2016 Jay Feather 25BH vs Jay Flight 27BHS

Hello!
We are looking at trading in our X18D on either a 2016 Jay Feather 25BH or the Jay Flight 27BHS. I am leaning towards the feather for its weight as I am concerned that the flight will start to be to much on our 15 3.5 EcoBoost Max tow w/ 3.55s once loaded. I do like the tank sizes on the flight and some of the other extras however.

Would appreciate any outside perspectives.

We just upgraded from a Jay Feather x20e to a Jay Flight 26RKS. We have a 13 3.5 EcoBoost Max tow w/3.73. So pretty close.

Unfortunately we haven't taken delivery yet, so I can't tell you how it will tow. One thing is for sure, we won't be putting much in the truck as we will be close on payload.

I tow a Jayco Jay flight 32 bhds with a 2013 eco with 3.73 gears which it handles fine. I would go for the trailer u prefer as you aren't going to have issue towing either

I just bought a 27BHS and I'm loving it so far (at least in the driveway). I am taking it out this weekend, and am pulling it with at '15 Silverado 1500. It shouldn't be a problem at all, but I can't really carry anything in the truck when I'm towing. Taking full water with me, but only going about 30 miles. Should be a good test of capability.
