Tge GM doesn't need a "camper pkg" its payload and GVWR are already higher than either Ford or Ram for like equipped trucks.

GMC Double 4WD  gcwr 24,000, max hitch 14,500, max 5'r 16,740, max goose 16,740, max payload 3,747

F250 Supercab 4WD  gcwr 28,000, max hitch 15,000, max 5'r 18,800, max payload 3460


Actual facts.

Thanks for confirming GM's higher payload.  That's what's important to me along with a better ride and no death wobble 👍

287 more for the GMC.   "Better ride" is subjective.  Death wobble is an exaggeration, kinda like the undersized tie rods on GM HD trucks.

Got a new 2020 Chev 3500 2months ago and like it very much. Plenty of power and rides great empty or with my maxed out camper. I added airbags to the suspension to level the ride with my camper loaded. Still rides fine.

Hi Rayn I ordered a 22 Silverado 2500HD 6.6 gas. I will have a pop up slide in  truck camper with apx 2000 lbs total weight fully loaded. The payload of said truck is between 3600-3900 depending on what options you select. You should be ok here is a linkmto some payload numbers for 2500HD's   




Wow that is a big link but well worth it!

I’m not sure your 2500hd will end up with a payload of 3600 to 3900. My 3500hd cc lb srw with camper springs has a gvwr of 11,500 and a payload rating of 4,054 lbs. I would guess you would be closer to 3,000.  My slide in camper weight rating on the glove box camper sticker is 3,304 lbs. I don’t think your 2000 lb camper will exceed you camper weight limit so you should be ok.
