I truly am puzzled with the 7K weight difference...maybe the one you are looking at isn't the one we have been looking at...

The one by me has a GVWR stamp on the kingpin (leland 7610) of 18k. It does not weigh that however. I would guess they built this unit on a frame that is rated higher than needed, I would not load it to that weight with the 15 inch tires though.

The OAL is about 36 feet, but interior is about 24 feet with the rest an open garage in the back. Also no electric beds or patio kit on this one. Add a genset and aforementioned goodies to it and easily could put another 1000 pounds on it.

They just built it with an 18,000 pin. Have to look at the GVWR of the unit. Having too large a pin is not a handicap.

We have the KZ41 with the 18,000 hitch and 18,000 GVWR. Loaded we are at 17,860.

..which makes sense..because of the toys you haul..which means the OP should spec his truck at the 18K...not the 11K..

Or at least, I would..

Doesn't hurt to have a bit too much truck either...
