SD Frame failure

Sadly the F350 & F450 duallys both use the same frame. If this was built on a F450/F550 cab/Chassis this wouldn't have happened.

 

Thanks, I was wondering about that. The Chassis Cab load capacity numbers seem to be considerably higher than the "pick up" version, even if you subtract 1000# for the box.

Are those available with a bed?  I thought maybe he was sticking to 350/450 so he could keep his existing camper.

Probably not from the factory, but I would have to imagine that there would be an aftermarket option to look at.

F650 of F550 chassis cab needed here.(believe those are straight frames from front to back???)...he is way over payload capacity and (GVWR)...most go to axle rating but that is only a part of being able to safely tow heavy loads(more weight on any f350 like diesel reduces payload)...acts like this is not helpful to rv's being exmpt from CDL requirements and honestly some of the stuff i see needs to stop by regulation if need be...dont like it but my family safely passing trumps  those idiots on the road pulling unsafe loads just because of the rv cdl exemption....slide in camper sales people you never trust....they will sell you anything....your responsibility to know what your truck can and cannot safely haul/tow..at least he was not pulling that 70mph on I90

 

GVWR - vehicle weight = payload
