Thanks for all the input. I was asking because I thought it was a bridge too far so I appreciate the input. The 2100BH or shorter is likely to be a better fit. The dry weight of the 2100BH is 3660. Thanks again.

But the 2100BH has only 1,140 of cargo capacity. Not enough. Fresh water alone will be almost 300 pounds. Batteries...100 pounds.

2106 DS and FBS have over 3,000 pounds of cargo capacity.


Winnebago 2101DS TT & 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ Z71, 300 watts solar-parallel & MPPT, Trojan T-125s. TALL pole for flags. Prefer USFS, COE, BLM, NPS, TVA, USF&WS, state & county camps. Bicyclist! 14 year Army vet - 11B40 then 11A - (MOS 1542 & 1560)

More likely to be OK, but GVWR of the trailer is still 7000lb.

You still haven't shared the specs on the truck.

Small pickups often have minimal capability, so fair chance you are over the limits.
