28WP

I don't see many posts on the 28WP, I'm a new owner of one and would like to know what others who own the same have to say about it. I have one season (half) since buying and we love it. No problems at all with it. So what are you all using for towing yours?

I just bought a good clean 2008
Cherokee Wolf Pack 27. Pick it up next week. Not sure if the only difference between the 27 and 28 model is one foot? I really like the floor plan with the walk around front queen bed that you can flip up for more floor space. Is your 28 like that?

Sorry, didn't answer your question.
I plan to pull the 27 WP with my 2011
F-150 4x4 V-6 twin turbo Ecoboost.
Rented a toy hauler a week ago that was loaded to 9,000 lbs. Weighed my truck with full fuel, two adults, two pups and about 100 lbs of stuff. Truck weighed in at 6,500 lbs. With
the 9,000 lb trailer, it put me right at the max combined truck and trailer limit of 15,500. Truck is rated to pull more than 9,000 lbs but doing so exceeds the max combined limit.
I'm impressed with the truck.
With the cruise set at 60, it pulled the 9,000 pound trailer up some pretty steep Arizona mountain grades and the engine RPM never exceeded 2,000. The mpg dropped down though to 10-12. I usually get 22-24 mpg on the hwy without a trailer.
My 27WP has a dry weight of only 5,800 lbs and a GVWR of 8,000.
Won't have any trouble with the F-150 Ecoboost.
Can't wait to try it out.

Sounds like we have basically the same setup. And yes, the bed is the same in our trailer. It is a nice feature. We are out east in Kentucky and we look forward to maybe taking ours out that way. Happy Trails.

We are in Arizona in the winter.
Idaho in the summers.
Plan to come back east with the rig someday.
We might just pass each other on the freeway.

We have a 2014 28wp that we love. Only problem we had was that the fresh water line was squeezed between the frame and floor and would restrict water floor sometimes. If there was more weight on the slide side, it would allow water to flow most of the time. Had a dealer repair for $300.00 and was submitted for warrantee but denied according to dealer.
I tow with a 2011 2500hd with a duramax. I set the cruise at 70, push the sway control button and relax. I use to pull with a 2002 GMC 2500hd but I knew I would kill the trucks transmission in the mountains. If you buy a bigger truck than you need it doesn't have to work as hard and personally you won't have to work as hard either.

Sorry to hear about the water issue, if you bought it new I can't see how they could deny the claim. Although I've never had to file a claim for anything. Right after buying ours the door in the back would not open, I took it back to the dealer and they just swapped out the door lock mechanism.
I agree on your comments on the tow vehicle, I'm well aware that I am limited to where I can go because I have a 1/2 ton. I'm in Louisville and we basically rv in KY, IN and Michigan -all flat land drives. We do love TN and GA but I doubt if I will take it in those directions until I move up to a more appropriate tow vehicle.
Happy Trails!!!

I have the 2012 27WP and I tow it with a Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 with the 5.3L engine and an Equal-i-zer hitch. Tows fine on flat land but the engine was screaming a few times when we took it out west through the mountains. Of course it was maxed out on weight but towed well. I've made some upgrades and had a couple of warranty issues with the trailer, but I'm very happy with the toy hauler.
