This 3450RL is 40 feet long and GVRW of 16,000lbs. I would at least get the F-350 or F450. Although I don't believe the F-450 comes in a single axel, yet.

Single axle? I think it does. Single rear wheel, maybe not. I'm guessing that this is what you meant to say.

We have a 2016 3850RL Cardinal that has weights posted dry at 13950 and I am sure that we had it loaded well for a plus-week trip to the mountains of Tennessee. We have a new 2015 F350 srw diesel that has rear of 3.55 gears that pulled and stop just fine for its first trip out. I have the standard bed so we went with the super-glide hitch 4400 and it to me is well worth the money. Long story but the short of it BUY all the TRUCK you can you will never be sorry for the decision.

5th wheel calculator

Fifth Wheel St. App Promo

I use this one to confirm weights of TV and TT safety margins. There are others for sure, but I like the red/green information this one provides.

Sorry I did it again. I need to remember not everyone uses a MAC product. This is the desktop site.

I pulled my 3450 RL with an 07 GMC 2500 Duramax Std bed and was right at the rear wheel axle weight rating. I thought it pulled ok until I purchased a DRW. There is no comparison. My dually has to sit outside and it's a small price to pay for safety !

Nobody wants a dually until they try one.
PS The mirrors stick out further than the fenders and that's without extending them for towing.

The OP hasn't replied to any postings for nearly a month. Perhaps he doesn't like the answers? I recommend a 350/3500 DUALLY.
