I just bought this yesterday

http://aluminum-trailer-company.ebiz...izAutos&pid=15

First time towing with the new F350PSD.....
The truck rides better loaded w weight than unloaded by far
no more bouncing either.
I noticed the 6.0 likes to drop in gear on hills quite a bit
while Im crusin at 75...I am assuming its the stroke of the motor
being slightly too small maybe?...We managed about 12.5 MPG
while towing the empty trailer which I think weighs around 7000 lbs
and will come in around 12K lbs loaded up with car and goods.
Handling was great,didnt even know the thing was back there.
Time for a tow chip and 100 gallon gas tank now

peace

Not quite on the same scale as the rest of you, but then my lil' Ranger is a bit smaller than what you are pulling with, too...

I picked up a new bed for my buddy's Model A truck last week, had to borrow a trailer because I couldn't manage to come up with the correct number (2) of tires and rims for mine.

This is my race car and trailer setup that I pull in the summer:




This is my 6x10 CAM Superline 12K GVW dump trailer that I pull loaded once a week.

Here's the Jeep i picked up last week. A little time, and it runs and drives for $155! Couldn't get a trailer, so we were able to get a dolly for free. Work with what I can get my hands on for now, until I find a bigger trailer.

See my avatar or gallery... About 24-25k GCW which varies based on how much fuel and water are in the boat.

Off topic (sorry!) but how do you like the stacks with the 460? What do they sound like?
