My truck was 2006? But the owner's manual pages on calculating payload were literal clones from prior years' manuals, and didn't reference the doorsill sticker at all. So you can see my confusion, and why people might argue that a 1500 can't haul more than a sack of potatoes. Because they were using old math from the manual with a pre- calculated sticker, and functionally subtracting the truck's weight twice. We don't plan on having kids. We might adopt, but it's not likely within 5 years. And if we do, it'll be a high school age kid so the growth spurt should be done...? But that's a long way away. So based on that math, if we get a V6 tow vehicle with a 3500# tow cap, the total camper weight shouldn't be above (a very rounded) 2500#. Which means dry weight no higher than 2000# ?
