I can't wait for my first trip with this truck. With a 31,100 lb tow rating I probably won't even feel the 5er behind me.

You will feel it, but you will be safely in control.

Good looking truck!
The Duramax/Allison is a tough combo to beat, but after owning 2 I'm a bit parshall.
Hook up, set exhaust brake, shift to tow/haul & set cruise, your good to go all day.

Weekend warrior not full timer

I hate to add to the SRW or DRW, but thought I wold give you my weights from CAT Scale.

My truck is 2017 F350 SRW Diesel crew cab 6 3/4 ft bed 4x4 11500#GVW hitch in Reese manual slider.

Trailer is 2017 Montana High country
Specs listed
Dry Wt. 11,180#
Pay load 3,065#
GVWR 14,254#
Pin 2,245#

I wanted to stay under the 26,000# non commercial CDL limit.

Did CAT scale with myself and wife some gear and 1/2 tank diesel.
Trailer had 2 full propane tanks no black grey or fresh water in tanks. Food and general stuff in trailer and belly storage loaded with lots of stuff and 4 totes of hoses and other stuff.

Pick up only

Steer axle 5020#
Drive axle 3,440#
Total 8,460

Pickup with Trailer
Steer axle 5,160#
Drive axle 6,129#
Trailer Axle 9,500#
Gross Weight 20,789#

I am for sure a little heavier now I work hard to manage weight to stay way under max. I use a haul gauge between CAT scale checks itís not perfect but closer than I thought it would be.

If we were full time DRW would be my choice but until then I will stay with my current choice for daily driver and part time tow vehicle.

Thanks to all who contribute to these forms, I learned so much on weights, towing and what accessories to buy here before I purchased our trailer and pickup. Itís been 2 1/2 years and wish I had more time to use the trailer, but retirement is coming.
