Picked myself up a new trailer.

Today I drove down to all pro trailer superstore in PA. Great guys down there. I picked up a Big Tex 20ph. It's a pretty beefy trailer for a single wheel pickup to pull off the bumper. I have a 12' f250 ccsb lariat 6.7 and a 12 f350 scsb xlt with the 6.2 gas motor (my work truck). My deleted 6.7 on the 400 mile round trip averaged 18.5 mpg with and without the trailer. The trailer has a gvw of 20,000lbs and the trailer itself weights 5500lbs, so it has a payload of est 14,500lbs on the deck. It looks like it can handle more then this. The trailer will really be pulled by my caterpillar powered six wheel freightliner dump. I am curious to compare my f350 gas to my 250 diesel to see how the 350 gasser handles it empty.

Unless the weight is just ridiculous, WIND RESISTANCE is the key. Put a big empty box trailer behind you and see what happens to your mileage.

I agree Lewis, an empty flat bed doesn't give us 'real' numbers

I know what happens to it. I have a 24ft triton v nose and it goes down to like 12mpg. I know the trailer was empty. It's a tag along deck over made to go behind my six wheel freightliner dump. I didn't want to have to drive my dump for an eight hour road trip. So I figured I would just bring it home on the powerstroke. Cause it's way more comfortable to have to drive and obviously it got decent mileage with the trailer EMPTY. So it was a no brainer. The question I was asking is do you think with this trailer my f250 would be able to move my bobcat t320. I wouldn't try it with my excavator or you think 15klbs off the bumper of the f250 is pushing it? That's what I am hauling it with 99% of the time.

I regularly pull a 7,000+# Tucker snow cat on a tandem srw trailer behind a 2007 2500 Duramax on my job. It does just fine, but I don't think would work with another 4-5,000# added on. The Bobcat is a go; the excavator not so much...

My bobcat is a t320. So it's the big frame and it weighs 10,500lbs. So I don't know if the powerstroke can safely move the bobcat.

My brother in law tows a T320 on a triple axle 32' goose neck with an 05 F350 single rear wheel I dont know if that helps you at all lol. and from the look of the squat with it empty I would say you would definitely need air bags

The t320 I found when I looked them up was spec'ed at 5,500. That's what I based my opinion on. I wouldn't pull your t320 with a 250.
