No its a 100 lbs lighter and the rear is 2900 lbs heaver per the Cat Scale loaded weight with the trailer hooked up. Total trailer weight 13,260 lbs.

The goofy part is the old Cardinal was 10,600 lbs loaded weight and the Jayco tows better. I just wish the truck would get some better MPG's

I am sorry typo, one hundred is what I was getting at. I would have thought the front would be slightly more than your un-loaded weight. You are still in good shape with those weights and your truck.

Hi, I pull 09 35 RLTS 11,900lbs dry from Illinois to Rio Grande Valley for the past 2 years, plenty of power no safety issues as far as i am concerned.

Good Luck

I was worried about the same thing last spring, we purchased a 2011 37 rlqs eagle and have a 2004 ext cab 2500hd duramax which is rated at a max 5th wheel rating of 15,800 and the trailer has a max load of 15500, loaded I figure were 1000 lb under max. We dont go far but we did pull it over 400 miles on the freeway at 65 mph and had no problems, didnt feel any different than my previous 5th wheels. I dont feel I needed them but I did add a set of Timbrens which took about 15 minutes.

You are close to the limits of your truck but still within specs. I don't know of anybody that would travel that far with full tanks so you should be good.

You are going to be well over the pin weight allowed for that truck. Well over. I have a 25.5 RKS Superlite and the same truck and run very close to maximum.

The Chev literature says it has a 13,900 lb towing capacity and a 3,250 lb carrying capacity.


Sure your not looking at the tag-along towing capacity?Thats my bumper pull rating on my 03 2500HD GMC,15K is my 5thwheel/gooseneck gross.Mine is a crew cab longbed which does add a small gross increase.

nobody has yet to mention your brakes on the truck. when you are that close to max weight you have to think of how you are going to stop. any truck will haul the trailer but few can stop it!!!!
