Just got my 2016 27RR yesterday and today we're at the coast Portland Texas enjoying the RV. Love it pulled good with my F150 2008 Harley Davidson edition. One thing you do need the WDH hitch and the sway bar being it is 33' long and it did sway on when I picked up from the dealer I didn't have it on being I needed to drill the holes for the bolts so did when I got home and was ready for the morning drive down here and it pulled good avg speed was 65mph.

Congrats! We have spent a lot of time in the TH this summer. We still have some camping left before we call it a season.

Tested the camper out over the weekend. Didn't sleep well on the queen bed or the convertible in the garage. Will need to upgrade mattress or find a mattress topper. Researching WDH's and found SwayPro by Blue Ox to be a possibility. First official camping trip scheduled for weekend of September 18th. We are very happy with the rest of the features and the roominess of the 27RR. It is my first camper and I love the floorplan, it is what I had been wanting for 10 plus years.

We have a 26RR and use an Equalizer hitch. The tongue weight is 925lbs without the bike in and it tows very well.
For the bed we put on a foam topper and are very happy with it.

Another update, loaded camper with the essentials and my Harley. Was a hand full to drive to say the least. I decided to have the SwayPro from Blue Ox WDH installed. What a difference! Was pricier then most I've seen but offers weight distribution and sway control, also, no need to remove for backing up.

Wdh is a must have for a half ton pulling a trailer like that. I don't understand the backing up comment though. Can you elaborate?

Toby, some of the comments made by others, not sure of brands, said in order to back and maneuver trailer, they had to disconnect the sway control arms.

What a pain that would be. I remember someone doing that so it would be quiet but he was doing it by choice.

I have heard the same about taking some off, but all that I had used always said backing up with it on was fine. Now this was using those cheap sway control units that had the little balls on them and the hand crank. I used to do it by choice backing into home vase due to clearance issues, needed the tail drop for clearing the driveway.

Equalizer bars are noisy but when they make noise you know they are working. I just close my ears to the cries of pain from bystanders, howling of dogs, and any other collateral effects. They work very well.
