Victor,

Might be a typo, but I assume that your 11,805lbs should read 11,085lbs....., please confirm. But yes, your weights are heading in the right direction for the 2500HD.

With the 1,665lbs being the 'as-shipped' cargo capacity, then the 'as-shipped UVW would be 11,085lbs (12,750 - 1,665) ?

Victor,

Ok, thanks for the follow-up.

"Hypothetical" (conservative) 317RLOK loading: (11,085lb UVW + 800lb Cargo + No Water) = 11,885lbs loaded. At 11,885lbs loaded = 2,377b to 2,971lb loaded pin weight (20% to 25%). IMO around 20% seems to be mentioned often...., but we all have different loading habits.

As referenced in a prior post, don't forget to subtract the weight of a fifth wheel hitch from your TV's available payload capacity.

As mentioned, a TV CAT scale visit (if possible) is worth it's weight in gold in these type of discussions ..., only $9. The CAT will tell you if the 317RLOK is a good match based on "your" TV's available payload capacity and your anticipated FW loading.

I'm reluctant to say the 317RLOK is an ideal match not knowing your TV's available payload capacity and your FW loading habits (not saying it isn't possible)...., I hope the above info will help in your do-diligence.

Bob

Vic,

One way to get a better idea of your actual truck is to look in the drivers door jamb for the yellow sticker. Will state "All occupants and cargo not to exceed XXXXlbs".

What is this amount?

Remember, any accessories added will decrease the payload as well: step bars, push bar, bed liner, etc.

But that will give you a closer idea.

Good luck shopping!!!

Victor,

When you have the opportunity, please let us know what your 2500HD's CAT scale results are. I know it will be useful weight data for yourself, but others will also benefit when reviewing a JOF member's "actual" scaled weights based on one's specific loading and TV configuration...., can be very helpful.

Thanks in advance.

Bob

Folks, I can't even imagine a dealer letting a potential buyer out the lot with a FW that they potential buyer doesn't own yet. Arnt these "get it weighed" discussions getting old? Every single thread of "can I pull such and such" are usually just the OP wanting to hear what they want to hear.

Without buying an RV, bringing it home, loading it, and then putting the family and the dog into the truck will any of these questions ever be properly answered.

Sorry to rant, I'll get off the soapbox now, but after a decade of these questions on this and other forums.... Aren't we all getting a bit tired?

Craig,

I don't believe so..., and the JOF members willing to respond to the "new" JOF member's questions doesn't suggest otherwise.

I believe I have posted my truck only weights before, but for reference in this thread for others here is the truck only weight:

2013 Chevy Silverado LT CCSB 4x4 6.0- Accessories are: cab high fiberglass topper, Line X liner, step bars. Weighed last July '15, so bed contents are from memory- tool box ~30lbs, firewood ~300lbs, and a few other odds and ends due to we had just picked up our 32 and not having everything (minor things) in the trailer (sewer hose for example, was in a garbage bag in the bed). It was my wife and I in the truck, our boys weren't with us.

FA: 4020lbs
RA: 3780lbs
7800lbs

Hopefully this helps others some!

When I was shopping for a new Jayco, I knew exactly what my truck was capable of towing from previous trips to the scale.

I also knew the specs on the rig I was considering. What I was unsure of was what to expect for loaded weights on the new rig. You are correct, no dealer is going to let you do that, even though I did get them to lower the rig on my truck without pulling it.

I was able to get all the information from this forum on what to expect in a loaded weight and a pin weight, by asking others who were already doing what I wanted to do.

So maybe it does get repetitive at times but not to the guy with questions.

I say ask away and someone will be able to help. I know I worried about buying my current rigs matchup until I got confirmation from here that others were already doing it successfully.
Buying a new truck was not an option, nor was buying something that it could not safely pull.
