It has a lot of details on the right tow vehicle specs to consider. Also for a great hitch that is 75% lighter, check out https://andersenhitches.com all aluminum 5th and tow products.
As Goducks stated, your insurance company will pay. They take the risk and pay if you're at fault. I don't know who told you this baloney, but it is not true.

This is the proper way to say that "The insurance company will pay up to the limits of your policy". You probably have 250,000 limit but check out the medical limits of probably around 25,000 per person, you could go though that in one day in the intensive care. Over that you on the hook. of coarse if found negligent by a judge you could be stuck with the entire bill.

It's explained in the link below....

Ok, thanks for all the help.
2014 F350, more stuff than I know what to do with. Got the deal I wanted. So now I am looking for a used B&W companion hitch. Drop into a goose neck B&W hole/ slot.

Just curious what is the GVWR and Yellow sticker payload on that SRW F350? Ford makes F350s with GVWR from 10,000# to I believe 11,400#.
There is not a great difference between an F250 and F350 SRW, the most important is listed greater (possible the same) GVWR and payload on the VIN sticker.

gvwr is 11400 on this one.
I had to change my weighted tags.
I had them at 9000 for my old one with a 8800gvwr.
I had to up to 12K WEIGHTED.
