Forget about "dry weight". Use GVW of trailer unless you plan on towing the trailer the way it left the factory with nothing in it, no propane bottles and no batteries.
By the time you add max tow and max payload packages to the F150 you'll be more than the F 250 price wise and still have a 1/2 ton truck. You're going to find that payload ultimately ends up being the achilles heel.
30' 5th wheel = 3/4 ton truck at a minimum.
That's my opinion, get ready for about 19 million others of which about half will be you need a diesel.
