Wow. I would have thought the opposite. Manuals are so much simpler, I thought they would be stronger. I've got a MT and 4.10 diff.

On a related note. Is monitoring transmission temp a concern with MT, or is that just an AT thing?

I'd say automatic only.

Agree, mine was automatic and I had an after market gauge installed.

-GVWR=10,000
-GAWR=4400 (f)/7400 (r)

CAT scale (3 passengers, full tank, 150-200# in the bed) was 4040/3560 (f/r)

So-There's no way I could come close to my 7400 rear GAWR without drastically exceeding the 10,000 GVWR. (I know, I know..I'm spending a lot of GVWR on the CC and LB).Looks like I've got about 2400 lbs max capacity to stay within GVWR. That being said-Even a 40 ft 5er is within that weight, right?

My wife and I have a bug for a 5er, but I don't want to buy more than my truck can handle.
I am a little surprised your capacity is that low (2400lbs) with an F350 dually. What does your door sticker say? A 40ft 5er could easily have a pin weight of 3000-3500lbs, well above you 2400lb rating.

Ok. We're about to pull the trigger on a 5er that's posted hitch weight is 2060. My truck (97 F350 CrewCab long bed) weighs 7600 with four passengers/both fuel tanks full. GVWR is 10k. You think we're ok?

Oops. Sorry. Missed you post. Door sticker says 10000. I'm positive. It went up to 11,400 in 99, and 12,600 soon afterward. Had no idea when I bought it we'd be considering a 5er

For anyone following-

1) I mis spoke. The 98-03 have an 11,200 GVWR (not 11,400 or 11,600

2) in spite of the RV sales guy insisting my 97 CCLB can tow that 41 footer, I've bought a 2001 instead. That gives us enough weight for the whole fam to be in the truck.
