The dry weight of the 396V is 12351lbs. The 100 gallon water tank full would be around 900lbs. The I figured another 2000lbs for misc junk and food. This brings the total weight 15,251 which is under the manufacturer chart of 15,900
We like the toy hauler for the garage area and fenced in party deck for our dog.
When you are loaded for your first outing, drop by a truck stop and scale out. That will take all the guessing out of it. Don't forget to fuel up and include all passengers and your dog.
The GCVWR of your SD is 23,500# .... the same as my 250. What is your payload capacity? It is specific to your truck and its options and found on inside the driver's side door.
Many don't care about TV ratings and trailer as long as the combination moves down the road .... it's nice to see you do. I would rather not take that chance. There are too many clueless drivers on the road. If you are involved in an accident and overloaded, YOU will be at fault regardless of the circumstance. I choose not to test my $million umbrella .... too much to lose!
