Question about my payload and towing a popup..

So I bought this used popup. Got a great deal, looks like it was hardly used...

After the fact I wondered if my truck could handle the weight...

WHat do you think? AM I GOOD TO GO or do I need to upgrade?

Sorry... Could not resist..

Those tires look like they are not sturdy enough for hauling.
At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

That thing looks like it's so heavy it won't be able to get out of its own way, let alone pull a popup.

If you order the 5' drop shank from Amazon.Com you should be good. Be mindful of the loss in towing/tongue weight with that drop. You might need to hit the scales prior to going out to make sure.

Ps. Don't drive that thing with that exhaust in CA.

Happy camping.
