If you get one with the Max. Tow Pkg and the Heavy Duty Payload Pkg, your tow limit will be reduced to 12900lbs but your payload will be increased substantially.
That may be a more balanced set up for it will give you around 2500lbs payload limit.

You need a 250. You will regret buying that truck to tow that trailer. The gas 250 is not that much more expensive.

I have a 2010 Flagstaff 8528RLWS 5th wheel. Gross 9187, dry 6830, pin 1187. Pulling it with 2019 F150 Lariat super crew cab with 3.5 eco-boost, 3.73 gears, 10 speed trans, heavy duty payload package and max trailer tow package, 11,400 towing capacity and 2428 payload capacity. Trailer tows and stops great with this truck. No issues. Previously towed with a 2010 F150 XLT super crew cab. Both trucks were factory order as I wanted the heavy duty payload package in addition to max trailer tow package but well worth the wait and no regrets with either.

My opinion is you are well within specs and will be fine. Just make sure you watch payload. I tow a 7000 lb (33ft total lenght)Puma with a 2016 F150 ecoboost and have no problems at all. I do have a Hensley hitch. I have not towed without the Hensley on this truck, but with it this tows like a dream.

An experienced tow driver with actually use the trailer brakes to settle the truck down so the trailer is pulling the truck to a stop rather than push it into a jack knife. my 40 years plush hauling up to 80,000 pounds taught me many a lesson. Don't wanna curse myself but I never had an accident hauling a trailer. Tons of experience, driving within the speeds the traffic and conditions give you, and on the job training and a little luck goes a long way. BTW I used to race motocross too...lol

If you're worried about stopping the trailer, add disc brakes to the trailer, then the trailer will help stop the truck. I believe a F-350 would have trouble stopping the trailer if the trailer brakes fail.

Expect to have to get some sort of suspension enhancement, either airbags, timbrens or active rear suspension. The rear is squishy and you will aim up even with a well tuned WDH at that weight.

I'm leasing my truck, it is stock with P rated 20" tires.

For my setup, it all works well. When the lease is up, I'll probably get another nearly identical truck.


My truck has max tow and power tow mirrors, does NOT have HDPP. Note that tow mirrors are NOT included in the tow packages, they must be ordered separately.

Some think that the new F150 is the F150 from years ago.
In 2015 purchased an F150 ( 11,200 tow capacity ) eco boost with trailer tow package for my wife to tow her gooseneck 9000# gvw horse trailer, all her friends said it would not work was not safe etc.
The combination has performed perfectly and the only thing we changed was add aftermarket air bags. I have also towed a triple axle 9600# boat without any issues.
It is reasonable to operate below maximum rated towing capacity and can be done safely as long the trailer is loaded as designed and the brake system is working correctly.

We have a 2011 F150 3.5L v-6 Ecoboost Ford with which we pull a 29 ft. Vibe trailer. We have no problems pulling to Waterton National Park in SW Alberta, Canada--uphill all the way there, which is a bit over 100 km from where we live in Raymond, on the Canadian prairies. Truck came with towing package. Don't know the particulars. Handles the against-us west wind to boot. I think your F150 will also do the job.
