Thanks for all the feedback! It's just me and 2 kids. We had 30gal tans on our last RV (Jayco 28BHS) and had more "campers" at the time. They are a little small, but for the most part, we managed. Larger tanks come attached to heavier campers
. The documentation IN the RV states more realistic "certified" weights for that unit with full LP Tanks. So, adding for the battery and gear, my truck will be close to max, but not over (so far). I figure if the hitch becomes too heavy, I'll add ballast to the rear bumber of the RV!
I had a good teacher...(Hitchhiker) and have crunched all the "real" numbers on my truck and fully loaded for a typical trip I will have about 150lbs. from true max. Of course, the salesman here in town thinks I should be towing a 8800# UVW trailer with no issues!
yeeeaaahhh...riiiiggght! Of course he based that solely on the fact I have a 5.7l Hemi!
Now all I have to do is find one within a reasonable distance from here. LazyDays in Tampa have 2 of them, but I really don't like their attitude everytime I have dealt with them. One local dealer sold the one they had already
. But, I am really looking to wait until after Christmas.
