F250/350 pin weight question

I had a salesman suggest that the payload (pin weight capacity in my case) for a F250 with the camper package would be essentially the same as a F350, engine/4x4/crew cab being the same in both cases.

I can't find anything in the brochure that I downloaded that can confirm this.

What would be the pin weight max for each?

Thanks for the help.

That's incorrect....the 350 will be able to LEGALLY carry around 1-1300 lbs more weight. If you have a question opt for the 350.

All you need to do is subtract curb weight from GVWR and it'll tell you what your pin weight will be, i.e., if you have a curb weight (vehicle + fluids) of 7850 lbs and a GVWR of 10,000 lbs your pin weight would be 2150 lbs. However, any additional payload (passengers, cargo, etc.) will take away from that weight. I agree with Lrdchaos - opt for the F350.

thanks for the help. I keep looking for ways to make a F250 work and I keep coming back to an F350.

I have been told by a Ford Dealer that the only difference between the 250 and 350 is one extra leaf spring, and the badging. Can anyone confirm this? If so, I will be adding a leaf spring to my 250.

All else being equal, the difference in price (online at least) is less than a grand from the 250 to the 350. Go one ton.

There is that one extra leaf that contacts the bumpers on the frame, and the blocks between the axle and springs are 2 inches taller on the 350. The older (11's and maybe early 12's) trucks used hydroboost brakes on the 350, but I think they both use the same braking system now.

The F350 has 2 more splines on the axle shafts ( 37 vs 35) and the axle shaft itself is slight larger in diameter. As mention you get the extra leaf spring and in 2011 the Hydroboost Brakes. (the duallys still get the Hydroboost, but the SRW all get the Vacuum boost since 2012).

I don't know about the 2013 models, but the Ford technical specifications listed for my 2012 F350 SRW with camper pkge @ 11,500 GVRW shows a listing of Max Payload Weight Ratings (lbs) of 3,790 lbs this is for a 4x4 Crew Cab 172" wheelbase. The rating for a F250 4x4 SRW Crew cab 10,000 GVWR with 172" wheel base is 3170 lbs. If you are comparing F250 to 350 for towing a 5th wheel as per the Ford specifications there is only a 500 lb higher Max Loaded 5TH WHEEL Trailer weight difference between the two models. For me and others IM sure the 350 is the best option, if you tow, or load a heavy camper go with the 350. This information I listed is from the 2012 Super Duty Ford truck brochure that your salesman should be able to provide for the 2013 models.
