If that's the load out on that, then he was overloaded. The 3500 DRW Cummins trucks usually have a payload around 5200-5500lbs., on average, some higher, some lower from what I've seen. Mine has a 6292lbs., payload on the sticker (Hemi truck). I wouldn't run anything that heavy.Think the article said the camper was around 6500lbs loaded.
Saw this on a auto blog today. Makes me cringe. Apparently this couple has had this RV in back of this 3500 for 25k miles until this happened. FCA is denying warranty on the frame.
Or when members here tell posters that payload doesn't matter. 6500lb axle rating...he'll be fineThis is what happens when you listed to sales people and then fail to be diligent by visiting a scale to be 100% sure of the weight...
6500 payload, but that is evenly spaced in the bed , not hanging off the tailgate. Looks like most of the weight is behind the axle considering the break point.Saw this on a auto blog today.
