I am looking at a purchasing a Voltage 3200. My truck is a 2012 F250 King Ranch with the Powerstroke Diesel, 3.55 rear end.

Is this enough truck to tow this? How close is the "margin" of comfort/error?

Thanks for your input!

What are the weights of the trailer and rating of the truck? You need to know this stuff.

Joe, on paper it looks fine. My truck 5er capacity is 15200 and the trailer is 11600. Even loaded with toys and full fluids I don't know if I would reach 15200. Bed weight is 3300 and the trailers pin weight is 2300.

I just want to here from people using that combo, for added comfort.

the only thing I would question is the 3.55's. pretty tall gears for mtn towing even with the 6.7.

The 6.7 with the 3:55's should be fine. All the new motors make plenty of tq. That truck will do fine with that trailer imo.

You need to be aware of how fast "stuff" adds up. e.g. 100 gallons of water 1000 lbs; 2 motorcycles: 1800 lbs; black & grey tanks: pick a number 1000 lbs; beer: ?; generator: 200 lbs; extra battery: 50 lbs; fuel (gen & fueling station): 500 lbs; food, clothes, etc.

What's that add up to? 1000+1800+1000+200+50+500+11600 = 16150 = OOPS!

Yea, I have seen that. We ride dirt bikes, so all 4 total 550lbs wet. I would travel with low fluids just to save the fuel, even if it was in limit. But I see your point it is something we would always be careful of.

Advrider29, I have a Voltage 3200 with a genny, Happyjack bunk beds in the garage and the tailgate patio set up. Loaded for vacation with full propane tanks, 1 DRZ400e, a Suzuki Twin Peaks ATV, riding gear, full gas station and genny tanks, 40 gallons of water, 30 lbs of dog food, 30 lbs of cast iron dutch ovens, and miscellaneous personal gear for two for a 3 week trip, the trailer weighed 15,650 lbs, 2,350 on the pin, and 13,300 lbs on the axles. The empty weight of the trailer was 13,100 lbs (with propane and 50 gallons of gas). I have 3.73 rearend gears in my Duramax. Toys and gear add up quickly.
