What would be the most weight that I can pull? I read on the door that it says 8800 gvwr, so does that mean 8800lbs is the most that i can pull? Just want to know that way i have some idea of what size I'm able to get. I also have no other upgrades as far as suspension, so would i need to upgrade anything, or would stock do ok? thanks for any input, just want to know as much as i can before i go out looking.
look at the TrailerSaver air ride hitch for your 5th wheel they cost a little more then most but they are great, i have one and the ride is soooo much better, and i have a 1/2 ton with a 30' 5er
