I looked up in the specs and the Silverback 33RL has a shipping weight of 10415 lbs...with propane, battery, dealer adds, etc, you should still be under 11000 lbs. Sorry for any confusion I may have added.

No, you are on the right track the yellow sticker after the upgrades states 11,015. Not sure why Forest Rivers website doesnt note this.

I was told that CC weights every trailer as the come off the line, just as they ship it to the dealer. My trailer was at 10610 lb and its a 2014, but it's the early 2014 so it looks like a 2013.

The posted weight on the web site has to be the standard trailer, but after you ad the options the weight goes up LOL.
You are going to love the 33RL, I think for the money there is not a better trailer than the Silverback.

Thanks jimmac28, makes since. There was an early 2014 on the floor we consider, it had the half shower and did not have the LIC leveling jacks and was at 10,600 lbs.

Congrats! I have a 2013 29RE Silverback pulled by an 07 Silverado 6.6 with the 6-speed trans. It has no problem whatsoever and I can't believe you would have any difficulty. Enjoy!

I hope you have fun with your new camper, we have nothing but good things to say about our C/C, we looked at a 33RL Silverback but it was a little long for us but we liked the floorplan. I like the island and was thinking about ordering a island for the 30RL but it would not work out but we got some good ideas from looking at the 33RL. As for the truck thats up to you, pull the camper some and find out if you feel good with your truck pulling the camper. Its up to you, I have seen half ton pickups pulling really big fifthwheels, it all comes down to how you feel. I had a 08 Silverado diesel and it would not pull a bumper pull camper good, it was 34ft, I had air bags on truck and truck was level and all but truck would not stay in cruise, I had to keep my right foot on the pedal all the time, with that being said just find out what you are comfortable with and go with that

Make sure your truck has an external tranny cooler. You may want to consider airbags also the 33rl is fairly heavy. I don't have them yet but they are on my list.
