We are looking seriously at a tripple slide and wondering about the weight. The campers are weighing in at 4000lbs and wondering how others have done with that load. We have 2001 dodge 3500 dually. Wondering about the swaying back and forth also.

My single slide, basement 12' model scaled 4200 lb winterized. Manufacturer listed it at 3800 lb.
I think you are very optimistic.
Sway will depend mostly on your truck. I have none with my F350 dually.

I am going by the stamp on the rig itself not what anyone is telling me.

Lance listed the weight of my camper in the sales brochure at 2826 lbs.

Actual weight with AC, microwave, electric jacks, generator, some fresh water, battery and some LP, 3260 pounds. An additional 434 pounds over the advertised dry weight..

Loaded, full fresh water tank, both LP tanks full, fully loaded for camping, clothes, food, dishes, pans, linens, bedding and other miscellaneous stuff takes the weight up to 3960 pounds. [emoticon]

So fully loaded my camper weighs 1136 pounds more than its advertised dry weight with no options.

Bill, what is the rated slide-in camper payload for your truck. My 2015 GMC dually is rated for a 4,913 lb. camper and I installed a swaybar and Timbrens before loading our AF990. I don’t think I would enjoy the camper without the swaybar.

A dry 4000 pound TC will easily approach 5000 wet and loaded.

I doubt the OP '01 truck has a payload sticker. My '03 doesn't.
Feds didn't make it mandatory till '06 although some trucks had them before that date.
He can do what we did back then and use the trucks gawrs as a load limit.
