Look forward to see how much payload you gain..., anything is better than 300lbs.

UPDATE:

Reweighed and got a CAT scale reading of 6220 # gross Weight...so that leaves me with 580 left on payload. Is the Jayco Whitehawk 28DSBH - Dry 5290#, Carrying Cap 2210#, Total 7500# still a viable option.

My Tow Vehicle - 2010 Ram1500 - 5.7 HEMI - 3.55 ratio - GVWR 6800# - Base Weight 5393# - Payload - 1380# - GCWR 14000# - Tow Capacity 8400# (these are all specs from Dodge)
