Why don't you just hitch up the fifth wheel and take it someplace then decide for yourself whether on not the combination works well together.

The GVWR for your specific truck is on the door. There are brochure weights and weights and ratings you may obtain from other sources however the GVW on the sticker is specific for your truck and is based on the options and configuration of your truck. Take it for what it's worth but it is Vin # specific to you truck.

Ask the dealer to order you a new placard indicating the 10,800 GVWR. I know what the final answer will be! "Sorry we found that your current placard is correct!" Chris

I asked my State Farm agent and he asked the regional adjuster about this "myth" (as I call it) and the adjuster responded with a laugh. Then he said "there is know way we will scoop up the mess and weigh it."

I've read a lots comments about this scare tactic and the claims but no one has yet provided any proof.

Well since most all civil cases are closed for a reason I'll just throw this link out there. Don't shoot the messenger. 99% of the time your insurance will cover it and THEN drop you. Hope your not the 1% who cheeped out on coverage.

Sad Story or just the internet...

Yes, it is a myth. Folks around here like to quote tests showing that 50% of us are overloaded. If that's true, half the accidents we have would not be covered by our insurance. Just doesn't make sense.

Besides, accident insurance is intended to cover us when we make mistakes. That is why they call it accident insurance. Being over weight is an example of a mistake that any of us might make. It might not be too wise to post online that you know about the overload situation. That might put you in the negligent category.

I have heard this myth many times. I ask them to show me where it actually happened, and to date, not one has. Can you?
post a link to a case, please. Otherwise, please stop this myth.
