F150 (2013) supercrew 4x4
Engine = 6.2L
Transmission = 6 speed auto
3.73 rear end
Hyperlite, Nitro, Thunderbolt ? Might want to throw a model number in this equation. There is a fairly large swing between weights from a smaller Hyperlite XLR to the big 5th wheels.
I know there is a lot of back and forth on this site about F150s... I have owned probably 7 or so F150s. My last 150 was the Ecoboost. My last 2 trucks have been F250s. I'm liking the 250 way better and I even commute 50 miles into Atlanta everyday. This has all been in the last 15 years or so. Ford likes me cause I drive 60 to 70k a year.
Post up what model you are looking at...
Also, which GCWR does your truck have 13,500 or 17,100?
One issue you may have is tongue weight, especially if you are towing without a toy in the back. Our nitro has a tongue weight of about 1100 lbs completely dry, without propane, the genny, water, or anything else. It's closer to 1400 or 1500 loaded.
