Rodney (Karl4cat) was an avid member here. He's no longer on this forum. But he was one of the first members I knew who had an XLR. I think it was a 395. He went from Mass. to Couch's in Ohio to buy his. If memory serves me correctly, he had to take it back for service one time as well.

No problems at all pulling his 395 and he had a super cab F250.

Note the 5th wheel specs for scook's truck. He's SRW, not dually.

Rodney pulls his 395 with a super cab F350, soon to be 2017 crew cab F350. I pull my 395 with a '15 crew cab F350, no problem at all.

last time we talked, Rodney was thinking about an F-450. He was/ or is towing with SRW 350 PS ... abt a 2012 or 2013 I don't recall the year. And, he was under gross weight ratings except GCWR which he was slifgtly over.

Our concern is once RZR, water and fuel are loaded we would be close to max weight. Sounds like there a few pulling with no issues. We really like the floor plan of this model but may need to find trailer with a lower weight.

What everyone lets slide will be the first thing a lawyer will go after if you are even in a serious accident.. Brakes...Stopping that sort of weight. Pulling isnt an issue with these newer diesels. Stopping is something completely different. I
I know our trailer is over 20k loaded.. Ever try and come to an emergency stop with that much weight pushing you from behind??

Keep in mind the trailer has brakes. With that much weight and 6 braking wheels, you should be able to stop the entire rig with just the trailer brakes.

I have had both SRW/DRW to pull my 401 AMP. It 43 long, 14500 dry weight and when loaded with dirt bike atv, full water(600lr) and full gas I'm totalling 18200.
My dodge SRW specs stated max towing at 17000lb. Wife wanted to be within manufacture specs as it was still under warranty. So I got a DRW (only added another 5 months of payments) max towing with the 3:72 axel is now 18500. Same truck apart from rear diff. Both pulled fine only thing I have lost now is dropping the engines sweet spot from 110km/h(70mph) at 1500 rpm to 95/100 km/h(60mph). I found keeping it at 1500 rpm was where it liked to be. I have also lost about 50-100km per tank depending on how I drive. So the debate on DRW/SRW I'm still undecided.
