A 12-13,000lb 5th wheel would certainly be doable with a newer GM 2500.
2022 GM 2500HD is rated at 10,500 for gas and 11,100 for diesel. Most I have looked at when I find them on the lots have a useful load of around 3,300 with the diesel.

One of the main reasons I stopped drooling over oil burners was I watched my piddly 6.0 gasser video pulling the Ike. It wasn't fast. It burned a lot of gas. But it made it.
Did great???? Pulled down to 25 mph at times with foot to the floor! Not for me, I sure donít want my a$$ hanging out even in the right lane going 25 mph.
I like setting the cruise at 60 mph and let it go!

The OP stated 3,751 max payload, so is that from the door sticker Orr brochure?

Good for you. I'll never pull the Ike.

I may never pull the Ike either, but I regularly pull in hilly country on many two lane highways and traffic doesnít like getting backed up.

This is what is so bad about comfort and pleasure of the towing experience, you said it did Great, why because it got to the top of the hill? Then going down 10 brake applications to keep the speed in control. Diesels typically have fewer than two or three.

There is a huge difference between your great, and my great!

That same page also shows 10,000G and 10,650D. It also shows 10,450 for gas and 11,100 for diesel in the standard bed. I got my specs from the official brochure on line and was for a 4x4 CC standard bed.

If you've noticed, in recent years, Ford and GM have screwed up the class 2 gvw ratings to the detriment of commercial drivers who used to be able to fall in the max 10kgvw class 2 range and have a HD pickup without the extra DOT fanfare and requirements...
To what end? Idk, to keep all the whiny RVers happy, who used to think 1900lbs payload actually is max in a CC diesel 3/4 ton?

Notice the theme, same trucks, different gvwr's. Pick one and drive it. They're all basically the same in that respect.

And now we special order the low 10k gvw trucks for work when used to be able to just go buy one off the lot, so the cops don't have a field day with our workers. (Not that they are hunting for new higher gvw 3/4tons yet around here, but they will once they realize the revenue potential...somewhere!)
