I'm sure it's about the SRW.

The only differences between a F250 and a F350 SRW is the 250 uses a 35 spline axle and the 350 uses a 37 spline, the housing is the same. Taller rear axle spring spacers and overload springs on the 350.

Brakes often overlooked may be bigger or have more aggressive material on the 350

Has anyone ever had any damage to there trailers because of road conditions and possibly speed related accidents. Back to my original question has anyone ever kept track of how many miles they put on there trailer. How much road abuse can they actually take. Good thing for the More ride suspension on the Jaycos.

Nope same brakes on the SRW, the DRW is completely different braking system.

I run between 60 and 65 but mostly at 62 which seems to be the "sweet spot" on my Ram dually. A 41' RV behind needs to be kept in mind.

Its all about arriving safely at your destination with your family safely. So if it takes a little longer with the trailer, so be it. Camping is suppose to be fun. No one wants to ruin there vacation with damage to there camper or worse an accident. After reading all these posts I'm going to start slowing down while towing.

Seems in our TV that 60-65 is the max for the power band. Goes without saying you can't use cruise control. I know I'd get much better mileage at 55 but just can't do it.

Not to drift too far off topic, but I just saw a '13 F450 Platinum dually with 14k miles on its diesel power plant. As usual, the dealership is asking not much less than a new one could be bought for, but I may talk them into a deal.
