Georgie Boy Towing

I have a 2000 Georgie Boy Landau 3601 Diesel Pusher. My question is does anyone know what the towing capacity is on my motorhome?

If the manufacturer didn’t give any number. Two ways:

1. If it comes with a hitch receiver, you can guesstimate the capacity. Most would have a class iii 5000/500 lbs limit.

2. Find out the GCWR and GVWR of your vehicle. Then head out to the CAT scale to find out how much payload is left, then find the appropriate hitch. Both GCWR and payload limit your towing capacity, take the lowest one.

Many class A are heavy and that limits their tongue capacity. But I’ve seen some class A tow 40’ cargo trailer.

You might be able to see weight limits on a label or maybe stamped into the hitch. I went down a rabbit hole when I tried to use google.

From what I remember starting in 2008 most class A gas motorhomes were rated to tow 5,000lbs with 500lbs tongue weight.

Most 2008 and newer diesel pushers were at 10,000lbs towing with 1,000lb tongue weight.

This is an semi educated guess but in 2000 I would guess a diesel pusher to be 5,000lbs and 500lbs tongue weight.

I say this because motorhome frames have improved between 2000 and 2008 to be able to tow more.

I got into RV's in 2008 and was looking at new models.

Thanks for the help. I'm still going through the manuals to see if I can find something.
