Thats not much weight at all, just make sure the hitch/frame is beefy on the motorhome, its not uncommon to have to add strength. People pull 32 foot trailers with double your weight all the time.

i pull a 32 ft trailer behind my 35 ft motorhome. i did take the motorhome in and had the frame and hitch beefed up otherwise it could pull the body mouts away from the chassis. cost me 130.00 but well worth it. :P

You will have no problems pulling what you have. As mentioned above, get added strenght to that hitch and rear frame.

I agree beef up the frame and hitch and it will be fine. I pull a 32ft with a 37ft Motor home. I had my frame and hitch redone and had them fab a hitch. No problems at all towing. Although I have a diesel rather than gas.

Check the hitch, I have a 30' class C with a 460 and pull a 24' and a 3200# car. The hitch is rated and mine was only 5000#, refabbed and beefed it up. That is the deal.
