Our kids primarily watch the main TV from the dinette and we will watch from the sofa but it's usually for short periods of time, like when we watch the news. I've added a TV mount in the bedroom and will start packing a second TV so the kids can watch what they want at night and we can watch local channels.

TV is mounted on the wall between table and rear bunk. There is no issues watching it from couch.

Hey guys thanks for all the insight and ideas on the 26 bh ! Being my first TT I am learning a lot of stuff . I know my ram will do it just a little green cause I have never towed one that large. This is the TT we like and all your input has really made up our minds. Keep the input coming and I will keep you guys posted on my road to our new TT !!!

The Tundra does awesome pulling the trailer. We don't have any serious mountains around here but the hills we do have it pulls with no issues. I just run it in 5th gear and shift down to 4th if the need arises. If you have the 3.92 rear axle ratio, you will be perfectly fine. It'll be doggy with the 3.55 rear end unless you have the 8 speed tranny.

I ordered the truck ready to tow. I got the 8 speed 3.92 LSD and the brake controller all in the tow package. Tow mirrors as we'll. like I said I know the truck is good just haven't towed a big TT . Dealer said come back and I can take it for a spin. Thought that was good. That's good news thanks LiftedAWDAstro.

Cheers.....

I had a 2010 213 and traded it for a 2012 26BH. Get the BH you'll appreciate the additional room and better layout. If you have specific questions just ask away.

From the tow tests I have seen online, the Hemi, 8 speed and 3.92 gears tows as well as an eco-boost equipped F150 and they are both better than my Tundra! You will not have an issue except for cargo capacity. If you get bored and want to waste several hours, look up the Ike Gauntlet tow tests by The Fast Lane Truck on youtube. Pretty impressive tow vehicle out there now!

I have a 2013 26BH and tow with a 2013 F150 SCREW with 5.0L V8.
No problems at all with towing. Make sure you have a tow distribution hitch and you will be fine with a half ton.
We are a family of 4 and it suits our needs.

I love my 26bh. Perfect size for me and two growing kids. It tows well with my F150. I didn't want a larger trailer or a slideout for several reason. However it gets tights when having four people in it, but that doesn't bother me. Mine is 2014 model and just love it.

We just bought a 2014 26BH, and we love it! We've only had the time to take it out once, but I was able to use all of the features, and this is my first travel trailer. Very user friendly, easy to use, and we had no issues at all. The 26BH layout was bigger than I had wanted to start with, but after using it, this is definitely the layout for my family (2 young kids that LOVE their new bunks!) I was even surprised that my wife fell in love with it, as it really was MY dream, and it seemed at first she was just going along with it. She loves all of the kitchen features, and the bathroom (she was used to tent camping)... With this trailer, she's now bugging ME to go camping more! Nice surprise. I was also worried at first that I didn't have enough tow power with the F-150, but she really pulls with no problems. Haven't hit any real big hills yet with it, and I'm hoping that I don't have to upgrade my truck to the 250, but the trailer is so nice, that I would consider doing THAT before I will give up the trailer. I hope this helps!
