With the current set up and numbers provided and once you add those passengers, you will be over the GVWR of the truck by at least 60 lbs if nothing else is added.....I would not like to drive that set up....

Looks to me that your in that "gray area" with numbers, that many people who RV run in. According to all the legal stickers you will be over weighted, but yet still below some max axle and max tire ratings. It doesn't make it right but you will not be alone when running down the road like this. Many people run close on there limits and say it feels fine so they go with it. Ultimately it's your choice.

sgt, I was traveling but now have my laptop and my simple calculator. My vote is that you will be fine and have a margin for safety at every axle; with the numbers you posted (pictures are worth 1000 words)... with WDH... your front and rear axles are below their GAWR rating: steering by 430# and drive 210# below; with gross weight is 920# under. There is no reason to believe even without knowing that gross combined and trailer weights that you are exceeding them. Plus, the eBoost has more than enough torque to pull the heck out of it. I would rather pull with the F-150 eco-beast than an f-250 gasser. If you can set your brake controller to a heavy setting, do it.
I said you were moving 360# from the rear axle with the WDH, it could be like 400# depending on the scale deviation. By the way, your tongue weight ratio with WDH is 8.4%... I would be tinkled pink with those numbers... have fun and enjoy your summer.

"Gross weight 920 under" ... Back to the calculator Wolf.

The truck will be right on or just over the GVWR and RAWR after her pickup of passengers. Will everything be fine, more than likely.

oops... had my 2500 data in one of the fields. With TW rear is over, you all are right. I need to find another "career". My apologies to Sgt.

The F250 is going to have a lower rearend ratio.. which will be a big benefit when towing..

I appreciate all of the help. I found out today that she'll pull the empty TT to Arkansas and then it'll be pulled by a f350. I guess we are dodging a bullet here. If I were able to go on this trip with her I'd pull it all the way to Rocklahoma! Looks like I have a F250 in my future.

I do have a question though. I see ecoboosts pulling 5ers all the time. Surely those 5ers are heavier than mine, right? Maybe I just need to get a 5er.

If you were in the market for a generator, what would you get? $1500 budget.

Your Ecco Boost with a 1359 payload with a 200 lbs person and 250 lbs hitch only nothing else in the truck:

You're adding approximately 450 lbs. to the truck. You have 909 lbs. of payload capacity. Fifth wheels typically have 20% - 25% pin weight which gives you a maximum loaded camper weight of 3,636 - 4,545 lbs.

Check out the numbers in Towing Planner. Towing Calculator based on Truck's Payload/CCC - Towing Planner

The ecoboosts you see are HD with max tow and rated much higher than your truck. Many of them are still running over payload but owners have chosen to do so.

As shown above you are overweight. It is up to you if you want yo upgrade and be within weight or not. We can only answer based on the data provided. Personally, I have towed overweight and based on the experience I had in the mountains of NC and,VA, I will never tow overweight again. I am the wife and I drive our rig 98% of the time. I would not let my DH drive with the weights you show but again, that is me not you.
