That's because it's a Ford.

Pass the popcorn....

I went down the same path your going down now so trust me that these responses are dead on. Just remember the certified weight labels for each vehicle are unique and are the ones you must use to calculate the adjusted payload capacity of any TV you are interested in purchasing.

I posted this earlier after discovering I didn't purchase what I thought I was purchasing and thought it might be helpful to you.
"Duramax 6.6L 4X4 actual axle weights look wrong"

Enjoy your TV search.

Thanks for looking at the guide. Since the OP was asking about a FW that maxed out at 16,800lbs, he could pull it with a 2016 SRW F350 as long as he keeps it at 16,799lbs or less. Perhaps leaving a pound of coffee at home would make him legal.

I would leave all food at home before I left coffee. As I learn about this stuff the wife and I have been looking at smaller and more importantly lighter 5th wheels. My main problem with DRW is it wouldnt fit in our garage, its tight enough with a SRW. And the rare occasion when the DW has to drive the truck to work, she has to park in a parking garage and she doesn't want to try to park in those tiny spaces.

DRW isn't wider than the mirrors, unless you have to fold them in to get in your garage a DRW will fit.

I do have to have them folded and retracted to fit into our garage. Not fun but it is what it is.

Ok. That solves it. New garage, new 5er and new truck.

Problem solved.

I like the way you think. Sadly the DW and bank account doesn't. Lol

He'd have to leave more than a pound of coffee.
Max single-wheel 5er weight from tables is 16,600# with a 2wd regular cab F250. That goes down to 16,500# with the F350 regular cab.
