You'll barely feel that weight :D. No, that's not even close to what your truck can tow.



Got any pics of your new toys :D?

HAHA! That's why I'm paid so much :P. A quick google search gives a figure of 17,500 for your max 5th wheel weight.

That's just over the trailer weight a 6.0L is rated for, and the DMax is rated quite a bit higher. From my manual: 2500, Fifth-Wheel Gooseneck, 1361 kg (3000 lbs) (this is the pin weight, not trailer)

You should be well within your limits in both trailer weight and pin weight.

Unfortunately, those numbers don't help him as he has a Duramax...they are rated quite a bit higher if I remember correctly. Probably find those numbers in that elusive Duramax owners supplement that seems to be hit or miss in the new trucks?
