When you say "The typical one ton dually has a rear axle capable of handling 11,000 pounds" .... do you mean that the truck has a realistic payload capacity (load in the bed), of 11,000 lbs?

Thanx .... d.

No. That's the axle manufacturer rating.
Dana axles were used and now I believe it is the Sterling 10.5 axle
I can't put my finger on the Sterling 10.5 axle rating but it's 11,000 pounds if I recall correctly.

11,000 pounds would probably break the rims, pop the tires and crush the bed on a one ton dually truck.
Theoretically, one could put 11,000 pounds into the bed provide that all component parts of the bed, suspension, rims and tires were upgraded.
I'm not sure how one would stop it once it got rolling though. Confused
I traded in the problematic 2014 Lance for an 1150 Arctic Fox - wish EC made the 1150.
The rig looks similar to this - nothing exceeds factory weight limits.

Ah! Got it! Hey even with the EC1165 loaded on my 2015 RAM Dually, when it comes to stopping - nothing is going to happen really quick! Always driving 1/4 mile ahead when cruising with this beast, just as if I were hauling an 80K load with a big rig. I do wish my truck had air brakes tho! Confused

Would be good to hear exactly what people use.

1 ton gas dually's do have some useful payload per mfg. spec.

Straight from Ram 2015 3500 towing pdf file:
6.4L V8 hemi with 4.10 rear, crew cab long box 4X2, DRW
payload: 7,020 lbs
rear axle "payload" 6550 pounds (subtract base weight (3208lbs) from max (9750lbs))

This gas engine/tranny rated for a GCWR of 23,400 pounds, brakes rated for the GVWR of 14k lbs.

You won't have a race car for sure, but you'll have more oomph than say an 18,000lb Ford F53 based motorhome chassis. And this huge camper doesn't give much away to a small class A in terms of features/comfort.

2017 Ford Superduty might add a few hundred useful pounds of payload ...
