Honestly not the weight police. We have a Puma by Palamino 295kbh that may total (or may take the money and trade - dealer already gave me a price for my 5er as is). -We have a Chevy 2500hd duramax, cc 4x4 that weighs about 7350 with me and junk in it (with my 35"tires, subtract about 140lb. When I put stock ones on, which I do when pulling 5er over the summer.) And I have the 9200 gvrw, so I have about 1850lb of payload.
-The brochure has the 36qbok with a 1825lb pin weight, and amazingly the 32bhok has a 1872lb pin weight. Yes I know the loaded weight, pass and other weights add to it. Usually the dw tows the boat ahead of me and the kids and some other junk goes with her.
We are looking at getting a new 3500hd for the dw- just cant find what we want or make up our minds on dually or single rear wheel.
-just curious as to what others tow thiers with.

Ps. My dealer who is a friend says that we can test pull their new platinum one they just got in if I want.

Oh and we are also looking at the Crusader 360bhs, almost the same floor plan and specs as the sabre 36qbok, and also the Crusaders 335bhs- its only about 37-38' and a 1657 pin weight.

I pull mine with and F350 dually and glad I do. Won't get into weight/payload conversation as everyone has an opinion. I have seen a couple of SRW 350/3500 series trucks pulling them and even saw an F250 pulling one with a lift on both the camper and trailer (not for me though).

I pull mine with a 2012 Ram 3500 DRW crew cab with 4.10 gears and a long bed.

Actually scaled weight for the camper was 13,800 pounds total with a pin weight of 2,300 pounds. However, that was my first trip of the season and I had empty water tanks, empty water heater, empty propane, no groceries and were not carrying our normal 6 gallons of drinking water and a case of drinking water. Estimating a normal load for us- I'm expecting 14,000-14,250 pounds and likely 2,250 - 2,500 pounds of pin weight. I usually run with 1/3-1/2 tank of fresh water, water heater full and 1 or 2 propane tanks full. We also try to shop for groceries before leaving as well as carrying the drinking water that I described.

We're leaving for a couple of week trip soon and I'm going to hit a scale again on our way out.

You can see my full numbers posted on my blog:

We have a 2013 Sabre 35-QSIK-6 Platinum, which is almost 40ft, actually a little over when you have the bike rack down. I pull it with a GMC Denali HD -Dually - with no trouble what so ever. We looked at the 36-QBOK before buying ours a couple of months ago. Tom Raper actually had them sitting side by side and for the room inside we chose the QSIK. Good luck on deciding!

My wife loves the 35qsik. But if I remember correctly, the pin weight is higher then the 36qbok.
- I just looked at a montana high country on my way home from work, it was nice but I like sabre and primetime better I think.
I dont know what to do, just waiting on insurance right now, may just stick with a Puma.

Thanks ependydad! Wow you do have a high front axle weight. I would like to weigh my axles separately, but all the scales that are close to where we go and that ive used are feed scales and are a simple platform scale, that holds truck and trailer all together. So its individual component weights for me, untill I find q cat scale somewhere.

I've been pulling the 25'er for 7 years so I'm comfortable pulling loads
