I am just starting to look for a new or good used toy hauler. My truck is a 2002 F350 SC 4x4 PSD. The combined gross is 20,000 lbs. I would like a unit to live in for a month or two at the most. From what I have seen the pin weight on the tri axles are way too heavy for our truck. Any suggestions or comments other than a new truck. That is out of the question. Thanks.
Denny

I'm not too familiar with the ford but is yours a single rear wheel or a dually? Even if its a single you should be able to handle something like an LE 31-3505, especially if you don't get a slideout in the bedroom. Maybe some of our LE and ford owners will jump in here and give you more info. Good luck on your search.

Tom, mine is a single rear wheel. The gross is 9900 lbs for the truck alone. I will check out that LE31-3505. Thanks for the information.

Lets look at the numbers.
As you said, your GVWR is 9900lbs.
Your GCWR is 20,000lbs.

Because you have a Super Cab and not a Crew Cab, that helps since the truck is lighter.
My 02 F250 PSD CC weighed 7200lbs with full fuel and no passengers.
I would say your truck weighs around 6800lbs.
So, 9900-6800=3100lbs available for passengers and pin weight.
20,000-6800=13200lbs for total weight.
You might be able to get a LE3105 or 3305.
What do you plan on hauling in the trailer?

Thanks Lincster. That's what I was thinking. I am currently towing a 199 Prowler 27.5 LSI. It has no trouble pulling that trailer. I am going to look at Keystone Sporster and an Artic Fox if I can find one.
