Hi JohnSorry to disagree through the ahead poster but I don"t think you have sufficient truck because that that 5th wheel. Although you aren"t loading toys into it, don"t forget about everything else you might take with you that will include up weight, especially on a cross nation trip. Her stuff you throw in the camper certainly won"t add up come the quantity of a quad or motorcycle yet it adds increase nonetheless. I would certainly recheck her tow volume on her 3/4 ton as I don"t think it"s that high. I have a 2001 Ford F350 dually Crewcab and also my 5th wheel capacity is 15500 lbs. If that blend were invited I would feel the have to go to a newer truck with higher towing volume yet or one F450 or F550. External of tow capacity and trailer weight, also consider the the Fuzion 402 is 39 feet long and 8"6" wide. That"s a many camper to tow, particularly with a 3/4 ton truck. Have actually you considered any other Keystone models? They have actually other brands like the Cougar or Montana the have good layouts. Mine Keystone Cougar fifth wheel has a built in slide the end bike rack on the ago that will haul approximately 250 lbs.Good luck.Dale
