|Re: Towing Capacity by Alex|
|1 a 3500 pound, or class II, hitch has a 1 /2 inch reciever. A class III hitch that is rated for 5,000 has a 2 inch reciever. There can easily be a difference in the manual and what may have been put on by the dealer or prior owner. Typically the capacity of the weight is on the hitch. The receiver size is the tell tale sign between 3,500 and 5,000 # capacities.
2 Towing capacity is one of the hardest things to get a handle on in RVing. Generally the towing capacity is governed by the difference in gross vehicle weight and dry weight of the RV. In other words how much you are carrying adds or subtracts from the towing capacity. You should find a sticker in one of the closets or on one of the doors.
3. You should take the RV to a truck scale and have it weighed loaded as you normally travel. The difference between the GVW and the real weight is your towing capacity. 4,200 # is easily within the capacity of a 2 inch hitch, but not necessarily within the recommended capacity of the chasis.
If you do an internet search on GVW towing capacity of you RV, or something similar you should find lots of information.
