Maiden trip frist impression, just wow, pulled like a champ in the New Hampshire white mountain, the ecoboost haul the weight efficiently average 23.5 liter per 100 km ( 10.4 mpg US ) at 60mph . Trailer very stable even in the wind with the equalizer 4 hitch.

The Jayco trailer perform flawlessly, very few thing to repair for the dealer, one is the frame around the front door, its not installed properly the rubber barely touch the door frame and the whole assembly was bent slightly during installation, so Im looking at a new door frame assembly other than that, very good trip, Jayco build us a very nice trailer

Nicely done...some great insight for me in seeing your numbers on the way that the WDH spreads the weight between the vehicles. I have been trying to figure out how big I can safely go on a new TT without exceeding my Ram 1500 payload capacity but haven't had any "real" numbers to see how much of the tongue weight applies to the truck payload vs being shifted back to the trailer axles.

The 792 lbs in tongue weight is spread approx. 75% to the tow vehicle and would count as "payload" and 25% to the trailer axles (TV weight goes up from 5918 to 6512 so 594 lb increase, and trailer axles go up from 4686 to 4884 lbs or almost 200 lbs).

Again, thanks for the great info and congrats on the setup...
