RE: 2000 Fleetwood Camper - Owner's Manual?

I too am from California and relocated to the east coast. Best move ever. The camper and truck combo you have is most likely not going to be safe. As previously stated the axel is not designed to cary much weight. There are other parts to the equation to be considered. Your breaks are not designed to stop that kind of weight. Your paper thin aluminum bed will most likely have damage from the weight of the camper. Once all your possessions, pets, water, food and people are loaded I think you’ll find you’ll be significantly overloaded. BTW, yes the air bags are rated to 5k lbs but that DOES NOT INCREASE your load carrying capacity it allows you to level and stabilize your load. Also, manufacturers, contrary to the belief of some, do not build in that much extra capacity into their vehicles. It cuts into their bottom line. They maybe build in 10% and that’s it. I used to build emergency response vehicles and have had very frank and honest conversations with factory reps and have seen the consequences of building beyond spec. I know I’m going to be skewered for being the weight police, but this is my experience. Take it for what it cost.
