Our 2014 Classic model 30 had a literature tongue weight of 773 also. Now after all the modifications it is just under 1,200 pounds with the PP attached.

I doubt they have actually checked just the tongue weight in years at the factory. There is a Federal law that requires the total weight sticker with net payload must be created as it comes off the production line when released from production. There is no propane gas or water in the tanks.

In January 2014, those factory scales were in the north of seven stalls in the building west of the assembly plant.

Going to exercise OP privilege and ask another question about our now ordered 2016 Classic. Would someone who has a '15 or '16 Classic do us a favor and measure the width and length of the "hall" running from the couch to the bedroom entry? We have a few Persian rug runners and wonder whether one of them might work. Will be driving 400 miles to pick her up, don't want to haul some that don't fit. Thanks.

Sounds like we have similar stories. We just bought a 2016 GMC 2500 to pull our 2016 Classic. Being built November 16-19 then to Chicago where we will fetch it.

I was about to nix the power awning, but have been assured the problem is resolved. May install the power cut-of switch just to be sure.

Dealt with Sean at ProPride. Feeling very comfortable the research paid off on all of it.

Also ordered a camera for the rear of the AS so we can see who is following.

Boogieshoes, I will measure ours tomorrow for you. We left about a week ago to camp in the Smoky Mountains and on the start of day 2, our radiator exploded on our 2014, 14,000 miles Dodge Ram 2500. We are supposed to get it back tomorrow and if we do, I will gladly measure it for you! It's a pretty good ways!

"Mommas don't let your babies grow up and buy Rams!" Just joshin you Gal. I hope the next one lasts longer than 14000 miles. Mind telling me where you are staying in the Smokies? We have been going to the Smokies for about 25 years and have tried just about all of the nicer campgrounds in the area. We hope to go back for Thanksgiving. Enjoy!

It isn't about the truck model as much as it is how it is configured. There are F150s that have 2300# payloads- a 1000# more than your Platinum F150 TinCan. My 06' AS has one of the heaviest tongue weights- 860# but has an actual of 990# with full LP and camp ready- and it is a 25' model. The Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum payload limit is around 1900# on the 2015. The highest payloads are with the XLT by my observations.

Boogie...we have 3 runners in the Classic (Chinese rather than Persian). You cannot go any wider than a 24" runner. One runner goes curbside to street side in front of the recliners. The other two go lengthwise. It is NOT a straight shot back. You have to angle the runner from in front of the closet back towards the BR.

David Wantz, you will LOVE the pro pride. Sean has been such a big help to my husband who installed it himself. You can reach him anytime on his mobile phone. It is so much easier than having to take off the sway bars, etc. Duke! We do actually love the Ram. They warranted everything even though they believe something came off the road and somehow ended up in the radiator (golf ball size hole). Thankfully we have it back and everything is working out great. The Chrysler/Ram dealership in Waynesville, NC ROCK! They have been awesome! Duke, the list of our favorites so far are: Campfire Lodgings, French Broad Campground (both in Asheville and both have wonderful views), KOA in Townsend, TN on the river and about 7 miles from Cades Cove. However, we have just found a hidden gem and we LOVE. It's Cardinal Ridge in Franklin, NC. 23 acres with only 6 campsites. Owners are so nice and rode us all around on 4-wheeler yesterday afternoon. They rescue fawns and bottle feed them until they are able to go out on their own. Mama Gertie's in Swannanoa was really nice too - especially if you get up real high - the views are amazing!

Dittoes on loving the ProPride setup. Love the jacks instead of over center bar tensioners and the fact that the stinger is all I have to lift. Finally gave away the old Husky brand setup to a neighbors friend who needed a WD hitch for an SOB. He's happy, and I have less clutter in my garage. Hated installing the heavy, greasy bars up into the hitch on the truck. Now it's plug in, latch and go in a few minutes.

The steps on the 2016 Classic seem to be a little different. My dealer advised not putting a cover on the steps because when you fold them up they might bend. Has anyone found a suitable cover for the steps? Also upon looking at the steps they are not particularly attractive. Minor point actually.

The Classic steps cannot have a cover on them like the black RV steps because of the way they fold.
The "skateboard tape" on them seems to be a good non-slip surface.

M.hony is right. They have an excellent non skid surface on them and I don't believe you can put anything on them.
