We use a 2008 F350 dually diesel to pull our 2013 Cedar Creek Touring Edition. We had a 2007 Cardinal 3QS before this trailer. I notice that the F350 sits a little lower with the Cedar Creek than it did with the Cardinal. I weighed the truck and trailer and the pin weight is about 3000 pounds, which is too heavy for a F250 SRW. We originally had the F250 and it was only rated for 1900 pounds cargo weight. The F350 is rated 4400 pounds cargo weight, which can easily handle the pin weight of 3000 pounds.

Ok here's where I'm gonna get a lot of feed back - that I may not like. But I asked for it! We bought a 2013, 2500 GMC, SRW, Duramax/Allison. Good so far right? I checked the weights, based on the mfg's charts, that it can tow. We'd like to get a 2013, 36CKTS. If any of you tow with SRW, please let me know your thoughts and cautions or experiences.

A 2013 GMC 2500HD SRW .... Assuming 4WD, Crew Cab Long Box... it is rated at 3305 Cargo and 14,700 5th wheel towing.
You're looking at 3000lbs pin weight and close to 16,000lbs of loaded 36CKTS. Can you tow it, sure you can. Is it safe and should you tow with a 3/4 ton SRW...
I think not. I towed with a F250 CC SB and after 5000 miles of rough ride and dismal fuel economy, traded it in. I would never tow at these weights with a SRW 3/4 ton again. However, lots of folks do it.

Duck, what engine was your F250? What's your current truck and what mileage are you getting now?

We did a search for this type info but results were disappointing so would really appreciate your input.

Thanks for your expert assistance,

Get a new 2014 dodge 3500 they think you can pull a house within.

Man I just love all the "Safety Experts" on here. NHTSA & OSHA will be sending their recruiters over here.

Only if the house doesn't have any mice in it.
