Super singles seem like a good idea, but expensive and custom are 2 things that I like to avoid. Obviously 19.5" wheels are a way to maximize capacity but I need the ability to air down and drive in snow.

I'm considering 19.5" x 7.5" wheels that use a 265/R70 19.5 or 285/R70 19.5 tires. For example a Michelin XDE2+ or Hankook DH07. What are your thoughts and experience on running wider tires with an aggressive tread pattern on a 350/3500 SRW w a 3500 lb loaded, pop-up TC?

19.5s can be ok in snow. Some are even Winter tires.

I would go with 4080 rated 18s instead that can be aired down. I’m assuming you are talking about SRW.

Now you’re down to a popup TC and wanting to use 19.5s under it?

Me no understand.

Yes SRW. Can any 19.5's be aired down? 4080 lbs would allow plenty of leeway on the rear axle.

No, they have a different type of bead.

Just how much gear are you expecting to bring along with your pop up TC???

A 350 series truck will likely be more than adequate with its standard trim.

Planning on a Hallmark flatbed w lots of water capacity, and truck boxes so I can have plenty of useless stuff! The Hallmarks are quite a bit heavier than folks think when they read pop-up. Also figuring on towing a boat w 350 lbs tongue weight or utility trailer at times.

One thing that some find is that flatbeds can weigh more than pickup beds ... something to consider. Personally, if I was going popup, I’d go simple. The bed area would be virtually the same and you aren’t going to have that much of a difference. Also, you could look at the newer Project M model from 4 wheel campers which is a completely different style.

Sure is interesting the different "ideal" set ups for everyone. Personally, I really like a dry bath rig; but others see the perfect rig as a pop up with almost no fresh or gray tank capacity.

Glad there's something for everyone... And we don't have to agree. Only my wife and I have to agree.
