Dry is actually 9431 and loaded is 13,465. I will have a 1700 lb RZR in the garage (the garage has a max capacity of 2K)
and no more than 500 lbs crap in the rest of the unit at any given time. I always tow dry (no water in tanks in trailer). To me it seems dumb to tow water at 8 lbs per gallon unless diesel fuel becomes free sometime in the near future. LOL
I just can't see the toy hauler ever going over 12K.
And after it's all said and done, if a 3500 is needed, I am a service director for 2 different Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram dealerships and can trade for a 3500 pretty easily. Only reason a 2500 is in the driveway now is the ability to drive through car washes and my lube techs not raising hell anytime I need my tires rotated. LOL
