I have a 2015 F350 Power Stroke Diesel Lariat 4 wheel drive package 3744 cargo (see sticker below) and checking the yellow tags on F 250 I couldn't find a F 250 over 2700 lbs.
Mine is 2750 lb's with the camper package. 2000 lb's plus 150 x 5 for each passenger. The yellow lawyer label is 2350 lb's. The dealer called their contact that confirmed the camper package weight is correct.
When I looked at the lot there where no super cab trucks on the lot. The closet I could find was a lariat with 3100 lb's which was a crew cab. That is where my 400 lb's difference comes from
I looked at Ford Fleet and towing capacity for Fifth Wheel Weight is the same for the Super Cab F250/ F 350. You are right the pin weight is effected by the equipment label. Lots of Fivers we could upgrade too keeping it at 37/38 ft max would be within the CCC of the truck.
Because of this being a daily driver for 11 more years the SRW, 6.75 ft box and Supercab were critical in the decision. By the time I retire I will probably want a new truck anyways so this will do for now, current fifth wheel, some upgrade capability as well.
