Just looking at the advertised pin weights for all the sabre 5ers they are all about 1800 -2000 lbs. what is the average available payload of a 2/4 ton truck.

Just remember, the advertised pin weight is artificially and unrealistically low.

To answer the second part of your question- I don't know what 3/4-ton trucks payloads typically run.

As well, I think I mentioned before- I was surprised how much payload my add-one and family ate up per my scale receipts.

I know they are low. If you use real world pin weights then a 3/4 on truck is not capable of pulling anything more than an atv trailer by the time you add people and a hitch . A regular gooseneck trailer unloaded probally exceeds the the payload of most. 3/4 ton trucks.

You're probably very right. I've read here that most people with 3/4 ton trucks exceed GVWR but are comfortable as long as they're under the rear axle and tire weight ratings.

Wish I would have taken a picture of my '10 F250 sticker, but I want to say available was somewhere in the 2300 lb. range. I could be way off base here though.

Is that not what is the limiting factor? If the trailer is level and the truck is level and the tire/axle limits are not exceeded what is the problem if the eng will pull it?

There's already a thread on exceeding ratings or not. Let's keep that discussion there.

Thanks.

Please don't just conclude that if you need a 1-ton that it needs to be a dually. Going to a 1-ton adds about 1000# of payload, and going DRW adds another 1000#. If you need 1000 more, but not 2000 more, then you don't have to go dually!
