Really upset me. We went and bought a 2014 Ford Flex which has 7 passenger seating and is 4400 pounds. Still would rather towed the F150

Not sure I believe your dealers explanation.
Length has nothing to do with it.
3 considerations, chassis gvwr , chassis gcwr and the actual rating of hitch.
On the legacy our gvwr is 28k and gcwr is 33k.
We weighed coached with all tanks full
Fully loaded for trip and family on board and can't get it above 25k or so.
So as long as the hitch is truly a 10k hitch, towing 7-8k should be no problem.
We never travel with full tanks so this was a worst case scenario i did. Usually travel with half fresh and empty black and grey.
