Seismic 355W TV Question

Trying to get some feedback from fellow owners in regards to what your all using out there for TV. We are looking at buying a Seismic 355W with UVW 13010 and max GVW of 17,500. My 2011 F250 with 6.7 power stroke will more than pull it, it's just the suspension and SRW has me thinking of upgrading. Been looking at Duallies but cost of ownership and drivability in congested areas we go has me leaning towards an F350 or 3500 SRW diesel. Millions of threads out there but noticed both Ford and GM increased the 2017 model SRW towing capacity for 5th wheel towing. Both are rated at 17,000 max. Was hoping one of you all are towing a 14-17k fiver with SRW and could provide your feedback. Thanks in advance.

I have a '16 355W and tow it with a '13 F250. Bought the trailer last April and will have well over 10k miles towing after our trip next week to Nevada. My truck tows it well, and I have not had any issues.
I do have air bags as the truck will sag a bit. I use less air in the bags than I did when I had a 28' BP. I usually put around 40psi in the bags to raise it just off the overload spring.

I have a '12 F350 SRW that I pull our '17 355w with. I have Firestone air bags that I run 70psi; this gives the rear end about 1 5/8" squat. I also installed the Hellwig big wig rear stabilizer. It pulls down the road nicely.
