mesuzee..... We haven't decided on building a ladder or going with the aluminium one mentioned above. I think we are going to go with the aluminium one. We have the same truck as you just the 2004. We haven't been out in our TT yet. How do you find the towing?

What tow vehicle do you think I would need to pull the 284BHBE? I have a 2015 GMC Sierra Denali Crew Cab 6.2L w/8-Speed transmission. I believe the tow rating is either 9,400lbs or 9,200lbs.

I am hoping to pull the trigger today!

Thanks!

well I cant answer that but you can look in the door and see what you can tow weight wise behind that truck ... is it a 2500 ? does it have tow package? these are things that might help someone to know what your truck is capable of. Also keep in mind that the final weight of the trailer can vary from the info they have on the jayco sight for that trailers unloaded delivered weight. On mine it was about 375 lbs heavier than the brochure. All that might be options I am not sure but I know a lot of folks have been surprised when they look in that door of the camper to find out it weighs more than they thought .... good luck

Thanks for the quick reply PaintinFool3!
It is a 1,500 with towing package rated at 9,200lbs towing with a 1,200lb tongue weight. I haven't looked at the Placard yet but I will as soon as I can.

I would have no concerns about towing the 284BHBE with that tow vehicle, but Paintinfool is right that you should look at the stickers: the Tow vehicle's and the trailer and crunch the real numbers. Don't worry about being conservative and overestimating the expected weight of the trailer. Better to have too much tow vehicle than not enough. That said, the Eagle is a great looking trailer.
