Hello, new Bullet 287QBS owner

Hello,
We just purchased a 2019 Bullet 287QBS. We are new to RVs and looking forward to using it, learning more about RVing, and learning more about the Bullet trailer.

Welcome!
What are you towing with?
That rv is 34' long, GVWR of 7600lbs = 988lbs hitch weight, which is 200lbs greater than the brochure states, + another 50-100lbs for the WDH.
Check the payload on the yellow/white tag on your driver's door then subtract that 988lbs & the hitch weight from that number, the remainder is the weight of everyone/everything you can put in the vehicle before being overloaded.
Enjoy & be safe!

Looks like the OP has never checked back in since his original post...

Travelin Texans, that is quite a difference from spec. I'm using a 1500 Silverado with upgraded tow & weight package. It is under the vehicle gross specs, but not by much. I'd like to take it to a scale instead of estimating. It handled fine on the 30 mile trip home, keeping it at 60-65. Probably stay at 60 in the future.
