2015 Jayco White Hawk 33BHBS

Hello. I have finally decided to get a TT. My family loves the floor plan and looks of the 33BHBS. This will be our first TT. Looking to order this March (tax return).
Any info on a towing and sway control would be helpful on the length of trailer. I have a 2010 Toyota Tundra Crewmax.
Also, does anyone currently have this unit that they could share their experience?

Early spring is RV Home show time and maybe the best time to buy that TT. Get all your info together and best discount pricing you can come up with and hit the show. Show them the money and you'll get the price you want to pay. With all the competition at the show the last thing they want to see is you walking across the hall.

Congratulations and welcome! 2014 was our first season with a TT and the best advice we got was to take it slow and easy. We took that advice to heart and had a great first season.

We're thrilled with the way the Tundra handles the trailer and I'm sure you will be too. That said, we did add a Roadmaster Active Suspension to help with the overall ride quality - even with the WDH adjusted properly we were still getting quite a bit of bounce. I think the 2014 may have a softer suspension than yours though...

As far as WDH/Sway Control, there are almost as many opinions as there are forum members IMO for that length trailer you'll want integrated WDH/sway control, and you won't go wrong with either the Reese Dual Cam or Equal-i-zer. I have the Reese as that's what the dealer sold...

What is the payload of your truck and how many family members will be coming along? Jayco list the dry tongue weight of 865lbs. Your tongue weight will be in excess of 1000lbs most likely. If this is your first trailer have you crunched all the numbers?
Your Tundra will certainly pull it but you may be close or over your GVWR if you have a big family along.

As far as WDH.... Equalizer and Reese are the most popular and well respected. Blue Ox Swaypro is another one to look at. We are happy with ours.

Cheers

Tundra has a 10.4K tow rating. 5.7 liter v-8. We have 4 total family members. 2 adults and 2 kids under 14.
33BHBS states 8500 Gvwr.
I've been told the equilizer is one of the better systems by several different brand dealers.

Looking forward to pricing at the Ft Worth RV show this upcoming weekend.
