I thought I would put this out there for folks who are interested.
My 2015 GMC Duramax 4x4 weighs 7,013lbs empty (according to GMC - not weighed)
With my 2015 Fiberglass Hawk Self Contained plus gear water and food the total weight is 9,700.
GVWR is 10,000.
The empty weight minus total weight gives us 2707. Not all of that is in the camper. I have a replacement front bumper and winch as well and a fair amount of gear in the cab (plus passengers). I would put the camper at ~2,300 (wet weight).
I do carry smithbuilt compressor, high lift handle-all, 14,000GVWR Pull-Pal and quite a bit tools. I travel my myself a lot and needs to be able to self recover. I am probably a bit heavier than most people.
Truck handles fine - especially after adding a Hellwig front swaybar to replace the stock unit.
