Towing and exhaust

I have a 2006 f350 dually, I use it to tow a fifth wheel toy hauler. The trailer weighs in around 14000 lbs, I am interested in replacing turbo back exhaust. I want to know if anyone is using a 5" system with a fifth wheel? Or exhaust recommendations by users that tow heavy trailers.

I have a diamond eye 5" turbo back straight pipe. I tow a 32' 5er and it is loud while accelerating but once up to speed it is fine.

Are there any clearance issues with a 5" system and a fifth wheel trailer?

Not understanding what you mean? Are you talking about stacks? My exhaust is in the factory location.

If your referring to bed sagging from the weight, you won't get a good answer. Different 5th wheels have different king pin weight.

My truck is still stock and I am starting to consider things to do and one of them is the turbo back exhaust. I also tow a 42 foot Toy Hauler and the Pin Weight is around 3000 pounds. I have air bags in the back, I got them installed when the truck was new since the purpose of the truck was to tow a heavy fifth wheel. The air bags keep the rear nice and level regardless of load so you could just add those to your truck along with the larger exhaust. Let us know what you end up with.
