Requesting Advice on diesel MH towing a Class B MH OR "Class B+" towing up to 10,000

For reasons too lengthy to go into here, I want to have either a diesel MH towing a minimal Class B MH OR a diesel "Class B+" MH on a GM diesel truck chassis pulling a travel trailer with a total weight up to 10,000 pounds, and I want to be able to easily drive this combination on i70 in western Colorado. The first combination I think I can find ready-made; the second would seem to require a custom MH on a GM diesel truck chassis. I don't have much experience with towing, although I have towed boats and cargo trailers. I have successfully driven a 29' Class C motorhome for over 130,000 miles. Any suggestions? Advice? Thank you!

We have regularly seen a 45ft tag axle mh roll through with a sprinter class b in tow. If I had to guess, I would say that since a 45 footer is to big for most state parks and National Forest camp grounds, they used the B for that purpose. They would park the 45 footer at the RV park right off the freeway and take off in the B for a few days at a time. They were even painted to match.

So, would the Sprinter be considered a second home? You can have your 45' DP home and a Sprinter lake house and have them anywhere you want. Only in America, what a great country :-)
