RE: Much asked question/difference between 3/4 ton and 1 ton?

No a 3/4 and 1 ton are not the same. If you want to know the difference go to the manufacturers site and read the truck specs.

RE: Ford F-350 6.7 V8 Diesel 4WD SRW CC, LB and Towing Capacity

I don't know what you are reading but it isn't the ford 5th wheel towing specs. Forget about the personal opinions and mags and read the ford published towing specs. Ford Towing Specs

RE: Advice on tire issue with fifth wheel

Overloading the tires and/or running them under or overinflated will damage the tires and cause tire failure. Keep the tires inflated to the pressure indicated on the sidewall.

RE: Truck upgrades

Figure out what you are going to tow, read the towing specs for your truck and get what you need.

RE: Manslaughter charges for improper towing equipment.

This happened locally and I never really believed that investigators would really check into this stuff. http://m.ktvu.com/news/news/local/chp-recommends-charges-fatal-pizza-oven-crash/nhgkX/ Discussion? I hope the van driver gets at least 25 years in prison.

RE: Manslaughter charges for improper towing equipment.

This happened locally and I never really believed that investigators would really check into this stuff. http://m.ktvu.com/news/news/local/chp-recommends-charges-fatal-pizza-oven-crash/nhgkX/ Discussion? The state troopers in NC filed felony charges on an individual that had an inadequate tow vehicle for a TT which started fishtailing, turned the whole rig over on the I40 median, killed the drivers son and seriously injured his daughter. I hope he ended up sitting in prison thinking about his children because of his refusal to get an adequate tow vehicle. These dummies endanger everyone on the hiway.

RE: Issues with my 2001 F-250 7.3L transmission continue...

Mine was the same but a 1999. The stats I saw said to expect 40k on the transmission if you were towing with it and then would need to be rebuilt. I got 80k out of mine before I had to have it rebuilt. You can always do a bing or google search for info since you are on the internet.

RE: Landmark 365

You may want to look at a different make if you want a high end RV.

RE: A NEW SRW vs DRW pulling a short heavy FW

A drw will haul more weight over the rear axle than a srw, do you need it? Read the specs. I have had both 1 ton models. The srw was just as stable as the drw.

RE: Getting out of an extended warranty?

You bought it, its yours. Forget about it and go where you want.

RE: towing with f250 gas

The first thing you need to do is pick a trailer so you know how much it weighs then get the truck towing specs and read them to see if your truck is rated to tow that much weight. Forget personal opinions and get the facts, you are legally responsible for having an adequate tow vehicle.

RE: Manslaughter charges for improper towing equipment.

http://m.ktvu.com/news/news/local/chp-recommends-charges-fatal-pizza-oven-crash/nhgkX/ As he should be charged. I have zero sympathy of those who think it won't happen to them. If you pull over weight or don't have the proper equipment this is what damage you can do X2

RE: Selecting a hitch

Get a hitch that will handle the weight of your trailer. Yes you need a slider if you do not have an 8ft bed.

RE: 2014 f 150

Why don't you read the towing specs and stay safe instead of looking for personal opinions? Ford Towing Specs

RE: Locked inside by entry assist handle

Just make sure you have plenty of food and drink inside.

RE: Short Box + 5'VR = Disaster????

You are right in coming to the conclusion that short box trucks and fifth wheels really don't do well together. They work as long as a slider is installed and used for turning backwards or forward. Without the slider when you have to make a tight turn the cab is at risk as well as the front corner of the 5th wheel trailer? Go with a long bed (8ft) truck not a short bed or standard.

RE: Finding out how much we can tow

The other one we were looking at was a Forest River Heritage Glen. Length: 36'7" Hitch weight: 1490 Dry Weight: 9545 GVWR: 11,510 Cargo capacity: 1906 I have a 2500 Dodge/Cummins and pull a 11200 lb 5th wheel trailer with two slides. Great combo. Our 2500 Dodge trucks have a 6000 RAWR that carries the hitch load from a trailer. Your Mega Cab and all the kids/other gear may have a 3000-3200 lb rear axle weight which leaves 2800-3000 lb for a payload. A 11500 GVWR 5th wheel trailer can have a 2300 lb pin wight which can bring the trucks rear axle weight to approx 5500 lbs. Now add another 200 lbs for a hitch = 5700 lbs. You now have 300 lbs reserve before going over axle/tire load ratings. The truck and this trailer make a good match. Thank you for the input. This stuff is really confusing if you don't know what you're doing, which I don't! I just want to make sure we are (1) safe and (2) don't damage our vehicle by towing more than we can handle. If you need definitions do a google or bing search on the term or acronym.
