Difference it payload

I have a F250 Powerstroke... I want to know what if any is the difference in the rear supention and Drivetrain from the F250 and the 350. I know that its 500 lbs, But I have a camper that over loads a 350 by 800lbs. do you think it would be wise of me to put that camper on my 250 with over loads???

I would suggest an air helper spring to keep the truck level. As far as the truck being up to the task, no problems.

I tow a 35ft 5th wheel that wieghts about 12 to 13,000 lbs. My 97 250 handles it fine here in western colorado. The truck sits fine and hadles the rought roads great. You shouldn't have any problems with a 350. I would check and see if you have a cracked or a broken spring

My 350 is rated at a GVW of 11,400 lbs. Empty it weighs almost 8300 lbs. A 3,000 lb slide in camper and a few passengers and I would definitely be overweight. Currently it is only tagged for 10,000 lbs so anything more than 1500 lbs and I'm legally overweight.
