Would anyone be able to tell me the approximate weight of my truck? Perhaps someone has been to a scale?


I have a 2003 2500HD D/A shortbed crewcab. Totally stock, not even a toolbox.


The reason I ask, is that the wife and I are looking at a RV, but are not sure if we can get away with a 5th wheel. Might have to consider a TT in order to stay under GVWR of 9200.


Thanks

Put your stuff in your truck, fill it w/diesel and weigh it. That's the only way to know for sure. My '02 2500hd d/a shortbed cc weighs: front axle 4220, rear axle 3560, total 7780.


It has a #300 5th wheeler hitch and a #500 (when full) 50gal diesel tank in the bed that you need to subtract to get an idea of what your truck weighs.


Yea, #1420 left or #1770 w/no diesel in the 50gal bed tank. My next truck might be a 3500 SRW. Actually, I think I'm darn close to a 3500 SRW with my airbags and 265's. But, heck, what do I know?


The guy that owned the truck before me was waaay over the GVWR (in my opinion). I'm trying to keep it a little closer.

What size 5th wheel were you looking at getting? I have a 32ft Open Road (so does Dmaxallitech) it's plenty big enough and with no weight problems.

Tim1970...another thing to consider while you're shopping is that short bed. I know, people will tell you they've pulled a fiver for hundreds of years without worrying about a sliding hitch...BUT, that's usually right before they turn it a little too short and crunch the cab and the side of the fiver. It may take me 40 acres to turn this rig around but I don't have to worry about cab to rv contact.



When you get the weight of your truck, visit Ken Lenger's primo weight site over on irv2.com for a simple to understand explanation of the weights you'll be able to carry.
