So max tire in the back is 2900kg. U running 10ply tires atleast?

My old ford has better capacity! Could u have shifted your trailer weight more to the back? Too much forward weight

I do the same as u! Fully loade with full tanks of diesel an i roll over the scale to see if im legal! Most of the time i dont have to shift my weight around but had to once

Even with just the camper on I'm over weight. No way around it to be safe it's time to step up to a dually. I prefer the look of the SRW but with what I carry/tow I don't think I have much of a choice

and yes the tires I have on are 10 ply E rated

If you want to go ocean fishing and quading on the west coast of Vancouver island 3 guys and minimal gear is not going to cut it

is what is on my door sticker '04 3500 srw. Only real difference between the 3500 and 2500 is the over load springs and the door sticker... everything else is the same mechanical wise.

Gross combined is not legislated here in BC. Only restriction on trailer weight is based on the horsepower output of your engine.

Although, I thought I read somewhere once that 30% of the trailer weight must be on the traction tires. Haven't found that in righting though...
