Ford Payload

Hi
I have a 2014 F-150 Ecoboost 3.5 Screw 5.5í box XLT with a GVWR of 7200lbs. Anemic payload of 1359.
I was looking at a 2019 F-150 3.5 Screw 5.5í box XLT. It has a GVWR of 7000lbs and payload of 1811. Is that improvement in payload due to the aluminum now used? Just curious.
We have to step up the payload as we bought a 2019 Rockwood 2509s and we are going easily exceed payload on the 2014. Unfortunately I hadnít educated myself on payload prior to buying the 2014. We previously towed a 233s and it was fine but we were probably over on that too.
Thanks Maple5251

You must not have the Max tow package.
I have a 2014 SCREW EcoBoost XLT with Max tow package. My payload is 1828lbs.

Ford claims a 700lb weight savings by switching from steel to an aluminum body. That may be one of the factors but as pointed out above, how you load up on options is a big contributor to increasing/decreasing payload capacity.

Good luck with your new camper and truck!

Sad that bling reduces payload. any one of 20 things effect payload. engine, trans, gear ratio, options etc

That's a bummer and it's basically the story with my own F-150, albeit mine is a 2005 with a turd of a 5.4L V8.

The 2509S will drop about 850-900 lbs on your truck. So, the question is how many people and other things do you have in your truck?

For me, I have my wife and 3 of my kids. That's ~700 lbs right there. Throw in some firewood for fires, my WDH, and maybe a bike and I'm probably pushing 900 lbs of occupants and cargo.

It adds up pretty fast.

I hope you find the TV you're looking for.

Depending on the market in your area, you might well find a 2018 F250 for less money.

I had a 5.4 l 2009 and towed a 32 ft Rockwood. Ran like a champ and didn't poop out!

F150forum.com has a thread called Post Your Payload. Has a spreadsheet with a couple hundred trucks. Breaks out trim, engine, bed, options, etc and the related payload. Should give you a good idea of what to expect.
