If you are going by the sticker on the camper you are in for a shock. Those are notoriously low by 500- or more pounds. I would suggest going to a CAT Scale and weighing the rig then looking at the load rating of your tires

You're already over your max, but you don't know it. What does your set-up consist of ?

So the dry weight is not correct? They should not be doing that

All of the TC weight will be on rear axle. So it is more like 3640x 2= 7280-rear axle weight of empty truck. This will be your available payload.
Is truck gas or diesel?
If gas you should be ok once you upgrade tires. You can get LR129 tires rated at 4080 (x2= 8160#).

Is the 3640 lb per tire for a single or dual application.
Dual application for a DRW truck is the smaller capacity.

Your '06 F350 DRW probably has a 9000 RAWR. That year model trucks rear axle may weigh in the 3400-3500 lbs range which leaves the truck with around 5500 lbs for a in the bed payload.
