Most likely too heavy for a Class C, or a gas Class A. What MH do you have?

A google search of specifications shows that a 1/2 ton truck will probably exceed your limits. You don’t specify which model (27C or 30B) but both seem to have a hitch receiver rated for 5000lbs max tow and 350lbs tongue weight. An empty truck will weigh more than 5k.

The 27C shows a gvwr of 15,000lbs and a gcwr of 19,000. This would leave you a tow max of 4k if you’re anywhere close to being at gvwr.

The 30B has a gvwr of 18k and a gcwr of either 21k with the Ford motor or 26k with the GM vortex motor leaving between 3-6,000lbs tow capacity at max weight. A 1/2 ton truck will be close to if not exceed the 6k.
