It's kind of a mid range, they have a 3.08 also. I had a 2013 with the 3.08 and it wouldn't pull anything.
It didn't get any better mileage than the 2008 I had with 3.73 or the 2015 I now have with 3.42. They all got 18-20 mpg.

I hope you enjoy the new Rezerve. We picked up an RFZ27BH 5th wheel last fall, got it out a couple times before wintering and loved it, has just enough features to make the trips super comfortable with 3 kids, but still giving us the disconnected/camping feeling that our family prefers.

Should I figure on 500 extra to the 8,000 pounds or more then that?
Actual weight from new on the way home weight till now, about 400 lbs. That 400 lbs isn't including propane or battery.

I could see how it could get to 1000 lbs, especially for full timers, but we just don't have that much stuff. We are paper plates and plastic cups people. Have a couple reusable plastic plates and metal silverware, but other than that I use the plastic tubs and load things in there and weigh them.

Generator 50 lbs, tools 25 lbs, kitchen stuff 30 lbs. Blankets, pillows, folding chairs, 10 gallons of water....all plastic leveling blocks and chocks...some games not much else.

Your dealer should be able to tell you the yellow sticker weight on your exact unit. That should be pretty close....not counting battery and full propane.

Congrats on the new rig.
