According to the tow info for my exact truck, it says 15,800 5er towing. I Keep it simple. My door tag says 2546 lbs total cargo. Pin is 1750. Leaves me about 800lbs for family ect. I put the luggage in the trailer and try to keep just the bare essentials in the truck for more room. Family weighs in at 435 so I can throw in 365 lbs more bs.
My 5er loaded total weighs 12k and my truck pulls and stops with zero issue and once in the highway you can't tell it's back there unless we hit some big bumps.
Keep it simple and safe and go have fun. I would put in some air bags with on board air for your Ford but otherwise truck on.
