5th wheeler help/advice

Can someone decipher the SD spec sheet for me?

I have an 05 350 CC srw 4x4 LB 18" tires.

What kind of weight can I tow as a 5th wheeler?

What would be the best hitch system as I do not have one in the truck now.

Any other tips and advice?

IIRC, You should be able to tow about 17,000 lbs legaly. MANY have towed more than that.

Look at this link - It is from Ford.
Look under pages 16-21, click on "F250/F350 Super Duty Pickups" - Then cross-reference to 5th wheel towing.

I have a Reese 15K 5th wheel hitch. It's been working very well for me.
