If you're towing it with your Coachman...maybe not. What is the hitch capacity on the Coachman? How much does the P/U truck weigh in its ready to tow weight, including all the stuff that you will put in the bed? What is the GVWR and GCWR of the Coachman and how much does the Coachman weigh in its ready to travel mode? First answer these questions and you can determine if the truck (if possible) can be towed 4-down. The 2008 Towing Guide suggests that it can be towed 4-down, but you should read the Owner's Manual to find out for sure. My guess is that a CC, 4WD PU truck will weigh close to or over 5K lbs.

Glad to have you here in the forum with us.

The Chevy 1500 is towable 4 wheel down. The only limitation may be that the base weight is around 4800 pounds, so it could be near the max towing capacity of your MH. If you have a 5000 lb hitch it may not work for you. Find out what you max towing capacity is first.

Happy Trails!!!

I had a 2008 Silverado LTZ 4X4 crew cab short bed. Actual weight full of fuel was 6200 lbs. Swapped it for 2015 Colorado 4X4 4300 lbs and a lot easier to maneuver.
