2011 Dodge 3500
 
Hi Im looking into getting a 3500 4x4 c/c long box dually cummins.What i havent got a straight answer on is can i carry a 4500 Lb camper and tow a 3000Lb cargo trailer and still be legal.Would adding the 19.5 wheels that come on the 4500 be worth getting and swapping.thanks......Paul

What do you mean by legal? As in state or federal laws for towing, or as in keeping within warranty guidlines?

Ops what i meant to say was legal meaning not overloaded exceding the GCWR.Warranty would cover to what they say is the GCWR,i dont know if the amount i wish to carry/tow fits in the limits.....Paul

Looks like you are under the max rating based on what GT posted. Of course, you need to add the weight of fuel + cargo in the truck (people, misc. items) to those numbers.

Tongue weight is 225 Lb
