Double tape or velcro would probably hold that just fine.

Anyone pulling this unit with an F-250 Diesel? Was curious as to how it did.

Wife and I are looking at this unit as well as an Open Range Bunk 5er. Thanks.

I pull a 320RS which is a little less in weight with a F250 4WD and have no problems. I'm going to add airbags when I get home to even out the squat a little, but no problems with the 6.4 diesel.

We have a 2012 Ford F-250 diesel and have had no problems pulling our fully loaded 385BH. Ours arrived in May of last year. I did add "air lift bags" in the back to help to level out the load and the bed. We have pulled ours throughout the North GA and North Carolina mountains as well the Carolina coast, all over Georgia and throughout northern and central Florida. I am typically getting around 11.5 mpg. A little less in the mountains and a little more through south GA and Florida.

BT Ramblers is your truck a crew, short box, dually?

My F250 is a 5 passenger crew cab with a regular bed. (King Ranch). I didn't order it from the factory so the fifth wheel was added locally.

I enjoy the comfort of my truck.

That is great news. I am looking at a 2013 F350 lariat crew cab with a regular bed 6.7 diesel and was a little worried that it would not be enough truck. Really don't want a dually. I am so happy to hear that you pull it with and F250 SRW.

Should note that the truck is a 4 x 4. However, I have not had to drop it into 4w when pulling.

Have fun.

Personally, I can't wait until spring when we can go out again. Wife's work schedule prevents us from getting out until the latter part of April.

The SRW 350 will tow it just fine. The only reason I thought about a dually was in case of a blowout on the truck. If I was to buy a truck now I would probably get the dually for added stability and reassurance in case of a blowout.

Starting to feel a lot better now that I am hearing that I should be fine. I was trying to figure out the towing specs, GVWR, Payload, Hitchweight,etc. Then I realized that i should stop before I lose my full head of hair.
