I would like advice on pulling a trailer with gross weight of 11,060 with a 2001 31 ft class C with a V10 engine?
Since writing this I realized the truck weight was included in this weight.. Trailer is only 7000 lbs.
Thank you all for your input. Made me look into this more!

Sounds like a lot of wt to be pulling with a motor home.but you haven't said the tow rating of the motor home either.

Check the specs on your unit, but most Class C's are only rated for somewhere between 5000lbs and 7500lbs for their towing capacity.

Your way, way over the tow rating.
Strongly advise against it.

Your liable to end up on youtube here, I doubt your hitch is rated that high, also the distance from rear axle to hitch is a bit long.

Probably close, if not over the max length allowed too.

This thread is a joke, right? That 11,060 is above even what 99% of the diesel pushers can tow.

Probably not lol. Somewhere, somebody is towing that much weight with a C. With some of the stuff I see asked on these RV boards nothing is a surprise lol.

Get a super C. You can get one with towing capacities of 10K, 20K, even 40K.
