Hello all I have read,and read, and read but it seems you can slice the argument whatever way fits your setup best. I just signed docs on a Reflection 367 and am waiting to set up an appointment for the walk through. I have a 2020 F-250 King Ranch 6.7 diesel that I am concerned is not enough truck for the trailer I have picked. Anyone have any experience here? Thanks in advance.

Please give the particulars. Truck max tow, payload etc. Who/what you carry in the truck. 5th wheel weight plus two thousand pounds of water, propane, batteries and stuff.

I’m predicting plenty of power but not enough payload.

A lot depends on exactly how the truck is configured (4X4,4X2, Axle ratio, Tow package?) But roughly you should be good as far as the specs go. But I dont know if I would want to drive it very far. I have had a 7.3 PSD driving on the edge and after having DRW I would never go back.
Truck specs show towing rating of 16100-21700. Carrying cap 3700-3800. Including hitch, tools fuel, dogs, people and anything you load into the Truck
Trailer specs say GVWR 15000 And hitch weight of 2500.
Everything depends on how you are loaded.
So ON PAPER it looks good.

2020 F-250 King Ranch 6.7 diesel
RAWR....6340#

2020 Reflection 367
GVWR ....14495#
22% for WET PIN....3200#

You will be over the trucks GVWR but under/right at the trucks RAWR/Tire Load Rating
THOSE are the weight ratings you need to be concerned with
**can control RV weight by NOT Loading it up to MAX GVWR

Load truck up now 'Camp Ready' ... you/All passengers/any-all 'stuff' (bags, back packs, containers etc) and HITCH

Go to a CAT Scale and get weighed... $12/15
Then you will have ACTUAL Truck Numbers to work with


Is it time for your medication or mine?

First thing, is that the loaded 5er will have a loaded pin weight of 3000# or more, not 2500#. look at the payload sticker inside the drivers door on the truck. Take the 3000# pin weight plus 200# for a hitch, plus any cargo in the truck plus any passengers beyond the driver. This total weight should be lower than the trucks payload capacity.

A 3/4 ton truck can tow a lot, but the limiting factor is the weight it can carry on the hitch.

Your trailer's GVWR is 14,995. I towed that much just fine with my 2009 Chevy 2500 diesel. I just had to add airbags to level the truck is all.

So here's where I get lost.The sticker in the door says 2214? That mean I'm not even close. As I understand it my set up with a 3.31 axle could tow 14,100 but because of the pin weight of ~3,000# I would be over before I ever put it in drive? Sorry to be the noob here but it all makes my head hurt.

2214 is nada for a 3/4 ton truck. My 1/2 ton is 1712. 502 pounds...the diesel cost you more than dollars.

If door sticker says payload rating is 2,214, then you have answered your own question. Not nearly enough payload for that trailer. F350 SRW payload rating can vary over 1,000 lbs depending on the configuration for that particular truck. Probably the same for the F250s.
