This my first Host Truck Camper and it weights 2700 pounds.

That is almost a twin of my 1121 Lance, except my slide is on the passenger side . Nice camper.

Host specification guide says dry weight is 2,435 pounds. This camper is smallest one the Host makes. The Yukon weighs 2,995 dry weight which is biggest one they make.

You have a good heavy Camper in the Host. I always figure the weight the mfg puts out is always low, dry weight, no optional equipment installed. I always figure a thousand more for weight to be safe. Like everyone else. Glad you are looking for a 1-ton Diesel, hope its a dually, you will geta smoother ride.
Best of luck in your search,
Scott
