first, you don't mention any info on your TB. is it the I-6 or the v-8? is it 4x4 or 4x2? what rear end ratio does it have? does it have the factory tow package?
the hitch weight is that heavy because the queen bed and the sofa are up front. and it'll probably weigh close to 4800lbs on the dealer's lot.
and many of us carry at least a 1/2 tank of fresh water, to be able to use the toilet or faucets, in route. i carry a full tank because i have enough tow capacity and i prefer my home water to what may be available at the campground.
