Concerned about payload

Hey all,

Looking at an F150 ecoboost xlt 4x4 for a TV and came across one that has the 7350 pkg, 3.55 electronic slip with tow pkg, int. brake controller. The GVWR is 7350, but payload is only 1212 on it. We're looking at getting a Roo 19 so I'm confident this truck will handle it fine, but the payload seems kind of low for this vehicle. What do you guys think?

Payload is in the bed, not what you are towing.

Initially that's what I thought, but I also swore I read that hitch weight and weight of passengers counts against payload. Can't seem to find the stuff I read though.

I think you would be fine with a Roo 19, but it would also depend on what you wanted to haul in the bed of your truck. If it's normal camping gear I think you're fine. If you want to put a large quad in the bed and fill in around it with firewood, along with a spouse, a couple kids, and a dog in the cab ... maybe not.

The tongue weight is subtracted from the payload.

Nah just normal camping gear/ice chests which if needed could be put in the TT. No quads or anything like that. Prob. just bikes TBH. Not even firewood.

no, payload is what's in the cab and in the bed. Put a load of good size people in the cab, you don't have much left for cargo

In simple terms, I think you are correct, But that roo can't have much more than a 3 or 4 hundred pounds TONGUE weight, so subtract that from payload as to what you haul.
