You might need to watch your weights a bit more if towing a fifth wheel with a 250/2500. I imagine it would limit your ability to carry passengers and cargo in the truck as the weight limits on the truck are less than a 1 ton. Other than that i cant see any reason why you wouldnt do it if you can keep it within the figures

30.5 BHLT dry 9600 towed by a F250 super duty (with air bags) and not an issue one even in winds or mountains. Real world use no speculations .....
The HT is advertised as light weight half ton tow-able

Why can't a 5w hitch be adjusted to accommodate the height? 5w hitch and pin box have adjustments.

"Half Ton", designed to be towed by todays half ton pick up trucks. Lighter and lower in profile.

I would be interested to know where you heard this and what the reason was for the statement.

I would much sooner say you cannot tow it with many half tons, then I would with 3/4 tons....

I pull my 2015 Eagle HT 29.5 BHDS with a Ram 3500 and I couldn't imagine pulling it with a half ton truck.
