I definitely have a 5k hitch but custom chassis folks said it would be no problem to out a 7500lb hitch on because all the hardware on my coach brackets bts etc... Are the 10k variety.
We had coach weighed fully loaded and came to 25500 roughly. Jeep came in at 4600.
My new f150supercrew 6.5 bed weighs 4899 with full tank of gas.
My math tells me I have 7500lb to play with for towing. And if my truck weighs 5500 with all my gear I'm still well within the 33k gcwr.
I'm thinking this correctly aren't I? Freightliner agrees, just making sure.
