Help with the Numbers

Ok all you weight guys out there. Here are my weight slips for my Sabre 34reqs 5er and my Chevy 6.6 Duramax single rear wheel ext cab tv. Would like your thoughts on this setup. Fuel tank was full and wife was onboard.

your nrs looks good, your axle weights are all good and over weight is good. we had 190lb extra rear leaf spring suspension added on to ours, though our 5vers max weight is higher and we hope to not get near that amt.

Here's the calculations as I see them (see link):

Gross Combined Weight
20,820

Truck Weight (hitched)
10,780

Truck Weight (truck only)
7,980

Camper Weight
12,840

Pin Weight
2,800

Pin Weight Percentage
21.8 %

Everyone has differing opinions but, I'd want to make sure that you're under on the truck's GVWR, the truck's rear GAWR & combined tire load capacity (vs. your hitched weight of 5940), the truck's front GAWR (vs. your hitched weight of 4840), and finally your GCWR.

On newer trucks, you can find the GVWR and front/rear GAWR on a sticker on the doorjamb.

The tire load capacity is going to be on the side of the tire in really hard to read writing.

And the GCWR is usually in your owner's manual or manufacturer's towing guides.

The tag on the door has both front and rear axles at 6000# each.
