I am supposed to get my 27dbud ( only a couple hundred pounds heavier than the tbud and a few pounds lighter on the tongue.) in about 10 days. Pulling it with a max tow Eco myself. Everything looks good from a tow capacity stand point. I am going to have to watch the loading of the camper and the truck to keep the tongue weight and overall weight on the truck in line. Other than that I am not concerned. I took out a similar sized camper that was loaded up for camping and " test drove" it behind the truck. Power wasn't a concern, truck did great, I am being careful about weight on the truck and going to enjoy the ride.... Now, I just can't wait for the dealer to get the thing.... :-)

I really like that all the trim and white plastic is now black. I have a 2012 and started towing with an 06 Nissan Titan and upgraded to a 2012 F250. Any chance you have a picture of e storage on the G?

Here you go... these were taken the day I looked at it on the lot. I moved the spare tire elsewhere to give myself more room. The only problem I can see is I'll be lost if/when I get another TT and I don't the storage space... it really holds a lot.

TV

Ok, I have the 2014 26TBUD. It appears that the only difference between this year and last year's model is the black trim. My question is, what size TV can be mounted. I have found a 32" TV that is about 29 1/2" wide. But I am not sure about clearance when spinning the mount to the bedroom. Has anybody else mounted a 32" and are there any manufacture specs that I may have missed?

I have my doubts a '32 would fit. Possibly with a really slim mount. I chose a '26 with a mount that can tilt.

Pulling mine with a Supercrew F150 5.4L and I have no issues at all. Runs at about 1900 rpms at 90 km/h with plenty of power when needed...

We have a 2011 TBUD that we have had for 3 years. Love the camper, it's been perfect for our family. The only gripes I have at all is the size of the grey tank. That thing seems to fill way too quickly.

We went with a 19" flat screen and are currently looking for bigger.

Let me know what you go with. I am in no hurry to purchase. I just want to make the wisest decision when I have the funds to do so.
