Need more information - what year is the truck, 4x4 or 4x2, quad cab or mega cab, etc. To understand the trucks capacity we need the actual setup.

Mike,
I see you are looking for a travel trailer. I am looking for a fifth wheel. I have a 2012 Cruiser 28RKX, bought in April of 2012. I have the 2+5 Warranty and have scheduled with Andi Miles to take it back to CR to have the annual inspection done and have them repack the bearings and check the brakes etc. I have less than 2,000 miles on my unit and have never had any problems with it. I have boondocked with it many times and used it in full-hookup situations. Everything works as advertised. Not sure what you are looking for but I would rather sell mine than trade it in as they don't give you squat. If you're interested let me know maybe we can work a deal.

Jim

Looks like the only problem would be hitch weight. You are over on every configuration of 4x4 or 4x2 with the Cummins and Auto transmission.

At our local RV show a few weeks back, there was a guy that was talking to a salesman, and he asked the same question. Said he had a Ram 2500 ext cab long box and asked if he could pull the Lincoln that we were in. The salesman said, "Personally sir, I would not hook this size of a unit up to anythign but a 1-ton dually."





I haven't checked the weights or anything on either truck, but just telling you what I overheard a salesman say.Edited by: JeremyN

I got this off of Pickuptrucks.com, hope this helps. Looks like a dually would be your best option.

Hitch weight of 2700 lbs - as others have said you exceed the GVWR of the truck. Pin weight with the trailer loaded will probably be closer to 2900 lbs.

Truck weight will go up a couple of hundred lbs. setting it up to tow. Then add fuel, passengers and anything else in the truck will add more to the payload

I would say a dual wheel unit is needed. Even with a 3500HD SRW with a GVWR of 11,600 lbs or so you'll exceed the GVWR of the truck.

There is a rare event. Most salesmen will let you drag it out with a Kia if it means they get the sale.

That is too much trailer for the truck. If you already own the truck, go load it up with all passengers,pets, gear and a full tank of fuel. Take it loaded to a local truck scale (www.catscale.com) and weigh it. Make sure you weigh each axle on a separate pad. This will give you individual axle weights and a total weight of your truck. Next look at your door sticker to find out your max rawr and your vehicle gvwr. Look in manual for your gcwr. Subtract scaled rear axle weight from max rawr to see how much room you have for hitch plus pin weight. Subtract total scaled vehicle weight from gvwr to find out your available payload. Subtract the total scaled vehicle weight from gcwr to get your adjusted towing capacity. Your 5er should fall within all of these ratings. If you haven't bought the truck yet and really want this 5er then buy a diesel dually for it.
