F350 SRW - Curb Weight

So I've been looking for a loaded F350 SRW 4x4 176" for a new 5th wheel I'm looking at but I'm running into a payload problem.

According to the web the payload should be 4,440 lbs but what I'm find in reality is far off.




Example today I contacted a dealer, the F350 had almost all options but the payload was only 3,089. That is a a major loss of payload.




http://www.windowsticker.forddirect....w0Q1o8usgOM%3D

I'm planing on having a tong weight from the 5th wheeler of ~2,900, 2 adults and your normal cab items for traveling with a 5th wheel. Based on this the 3,098 is way to low. I would be over with just me and the 5th wheel.

So I'm here hoping that I can some input on what other F350 6.7 SRW 4x4 176" are seeing for their payload. If this is the norm I'm going to have to ditch the SRW and go DRW.

Thanks for any input. I look forward to see what others F350 SRW owners are seeing on their tags.

The published payload is the most basic truck with little or no options, as options are added your payload goes down, And depends on what engine it has. the 6.7 lowers payload considerably.

.... the F350 had almost all options but the payload was only 3,089....
Read the name of the list you are looking at. "Maximum payload" This is the absolute most you can get with the frame and suspension from a CC LWB F350. You have to deduct the weight of any and all options i.e. diesel motor (and all its trimmings) and every other option over a base XL truck. You said yourself the truck had "almost all options".

Just as an added note: Personally, I would have zero problems with a #3K tongue weight on the truck you have there. Your only a few hundred over.

Yep...you want papered payload then you're looking at a low optioned gasser. See my signature.

If you're buying this to tow a fifth wheel with, just get a dually and be done with it. Worth the peace of mind

Well, if we are giving advice now......just buy two trucks, one for a daily driver and one for a heavy hauler. Why not have two super dutys for twice the price. Let them eat cake, I say.

My truck ( see sig) has a payload of 3447. It's a loaded Lariat. If you're towing a 5er, you'll want the diesel. It may be a hit in the CCC, but IMO, it's worth it.

Im in the same boat. My Ram 3500 had a GVWR of 12,300. My new F350 GVWR is 11,500. I have tongue weight of 2400#. My new truck weights 11,440 when towing the 5th wheel. It’s gonna take a lot of supervision to stay legal. For some reason the F350 is considerably heavier than published data. In short the Ford truck does not equal the Ram truck in towing capability. Let’s hope we see more truck in the future F350.

I was expecting Ford to stop getting beat by the Ram when the 2017 came out. Nope, still 800# GVWR less. I would have been tempted to get the Ram in a SRW instead of my F450 - it would be within its limits on my fifth wheel, where the Ford was not. One test drive of the Ram settled that one for me though

Andy,

Take a look at the chart below... I suspect it contains more accurate and useful info. Make sure you also take a look at Note (2).

HTH,
Jim / crewzer

It would be hard for me to leave a SRW truck, Ford will change or lose sales, itís that simple. Iíd bet theyíll fix it.
Why would you have to buy a dually to tow a 12,000# 5th wheel?

The members who have replied are correct but there are a few other factors. Which model you get...I ordered the 11500lbs GVW model. With my options ordered, the ordered guide allowed that option. Otherwise it defaults to the 11400lb GVW. It is possible to buy a downrated model of 10000lb GVW for those that want to pay less in registration fees in some states. Then the options on the truck you ordered have a bearing on payload. But what you do, is take the truck with full fuel tank, and the passengers and things you want to carry in the truck and drive over a scale. I took my 11500lb GVW and did this and it was 7568lb and you subtract the 2 numbers and it gave me an actual payload of 3932lbs. It is a Lariat cclb gas. I hope this helps. BTW...the guide is just that...a guide not the law. Actual numbers is what is real.

Options are heavy.

See attached for the payload sticker on my 6.2 Lariat Value Package CCLB.
The diesel version of the same truck would lower the payload by about 750 pounds.
