I'll have to check the scale weight when I get home.
As for supercharger, my apologies, I misspoke. It's the 7.3L Powerstroke, no supercharger. Another bus we were looking at had a turbocharger, not supercharger.
I'm a bit out of my element...

Iím curious what your frame rail measurement is on the Ford and what you find for a hitch. I was working on the hitch project and couldnít find the right factory hitch, so I put it on hold.
Iím also interested in how the wiring goes since the turn and brake wires are separate. Please let me know!
Thanks for the feedback. I'll let you know what I find out. We are still very early in the process, I'm just thinking about the "what ifs" right now. I did take it to a shop to get some thoughts on hitches and was told it will most likely be a custom fabrication job, which I kind of expected.
As for frame rail length, I have no idea. I'll have to figure out how to find that. It's the five-window shortie, if that helps. I'm still very new to all of these specs being thrown around.
