Bill, according to the palomino puma specs, dry weight is 9200lbs, total loaded weight is 14,000. I have a 2006 ford f 250 4 by 4 crew cab with the 6.0 turbo diesel. total truck weight loaded with fuel should be about 7500lbs. total GCVW is 23,000. I doubt i will add 5,ooo lbs to the dry weight of the trailer, probably closer to 2,000lbs so that would put me in at a total GCVW od 19,000lbs.
This will be my first 5th wheel toy hauler trailer. I am buying a B & W companion 5th wheel hitch and a RV5 5th wheel pin box extension ( which gives 10 inhces of added length) that should help since i have a short 6.5 foot bed.
