Ok one question and I might have missed this. Your truck does not weigh 10k. My Dually 4x4 CC LWB 6.7 only weighs 8200. What is the GVWR of your truck, my guess is 10K. Your truck might weigh 8k maybe, but my guess is a hair under. Weigh the truck with everyone in it full of fuel and everything you travel with in the truck. You will be close I think, maybe not over, but if you are, not by much. Maybe enough that some loading adjustments can get you within specs.

Is the 1605 the listed pin weight by Keystone or your actual scale weighed pin weight? I have a feeling, it's the listed pin weight. With that in mind, the actual pin weight is likely 200-400 pounds more than 1605 if propane, batteries and gear have been loaded to the trailer.

Clearly the salesman doesn't have the knowledge to properly set up the truck and trailer. I do have to ask, did the dealer have other comparable trucks (same engine, cab/bed, 4x4, trim package) on the lot to check stickers? And, 14,700 is the towing capacity of the truck. The truck likely has a Gross Combined Vehicle Weight of 22,500 (listed by Ford in the Super Duty Towing Guide). If you were to hitch up a 14,700 pound trailer, that would only allow the truck to weigh 7800 with the driver, fuel and truck weight.

They will happily trade it in at your loss. Whatever F350 you get, make sure it has substantially more than 10,000 GVW. That will gain you lots of payload.

I would hope that actual scale numbers help for an easier exchange.

However, taking it to an attorney or the media seems excessive. I know that Glendar10 is a fellow Super Duty owner (and I do feel for him in this situation) but he has/had the ultimate decision making the purchase of his truck and properly setting up the truck/trailer combination.

The bottom line is the truck should never have been purchased prior to seeing the payload sticker.
