I went back to '08 and the heaviest one I saw empty was 5700. Generally they run around 5500-5600. Gross weight rating is 7300 max.

I've towed a Tahoe and an Avalanche behind similar motorhomes. The Avalanche had a motorcycle in the bed.

We flat towed a heavier Chevy Silverado 2500HD Diesel across the country several times behind our Allegro Bus - no problem hardly knew it was there.

Why?

The coach has a 15K towing capacity.

It will always perform a bit better with a lighter tow, but you have plenty of power and towing capabilities to tow just about anything you want.

I just pulled a loaded pickup, 7900 lb, to Alaska for the 9th time. Going home with all the freezers full of fish I expect the truck to go about 8600-8800 lb on the way home. Our round trips run about 11,000 miles. Our Bus has the 450.
