6.0 Towing Capacity?

Any ideas what the maximum goose neck load would be for a 04 CC SWB 6.0? I'm thinking about buying a goose neck, but need to narrow down the max load of my truck.

Thanks!

Your truck should be rated for a gooseneck of just over 16,000 lbs.

Is that all?!? Dang, I just went from a 20 footer to a 30 footer! Now I just have to find a place in Middle GA that sells used trailers so that I don't break the bank...

You are also a dually! The 16K is what will be legal for the 250. I wouldn't say that you can't safely tow more than that because my SRW 350 is very comfortable with 16-17K in tow. The only problem is legal issues if you get stopped by a DOT cop.

I'm looking for an enclosed cargo goose neck to move my household goods next year...if the USAF lets me leave Georgia. I figure I'll need a 25 footer to move the house. A good friend of mine just loaded up his house into a 35 footer and it totalled out at 14,000lbs including the trailer. I think he sat on the scales at 22,000 and is driving an 04 F-350 dually.
