    Ford 2021 F350 CCC issue

    I am ordering a 2021 F350 crewcab 6.7 4X4 DRW 8' bed 176"WB, On the ford towing documentation it says I have to add the Camper package to get 4967 lb ccc. The issue is the Camper package adds a spring in front making it ride like a brick when not towing. Also I have looked at the exact same model without the camper package and the ccc is 5300+lb. Has any one had this issue before? Seems like the dealer would be able to talk to the factory to get the true CCC of the ordered truck?

    That seems kinda odd to me.

    Are you SURE everything is exactly the same between the "add camper package" version and the one with presumably 5300 LB payload? Exact same engine, exact same options, etc...?

    Does adding the camper package actually decrease payload? Real headscratcher to me.

    Something isn't correct with those numbers. I've got a 2016 F350 King Ranch Dually, 4x4, 8' bed (they don't make the Dually in a shorter bed) and my payload is 5270 lb. I'd go back and recheck the numbers. Depending on how the truck is equipped....and the model....Platinum, king ranch, Lariat, etc....you should be at least as much as mine, probably more.

    Back when I bought my previous truck, a F-350, I recall the camper package was meant for those wanting to carry a truck camper and they didn't recommend it for towing a camper. Fuzzy memory but thought I'd mention it just in case -- it may be a big non-issue for you.

    I don't think that is correct. Here is my 2021 (built in January) with the 3.55 axle (don't know what axle you were ordering.)

    My understanding from the dealer and others is that dually's are difficult to find. Just because you order one does not necessarily mean you will get one (in a timely manner). The one I got was ordered by someone who ran into difficulty and could not pick it up. It showed up on AutoTrader in the morning and I was able to get the dealer to pull it for me minutes after it was posted. I think it drives fantastic. My buddy has a Ram dually and his rides great as well.

    Get a F-450, problem solved, and you'll love the turning radius.

    F-450 is roughly 500 lbs less than a similarly equipped F-350 in payload (well, legal any way), so that wouldn't help him here.

    Adding the camper package on a 350 DRW does not touch rear springs. It will add weight reducing payload.

    No doubt you can get the payload up there on the 450, but I think you can get the 350 higher at max. I've never seen either in the wild at the "maximum towing" like advertised but have seen the more common configurations. 450 is lower payload vs it's equal 350 in every case I've seen.
