The sticker on our 97 w/factory Reese hitch (which appears to be a full on class III hitch) says 4000lbs.

Likely pretty conservatively rated looking at any coach spec. you'd care to look at, but it is what it is. That's the rating...

I would guess 5000#, but should have a tag on it somewhere. My 96 HR gas has a 5000# hitch! Crawl around back there and see what is stamped on the hitch, or look at the tag by the drivers seat on the wall. Rail!

I got 5,400 from the manual on the Jeep but it had so many different weights it was confusing so I will check again and get back .
Thanks Don Lehrman

A set of CAT scales at nearly any expressway truck stop can clear up any confusion, or guessing for that matter, when it comes to weight. Cheap, quick, and easy. You'll likely want to do it again with whatever MH you end up with.

Regarding the HR hitch weight rating, as mentioned, I think anyone that has a look will agree it's conservatively rated. I wouldn't be too concerned pulling a Wrangler 4 down with it. Especially if the HR is an Endeavor. They're generally very light compared to other HR's, leaving them with plenty of capacity for something like this.

The 5400# probably comes as the GVWR. That would be fully loaded with as much as it will carry. Empty weight is a lot less.
