Maybe I am just not understanding something here...
My 5th wheel max tow weight is 16100. (http://www.ford.com/trucks/superduty/specifications/towing/)
So unless I am just horrible at math, fully loaded I am still short of the max for my vehicle.
And cummins, I don't know what you mean "get a real truck"...Sounds like you are just partial to your dodge. I used my father in law's 3500 just to see what his sag was, and it was similar if not the same in my truck.
So I think the only way to not "bandaid" as you so elegantly put it, is to get a f-450/4500. Maybe those who aren't as fortunate as you, will just have to suffice with a "bandaid".
To everyone else, thanks for the input! I just purchased the truck, so if the wife wants to do laundry while camping, she needs to hit up the laundry mat
