Gross combined is not legislated here in BC. Only restriction on trailer weight is based on the horsepower output of your engine.

Although, I thought I read somewhere once that 30% of the trailer weight must be on the traction tires. Haven't found that in righting though...

the brakes are also bigger on the 3500 over the 2500

You are only allowed so much tongue weight though
And dot will check it But the 30% thing could be 5th wheel trailer
First I've ever heard of horsepower regulating weight alowable
Considering big rigs are only about 400 horse average
But with all the other regulations that make no sense could see it

what can I say...

Wading through all the fine detailed points as to what it takes to tow a trailer will make your head spin....
the weight thing Probably doesn't apply to small vehicles anyway...

Weight to horsepower

7.21 A person must not, without an overload permit, drive or operate on a highway a combination of vehicles unless the gross vehicle weight to the manufacturer's rated horsepower of the towing vehicle bears a relationship of not more than 150 kg to one horsepower.

Dually time for sure and the a 19.5 or a 22.5 wheel conversion so your tires will never overload and wear out and rip up like u rip tires

And then some folding jacks on the camper to go around wheel wells too..... Or shit just get a new camper while your at it

Make sure you do the math, I didn't.

I bought a dually and after I refigured everything the dually isn't rated for anymore that my single wheel.

My dually is more stable but cant pack anymore or tow anymore that my single wheel crew cab.

Duallys a 99 F-350- and single wheel is a 02 F-350.

Only difference on a Ford between the 250 and the 350 is a block in the rear springs.
Brakes and everythings the same.

are you saying your dually and SRW have near the same or the same GVWR that your payload never increased ?

are both diesel?
was there a change over between those years?

I did a search for a new dodge dually. What's interesting is there is not a single truck west if Toronto

Looks like I'll fix up mine for now and wait till next year
