The tongue weight on the 48' I looked at was in the 3500lb range. Thats solidly in dually territory for both axle weight and stability. If we decide to do it, I plan on buying once, and crying once.

I also know the most my insurance will insure is a 1 ton dually of any make. The F-450 is an exception, but any true medium duty chassis will cost you $texas in insurance, not to mention fuel and maintenance. Thankfully, I have a while before I would need to cross that bridge, but a dually and gooseneck trailer would also mean crossing off some bucket list tracks like NJMP, Watkins Glen, Mid Ohio and Road America. One day...

Thought the F250 SD -D RGAWR was 6100 lbs.

The only think bigger is the Kenworth truck.

All of them are nothing more than Small semi's with truck beds or SUV bodies.
Yes that one. He traded his supercharged Viper in on it.

The dually is in the 6k range. The SRW 350 is 3500lbs I think, and the 250 is 2400. Those are off the top of my head, but I do know the main difference between the 250 and 350 besides the door sticker is about $800, blocks and rear springs. Most goosenecks start in the 2800lb range and go up from there depending in options. FWIW, there is a Vintage Outlaw in Wake Forest for sale, 48ft with living quarters. Unloaded weight is something like 10k, pin wight of 3k. Its a 60k trailer that's two years old and listed for $25k. I'm convinced the depreciation is so bad because of what's required to tow it.

Yeah, but it's probably already carrying 2,500 lbs of weight from the unladen truck itself. Add in 3,800 lbs of unladen 5th wheel pin weight, some more payload in the bed, and toys/potable water/generator fuel in the front of the toyhauler and then you're way over RGAWR without even blinking an eye.

Well the F350/F450 is only 7000 lbs, so you may run into issues there as well.

12 hp? Is the exhaust or intake really restrictive?

The gains are probably mostly down low and in lag reduction. They make their off the shelf tunes fairly conservative to prevent blowing motors up. I'm sure a protune would show much better gains.

http://www.ford.com/trucks/superduty...tions/chassis/

Per the above, a F-350 dualie RGAWR is 9,650 lbs, and a crewcab 4x4 with the diesel and 3.73 gears has a GCWR of 21,700 lbs.

Given that the truck itself probably weighs close to 7,000 lbs then the GCWR would actually be the limiting factor for the dualie + a big trailer setup, not the axle.

If one really wanted to play over the road trucker with a pickup then maybe going with a 2013 Ram 3500 would be in order. GCWR won't be formally released until January 2013 but their CEO's comment during the unveiling of the lineup suggested that it'd be over 26,000 lbs, the limit after which one needs a CDL...

sorry, the 7,100 was for the SRW, missed the DRW rating.

You can actually register a vehicle for under its weight rating.

Well there's discusssion going on right now. I believe the Stage 2 setup will create more HP as Cobb is saying the turbo is out of breath with the stage 1 tune. So I assume the down pipe and exhaust are restricting flow as well as a small intercooler.

The actual weight of the dually is closer to 7700 pounds. You almost always run over the GAWR before hitting either your payload, GVWR or GCWR.

Also, needing a CDL for over 26k is a myth. Further, in NC, you register for your weighted tag based on what your combined weight as driven is, regardless of the sticker weight.

Yep, one of the guys on the local predator hunting forum I frequent got busted for being over his tagged weight while he was pulling a trailer with 4 quads on it with no trailer brakes. My understanding is that his fines start in the thousands...
