People have done it... My advice even though the 365 is an awesome machine, is to find a small unit, if your not going to upgrade trucks. Your families safety has to be number 1. It will pull it yes but you will be at(probably over) all the trucks ratings. Adding airbags will help to level out the load. I pulled ours with an 2006 f350 with a far from stock 6.0l diesel and bags and it was a workout for it. I upgraded to a 2014 F350 dually for the added security. So I wouldn't suggest anything smaller then a 1 ton SRW. Remember the salesman in trying to sell a trailer, he isn't worried about what happens after you leave his lot.

2012 F-250 6.7 Powerstroke and 365 SAQ

I pull my 2012 365 SAQ with a SRW, 2012 F-250, CC, Short bed, 4X4 with a 6.7 Powerstroke and Air bags. The air bags really make towing this trailer much more pleasant and the truck sits level, no sag. Tows just fine and plenty of power, just a beast to get stopped! Can't imagine towing this trailer, loaded, without a diesel. JMHO.

Pulled mine with a Ram 2500 diesel. I added air bags. Pulled okay on calm days. Stopped well with exhaust brake. Became a monster in a strong crosswind. Traded it for a 330rl. Loved to camp in the saq but hated pulling it. The wind always blows here in Kansas.

Dunno if it's too late or not, but I would not advise this combo.

I have a 2008 2500HD with the 6.0 gasser that pulls my WA2715. She's only ~1500Lbs on the hitch and around 8,000-9,000Lbs overall depending on if she's hauling the toy. I run a weight distribution hitch and dual pad anti-sway bars.

I know the 5th wheel is a bit different, but going off how she pulls the 2715, I wouldn't dare put any more weight behind her. She's the extended cab long bed 4x4. I average around 55MPH getting about 7MPG doing everything I can to keep the RPMs below 2,500. I'm guessing i'll only be able to get a max of 40,000 miles out of her pulling like she is, although, I wouldn't be surprised if she'd dead in 20,000.

I'm guessing that a tow cam, air bags (cause the suspension is at its limit), new head gaskets, valves, rods, maybe rockers, upgraded oil & trans coolers along with a tune would get her into a better place but I'll probably just trade up to a diesel when I get the money...
