Here is my professional approach, since you were very friendly :

F-250 Diesel 6l tow (5'th wheel) capacity (Assuming 4X2, and automatic transmission, anything else is lower rated) I believe you have a 4X4 since you claim to have a payload of 2,700 Lbs. So you look ok on the 5'th wheel weight side you can tow.

3.73 : 15,900
4.10 : 16,100
4.30 : 18.600

But, at GVWR your 5'th wheel will have a pin weight which is very close to 2.600 Lbs. Since your payload is only 2,700 Lbs, I guess you always carefully keep your 5'th weight in check and ensure that it allows you to fuel the truck, get yourself and possibly the family in, and also makes allowance for the weight of the 5'th wheel hitch sitting in the bed of the truck.

And yes, you are probably overweight depending on how much you carry in your 5'th wheel. But of course, that doesn't make any difference for you, until one day it does all the difference.

I am not a weight police, I just enjoyed your very polite conversation

Doesn't look like you have enough truck based on the numbers discussed by the other members ......I hope you are not really set on that trailer, or maybe it is a good thing, a TV upgrade with a new truck
