I've had Power Strokes pulling 35' fifth wheels pass my V10 gas F250 like I was sitting still while I was doing 70 pulling my 27'. Just because you can pull it with a smaller vehicle doesn't always mean you can keep it under control in an emergency situation.
No Control Issues...
Does not have a short wheel base.
Has the same performance as any F150 or more.

If you don't drive like an *******... You should be issue free with any vehicle.

Sounds a bit like a 7th graders discussion here. "My dog's bigger than your dog." Buy what you like, or the cup holders your OH likes.
I've pulled a 15' West, with a '63 Falcon Futura 6 cyl. 144 CID on our honeymoon (48 years ago) at 45 MPH, level land, no wind, thru the Smokey Mtns., to now pulling a 40' Sanibel with an '08 Duramax crew LB SRW. Only prob in all those years, a blow out on the Sanibel, GY Marathons, replaced with Sailun 14 PR tires.
Have A Great Day!!!, and, A Great, Safe camping season.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
