Old thread but wanted to add my $0.02 worth. When we started looking at 5th wheels in January '17, I thought our '09 F250 would handle anything. Then I really started looking. My sweetheart (Joy) got set on a 39-41 foot 5r (Montana or Solitude). She found one in Mississippi at a good price. Off she wanted to go. I put the brakes on that trip after looking closely at pin weights. Using the guide at https://www.fleet.ford.com/resources...9RVTTguide.pdf the max cargo weight was ~1,700#. Way to low to handle a 3,000 pin weight. I gave her the bad news that we would "need a bigger boat"!! We spent a month finding the Ram 3500 4x4 DRW Cummins w/Aisin. Now our margins are considerable pulling the 3791RD Montana.
