Hey Stymie,

Curious, what's the total weight of your Dodge + dolly? Seems like a heavy combination. Have you gotten your rig, fully loaded, weighed to see how much margin you have for towing?

Grand Caravan weighs in right at 4400. The dolly is right at 5oo. So, I am at max for the hitch. We travel very light with very little gear/cargo, but no, I have not yet weighed in the RV to see what its fighting weight might be.

That leaves me 21000 for the RV and gear. Just have to get to the scales and see where I am at when loaded.

And, sorry, its a Crew, not a Club. My bad memory.
