The one thing that happened, was that he got very few answers to his question of.....My question is has anyone pulled a full size pickup with a 35 ft gas motor home I have a 1997 Fleetwood Bounder 34V with a Ford 460 engine and my tow limit is 3500 lbs my truck is 4900 lbs.?.....
What he did get was a lot of everything else, including legal counsel and one even said that he had answered his own question.

The OP also never clarified where his stated "tow limit of 3500 lbs" came from? Is that simply the difference between his GVWR and GCWR? If so, he could easily tow more if his MH weighs in at less that the full GVWR, as long as his hitch setup is up to the task, particularly 4-down.

Yes the OPer can tow more than his towing limit if he is under the GCWR and if the hitch is rated for 5000 lbs
