Default Tow capacity of 2004 M380

I have a friend looking at a two slide M380. He asked me for help, as I have a BB, but it is a 1990 Wanderlodge.

He does intend on towing a larger trailer with stuff on it. Does a M380 have the 10k tow of a Wanderlodge? I looked thru specs on WOG, and cannot seem to find tow capacity.

Thanks.

Melvin

Thank you both!
Although, with the 1000# tongue rating, 10,000# is hard to reach, considering usually 15% or so is needed tongue weight.
Randy, I have advised him to call you, as it is listed on your site.
Thanks again.

If your hitch looks anything like this your only limited by the size of the bar going into the receiver 2” , 2 1/2” , and other equipment, size matters
