Name all the 40ft DP you know that are factory rated to tow 15k or more. Pretty sure it will have to have a tag axle to do this.
And would really be nice to find one with 500 or 600hp but those engines seem to only come on 41-45 footers.

The 40 ft Newmar Dutch Star qualifies but its "only" 450hp and "only" has the Allison 3000.
The 41 ft Mountain Aire has 500hp and the Allison 4000 but is only rated to tow 7500. Seems odd. And its a foot too long.
And to get the big boy X15 engine you need to get into the 45 footers at least with Newmar. I need to look at other brands, suggestions?

Trying to stay legal, my open stacker truck/boat project looks like it will be 25ft hitch to back and come in around 13k pounds.
So if I can find a 40 ft DP rated to tow 15k then I can stay under or darn close to the 65 ft overall length law most states use.

Plan B is to just drive around with 70 ft and hope I don't get measured if stopped. I don't like that idea. And could be a problem if in an accident.

All fleetwood revolutions are 15k, with or without tag.
