GCWR and TOAD Capability

I have a 2011 Berk 390QS, 340 Cummings, 2500 Allision and I am looking for the Gross Combination Weight Ratio (GCWR) which would be the maximum weight for the coach and TOAD combination.

It is not on any of the coach stickers. Sent an email to Randy at FR and he told me that my front axle is rated at 12k and my rear axle is rated at 17,500k.

I've asked him for some further clarification and am awaiting further correspondence.

Anyone??????

Have you had the front axle upgrade?

No....went back to factory for airbag and tire upgrades because they mistakenly put ceramic flooring in during the build and didn't have the appropriate bags and tires.

Then you have a 10400 lb front axle.
FA 10400
DA 17500
Toad 5000
32900
If you had the FA upgrade you still would be limited to 33000 because of the 2500 transmission.

Your hitch is rated at 5000 lbs due to the Allison 2500 transmission.

may not be info you need but the Dinghy Towing Guide can give you TOAD weights along with which cars can be flat towed.
Just google Dinghy Towing Guide. Various years will come up (2016, 2015, 2014 etc).

As everyone else has been stating, the 340's are limited to 33K due to the Allison 2500. Just an FYI, the specs also state that the 340's are limited to 5k of towing but they do have a 10K hitch on them. There is no difference between the hitches on the 340's and 360's. With that being said, if you keep the weight down on your GVWR of the coach, then essentially you could go over a little on the toad as long as you do not go over the 33k of the transmission limit.
