BayStar payload capacity

My 2020 Baystar Sport 3112 has a sticker GVRW of 20500 LBS
Just weighed fromt and rear axels and found total weight = 19500 Lbs
Coach has a towing rating of 5000 lbs
My question is will I be overweight if I'm flat towing a 5000lb vehicle
behind the coach?
Please advise

Flat towing adds very little weight to coach total weight

What is does is add to GCVWR...combined coach/toad weight

And what is the rating of your tow bar? Some are only rated at 3500 pounds. It should be on the sticker on your rig somewhere.

BayStar payload capacity

You coach should also have Gcvwr rating (gross combined weight rating) thatís the number that will answer the question. I would suspect itís in range if the actual tow rating is 5000lbs and not just it has a 5000lb hitch

The 20500lb chassis should have a GCVWR of 26,000lbs so you should be fine.
