Triple slide campers are 4500-5000 lbs dry. Expect around 6000 lbs once storage and fluids are filled.

Full fresh H2O adds 500 lbs in itself. More storage, more stuff!

Kind of interested in the answer myself. Our AF1150 fully loaded is around 5,200 pounds. The Host Mammoth triple slide seems to suggest a lighter dry weight so would it weigh about the same?

That would be a 60 gallon tank. I wish my FW tank was that big.

I doubt the OP '01 truck has a payload sticker. My '03 doesn't.
Feds didn't make it mandatory till '06 although some trucks had them before that date.
He can do what we did back then and use the trucks gawrs as a load limit.


Yep it has a stamp

Technically doable, but ALOT of weight for a 20 year old pickup.

Our 30 year old no-slide S&S says 3,050 dry. At the CAT scale it's 3,500 dry and 4,500 loaded and ready to camp. Our single slide AF 1140 was 5,300 ready to camp and put our 97 Dodge 1,100 over sticker but was under on axle and tires.

That is the reality I faced when upgrading from my 4000 lb Arctic Fox. On top of that, I tow an enclosed trailer with a 1000 lb hitch/tongue weight. I would have been at the limits of a 450/4500 which is why I upgraded to my 5500 before I bought my Host. Just carrying the Host, you are the limit of a 350/3500 but can do it. Both Dana and AAM rate their DRW axles over 10k lbs and the vehicle manufacturers downgrade it with softer suspension - Tires and rims are usually not the limit on a DRW.
