i am looking for an owners manual for a 1979 sportsman dodge chassis motorhome,,, I think it’s either 21 or 22 feet,, it is being gifted to me, so I can get out of a horrible living situation I’m in,,, but it needs tires, a friend of mine said he can go get it (2and a half hours from me) and bring it on his trailer,,, but his trailer has a 10,000 lbs capacity limit,, so I’m trying to find out the weight and I can’t find it anywhere online,, plus I’ll need the manual,, so I can figure out how to use stuff on it,,,
I’m so nervous and a bit scared to just take off and don’t know where I’m going,, but I have too,,, another set back,, I guess they r R16.5 tires and I’ve been told they r hard to find bc of safety,, (that’s why I’m having it towed, it runs tags have been paid for me, it even passed smog, 1st time) but smaller tires and rims run about 1,190, eeekkk, so hes towing it here to see if I can find same size, little by little, ty susan scholtes

I can’t help you with the weight but it might be close. You may also have a height problem with that motorhome on a trailer.
My 40 foot motorhome weighs about 32,000 pounds

If you can't trailer it can you disconnect the drive shaft and tow the MH?

My 2018 Winnebago 25' long on A Ford diesel Transit chassis gross max. Weight is 10,350. I'd think a shorter 40 year old RV would be less.....
