Thanks for sharing the payload. I anguished over the 250 vs 350 and glad I went with the larger payload for my needs. The 2016 f250 platinum only had 100 lb more payload than a 2016 f150 platinum. The 2017 350s are showing payloads between 2800-3100 on ford-trucks forum. Almost went with a 2500 Denali whose payload was around 2400.

Trucks on order eta early October.

Main reason for it being so close between the f150 and 250 is the Diesel engine weight.

Keep in mind, 440 HP and 925lbs torque, vs the wimpy Denali.

Just picked up my 2017 F250 Platinum with the Ultimate package as well. I absolutely love the way it drives. It has really surprised me as it is very similar to the 2015 F150 Platinum that I have been driving. I saw your notes THEPILL on the Ford Truck forum, didn't realize you had an Airstream as well.

Will be making the adjustments on the ProPride hitch over the next couple of days then head out for the Balloon Fiesta in NM. Was hoping to have my RetraxPro cover on it by the time I leave but just got a shipping notice this afternoon advising of a delay. I am so looking forward to driving this on the road with the Airstream attached. So far, very pleased though.

As far as payload goes, mine is a 2101 with the 6.7 Powerstroke Diesel and the Platinum has basically every option available. I do not have the HD Tow Package though as I didn't really need it for my uses. I understand the gas engine payloads for a Platinum trimmed truck are in the 2700 + range.

Beautiful truck! Was a bit surprised with payload on 3/4 ton. My 2015 Lariat 5.0 F150 Supercab has 2031 payload. That awesome engine and larger cab probably accounts for the difference. Enjoy that power and happy travels!

Diesel engine weight has a lot to do with it.

Thank you for the info. Very helpful. We are going to the dealership tomorrow to plunk down the deposit and get it ordered. Your dealer must have been smart to order one in for the floor. My dealer said there isn't one F-250 Lariat with the Ultimate package anywhere here in the Chicago area.
The Lariat ultimate is very close to the Platinum for about three grand less.
Yours ids one beautiful machine. We are getting it in Ingot silver to match the AS.

Nice
What kind of hitch setup did you end up going with?

I cant really tell since the shot is from the front and not the side, but it has the illusion of the front of the trailer being higher than the back, which is not really optimal. That's the trouble with these new Fords being so tall. you have to really have a long drop shank, since the AS hitch height is so low compared to most other trailers. I'm in the bottom hole in mine and another 1/2" would probably be perfect. Still, its a beautiful combination!

I think he should trade the truck for an Ingot Silver color to really make it look good.
Just kidding, we just placed an order for the identical truck in silver. Will take 8 to 10 weeks to get it.
