Default 2007 F-250 drive shaft notching under load

My 2007 F-250 (6.0 liter) has a shake in what I think is the drive shaft only under heavy load. When I'm towing my 5th wheel (10,000#) if I get a little heavy on the pedal when starting from a stop, I can feel the truck shudder or shake from what I think is the drive shaft. It gradually decreases as the speed increases, and before it shifts into 2nd, it's smooth again. At speed, it's fine, and when solo, it'll still do it from a stop if you take off quickly. It seems that something is binding up under heavy load. Any ideas before I pull the drive shaft? BTW, it has 207K and I have no idea if anything has ever been serviced on the drive shaft.

Trans has 207k? Serviced at regular intervals? Does it shake/shudder in reverse or forward only?

Default Notching

I just bought the truck a year ago, but it appears the transmission has been serviced regularly and I can't say if it's original or not. It was serviced by the place I bought it from (Powerstroke Specialty) and they did service it and inspect it. It shifts great and gives no indication of any slipping. I intend on moving the trailer to it's normal storage position on my driveway, and I will check 'reverse' and let you know.
