Single Cab "3/4 ton" will be fine. 4x4 CrewCab and he will be over the ratings. Will it do it, without a doubt any of the three 3/4 ton trucks will tow it. Will it do it and be with the payload/GVWR, that will depend on cab config and powertrain.

Also, since the OP is already showing the signs of upgrade-itis, and my personal experience is that that disease is hard to cure, going to the 1 ton would ensure at least 1 round of trailer upgrades without issue, HA!

OK, I am thankful for all the responses. So here are my numbers for F-350 6.7 4x4 CC SRW: GVWR 11400, Payload 3970, My wife and I weigh in at 310, the majority of that is me! A Reese fifth wheel hitch is about 250. and around 300 for fuel. that makes it ~8389 pounds(including 7935 curb weight). That being said, My max actual hitch weight will be around 3011 lbs. and my GCVR would be 23500, minus 8389 leaves max 5'er at 15111 max which is a little less than what is advertised. I am looking at a 2015 Silverback 33RL with a hitch weight of 2015 and dry weight of 10415, and after loading it up to the max, hitch weight of ~2800 at 14015 lbs. I know I am being anal about this but have been burned on my F-150 not being able to safely tow a Flagstaff 831RLBSS. I think after hearing all the above comments, I am good with the F-350! Hope these numbers are right, if anyone sees a glich in the numbers, please speak up as I am going to buy the F-350 tomorrow, maybe even the 33RL.

Hi,

2014 33RL here again.

IIRC, sort of working backwards, loaded I had about 9,800# on the axles, and about 3.000 in the truck (pin, passengers and fuel). This was a '09 Chevy K-2500 Duramax standard cab, standard bed, which they rate at 9.200#, even though the axle ratings total about 9,800. (Wish I had that weigh ticket and access to the truck to read its sticker).

So your 3,011 payload estimate is in the same range as my actual number. With that GGWR on the truck, I'd say you're going to be fine. Have fun working those dealers over for good prices!!!

365 RL on a F-250 Super Duty

I invested in a set of Super Springs and installed them myself before I picked up my new unit.
It sits more level and rides more stable than most one ton units
Stability at speeds over 70 mph is not a problem.
Can send a pic if you need
My pin weight is over 2150 and the truck height changes 1.9 inches

I hope you're running LT tires and not ST on your trailer.
