F150 payload question

With Ecoboost, does adding the max trailer pkg increase both TV payload and TT loaded weight or just trailer weight? Same question for HD payload pkg? Any idea by how much for either pkg.

It seems to be impossible to know the TV's payload capacity before delivery of the truck and checking the yellow sticker. That is the message The dealer gave me.

They are separate packages with different purposes. Max. Tow increases towing (i.e. pulling) capacity and functionality with things like a trans cooler, Class IV? hitch receiver and towing mirrors. The Max. Payload package beefs up frame, suspension, axles, wheels, tires, etc. for more load capacity in the bed and on the hitch.

Don't know the GVWR numbers for the new aluminum bodied F150's but the max trailer package increased the GVWR from 7200# to 7600#...max payload package changed the GVWR to 8200#. I'm referring to late model ecoboost F150s.

Thanks Dave,
I think my strategy will be to find an F150 with the options I'd like to have (w/o max tow or HD) on a dealers lot to see the capacity on the yellow sticker that way and then add the improvements in capacities you've described for max tow and HD to it to get the best estimate of the overall payload capacity for a similarly equipped F150. Does that make sense?

I can speak to both. After much discovery the King Ranch package as sold in in Canada is not available as the Max Payload is included in the King Ranch. Same axle and same springs as Max Payload. The Max Tow has the extra cooling capacity, mirrors and the brake controller. The Max payload as package is only available in long box version.

My 2013 MaxTow has a GVW of #7700. For that year, the same truck without the MaxTow had GVW of #7200. They HD Payload option was #8200.

I believe the max payload is available with the 8' box and regular and supercab and the 6.5' box on supercrew. As far as payload capacity, it will reduce in any cab configuration as you add options, accessories by virtue of heavier weight.

Maxtow increases payload by 500 but rear axle by only 200, so keep that in mind. Max payload increases rear axle 750 over max tow. Big difference. At least through 2014 models.

If you need a reference point. My 2012 FX4, ecoboost, super crew with a 5.5 box has a payload of 1708 lbs. Take that with a grain of salt though. No 2 are alike.
