Off topic but I like your lights, especially the big green eyes on the windshield cover

Very happy 2011 390 RB-40 owner. The 340 Cumins is fine you'll slow down in the mountains but it is no problem. The 340 Cumins has 5,000 lbs tow limit due to the Allison 2500 transmission. The 360 Cumins has an Allison 3000 transmission and tow capacity is 10,000. I don't know if they changed since mine was built or they are still the same transmission.

Yes, the hitch is rated at 5,000 lb, but that does not necessarily mean that you can tow a 5,000 lb toad. The Allison 2500MH tranny limits the overall weight to 33,000 lb. Without going into the many previous post about weight, I would suggest that your selling dealer weigh the RV for you at a CAT scale. You will then know how much you can carry. I would never again do such a large investment again, without doing that step IMO!
