It is the Revere 26tbqb, around 6200 lbs. Of course I pulled it home with my Dodge Durango. The Durango handled it very will. It has the 5.7L Hemi with the factory towing package. Rated to pull 8950 lbs. We have the Reese cam sway and leveling control on it. Looked at many RV's and decided that the Shasta Revere was the best for the price plus had the awesome 3 bunks stacked on top of each other. Great floorplan in my opinion.

Nice setup, I had an 07 Durango and it couldn't tow our Revere for anything, I had to trade it in for a Silverado 1500.

Nice TT, yeah the floor plans are nice, we pur 5 of us in there with room to spare.

123, what kind of setup did you have on your Durango? Did it have the 5.7L or the smaller Hemi? Only pulled mine for about 40 miles yesterday, but we live in the foothills of North Carolina so I hit several inclines and it seemed to handle in pretty well. Also, the dealership we bought from spent about 2 hours setting up the camper and the Durango go that go the vehicle and the camper stayed level after being hooked up. I think this helped alot. We traded in a 2003 Keystone Cabana Hybrid and the Shasta pulled just as well was it did believe it or not.

I had the 5.7 and it couldn't tow it at all. I had the towing package to. However, the reveres are heavy my gvw is 9300 and I have a 27' BHS,

Going to stock up the Revere this afternoon and pull around some more. I hope the Durango can handle the addtional weight. Pretty sure it will be alright. The empty pull was no problem.
