Not looking at it I think it's about 9,900. It reminds me of one of those "lets stay under something type number"
It pulls better than any of my other 4 campers. It's solid and although heavy for a TT I do like the stable feeling.

Bob, According to Jayco's technical spec sheet The approximate unloaded vehicle weight dry is 9195 lbs.
Of course that's with minimal options, They list the dry Hitch weight at 1145 lbs. With a GVWR of 10950lbs.

Eldermike & WE3ZS......

Thanks again for the replies.

Knowing the published Dry Weights and Ship Weights will be helpful for those that may be considering the 338RLTS....., especially when crossing over into the loaded 10,000lb neighborhood for a TT.

Bob

Yes it's heavy but again it's a joy to pull in wind and traffic compared to my last TT which was a 34 footer designed to be 1/2 ton towable.

Most trailers with a heavy hitch and the wheels mounted towards the back of the trailer tow well. From my experience the closer the wheels are to the center of the trailer the more it wants to move around.

Grey Tanks

We just picked up our 338 RETS Saturday Feb. 15 and drove straight to Daytona for the races. Very surprised when Grey 1 filled up and Grey 2 was empty. Called Camping World where we bought it they were useless, called Jayco and got support but the only information they supplied was that Grey 2 was dedicated to the washer. Thanks for the EQ idea. I am going to try it. 65 gallon grey water capacity was one reason we bought it.

Overall we are happy with the unit. We have an issue with the refrigerator being mounted crooked and it pinched the bottom corner of the seal and cut it so the magnet slides out. Hopefully Camping World will address this.

I am glad I found this forum!

Why is it that Jayco seems to supply their upscale trailers (Eagle line up- etc..) with RV mattresses instead of residential mattresses. A 76 inch mattress just doesn't cut it. 80 inches should be standard like most other upscale trailers. I remember our 2007 Eagle 322FKS had a RV king size bed. It was 72" by 76". I could never sleep in it straight out and I'm only 6 foot. By the time you put a pillow in it and tuck the covers in at the bottom I had to sleep on the diagonal.
Happy trails,

It should be noted that in your latest thread you were able to confirm that Jayco is offering residential size mattresses (good to know):
