Sabre 36qbok Pin Weight, Tow Vehicle?

For those of you with the 36QBOK, what are you towing it with? The pin weight show I can tow it with my F250, I'll be a little over payload but under my RAWR. The GVWR is 14,600 so it's pretty heavy when loaded, still within my Tow Rating. I'm trying to confirm a pin weight and camping weight.

No idea on actual weights but I do know that as badly as I wanted to go with a 2500, I knew there was no way to stay within payload the way we travel. I have a 2015 Ram 3500 SRW CC with a 6.4l gas motor and 4.10 gears. If I went with the 2500 I would have had make the wife and kids walk to stay legal!!!!

I dont have any actual weights to give you. We only have towed our 36 almost empty other than once, about 10 miles away. We have a seasonal site so thats why we could tow this way.
My first truck i pulled it with was a chevy duramax 4x4 and it was right at the payload. It pulled fine but i was never real comfortable being borderline. I now have a GMC Denali 3500 duramax 4x4. I haven't towed the camper yet, but we probably will take it out more since we have a truck that will handle it better.
Heres old and new setup.

For weights on the 36bok, ependydad should be along shortly. He has one and has actual scaled weights. He tows with a dodge dually. I personally would not tow it with a 250. My sabre 34REQS is lighter than the QBOK and I'm near capacity on my 3500 SRW.

Really? How?
My 2015 3500 CUMMINS says 4K payload.
Sabre specs say around 1800. ( lies
I know but can't be that far off)

1 ton for sure. I would have liked dually, but the wife put her foot down.

I know Pbalmer uses an f250, l believe Laydback and Qccowboy use f350's. I know Speedcat used to have a chevy 2500 with the 8.1 gas motor.....i believe he upgraded though. Yep, Eppendydad uses a ram 3500. I believe Pirates55 uses a single wheel f350.

That's about all the regulars on here that have been on here for a while that i can recall with a sabre 36qbok

I used this before my ram.

Pulled amazing. Tons of power.
Used tons of fuel too.

Is that what your door jam sticker shows? That seems awfully high for a srw.
Cause my dually door jam sticker shows my payload at 4721 pounds with a 13,025 gvwr. Now that is with factory spray in bedliner, step bars and other frivolous crap subtracted already.
