1500 & 5th Wheel
I am confused. My 2008 1500 Mega Cab short box, sits on a 2500 frame and even has what appears to have and extra leaf spring compared to the 1500 Quad's and Crew Cabs, but cannot pull a 5th wheel - which I think I understand why based on my research and forum comments + the vehicle specs and accept it. BUT this weekend camping, I saw 2 things that shocked me.
1- 2008 1500 SXT Quad Cab, 18 inch wheels and a short box with no modifications but "a chip ?" he added for the engine, pulling an 8400 lbs 5th wheel.
2- 2007 1500 SXT Quad Cab, 20 inch wheels and and a short box with the addition of air bags pulling a 10,200 5th wheel.
Both owners are under the same belief that with a 5th wheel you take 2000 lbs off the weight since its a 5th wheel and not being "towed" the same so the 8400 guy said he is only pullg 6400 and the 10,200 thinks only 8200 for towing weight ??
