New 5th wheel

We are considering a trade up to a 5th wheel and were wondering what everyone thinks of this unit. The one we have picked out is the Heartland Bighorn (model #3685RL). Any input or information would be greatly appreciated. I will be pulling the coach with a Chevy Silverado 2500HD with the allison transmission.

The Bighorn 5ers are really nice units. But typically the pin (hitch) weight is too heavy for a 3/4 ton truck.

Check the pin weight, add the weight of stuff added to the bedroom and storage area) vs the GVW of the wet truck with fuel, people, hitch, other camping stuff.

Typically 3/4 ton trucks run out of GVW before other limits.
