The rear axle is something like 6000 and front 5000 - together more than GVWR. So my rear axle is right at 6000, but truck is 10,500 or so. Rear axle is fine, but GVWR is not enough. And seems like they change yearly, but last I looked a 3500 had GVWR of 11000 or 11500.

Also seems like most people now are saying pin weight is 3000 or more, depending on rig. That would probably be WAY over for a 2500.
Our measured pin weight on two month trip was 3500lbs. With all of the storage up front, it adds up quickly.

Are you owners happy with the AC cooling with the 3121? Will running both units keep the inside temps down to the low 70’s when camping in 95-100F weather?

3120 is nice. alpine and avalanche have similar ones. also alliance has a nice 34 footer too.

several nice 34 footers out there that would be great for full timing.
