The guys here usually have a history of some sort with this stuff and can provide some helpful advice.
1. What is the weight capacity rating on your trailer?
2. Most states won't allow more than 26,000 gross combined weight on a 250.
3. More than likely, you're either going to have to keep the weight to 26,000 gross or get at least an F-350 or bigger.
I was close to 30,000 a few times with my F-350 and it wasn't fun, that' why I use the Pete now instead, much safer.
