F250 Gooseneck Towing Capacity

I was wondering what Ford lists as the towing capacity for a gooseneck trailer on a 2006 F250 Superduty with the 6.0 Diesel.

I'm just looking for a single number, I know I'll have to take tongue weight, etc. into account later. For example, the rating on the truck for weight carrying is 6,000 lb and weight distributing 12,500 lb but I can't find a number for a gooseneck.

The GCWR is listed at 23,000lbs. My truck weighs 8,000lbs or so so that leaves 15,000lbs.

Here's a link to the Ford Fleet site for owners manuals:

https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenan...ls/default.asp

Just pick the correct vehicle from the drop-down menus and you can download a copy of the manual.
