5th wheel and Superduty Gas TV

Anybody towing an Eagle 5th Wheel with an F250 gasser? I've got a '14 F250 4x4 Lariat Crew Cab. We are considering a few Eagle models but really like the 339FLQS. By my math, I will be within my trucks limits as we never pack much and never carry water in any tanks, etc. Mostly just weekend trips to places with full hookups. Just curious how the F250's handle these 5th wheels. I'll be trading in a Whitehawk 33bhbs.

I pull an Eagle 33.5BHLT that's a little shorter and about 1k less UVW. The truck (F250) should not be an issue. I know little of the new gas I still use an old 7.3 but if the motors got the torque it shouldn't be an issue. I have no issues at all with my F250. I did add air bags to help the rear sag loaded.

I don't know if this is an apples to apples comparison but I used to pull my 31'/ 10K loaded Eagle Lite with an 02 F250 2wd extended cab. It used a 4 speed auto 2 valve/ V10 gas engine. And it got r' done. With that said, I prefer my new 6.7L diesel w/ 6 speed auto tranny.
