Your analysis is just about like mine and it looks like you have plenty of truck. I have no first hand experience, but everything I have heard about the 7.3 PSD is positive. I was talking to a guy who is doing a conversion of an Econoline van to a dually that has the 7.3 PSD and he says it is a monster.

My truck had a class IV receiver; I second your thought on a replacing your receiver.

I figured everything conservatively and chose to round up rather than down. I did not find much difference in price by going up one step. I would think you'll want the 14K for your tongue weight.

I have heard the Reese dual-cam and blue-ox work quite well. As far as the HA and PP go, my personal choice was to invest that money in the trailer suspension itself and a tire pressure monitoring system.

I already owned the 12K equalizer when we got our 338RLTS. The specs call for the 14K but we have had zero issues with the 12K so no need to upgrade.

I have a trunion style reese dual cam hitch and love the way it tows. I towed twice with just the WD bars (RV dealer didn't order the dual cam up front). Night and day difference w/ the cams installed.

my hitch is the 6 year old "old" style that had issues that have since been resolved by Cequent (reese parent co.)
- Trunion bars contacted threads on hitch ball during jack knife turns damaging my hitch head. Cequent mailed me a new design hitch head (free).
- Cam bars were not tucked under the frame enough causing my snap up braket and cam bar to bend. I had adjusted my bar tension WAY to high. Cequent sent new parts free. New design cams eliminated this problem.
