You are in BC? I believe that is about the only jurisdiction where exceeding truck GVWR is ticketable.
BC RV and Towing regs.
Get a dually!!

I have a 2014 Landmark Savannah and have a 3800 LB. pin, and this is with a loaded weight of 15,580 lbs.


So, a =weighed= pin ratio of 24.3%. At GVW, that's right at 3,950 lbs. Personally, I might do it, but I'd have =everything= in the FW, and nothing but full fuel and the DW in the truck.

Well I don't know about the LM Savana, but I seen a 2015 F250 diesel SRW pulling a Mobile Suites that has a GVW of 20K. I assume that TV had air bags because it was sitting level. I am certain that TV was well beyond Ford's specs and seem to be doing well pulling that trailer.
If the F250 and F350 dually have the same frame and same axles with the only difference is more tires on a dually, I don't see problem if the F250 has the tires rated at the load with air bags supporting the extra load.
