So I think we’ve decided on a truck and found a good used camper. But the current owner of the camper doesn’t know the weight. It’s a 2006 Lite Craft pop up camper.

We really like the Ram 2500 diesel trucks. Looking at 2011 model (payload 2580 according to RAM website).

Anyone know if a Lite Craft pop up camper would be too much payload for this truck? Seems, generally, like we would be fine. Or, is there a way for me to find the weight of the camper?

Here are some camper details:
Requires 8′ truck bed
Queen bed,3 way frig inside and outside showers, thereford cassette toilet, 35 gallon water tank,hot water heater, furnace

Thanks again!
