If you look on the Ford website though and owners manual it says the f250 4x4 with 6.7 diesel can tow 5th wheels up to 15100 lbs. In my case 18.75% of the pin weight. The hitch weight of the 5th wheel we are looking at is 1800lbs which doesn't leave much wiggle room at all.(9600lb 5th wheel) loaded at 1000lbs we're at 1900lbs hitch weight. 'l

I have a 2001 F250, 7.3, 6 speed manual tranny and pulled this for 5 years.
4800 pounds tongue weight and grossed 31,800 pounds.  72'10" long Never felt overloaded and could top Mt. Eagle at 55 MPH in 4th. Pulled through 15-18 states and was never stopped or questioned.
I agree about the Lawyers.

4800 pounds hitch weight?  Or combined hitch weight and cargo including passengers?

2016 F 250---------------4800# extra above the weight of my F250.
4800 # is the 5th wheel tongue/hitch weight.
BTW Towing package on truck and loaded the distance from the front and rear fender to street level was the same.  28" IIRC.
I would not try that with a gas burner or most automatic transmissions, Allison being the exception.
