I pull a 29BHSS about 6.5 k dry.
My 150 has 3.73s, locker, and 6.5' bed. With the Max Tow package it's supposed to be rated at 11,200 tow... The yellow sticker on the door says 1900+ pay load.

Love my ecoboost. I have the 3.55 fx4 screw. Do you guys think I could manage a toy hauler that is 5500 dry, expected load 6500 tops? Debating whether to scale back and stick to a 5k trailer. Both would be 600 hitch and 27 feet overall.

Sorry that should have read at most 1000 pound load of cargo and fluids so total weight 6500. My bigger concern is that it is 12 feet high and 8 1/2 wide. Is that a deal breaker or anyone towing a similar size?

Need New Truck

I pull a 33 ft. 10,000 lb. dry weight 5th wheeler with a 2012, F-250 Ford super Duty with the 6.7 diesel engine. The tow package on this truck is fantastic. The heavy camper is no problem for this truck, hardly know it`s back there, and the engine is very clean burning, no smoke.

As far as frontal area of your TT, I think that is mentioned in the F150 owners manual. Ill check. But your weight is well in range. With short wheel base that truck is just like mine. Rated at 9600 towing capacity.

Sales literature says the frontal area limitation is 60 sq ft with tow package.

Thanks, I saw that too. Most list height with ac. I assume that does not count as frontal or no tt will qualify.
