We have been looking at 5th wheels for a few months and have finally came to agreement on one that should fit our needs. It is a Forest River Sierra 285 RG mid profile. The ship weight of the trailer is 7850 and a pin of 1460 according to the brochure. I have a Dodge 3/4 ton with the hemi and a 4:10 rear gear short bed. Reading all this weight stuff on the forum is a little confusing to me. This will be our first trailer so I want to make sure of the weights. My truck has a 8800 gvwr and a 17000 gcwr. I weighed my truck at a cat scale with full tank of gas and us in it. Came in at 3920 front and 3000 rear axles= 6920. Estimated hitch 150# would =7070. That should leave me 1730 for pin weight. TV and trailer would be 14920, that should leave me 2080 for gear. So do you think I have this figured right or am I missing something? I think I would be within all my weight limits. I do not to overloaded not having any experience with anything of this size and weight. Also any comments pro or con on sierra 5th wheels would be appreciated. Thank You.
