You'll go over on the cargo carrying capacity on your tow vehicle long before you'll get to the max tow weight.


As said get the ccc from the yellow sticker only partially shown in pic.

We pull our 24ft trailer with 2003 expedition hd tow model, and while it does a great job on our little trailer we would not feel comfortable pulling anything larger. It gets us up steep hills but not without a little struggle. If your wanting to go anywhere near the mountains I would get something larger.

Right now we have a Ford F-150 2007 Lariat. We bought our first camper and truck as a package. Now I am even wondering if we are pushing it with the F150. I swear I could scream. It is so hard to get correct information.

Now deduct let's say 900 for hitch weight another 100 for hitch and sway bars then subtract any cargo in the tow vehicle including passengers

To get an accurate hitch weight on the camper it needs to be fully loaded and taken to the scales, it could be upwards of 1000 lbs
