQB has similiar floorplan and is 2100 lbs lighter. Lots of folks on this forum seem quite happy with their White Hawks
With your 3.42 rear axle, your truck will be working very hard in the mountains even with this model.

Hey everybody. I have the same truck but a 2011. I just picked up my first jayco today a 2011 eagle 322 fks. I had absolutely no problem towing it. In fact I had more trouble towing my trade in a 2004 homestead settler which is ligher but more boxy. I don't know if its good for the truck but at 2100 rpm at 110 kmh on flat and anywhere from 3 to 3500 rpm on hills I think it's okay.
