Toad question

I know there are variables, however, can anyone be so kind as to give me an estimate of the Toad vehicle weight I could be looking at for a 2020 Sunseeker 2440DS?
Dry Sunseeker.

Thank you for your help.

On the forest river website it says the GVWR is 14500 and the GCWR is 22000 so your towing capacity is probably around 7500lbs. Hope that helps.

Bet it is a 5,000 lb hitch though.

Thank you so much for your quick reply. I thought it was in that area. I didn't have the two numbers readily available at the moment. I guess I should have maybe gone to the site, but your help is appreciated.

Now let's hear from some of those no TOAD braking system guys with a GVWR of 14,500 and a GCVW of 22,000 or more than 1/3 of the total weight on the towbar.
