I have a 2001 V10 which I thought could tow anything till I bought our 28' fifth wheel now I'm wanting a diesel. The 2008 Ford F-250, 350 and 450 Super Dutys are heavy duty pickup trucks. Depending on the configuration of their cabs, the Ford Super Duty trucks can hold between two and five people. A few weekends ago I went over a couple 8% grades and it was all I could do to maintain 35 mph wound tight at 4500 rpm.

The F350 has a 5,720 pound payload capacity and an 18,700 pound towing capacity. Good to know, I currently tow a 33' travel trailer not sure of the weight with no problems.

Towed my 11k fiver with my 2000 which is lower rated than the 2008 without any problems. Sold that unit for a 16000 pound fiver and hauled it over the mountains to its permanent parking spot without a hitch. I would love to get a 2008 - 2009 then I would be wintering down south. The F250 has a 3,170 pound payload capacity and a 12,500 pound towing capacity. Compare Cars Select cars that interest you and see a side-by-side comparison.
