I bet it does turn some heads on that big truck to boot. How tall is it?

Nice to see some real trucks built to haul a load on here! I get tired of seeing 6" lifted trucks with over sized load range D mud tires that are nothing more than mall crawler grocery getters.

Read through the posts. Great looking rigs.

Question- GM in their insight really lowered the camper rate of the trucks. My 2016 2500 HD, CCSB 4x4 is listed as 1472 lbs??

What has changed that has reduced the rating? Some of these rigs are a good 2500+ weight. I'm concerned that Chevy and my insurance company would disavow any and all responsibility for issues that would arise, mechanical / damages.

I like the idea of the TC for I can store it on the property and its the wife, lab and I.

overload springs needed

The bed of a truck with its load should be level. If not then it needs help in the form of air bags or SuperSprings with my vote going for the latter. With the rear sagging there is more movement of the bed which is hard on the shock absorbers and hard on the frame of the camper (which is why these very long campers often fail in the rear section). It also makes for a very unsafe vehicle when any kind of emergency maneuver is required for any reason.

With these extremely heavy campers I would want a 2011 or newer GM, or 2013 or newer RAM, or 2016 or newer Ford truck to get the much stronger frames that were introduced by their manufacturers.

As a side note, it took less than an hour to add a set of double leaf SuperSprings to my Duramax truck and increase the load support by 2800 pounds. With a 3700 pound camper load in the bed the truck is perfectly level and no pitching when driving down the highway as the shocks are not overworked.

Are you saying that the camper weight limit is due to the springs? Beefing the springs will help with the load capacity.

Will the axles 'weight' in to this also?

What is puzzling is the sticker in the glovebox says 1472 lbs and the specs state max 5th wheel tongue weight 3475 lbs. This is what is confusing .... why low weight on the camper and twice the weight for the tongue of the 5thwheel?

Yes, the Noobie is showing....

Thanks for the explanation / help in understanding this.
