Open range?

I am looking on line for some information. I saw this weekend while camping, a new Open Range 5th wheel. I didnt get the model number but it was being pulled by a later model 1500 ram qcsb. The truck was older than my 07 so I know for sure it has the lighter towing capacity. I looked on line at open ranges website and cannot find any of there models that is remotely close to being pulled by a half ton. The lightest pin weight it around 2100lbs. I would have loved to see this camper hooked up to the pickup just to see how it sat. Even with airbags, I cannot believe it would pull it. I did a lot of research before getting my 5th wheel for my half ton, I am within my limits, and my dry tonge weight is right around 1100lbs. I have seen some crazy things camping but WOW

Well theres no doubt about that lol, I have been through there website several times, looked at all the models, they have a "lite" series but the "lite" series doesnt look anything like the one I saw. It had 3 slides and was def. longer than my 29ft coachman. I cant find one that wouldnt make the front wheels come off the ground of any half ton,....
