Congratulations. Glad to see you have a truck that matches the trailer. It should be a breeze to pull. Here is to lots of great trips with the new toy!

Big - yours is SRW?? That's awesome to find someone with same set up! Does your truck sag at all? Any problems with the camper? I'm doing my walk through on Saturday.

Yes it is SRW. We only towed it empty so far on its way home last Wednesday. It is an FX4 pkg with 20" tires. It towed better than our 2012 Keystone Avalanche. When we did our walk through we found only minor cosmetic things so far that the dealership is taking care of. Are you in NY? Where did you buy it from?

I live in Corinth Texas. We are buying ours in Sherman Texas. I was concerned about the pin weight for our truck.

We have a 375BHFS which has a similar weight to yours and after pulling it home (~300 miles) a couple of weeks ago and on our first camping trip last weekend with our 2012 F350 SRW, we are joining the dually club. The truck has plenty of power to pull it, but boy did you know it was back there. My husband drove bringing it home and I drove to go camping and we both feel like a dually will be a better, more stable option. That said, I know there are people who have similar size/weight units who pull with SRW 350/3500 and even 250/2500 pickups and say they have no problems. For us, we decided the weight was too much for our SRW.

BigBertha, when you look at your 5th wheel plate, how far would you guess it is from the top of the plate to the top edge of the box? I just installed a B&W Companion manual slider and the top of the plate is only about 3" from the top of the box. This seems a little high, but I haven't hooked up to my camper yet. I have the exact same truck as you. Thanks.

Dave

Dave we have the factory fifth wheel package with the pucks. We have the adapter frame to to the hitch on top of which is about 3 inches higher than the rails. I think it more than 3 inches from the top of the bed rails but the camper tows level where our Avalanche was nose high. I hope that answered your question.
