The one we are looking at is 14,800 and we will tow it with a 3/4 ton as well. It is rated at 16k and the Chevy isn't far off the mark.

You will be over the payload of a 2500.

What does your Driver Door Sticker say your payload is ?

I tow a 295RL and you will be disappointed with both the performance and fuel mileage of a 3/4 ton gasser. You will almost surely be over the GVWR on the rear axle too, but might barely squeeze by. I know as I towed mine with a 2010 F350 with a diesel. Your GVWR is 10,000. Your towing capacity means nothing. What means something is the cargo capacity. The pin weight of your fiver will be at least 2000 pounds, probably more. Do yourself and your wallet a favor; buy a 350/3500 diesel. You'll never regret it once you pull you Columbus. I know. I just upgraded to a DRW 3500 RAM as I would've been overweight on the rear axle with the addition of an aux fuel tank, W/D and a gen.

I tow a Columbus 320RS with an 11' Ram 2500 Cummins & love it. However if I were buying again I would buy a 3500/350 SRW for the extra bed carrying capacity. It's not the towing capacity but the carrying capacity you need to be concerned with. Good luck.

Chevy 2500 HD

We pull our 2015 Columbus 320 RS about 11,000 plus with our 2012 gas Chevy 2500 HD 4X4 no issues or strain. The tow rating on ours is well over 14,000. No complaints driving up to Tahoe on highway 50 passing the slower vehicles.

You can pull it but you probably were over your payload when you add pin weight, passengers, and camping stuff. Pull it, yes. Safe?????
