Based on your post indicating you are looking for a max weight of 2800 pounds, you should be fine with a SRW. If however your needs/wants have changed to a larger unit you may get into DRW territory depending on how large you want to go. The way to confirm your payload ability is to look in any truck you consider glove compartment or drivers side door pillar which should have a label indicating the max payload of the truck. Then match that number up with the wet weight of the TC plus perhaps another 700 to 1000 pounds for all the gear you will likely carry.
