We had a 26BH and pulled with a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab 4x4. Did it do the job? Yes. Was it happy in the mountains? No. If we had a high wind day I was exhausted and I had my WD hitch dialed in. We switched to a 2011 Silverado 2500HD crew cab 4x4 gas and it was a whole different story. I could drive all day in any conditions and wasn't fatigued at all. We lost our 26BH to hail last year and in preparation to getting a new camper have ordered a 2015i GMC 3500HD SLT crew cab 4x4 Duramax/Allison. I would rather have too much truck and be comfortable than not enough.

I have a 26bh for a year now and I had Zero problem with the trailer. I am towing with a half ton with no problem. However I lived in a plain where the land is flat down south. It just me and one or two of my kids that come along. I love the 26bh and this is my second Jayco purchases. I will buy another Jayco!

This July I will be pulling my 2005 Jayco 27BH to Montana from California for the 5th consecutive year. TV is a 2006 Ford F-150 5.4 . Myself, my wife and our 3 kids....ages 11,7 and 6 enjoy the 2 week trip each year. The only leak ever was a simple fix in 2011 at the TV antenna perf. Roof is still in good repair - I tend to the Dicor self-leveling product for upkeep at seams and perfs. The "need" for a slideout is not present - maybe in the future. Huge storage is a benefit.
