Upgraded from a '12 308RETS to '13 365BHS and absolutely loving the extra room so far. Kids especially love the LED lights under the awning that we didn't even know was coming. We got her loaded with all the options available.....leveling system, tinted windows, fireplace, slide toppers. Working on getting all my mods finished and will post more pictures including interior. Can't wait to get to use her.

Nice! Can you elaborate about the "5000# supersprings"? I would guess that a stock F250 would be a bit overloaded if you fill the 365 with all the "goodies" we tend to collect.

That thing is BIGGER than my stick house but very, very nice looking 5'er. I love the LED lights under the awning.

My guess is the 5000# super springs are Air Lift Load Leveler 5000 air bags. As a rear suspension enhancement, sometimes air bags are referred to as super springs. Of course, it could be a lot of different things, there's a bunch of different ones on the market today. RedHorse, you would be correct, that's quite a load on the F-250 but I'm sure it's up to the task especially with the diesel [it's a monster, I know because I have one]. BTW, that is a beautiful 5th wheel.

Thanks TC,
I'm sure the 6.7 has enough "umph" to do the job but wondering about the load on the rear axle. I'm guessing the supersprings help hold the bed off the rear axle. Hope our OP will check in with an update.
