You are going to love this truck when pulling! We have a 2011 Ecoboost and have pulled our Windjammer for two seasons--from sea level to over 10,000 feet. Never an issue.

It's got the 373 wheel ratio, plus max tow package, so we can pull 11,200. Should be pretty darn easy to pull our little 5000 lb trailer anywhere we want!

The F150 is a nice, very nice truck. Then add in that Eco boost under the hood and it turns into an amazing truck. I had a 2013 FX4 Eco F150 for a few months before trading up to my F350 FX4 6.7PSD. If you would like to visit a great forum dedicated to the Eco Boost F150 I recommend F150 Ecoboost Forum A great warm owners group full of information and assistance when or if needed. It is a very family friendly group.
Yes, it was pretty hard to find one with the max tow and 373... The mirrors extend out too...you have to manually pull them, no big deal.
Thanks for the forum link, I'll check it out. This truck has so many bells and whistles, I don't even know how to do most of it yet.
The FX package is real nice, just couldn't swing the extra 10,000 for it.

Remember, that's on P rated tires. I would go to LT LRD to get rid of the squirm the P tires give when towing anything. Voice of experience.

When you put a load on a P rated tire, the tires have very flexible sidewalls and the rear of the truck will move (squirm) from side to side. Some folks call it "wallowing".

Ok, I'll have to look for that. Keep in mind the trailer is only about 5000 lbs. I can't get rid of tires that are not even a month old.
