Total ( Truck and Loaded 1165 EC Camper)  14,350lbs w/ 1/3 tank of water. 
Yes you heard right, 14,350 on a ODOT road scale  Full with water 14,765 lbs

Truck handles very well up and down in the mountains of the Ochoco Mountains of Central Oregon with the Allison in tow/haul mode.

The truck is a 2002 GMC 3500 DRW Crew Cab 4X4
6.6 Duramax with Allison Trans
Top mounted  helper springs
Remote Firestone airbags
4 Rancho 9000XL shocks
Torklift frame mounted tiedowns front and rear. (anyone want to buy a used Happi-Jac camper tie-down system?)
Superhitch Hitch/ 48" Superhitch truss extension.
4 stainless long Fast Guns
Fastgun Locks

UPDATE: 07/15/13
New BF Goodrich  235/85/16  (ten ply with the 3 ply sidewall) All Terrain KO tires all the way around (6 tires) and 2" Fred's Wheel Spacers 2" of solid US steel, not from China. This gave 4" wider stance on the rear wheels.
This made an amazing, amazing difference the way the truck handled!!!! I now love the way the truck handles the mammoth Camper!!!!

I will be installing a Hellwig rear sway-bar as the last aftermarket add on.
