New owner of a 272rlis

Hey Guys, and gals for that matter. Took delivery of our 2016 Heritage Glen a few week ago. We traded in our class A coach. Mostly happy with it so far. Heres a pic of the rig.

As an Oh-by-the-way I did weight mine on a cat scale, basically empty she had 1,144 tongue weight and 6630 on the axles =7,974 Total. Not an issue for towing but would be interested in what yours scales out as. I'm using the Andersen WDH and mine tows every bit as good as my 37 ft 5er. With my 07 5.9 CTD I get 13.5 or there about towing. I think the newer Rams get even better. I tow at around 62MPH, not that I have to but prefer to.

Nice rig! We've been really happy with our Heritage 327RES.

I am going to weigh mine on the Friday before labor day weekend. Although it will be loaded. But only with the usual stuff. I am using a husky WDH. It appears to do ok but I get quite a bit of creaking and popping when I am turning. And the trailer seems to pull good. I have only been on one trip with it and we averaged 10mpg going and 9 coming home against a horrendous head wind. That was running 65 mph. I was hoping to get closer to 12 but I have to take into account my tires and wheels and a few other things I have done to my truck. Either way its still better than what I was getting in my motorhomes. So I am still pretty happy.
