06 sd cc 6.0 short bed vs 15.5k 5er

looking at a cedar creek 5er 15.5 gvw. I'm not sure if my f250 will be up to the job. truck is about 8k loaded with fuel kiddies and the missus.pin weight roughly is about 2800 that puts me over gvw of truck. would i be better off with a 350? Ive seen plenty of big 5ers bbeing pulled by 350 srw's. I really trying not to go into a dually. If any one has some experience with this type of combo let me know. I could use the help

I pull a 07 Weekend Warrior CR 45' (custom Langtry) with my 09 F350 CC LB SRW 4X4. I weighed at Cat Scale connected to my truck completely empty (no fuel, water, propane, or any of our gear, toys, etc. ) and it the total axle was 22,680. I have estimated when loaded with gear, fluids, food and toys to be +\- 18K.

I have not had a problem. What is the 5th wheel rating for your 250?

Sorry for the double post. I'm on my iPhone in the barn.

I'll switch to the iPad after I feed the horses.

5er vs f250

actual vehicle weight 8000
pin weight est at 2800 (14000 est trl weight x .20)
gvw is now 10800 (too heavy)
combined weight is 24800 also too heavy
i think im going to hit the scales and double check all the weights
