Towing with F350 diesel SRW 4x4 crew cab

Looking at Vengeance 396V and the Vengeance 316A. If I am understanding all of these tow guidelines, the pin weight should be fine. What I am worried about is the total weight. We actually wont be towing toys in it so it will just be the water and personal belongings needed for weekend trips. Food, clothes, chairs, grill.

The dry weight of the 396V is 12351lbs. The 100 gallon water tank full would be around 900lbs. The I figured another 2000lbs for misc junk and food. This brings the total weight 15,251 which is under the manufacturer chart of 15,900

We like the toy hauler for the garage area and fenced in party deck for our dog.

I have an '08 SRW Crew Cab Long Bed with the 6.4 diesel. I pull a 42' 5th wheel with a dry weight of about 12,750. I have not weighed loaded but I'd guess you could safely add 1500lbs in stuff. I do not carry water though so save a lot of weight there. The truck pulls it just great. No complaints. Feels very comfortable and handles it nicely. Is it heavy and you know its there? On local roads, yes, but still does great. Cruising is a breeze. Looks like you will be a little heavier. You'll certainly get a lot of varying opinions on here. This is just mine.

I wouldnt worry too much about it. Your 1 ton will be fine. I tow my sierra loaded with my F250 6.0 just fine. Get about 11MPG on flat Texas roads too. I would think that you would have no problems getting it up to 75 in no time!

When you are loaded for your first outing, drop by a truck stop and scale out. That will take all the guessing out of it. Don't forget to fuel up and include all passengers and your dog.

The GCVWR of your SD is 23,500# .... the same as my 250. What is your payload capacity? It is specific to your truck and its options and found on inside the driver's side door.

Many don't care about TV ratings and trailer as long as the combination moves down the road .... it's nice to see you do. I would rather not take that chance. There are too many clueless drivers on the road. If you are involved in an accident and overloaded, YOU will be at fault regardless of the circumstance. I choose not to test my $million umbrella .... too much to lose!
