Hi Bill,
I'm planning on doing the same thing with my '08 350 4x4 SRW. I'm looking at 32-36ft toyhaulers. I don't know it the bed height will be a problem, I've read on some of the rv forums where folks flip the axles on their trailer to aid in the height issue.

I'll have to let you know, when I get the trailer. Do the same if you get yours first, okay?

Cheers,
Leslie

Hi guys! I just got my 08 F-350 srw 4x4, and finally got enough miles on it to pull. I have a 32' fifth wheel and I have no problems with the height. The camper is stock height from the factory.

Hi all,

Thanks Husker for alieviating my fears!! I now just wish I could find the perfect toy hauler. I'm stuck between a Crossterrain tf34mk and a Cyclone 3210....sigh

What toy hauler did you get? I'm curious

Thanks again!

Cheers,
Leslie

Actually I have a Cardinal 5th wheel camper. I took the hitch out of my 06 F-250 and put it in my 08. The 350 sits higher but I don't have any problems. It sits level with the trailer on, whereas my 250 squatted down.

My trailer, a Carri-Lite, can be ordered with a "4x4 option" which puts a steel block between the axles and the frame.

I saw this on another forum. I think this will cure your ills for hauling with extra height.
