Have a question: If both the 350 and 450 have the same GVWR of 14000 Lbs and the 450 is a heavier truck, don't know by how much, but doesn't it stand to reason that the 350 can carry more pin weight, thus a bigger Fifthwheel??

If you go by GVWR the F350 has a little more payload. If you go by axle rating the F450 front axle is rated about 400 lbs more than the front axle of the f350 which about accounts for the weight difference. The two wheel drive F350 the highest rear axle rating and has the highest payload rating.

This is payload sticker on my 20 F350, srw, 4X4 diesel which I picked up yesterday.

On edit, can't get the picture to download. The payload is 4562.

For future, or now if you like, go to this site and upload your picture. Then simply copy the generated code and paste it in the post you are writing..... no need to use any of the forum tools.

SCREW the 14k, the 450 will handle and carry more weight than the 350 plain and simple!

The F450 is a nicely upgraded 1 ton but based on axle rating the 350 can carry more ..... tire rating? The 350 puts more rubber in contact with the road so I'm not sure who wins there? 450 win on brakes. I think the frame is identical.

What is the MAX carrying capacity of the 450's rear tires compared to the 350's?

Quit looking at "RATINGS" and look at reality.

Well, if it means anything, the overall lifetime average mpg on my 2016 is 10.6. The TC is on the truck about 98% of the time. Sometimes it’s higher when the truck isn’t working hard, sometimes it’s lower when it’s in regen and/or working hard. Best and worst mpg numbers are interesting to observe, but overall average mpg is what I keep track of. I also keep track of the miles between regens.

On the interstate we’re usually doing 65-70 mph (~2500 rpm). It can do that all day, and the ride is great, the cab is quiet, and the engine never sounds like it’s wound too high.

Interesting info, thanks. That's not bad for carrying such a large camper.
