Averaged 11.5 pulling about 13, 000 lbs. Thought that was good.

It all depends on what it's made out of... real cabinets...type of flooring...ceiling construction...etc. The total weight isn't as much of a concern as the pin weight.

10, 900 dry weight, max gvw 13, 800. I am considering a air ride pin box to smooth out the ride.
