2014 Wildcat 317RL

I bought a 2012 F250SD Diesel to tow my 5er. I would like to know if anyone has the same TV towing a trailer like mine. Hitch Weight 1855lbs Unloaded Weight 10,085lbs GVWR 12,255lbs Cargo Capacity 2,111lbs. My TV is the short bed with a pullright 4100 super glide hitch. I'm thinking of getting a Dually 1 Ton but need any input that would assist me.

I say you are good as is. I tow a slightly heavier 5th wheel with my F250 6.7 diesel with no issues. I tow all over the USA including big mountains. Enjoy your rig!

I tow with a 14' 250 and slightly higher weight. No problems here. I don't see the need for a dually pulling that weight

while not towing with a Ford, but my 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 has no problem with my Wildcat 327CK (similar weight to yours)

Our 2012 344qb wildcat has the same pin, but weights a little more then yours and my 06 CC 2500hd handles it with ease in weight and power

Heck, I'm towing a 2015 317RL with a 2013 F250 gas 6.2l with no problems. Scale weight of loaded trailer is 12,000 lb and pin weight 2,300 lb.
