New Dually

Traded my 2017 F250, 6.7 Diesel for a F350, DRW, 6.7 Diesel. The 250 XLT had a payload of 2,228 lbs and I was often close to that packing equipment and friends. My new 350 has a payload of 5,436 lbs. Hopefully I'll never get close to that.....unless the DW chooses to upgrade the camper as well!

I've learned a lot about campers and towing from the members of this Forum and I want to thank all of you. Special thanks to the Site Team for the hours of support and constant patience to help those in need.

Don't even THINK about the old "Baby, let's just stop, take a break, and look around to stretch our legs" for at least two years! And don't ask how I know. (Great color, by the way)

You really know how to make a guy drool all over his laptop keyboard.

That's not a tow vehicle... it's a locomotive!

As stated before congratulations on the new truck, just a question.

I am assuming that that is a 2019 or 2020 F350 DRW, it must be a totally loaded unit as you state a payload of 5,436#, I thought the newer all aluminum bodies were closer to 6,000# for even a loaded unit. Our 2016 Ram Laramie 3500 DRW has a sticker payload of 5,411# which is only 25# less then your F350.

It's a 2020 XLT. Here is the door sticker. Not sure why it is "low" but I'm happy.

That payload is likely more than double of the F250 you replaced.
