Sounds like a pretty sweet setup. Can't wait for pictures and your review of the truck and camper setup.

Upgrade your brakes since your going with an F350, both caliper and rotor's. I would go with drilled and slotted with ebc yellow's.

That is a lot of weight to try and stop.

Whats the mileage on the F350... I have a 2011 same engine.. Two of my friends with similar year models had the Bosh CP4 fuel pump grenade and take out the engine. $16,000 repair to the motors. I was at 120,000 they were close to 130K miles. So I spent $2700 to replace the fuel pump before failure. Do a search on Bosch CP4 fuel pump failure. Other than that one issue the truck is awesome and I would not trade it for another truck. The issue with the pump is that it was designed for European Diesel which has a higher concentration of lubricity agent than US ULSD Diesel contains. The pump uses the fuel to lube and cool itself. US Diesel causes premature wear and when the pump goes it trhows metal shards into the injectors killing the engine. I now add a lubricating additive with each fill up to prevent the new pum from failing.

Drilled and slotted help a lot on hard braking from 130 to 80 mph.
Below those speeds they are just waste of materials.

Just wondering why those speeds matter, and have you considered that the braking force and heat generated to stop 14k is a lot more than a sports car?

If the OP had gotten a 450 I wouldn't mention that. The 350 brakes are one of the weak points if you ask me. I just redid the rears and front on mine, new calipers/rotors/pads/flex line. At a minimum I would suggest upgrading the front brakes to a bigger caliper with that much weight.
