Ford says my 2013 F250 SB CC 6.7 has a cub weight of 7454. I have never had it on the scales.

Here's a picture of my rig getting ready to hit the hi way.

The trailer is a standard 20ft equipment trailer, it has disc brakes and a wood floor. If I remember correctly it's about 1200lbs, it's a Big Tex trailer the wonderful parts department at Lazydays picked it up for me for just a little over 4 grand.
Hope this helps, good luck.

Your trailer will weigh 2500lbs easy. I have one just like it. We have a 18 foot all aluminum, everything except the axles and hitch. It weighs 1400lbs. The steel trailers weigh about twice as much.

KSCRUDE, I never intended to pull the F350 DRW. It pulls a 18K 5th wheel for the moment. We are talking about my wife's F250.

You could keep her F250 and trade your F350 off on a 150, which is four down towable. Or are you going to keep the fiver and have two RVs? Then she would be happy.

Great! How well does it handle the tongue weight and what's the tow rating of your rig??

My Safari Cascade has a 10,000 hitch on it and handles it like it's not there, except on those long steep climbs. I only bought the trailer because I needed one for my business; I honestly would not want to haul that much weight around on a regular basis, burns to much fuel.

I am sorry you are correct, I quoted the weight for one of my other trailers. According to the mfg. my Big Tex has a shipping weight of 2940lbs. So that trailer with my 7756lb truck was pushing my pay load for my hitch to it's max; but it came though with flying colors.

This thought has crossed my mind. I will sell / trade the 5th wheel, when I get a MH. I will not need the dually.
