I hope that helps someone...
Those charts list GCWR (Maximum combination of truck and trailer your towings weight), and not GVWR (Maximum truck can weigh at any given time)
The F350 dually that I bought, per factory spec, has a GVW of 11,200 lbs. After taking into account the truck weight and dump box weight, I will have 3,100 lbs hauling capacity.
The truck that I just bought and am picking up this after noon is as follows....
2004 GMC 2500HD Reg Cab 4x4 6.0 Auto
Total Truck Weight...3,044....2,201....5,245
GVWR of Truck........4,670....6,084....9,200
Total Payload Cap....1,626....3,883....3,954
It has the payload I want, the price I want, and runs pretty darn good.
Pics to come later!
Duallys are wide but your trailer is wider. still.....So width shouldn't be a problem....I'd go dually because they are more stable pulling a trailer and can hold
alot of weight should you need to....The only drawback in our city is that you cant park a dual wheeled vehicle on a city street after midnoght or risk getting a tiicket.....I have both and prefer the dually given a choice....
THose 2500hd's are nice.
I got a 2002 2500hd reg cab 4x4 6.0 l and its just 3 pounds shy of having a 4000lb payload capasity.
Thats real good!
