Dry weight?

You go camping without food, fuel, water, food, bed sheets, clothes, pots, pans, kids toys, guns, ammo, etc.?

No, I don't go without these things just simply stating the declared dry weight of the camper.

Even if it's 2,500 or close to 3k lbs heavier than that wet in actuality it very well could be at the rated capacity. You can easily option a new 1/2t rated to tow 9-10klbs.

Maybe you should post your truck and camper in the BDL thread and see what he says there.

Agreed, I bet with a weeks worth of supplies its close to 9.5-10k. Stuff adds up quickly. My parents 5th wheel is supposed to weight just short of 2K less than it actually does. Thats bone dry and empty, They bought it new and hauled it across the scales. Just dont believe the dry weight unless you weigh it yourself.
