Wildcat 29BHS Towing & Questions!

New to the forums. We just purchased a 2012 Wildcat 29BHS. Still being built in the factory. Hope to pick up in May. Still a little unclear on the towing. I plan on getting a WDH with swaybars. I will be pulling with a Toyota Tundra CrewMax 5.7L V8. Will this be enough? Doing the calculations, it seems I will be ok. Any help would be appreciated.

Just looking for overall thoughts on this trailer. The quality seems to be their. We were really considering a Cougar with the same floorplan. Did we make the right choice? Yes I realize it's pretty subjective.

Any recommendations where to buy the WDH and from whom. What are the best brands? Reese?

Are people having good luck with the instant on demand hotwater heaters. That was a selling feature for my wife.

Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks in advance.

Congrats on the new RV! You can drive yourself crazy second guessing if you made the right choice or not. Stop! Cougars are real nice, my brother brought one that he loved, but Wildcats are real nice too. I don't think you can go wrong with either.

Take Care.

Not really sweating the purchase. They both look like great trailers, the FR Wildcat looked a little bette quality. The Instant Hot water sold me and my wife. We've already paid for it, so we really can't go back. Can't wait.
