The only experience I had with a 2500 was a 97, rated 10500 towing, and we had a 9600GVW fifth wheel that we never loaded terribly heavy. I was probably right at or maybe a little over the payload of that truck and I hated the canoe feeling ride. I had a dually before the 2500 and I went back to a dually while we still had that same 9600 GVW fiver and The improvement was night and day. I would never consider getting even close to the payload of a 2500 with a fifth wheel again. Craig

Thought I might provide an update for those keeping score at home. The F-250 is gone and I am now in an F-350 4X4 DRW. Yes, I am now one of those guys!! We're keeping the Reflection 367 and there is zero doubts on the rig trailer combo. Thanks to all who contributed can't tell you how much it helped. I will now go lick my wounds after trading a 2021 for a 2021.Ouch!

Thanks for posting your solution! That is the proper tool, for the original FW you wanted. If you would have gotten a lesser FW, to better fit the 250, it may have been more costly, upgrading the entire rig, a year or so later.

Congrats, hope you enjoy complete new rig!

Good choice.
Fords DRW RAWR is 9900 lbs vs 6230 lbs with the F250. Huge payload differences.

Great truck. Only down side is the hit in the savings account.

That is great! I always like it when people come to the forum and ask for advice then receive it and act. Your head isn't going to hurt anymore with that capable truck. Pleasant towing.

You’ll feel a lot better when you tow with the DRW.
