Default GCWR-99 Sun Voyager

Have a quick questions for those SVB 99 Diesel pushers. My SVB has a GVWR of 23K lbs (8K in front and 15K in rear). Since I don't have all the specific manuals, I figure I'd ask here.

I have a 5K lbs hitch and want to tow a 4,300 lbs mini-van (on a tow dolly). Its my understanding that the Gross Combined Weight Rating is the max weight the SVB will take without damaging something such as the transmition.
What is the GCWR of the Sun Voyager 1999 Diesel?
Are there any "gouges" of weight limits I should be aware of.
Thanks in advance

Default GCWR

on my rating stiker is has the gcwr as 30750 lbs.
unloaded vehicle wgt-uvw 22,610
net carring capacity NCC - 3135
Gross vehicle wgt GVWR - 25750
Model SVB 8362

Subtract gvwr from Gcwr means a towing capacity of 5000. if the vehicle is fully loaded with the NCC 3135. If you are using a dolly the tongue wgt. Should not be a problem but should be checked.
Hope this helps

Thank you Dexter. I appreciate it. Received from the manufacturer a 32,000 combined weight rating. So I have a 9,000 leeway which I think provides me ample room to carry up to 4,000 lbs inside the coach in addition to the tow vehicle. Again Thanks.
