A lot of people said I would be fine with a 1/2 ton because it was a bumper pull but I knew I would have a high TW due to dual 30lb tanks and dual batteries up front. I also load my truck bed up with bikes, toys, and generators. Also I tow mountains all the time so I wanted the power and torque the diesel ?


Dollars to donuts, you are over too....

My Flagstaff Super Lite 8528RKWS has a pin weight of 1100 and dry weight of 7700. With that I can keep my F150 in good shape.

For those just watching, no need to hijack the thread with concession items.

Back to the topic.

We owned a "1/2 ton towable" fifth wheel when we purchased our 2012 Ford F150 with the eco-boost engine. We were looking to upgrade it and found that the cargo capacity of our pickup was not enough for the pin weight. We traded it in on a smaller travel trailer.

I'm in the same boat as I am also a newbie. I have a 2007 Tundra with 5.7L V8 with full factory tow package that is rated to two 10,600 lbs. I purchased a RW Premier Ultralight 5th Wheel that has a gvwr of 9206lb. If I use the suggested 15 and 25% of gvwr as my range for pin weight that is 1381# min pin wt. and 2301 max pin wt. I read this and got to checking and my payload (CCC) for my truck is 1475. After taking out 340# for my wife and me and 250 for hitch in bed that leaves 885 for pin wt. I am way over wt. as I see it. Any disagreement? As a newbie to 5th wheels I naively listened to the salesman convince me that my truck could more than handle the weight and pull the RV with out problems. Do I need a new and bigger truck?
