what is hitch rating?
tow rating?
trucks weight as you will be towing it? fuel? tools? options? stuff?
braking system on truck?
national weight without truck including tow bar and loaded for trip?

seems to me that it would work, but keep all above questions in mind to stay legally in good shape and safe. and reading many similar questions on this forum there are many additional questions to be reviewed.

safe traveling!

I'm pretty sure you have a 10,000# hitch on your coach. As long as that is the case and you do not exceed the GCWR, you will be fine. The ISB 300hp will know it's back there and the mountains/hills will slow you down a bit more, but it will do the job. I used to tow a 4800# toad with an ISB 275hp in a 39' Bounder with no problems.

I'd make sure the weight of the truck is correct. 4900# sounds the base curb weight. Depending on how its optioned, it may actually weigh 500 or 600 more.
