    A crap load! It depends on what else you have...mine total with draw system, water tank and loaded with gear....close to 900+

    I had two extra leaf springs added to my Dodge 1500...best thing I did...now if I could only get rid of the stinking Dodge! Wish it would hurry up and die...

    I should add, mine is a 4 hole, a full length closet, 3 storage areas, full storage draws in the bed (made by Ainley)

    Thanks I just called moutain top and they said between 600-800 pounds. I am getting another truck and will eventually be getting a topper. I was just wondering if I could get away with gas but I dont think so.

    Heck yeah you can get away with gas, we have put 10 hole toppers on 1500's and F150's, might have to put an extra leaf spring in. Got a buddy that has a six hole stainless topper on a F150 with the ecoboost and gets awesome fuel economy and plenty of power.
