I have an F-150 with the Max Tow pkg that is supposed to tow 11,200 pounds. My TT weighs about 6500 pounds loaded. Where I live in WNC, I would really need a F-250 if I bought a larger TT. Remember, those max tow capacities are really intended for flat land and low altitudes.

Man....just went through all this....and as a result just traded my 2010 F150 crew cab 5.4L for a 2013 F250. 6.2. More about the stability in towing than the economy...honestly...economy and towing are not hand in hand. We have a windjammer 3006w, 34 ft @ 7500lbs...the F150 was capable....just didn't inspire confidence and was shifting all over the place. We demo'd an ecoboost long wheelbase...sure, it pulls hard....just not as solid as the F250. It will get the job done though...
