2006 Flagstaff 27bhss
Good evening all,
Looks like we will be purchasing a 2006 FLAGSTAFF 27BHSS. Dry weight is approx 4900lbs. Been pulling a 1991 Coleman Chesapeake PU. No brakes and when I don't like the few or don't feel like backing up straight I just picked it up. Going from a 50lb van pulling a 5lb camper to the flip side. It looks like I should be able to pull it from what I can see. Any suggestions or preferences in weight distribution Reese vs. Blue Ox and brake controllers? Going to have either Restless Wheels or Reines RV (both Manassas VA) Center put both on so I will be done right (I hope). Tks in advance for any info, insight or suggestions.
PS:my Siberian husky Stryker would like to know of any dog friendly preferably somewhere North/cold of DC to camp.
I found some info in the owner manual. Under the Trailer Towing Table I get the following.
Engine (EFI) 5.8L
Rear Axle Ratio 3.55
Max GCWR 12,000LB (5,443Kg)
Trailer Weight Range 0-6,900Lb (0-2,994Kg)
Max Frontal Area or Trailer 60.
Rear Axle Code:19
Capacity: 3,800Lbs (1,723Kgs)
The 2 dealers close to me have either the Blue Ox (Reines RV Manassas VA) or Reese (Restless Wheel Manassas VA) weight distribution kits. Has anyone used these systems or dealers?
