We have a 2304DS that we tow with a 2013 F150 STX Supercab, V8. Carry apron 800lbs plus whatever we pack in the trailer. No problem towing or stopping. 6.5 bed, equalizer hitch, tow package.. Hope this helps. Enjoy..

I pull a 30' Rockwood Windjammer with a 2011 Ford Ecoboost shortbed. So far, I've covered about 13,000 miles, Yellowstone, Black Hills, Denver, Florida, Smoky Mountains, Hudson Valley, Michigan. Slow and steady 60-65 mph. I would have to believe you would be OK with an F150.

If you go with a new truck, note that Ford does NOT include trailer tow mirrors in the trailer packages. They must be ordered separately. Also, due to the computer controlling functioning of the mirrors, you probably CANNOT add them later. There is a long thread on the F-150 Forum about people trying. The only way you can retrofit is to find an identical truck with the mirrors and copy the computer program from the that truck.
BTW, the payload on my truck is 1450 lbs.

Good point, I have the truck the OP is inquiring about. They sell a clip on that covers the entire mirror assembly, they are fitted exclusively for this truck and it hard to tell the difference between stock. Bought mine off Amazon for around 45.00.

Don't worry about high rpm' s with the Ecoboost. You will rarely run over 2,000 even going up hills.

Is his saying something from Ford about towing full size TT with an F-150?
"Ford does NOT include trailer tow mirrors in the trailer packages"
Just asking.

I know I have seen some of the new F-150's with tow mirrors which includes the dealerships.

Regarding ability to pull up hills, take a look at this video from Fast Lane Truck - they use a 2013 F-150 to pull 10K lbs up an xway out west from 10-12k feet of elevation 10% grade. Ran at 3900 RPM at 65 MPH.
