The feature you're probably going to have to sacrifice is the slide. When I was shopping, my limiting factor (besides money of course) was also my 1/2 ton TV, and I was told that slides really add the weight. This was a HUGE dealership with dozens upon dozens of models and not a single one with slides that I could tow. That's why we settled on the 261bhxl, which is basically the 263 without a slide. Between 4-5k lbs. dry. Last time I weighed, I was about 6500 lbs. loaded. Still 3500 lbs shy of my truck's theoretical tow rating, but I honestly wouldn't want to tow anything heavier with this truck. IIRC, there isn't a smaller model in the Cruise Lite line with slides.
