    Thanks so much for the reply. I do have the high capacity tow package. That also helps on the axle ratings. So it sounds like I have no problems pulling the 5er. I now have Timbrens on the truck. Do they serve the same purpose as airbags? My guess is airbags would provide a smoother ride. Of the choices you mentioned which is the best option for reliability and maintenance, air bags, StableLoads, or a SuperSpring. If it is airbags what have you seen as the best one? On board compressor ?

    I wanted to see if I could get your thoughts on you my situation and not have to listen to all of the buy a 350 dually comments. I already have a 2018 F250 diesel with the towing package on it. I just upgraded and ordered a Grand Design Solitude 310gk 5er. So here are the numbers on paper

    Truck Payload: 2162 lbs Faxle - 5200 lbs, Raxle - 6340 lbs
    5er: GVWR - 15,000 lbs, UVW - 12,100 lbs. I know we will never load it to max weight

    As I understand it my towing package upgraded my rear end to a 350 but I am short on helper spring. I do not know if the sticker on the door (Raxle - 6340) reflects the upgraded rear axle. I know about the derated 10,000 number so I know I can tow way more than that. My concern is am I exceeding my rear axle capacity? I see many on the forums are towing more than I am so I guess it is it fair to say I am ok? I do not worry about the legal discussion.
    Thanks for any thoughts you can provide.
