Another good point.

Remember, as long as you are not grossly overloaded, even exceeding the GVW of your TV "occasionally" should not do much more than hurt your gas mileage. In your case that is not the issue. The truck should pull the camper you selected just fine.

Most folks just use their camper a week or two a year anyway. Why pay a full time penalty of "too much truck" for commuting for a little sluggishness to and from the campground.

You will also be IN the camper more than you will be towing it. As long as you are not in the "unsafe" territory (over long for your TV wheelbase or over your max tow rating) I would say go for it.

If you were going to full time it or anticipate a larger camper in the future the advice would be different.
