For those that are intent on the stickered rating , maybe you can explain this ? My 2018 GMC has a door sticker payload of 19?? Lbs but in the glovebox there is a cargo capacity sticker that is approx 300 lbs higher. For the record i only go by tire ratings. Weighed the truck and its 3300 on the rear 4890 on the front. Thats what i will base my loading from.

What are the weights on that 40'

Last I weighed the 36CKTS it was around 13,000.
Never weighed the "Little Creeker".

The door sticker factors in the options and trim you have. What you have in the glove box is likely the generic number from the brochure. Base model with no options.

ford f350 6.7 srw trucks towing 38ft fifth wheels
 
If you're 5er is 16200, 20% or more pin weight and you're overloaded and you still have to add the hitch and everything in the truck. You don't want a dually or you're just going to buy an SRW no matter what any body says. My dually is my daily driver but I'm towing 18k and still have payload left over for safety.

Hello not to hi-jack this thread but I see in the picture of your set up a mini trailer of some sort on the back of your fifth wheel. May I ask what is it? Was this home made or a purchase?

Thanks!

It's a Swivel Wheel trailer, by Fastmaster. It's actually for sale now, as I've upgraded to a bigger one. Great for grills, bikes, or other outdoor gear. The rigid mount to the fifth wheel allows easy backing up.
