I really won't know were I am at until I weigh everything on a truck scale. Anyone in the forum pulling a Designer 31RLTS with a F250 Super Duty or GM 2500HD?

I pull an 04 designer 31 rls with an 02 2500hd. Gvw is 9500. I put air bags on because hitch weight was over 2400lbs loaded. It squatted the rear a bit, thats why i got the bags. My truck has the 8.1 allison and is rated at 12k towing. My 5ver weighs about 12.5k loaded. Handles the weight great. You will be more fine with f250 ps. Air bags may be needed is all.
