Anyone see issues with this combo. Sure others have the same setup. Truck is SB SRW 6.7. 3400 payload cap. Plan on Andersen Ultimate hitch setup. Get a bit confused with the ford towing chart but thinking max 5th/goose is 20.6k. Can anyone confirm?

Planning on upgrading to our first 5er before the summer. Towing mostly @ altitude in Colorado.

The GVW of the 371 is 16,470. Giving it a max pin weight of 3300#. If the payload of the truck is 3400. That does not leave a lot of margin. Granted you may not load RV to max. cargo capacity, however if you do you will most likely exceed the trucks cargo capacity. The 371 has a large 4K cargo capacity so you can load a bit of cargo and still not be at the max. rating.
On the other hand if you like to haul water and load your RV to the max you will be at the limits of your truck.
A 16K GVW RV is dually territory in my mind, but the real question is what will your actual weight be.
Under 15K the SRW is adequate as you approach 16K you begin to press your limits.

Looking at the chart from Ford and not sure of all the features of your truck the max fifth/gooseneck trailer load is 17,200 for a 2 wheel drive supercab, the truck you look at or have will have a sticker just inside the door post that will state the recommended limits and it can vary a lot depending on how stripped or loaded the truck is. It might be close but it also depends on your comfort level.
