Last year we pulled our new Silverback 29RE with a 2011 F-250 gasser. The truck did well for the most part, but the weight was getting a little too close to maxing out the truck for my liking. Add to that the fact that 8 mpg only gave us about a 200 mile range, and the search began in earnest for a diesel tow vehicle with a higher GVW and one where we could install a 50 gallon Transfer Flow fuel tank in the bed.
This afternoon we pulled the trigger on a 2013 F-350 King Ranch dully 6.7L 14K GVW that the dealer had on the lot. It seems the truck was ordered late last year but the guy would never call the dealer back after the truck arrived. The dealer, not wishing to pay floor-plan on a high end truck that might be a hard sale (in this area, at least) was more then happy to give us a very good deal. Brown's not my color, but I can live with it.
The GVWR is 14,000 pounds and the cargo capacity is just over 6000 pounds. That should be enough truck, even for the most stringent weight police.
Oh, yea...pictures to follow!!
