New to fifth wheel and toy haulers

Hi all,
My family and I have started looking into toy haulers and doing a good bit of traveling in the coming years. Iíve been trying to do some research about best brands, sizes and layouts and also what would fit my truck best. I will be towing with a 2013 Ford F-350 crew cab SRW with a 6í bed and the 6.7l Power Stroke. I will also be bringing along a 2019 Polaris RZR 900s. Iíve been looking at toy haulers with at least a 12.5í garage because I would like to upgrade to a four seater RZR at some point and would like to be prepared with the extra room. My big concern is that Iím getting over zealous with the size of the trailer for my truck. The brochure says itís fifth wheel tow rating is 15,900lbs. So Iím thinking I should be looking for a trailer that has a dry weight under 13,000lbs so I have room to load. Also is there anything I can do to increase the towing capacity of the truck? Itís already running a light tow tune with the DEF deleted and straight piped from the turbo back. I also have upgraded Fox reservoir racing shocks in it. Any input is much appreciated!

In terms of your trucks towing capacity, the number that tends to sneak up on you if you're hauling additional passengers, cargo in the bed, etc. is the payload rating of the vehicle (which will also include the tongue weight of the trailer).

^^^^^^^this^^^^ . There are some wolfpacks with dry weights around 11k and 12-13 ft garages with empty pin weights of 2-2500 lbs. Those would fit the bill imo.
