Overweight!

Saw this at a truck stop while I was refueling. Holy smokes! The dry pin weight on that five’r is at least 2,0000 pounds. No F-150 is spec’d for that high GAWR, GVWR or GCWR. If that guy loses control and hurts someone, their lawyers will look at the door jam sticker and see dollar bills.

That 5er has a dry weight of 9125, pin weight of 2075, and GVW of 15,250. If empty there are F150s that could haul it. I found a F150 with a max tow at 13,200 and a max payload of 3200. Of course there is still a GCVW to have the final figures. With no cargo and a without a toy in the garage that truck may be able to tow that. I wouldn't, but I tend to be more conservative with GCVWs and towing max.

Those weights are for a reg cab 4x2 8' bed. That guy/gal in the photo is over weight period.

Come on guys...ya all know that you could hook that up to a 4 banger Ford Ranger. No problem at all. Might squish the rear tires a bit, but it wouldn't hurt the runnin of it!!!

According to the 2018 Ford towing chart for fifth wheels, the 4X4SCREW can tow up to 10,600 (the 13k figure is for conventional towing). The setup pictured could be within mfg spec unless actual weights and truck accessories can be deduced from the photograph.


On my cube wall I have a picture of an improbable act with the caption:
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

I did say "may" be able to. Unless someone knows exactly how that truck is built and exactly how the 5er is configured no one could say for sure. I believe I also gave a bunch of other caveats. I also said I would not no matter. I also believe I was responding to the original post saying "NO" F150 is spec'd for that camper. Yes....yes...I do believe that is what I was saying.
