I just checked with a ford, and gm dealer. The canper pkg, nor the trailer tow has anything to do with gvw.

They give you wiring harness, mirrors, and a plug in the bed, thats all, not like the good days of fords ď. camper specials ď

What Freddy said.^^^
The key to happy and safe truck camping is having enough truck for the task.

I have a "little" non-slide, non-basement, short bed camper and when loaded for bear it can easily go over 4000 pounds wet weight.

My GVWR is 11,700 Lb and my scale weight is 12,400 Lb (without water!).
Obviously my SRW Ram 3500 is not enough truck for my Arrow-U camper.
Airbags and booster springs help but as in my case suck-up additional precious payload on an already overloaded truck.

As a rookie myself I learned the hard way that even small campers like mine get heavy quick.
So turnleft... matching the capability of the truck to the wet weight of the camper you buy is paramount to having a positive TC experience.
And thank you Freddy for the good advice.
