The gvwr of the five is ~19k pounds and I'm not concerned about that, because it'll never be that heavy; that's where I've posted that I'll have to be really careful about loading. I'm not getting some of the options like the 2nd bedroom slide, the large residential fridge, the king bed, fire place, and a couple of other things. I've been in touch with the factory and the weight with propane and batteries will be about mid 15's. I've been towing and packing for 40 years and don't tow with full water or holding tanks. I fill water as I go in and dump as I come out. I'm not extravagant with goodies, so I think I can keep the weight to lower or mid 16's. With the performance work that I've had done, the airbags at all 4 corners, and Kodiak disks with Mor-Ryde individual wheel suspension (no axle) on the five, I'm thinking it'll be alright.
