2013 F250 Lariat 6.7 Powerstroke 4x4 Crew cab with short bed

Looking to buy a 5th wheel and wanting to make sure I should pull with my truck. sticker for payload on truck says cargo should never exceed 1850 lbs. Truck has 3.55 gears and GVWR of 10,000lbs. Camper I am looking at has dry weight of 10,790 lbs and hitch weight of 2,015 lbs. Should I pull this trailer with my truck?

Unfortunately that trailer is almost 200 lbs over what your truck is rated for. the dry weight is as shipped from the factory, before the propane tanks and batteries are installed. this drives the weight up. then add in all of your gear and it goes up more.

Your trucks cargo capacity is without driver and passengers and anything you put in the cab or the bed. my humble opinion is that this would be a poor performing combination. either a truck with more capacity or a lighter trailer.
