Towing issue with Flagstaff 832OKBS

Am looking at a 2017 Flagstaff 832OKBS and am corcerrned about towing this tt with current 2013 GMC 3/4 ton HD. Tt specs are as follows from tt sticker.
Dry weight 8108, GVWR 9708, cargo 1600, hitch weight 1108. Have Blue Ox Swaypro with 1500 pound bars, when propane and battery are added, figure will be pushing 1250 hitch weight. The hitch weight is about 220 pounds over current Flagstaff 831FKBSS. Other concern is unit has front bedroom slide with under the slide storage as only outside access for storage. Any thoughts as to pushing limits. Current tt was totaled in NC when 18 wheeler decided he needed our lane more than us.

Adding 1000 lbs should be barely noticeable to your truck. Sorry about your 831FKBSS. We have loved ours for six years now.

Your truck should handle it with no problem.
