What is the tow rating on the Class "C" and what is the weight of the truck?
Your answer is in there somewhere, but even if it's technically doable I suspect you will HATE the performance and mileage of the 350 with that much weight on the back!

GVWR is not what the truck actually weighs. You will have to get it weighed in the normal travel configuration to see what the weight REALLY is.
Then you will have to weigh the Class C, and subtract that weight from the GCWR of the C to see what it will tow.
If the difference between the actual weight of the C and the GCWR is less than the weight of the truck, and the truck weighs less than the towing capacity of the hitch, you are good to go.
Now then, what year is the truck? Is it 4X4 or 4X2? If it is 4X2, it may not be towable. If it is 4X4, and the transfer case can be put in NEUTRAL, it can probably be towed.
Go to the REMCO website, click on "application charts", and enter the information for your truck. It will tell you what must be done to tow it.

Thank you Sir! I am looking forward to running the numbers.
The previous owner wrote wt. 8440 on the cover of the Owner's Manual that came with the motor home. It's a 24' Mallard Class-C on a 1987 Chevy van frame with a 350 motor. It also has a hitch on it so I know he towed SOMETHING with it.
I'll go and get my shortbed 95 F-150 5 speed 2 wheel drive pickup weighed and will let you know what I find out.
Thank you all for your kind assistance. That's what's so great about RV folks, they're wonderful, kind, decent people for the most part.
