Thanks for the reply Michael. I used the truck to pick the camper up and bring it home and it towed it just fine. I live in western PA and we got some hills. But the truck did great I thought. The only time the truck slowed down was when I went up a pretty steep hill. this hill is noturiously known for how steep it is. The truck pulled that camper at 2700 rpms at 35mph. The speed limit is 40mph. I also have the Weight Distribution hitch and Sway Bar with Huskey brake controller. I am buying 2500-3500 tow mirrors though! Thats the only thing this truck had issues with! I couldnt see anything behind me!!
The sticker on the trailer says dry weight 4567lbs. Weight with full water is 367lbs more. This is a brand new 2012 Coachmen Catalina Santara. They are sure making them alot lighter than they use to.
I will not fill my tanks before I leave. I will wait till I get to the campgrounds for water. so Im figureing Ill be ok there. Im hoping Im not gonna put any more than 800 or 1200lbs of cargo. I just cant see me putting anymore than that. So when I go through West Virginia to get to Myrtle beach running 2500 rpms through those mountains will I be ok???? Thanks!!!
