Towing a 2004 Salem 38RBFB

I am wondering if a 2000 Chevy 3500 Gas will tow this unit, just need to tow it once! And does anyone know the tongue weight? I am assuming that is is a 2 and 5/16 ball!

Yeah the 3500 "should" be able to tow it once. (even if it is a Chevy......... )

You are still going to need a good hitch though. Those chincy 500lb max capacity hitches won't cut it.

Good luck and Welcome to the forum!

I'd have to agree with Greg. Looks like it weighs about 10,000 lbs and the TW would be about 1100 lbs. A good hitch is a must and the ball will definitely be a 2-5/16". Be sure and check the tires good. You wouldn't want a blowout on that thing.
