    Can I tow this?

    will a ford f250 pull a 395RW? Help we are new at fifth wheeling. We have had a motorhome and switched. We need to know the bet way to haul our toy hauler
    Thanks

    Hey there Mime & Honey,
    That model has a max GVWR of 18000 lbs. You'll be way over the legal limit. Try visiting the Trailer Life website http://www.trailerlife.com/output.cfm?id=42175
    detailed towing guides.

    If you look at the GVWR of 18K and take 15% and 20% your pin weight can be anywhere between 2700 and 3600#. I am not the weight police by any means but that would be way over weight for my 2006 F250. The F350 has about the same towing capability but can handle more in the bed. If I had to purchase a new truck I would look at nothing less than a F350 but would go to a F450 if you can.

    My BH has a max of 14800. We travel full time and I am at the max my truck can pull. I don't have any additions on it yet.
    Travel safe & may God bless
