3,000 pounds DRY on an F250? Not wise.

There's a reason that these campers are nicknamed "Leakwood". I had a 2001 8.5S. Surely check for water damage.

My friend had the non slide version of that camper on his drw duramax, no way I would put that on a 2500... More to that, I bet it weighed an extra 1000lbs with all the water it had absorbed hahaha

The video that Jaycocreek linked is a good one, I have the same truck as that guy, different camper, but he does good videos. If you go to some of his other videos, he rebuilds his camper, removes the slide and does a pretty good job of it. I would say from all of the videos I have seen from this guy he probably takes as good care of his camper as anyone and he had hell-a-problems with water intrusion. Check out your camper really good around the slide. I would watch as many of this kind of video as possible before going out to look at any camper

As others have noted, it’s probably too big for your 2500, but I’m not saying it isn’t possible to drive around with it. Unless you put it on a scale wet with gear, you really don’t know how much the total weight will be.

I’d also continue looking unless you want to trade for a DRW.
