I sit corrected.... it does say powerstroke on the fender. I'm not "for certain" how powerful this particular powerstroke is....

I tow my camper (GVW=14K) with my 2000 F-350 DRW Powerstroke and it does the job, as long as you have the wallet to feed it. Brings it right up the Fancy Gap hill on I-77 at 60-65, (as long as it's not too foggy). Camper weighs almost twice as much as the truck, and I stopped it once starting down hill at 65 when the trailer brakes disconnected just with the truck brakes - did have to wash out my undies on that one though. I have used my friend's 22 foot trailer to haul tractors and implements on the interstate using chains and tighteners (wired or taped shut) with no problems - I do stop every so often and retighten - also use a 2 inch strap across the tranny on the tractor in addition to 4 corner chains. You should be fine with the Powerstroke - best truck Ford has made - later models not so hot IMHO.

a powerstroke 7.3 will pull real good. they wo't race into traffic like a race car but they pull good.

I have a 350 and 450 DRW.. I pull a GN deckover with BT trailer and have pulled my buddies e350 stretch conversion ( 16 passanger) van home from being broke down in georgia. the van was long enough that it was nosed up to the front frame and rear was just a couple feet off the beavertail. we ran interstate speed home with no problems on power. I got a big scoop on top of my 450 that was pulling that one. 4.88 rear end and 19.5" rims. I included a pic of the rig.

in short. I love those 7.3psd engines.. you will have no power problem..
