What are you towing? The more information you provide the better. Most information can be found on the stickers in the drivers side door jam. Then, also what is the rear end ratio? (usually that can be found on a sticker inside the glove box.

Are the specs you provided with the weights of the towed vehicle loaded with full tanks and extra stuff inside?

Looks good.

Gross vehicle weight rating is 22, 000, Gross combined is 26,000. Your numbers are pretty close to what I had with my 08.

You really should look at your axle weights vs the axle ratings. I was below GVWR on my class A but my rear axle was overloaded. The limiting factor for my rear axle was the brakes, then the shocks.

His rear axle has a loaded weight of 14,580 and it is spec'd at either 15,000 or 19,000 and front is 7,500 IIRC so he's good on both.

Grumpy, I should have included the word "also" in my comments. It's easy to focus on the gross weights and ignore the axle ratings. I was trying to make a point for the readers that they need to look at individual axle ratings also.
