Don't forget to think about your brakes. At that close of tow weight you may fall in to trouble braking. especially down hill or in heavy traffic. I had a 2500hd and towed a 38ft toy hauler it was well inside the weight limits of the truck but I had some real close calls on braking at times.

I certainly agree, defensive driving/towing skills are required with any heavy trailer. I drove a F350 and Fifth wheel around in 1987 for a radio station. Doesn't take much to get in trouble.

I have a 14 f150 ecoboost screw. I also own a 8327ss rockwood. Very close to the same weights you are looking at. Can it pull it yes it can. Should you? I hitched mine up and even with weight distribution i wouldn't tow it. The tuck looked way overloaded. Airbags and lt tires might mask the symptoms but not worth it. I also own 06 F350 diesel I tow with and it pulls it great. Be careful avoid what sales people say you can pull. I like the 75% max rule when I tow.
