I said nothing about a camper. I said "small trailer with a mower or whatever a homeowner may need a truck for". Do not quote something I DID NOT SAY!

Something a homeowner may need a truck for, is go to home improvement store get a couple sheets of plywood, or some landscape material.

I know lots of companies that use f-150 to drive around for general use.

Thumbs up I'm still here :)

Update;
...I was just reading through them, sorting through the information.

Here's the info I pulled from the owner's manual. The only discrepancy I see is that they don't list a "Super Crew", as shown on my sticker originally attached, only a "Crew Cab". Are they the same, because it's the only 4x2 at the 139" wheelbase that I own.

Secondly, based upon all the great information and foresight you all have shared, I am now considering the;

Cruiser RV XT-276
XT-276 - Cruiser RV

The forward bed & ability to sleep 4 is important. I'm helping my wife with her "Boutique on the Go" business, so we're not carrying bigger, heavier toys, instead boxes of ladies shoes, purses, accessories. The heaviest part of the load are those black metal 6' grid walls that you see in the middle of our trailer.

Here's a few more snapshots of what we have & what I'm trying to find a solution for with our existing F-150. Your input and recommendations of trailers that suit our needs would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm obviously like a fish out of water here!

Thanks again to all, and I look forward to your feedback.

Those cruisers look nice, too...exactly like the XLR versions at each size. You are still going to struggle with payload. These toy haulers are made with a heavy tongue so that you can load heavy weights in the garage. Even if you stay light you still have 800 pounds counting against your payload. As Barry said, the yellow sticker will really help.

As soon as I get home, I'll be shooting that yellow sticker on the drivers door for you. Thanks!
Jesse

That one was likely on the door itself. The one you want is on the door frame near the bottom. It actually has yellow highlights and is labeled "Tire and loading information"
It looks like this:

Now that the stickers are posted, I'm waiting to see if anybody comes up with a different recommendation than I did...

Tires can be changed to a higher load rating and type which renders this sticker useless.
