So yesterday I swung by my work where we have a certified truck scale and got my weights. Idk what the camper by itself would of weighed but at 36' it's supposed to weigh a hair under 10k dry. We had roughly half a tank of water and a few items loaded leftover from the weekend so not as full as when we started the trip. With my 15.5 Denali crew cab short bed almost full of fuel I came in at 18960#. Is your pickup level? Cuz even when my rig is empty I need 75psi to bring the pickup back to exactly where it was without the camper on. Now it doesn't ride the smoothest there so I usually run it at about 60psi. Just doing some thinking!

Mine has the 3" blocks in the back so when not loaded down it sits higher in the back. It is a 3500 with overload springs in the back too so it doesn't want to squat a whole lot.

I was pleased with how well the add-a-leaf kept things up from squatting and stable

Makes sense being the 3500. Mine is just a 2500 and it squats considerably more than my dad's 16 3500.

Here is a picture(bad one) of our very first time camping. It was a blast. Little hard backing this thing up, but I got it.

Nice, I just got mine out on the water for the first time on Tuesday. Rebuilt the motor and still trying to get it dialed. Trying out different props now....

Rock Crawling at Moonrocks for Memorial Day. Probably the biggest weekend of the year out there. After being sick of borrowing a 15' car trailer from Hot August Nights I decided to pick up a car trailer of my own a couple months ago, its a 2017 18' PJ C5. Only my 3rd time using it so far, but it tows real nice!

Edit: This was before I moved it back a little bit on the trailer and used my chains and binders to strap it down.

It's amazing what adjusting it a few inches can do.

Duramax is down due to a leak in the fuel line so the '87 V30 stepped up to the task.
