I have a quick question I hope someone can help me with , my buddy has his 1ton f350,7.3, single cab with a steel flatbed and tool boxes he needs towed. All I have is a 18 ft car hauler trailer with 2, 3500 lb axles.Will my trailer handle his beast?

Mine weighs in at 8800 but I have extra stuff on it. I think it might be a bit much for the trailer.

I'm looking right at the brochure, the F250 GVWR goes anywhere from 9000-1000 with a SRW 4X4..so in theory since an F250 weighs the same as an F350 (essentially the same truck), it seems to me that legally an F250 does not have that much of payload, if what all these guys are saying with them weighing well over 8000lbs.
<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: wickedsprint</div><div class="ubbcode-body">If all these F250/350ss weigh over 8000lbs, how can they have a decent payload if the GVWRof an F250 is as low as 9000lbs for a 4X4? </div></div>
You misread something. The topic is about a "1 ton dually". So there are no F-250s listed above, and there are no F-350 SRWs listed above. All the F-350s with weights listed above are duallys (DRW). So the folks have been good about staying on topic. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] Until now. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]
'99 - '00 F-350 DRW had a GVWR of 11,200
'01 - '04 F-350 DRW had a GVWR of 11,500
'05-up PSD CrewCab 4x4 DRW has a GVWR of 13,000 pounds.
Your argument is valid for an F-250, and especially for the '99-'04 F-250 with only 8,800 pounds GVWR. My '99.5 F-250 CrewCab 4x2 PSD weighed about 7,000 pounds when new and empty before any mods. But the "normal unloaded" weight is around 8,000 pounds, including toolbox full of tools and extra fluids, spray-in bedliner, floor jack, big bottle jack, full tank of diesel, torque wrench and lugnut sockets and other stuff behind the back seat, me and Sweetheart and puppydog. So my max unused payload available for trailer hitch weight is about 800 pounds without exceeding the GVWR of my tow vehicle. So needless to say, I'm usually overloaded by a few hundred pounds when towing the 5er. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/blush.gif[/img]
My Sierra Blanca in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it a coupla years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.
