36qbok and a 3/4 ton truck

Who is a pulling a 36qbok with a3/4 ton truck? i currently have a 09 gmc 2500 hd cc short bed 4x4 with duramax Allison combo. I want to gets a new 36qbok but I am thinking my truck will be maxed out on payload. I don't want to get a new truck because the one I have is almost paid for and only 40k miles on it.

from what I see with a hitch weight of 1825 plus the hitch you are not going to be happy. I am sure you can pull it but I do not think you have enough truck.

Engine & Tranny are capable, unfortunately the truck's weight limitations are not enough for that camper.

The 36QBOK is basically the same trailer as my 355BHQ. It was too much for my 1 ton SRW. My payload was gone before I even put my family in the truck.

The hitch weight on mine weighed in at 2,300 pounds wet and that was *without* any propane (sigh- apparently (sheepish grin)) and that was the first trip of this season before we were able to accumulate crap as the year goes on. It was with minimal water in the gray and black tanks since I was winterized (I don't always dump between trips if I'm going again soon). And, my air compressor wasn't in the basement storage like it usually is (it was further back in the doorway). No firewood or anything.

All told- I surely believe that my pin weight number is going to so nothing but go up.

Brandon- take your family, some stuff representative of your traveling goodies, hitch and go get your truck weighed. It'll tell you what your actual payload is. As you probably read in my weighing thread, my advertised vs. actual payload was a good 1,200 pound difference when we were ready to go.

Also, look for member bjlowe, he's pulling a 36qbok with less truck than I have (man- that sounds insulting but surely isn't meant to). I just don't know if it's a 3/4-ton truck or 1-ton Megacab.

Wouldn't risk it with anything less than a 350/3500 series truck. You would most likely run out of payload before putting any passengers or gear in.

Before all this debate continues what are the towing specs of your Chevy? Payload? Towing capacity? GVWR? Etc.

Payload on that truck should be about 2450 lbs .
The math is uber simple here.
2450- 1850 = 600lbs left

1 ton dually period

Guys, I am still confused by all this payload stuff, as I have been contemplating what 5er I can safely tow. I have an f250 diesel and I am thinking based on reading here that regarding the pin weight I will need to be below 2k. Back to posted topic.

Then I am reading this....

It's mentioned he needs a 1 ton dually? See picture below from Palomino website.

Turbo, don't you have a 3/4 ton? According to this your hitch weight is 1872lbs.

I am by no means trying to point anyone or anything out, just trying to decipher through these posts to make smart decision for myself in the future and from all I have read I won't be capable of towing a 12k trailer with 2k pin weight. But it seems everyone is doing it looking at people's profile and tv's.

Just sayin, pass the corn and 3d goggles...
