From what I could figure out I need more weight in the camper and take the load out of the back of the truck. And when it really comes down to it I am not gonna be able to get a new truck so I gotta make it work. I really don't think everything is to heavy just gotta figure out the right combo.
OK, loaded WITH the camper attached the truck was 7000 and the camper's axles were 6800. The trailer can weigh 7661 max (your figure).
If you have a 10% weight on tongue, your camper weighs 6800 plus 756 tongue weight = 7556 pounds; and your truck weighs 6244 without the camper hooked up. This means you have only room on the camper for another 100 pounds.
If you have a more normal 13% tongue weight, your camper weighs 7816 pounds (already overloaded) and your truck is carrying a tongue load of 1016 also overloaded. (max tongue load on your truck is 940 pounds). and the unhitched weight of the truck is 5984.
In all cases your truck is overloaded by 478 pounds.
This why it is critical to get 2 weighs (one with camper and one without) At A MINIMUM.
You can tell your balance with 2 and distribution with 3 weighs.
Truck alone; truck with camper and no WD; and truck with camper AND WD.
