How much can a F250/F350 Really pull?

I just called a dealership and asking about possible trading my 1500 for a F250. I asked about towing weights. If I remember correctly these are the weights he gave.

F250 - TT 11000 , fifth wheel 13,500
F350 - TT 13000, fifth wheel 17,500

these numbers seem WAY to high? Can anyone verify?

EDIT: Im not looking for exact towable weights. Therefore I know I left key points like crew cab, 4x4, diesel, one with 7.3 the other with 6.0 motor and gearing unsure

I believe it should be worded: safely pull and stop. Now let the bashing begin.

I pulled my brothers 17,000 plus King of the Road 5th wheel with his '01 (I think) 350 Diesel crew cab dually. Didn't even break a sweat.

I pulled my 16K King of the road - first with a Ford 3/4 ton then went to a 3500 Dodge - both diesels. Pulling was not the concern but hitch weight and stopping ability concerned me.
