Towing ours with an F350. I know a Louisville Truck plant vehicle engineer where the F series is built. He specified the F350 for my 38FLFS.

Agree...air bag will only fix sag...not tow capacity and pin weight.

Its a big decision but we have researched till we are blue in the face. The solution we have come up with is to add a leaf spring here at a custom shop. It will take it to the one ton category and actually add 1800lbs to he capacity. We are also going to add a set of timbrens that replace the factory bump stops and they have great reviews. We got the idea from the ford dealership because a worker there did it to haul his 43ft toy hauler. Now when it comes to getting blown around I'm sure that it will not be as nice as the DRW but that truck will come in a few years. Need to pay this bad boy off first! Lol

Are the tires and rims up to the weight?

Winston I pulled a 33 ft Designer for several years with a F250 that I purchased new with a helper leaf spring with no issues . Last year I purchased a Pinnacle REQS 36 so I also upgraded to a f350 long box dually. I put on Firestone air bags that IMO are great . I should have done it with my old 250 really helps I also installed a wireless compressor to control the bags . Air bags not only correct the sag IMO they help the stability.
