Which is a downside to the F250, my 2011 can pull 16,300 lbs fith wheel and 23,500 lbs GCWR, but with the 10,000 lb rating on the truck and real pin weight of about 2,000 lbs and axle weight, you are limited to much less. Having driven over weight cattle trailer for years, I want to to take it easy and not push any limits. Good Luck

for just a little extra $ go for the 350 so you don't have to stress it. in terms of the 4x4 vs 2wd, I have discovered that the front end of the diesel is so heavy that it has trouble backing up a hill on a soft surface like gravel or dirt. I tend to spin and go nowhere unless I put it in 4 wd on dry ground. I wasn't even going to be able to back my 7000 lb Tt into a spot at endless caverns last year without 4wd. it was a back in site that I had to back up hill on gravel to get into. I spun out in 2wd but got it in easily in 4wd.

Many thanks. It was at the last minute that I noticed the payload issue on the F-250. My F-350 has an 11,500 GVWR and a payload capacity of 3970 lbs. Glad I made the move up.
