To much trailer for my truck?

Looking at a New 389fl my truck is a 2017 Ford F350 6.7L srw. Is this too much trailer for my truck?

Go weigh the truck.

See what’s left on the truck’s maximum weight (GVWR), rear axle weight rating (RAWR), and your tire loading capacity.

Then use this to get an idea of what your wet/loses pin weight will be:

Not enough information about your truck if you want a true answer. Start here:

Then, like ependydad said, know your truck weight and payload capacity (yellow sticker inside the driver's door.)
