Will my TV pull 2016 XLR 420 amp?

Looking to cross over to FR and get the XLR 420amp. I was at RV outlet this weekend and saw the new XLR. Problem may be if my TV will pull it. The pin wt is 2647, dry wt 14516. TV is a 2015 Duramax 4x4 crew cab, std bed, with a tow rating of 17100. So if I don't exceed 17K total would i be OK?

2500? 3500? What's the payload listed on the sticker at your driver's door?

Check your payload sticker.
You'll likely go over that first

If it's a 2500, you won't have 3500 on that sticker.

My 2015 duramax 4x4 crew cab would be over load capacity with that pin weight.

No question, the XLR 420amp is a 3 axle 5er that requires a 1 ton to handle the loaded, ready-to-camp weights. Also, IMO, anything heavy-enough to require 3 axles is better-off being tugged-along by a dually. You want the traction/stopping-power that 6 points of contact with the pavement provide...

The problem with 3/4 ton diesels is that the heavier engine reduces payload & pricier trim upgrades reduce payload even more... For instance, my Ram 2500 w/lowly 5.7 Hemi has a payload of 3,000 - which is more than most diesel 3/4 tons on the road...

That's just wrong on so many levels. Newer 3/4 tons are rated anywhere from 16-17000 depending on configuration. There is no mention of what the OP wants to use the hauler for, heck he may not even have toys to put in it. Depending what he takes along he could load everything in the garage, thus reducing pin weight and still be under all his weights. And the SRW/DRW difference is a personal thing. I loved the difference when I went to DRW, Rodney-not so much. To the OP, you need to do a lot of homework on this, but don't let an OPINION sway you. Get the hard facts yourself, figure out exactly what you want to haul and work YOUR numbers. I personally think you would be OK, but that's an OPINION.

you can't call someone else wrong and state this. It has everything to do with numbers, not because one likes the look of dual wheel. My payload is 6500. More than double of the average 1/2 ton. Toy haulers of this size are dually material regardless of what or how you load it.
