Not all 1/2 ton trucks are created equal. And not all towing and/or payload capacities are dependent on this very broad
and easily misunderstood vehicle classification. It's always best to have more truck than trailer, but simply using the "1/2 ton" or "half ton" or "1500" or "F150" classification to make a decision is not doing enough homework.
The Wildcat eXtraLite 312BHX certainly is "half ton" towable -- but not all 1/2 ton trucks are a good match to this floor plan. To demonstrate, let's take Ford for instance:
2012 Ford F-150 | View Towing Specifications | Ford.com
(max towing capacity varies from 5,500 to 11,300 -- more than double in the same "class"!)
2012 Ford F-150 | View Payload Specifications | Ford.com
(max payload varies from 1,510 to 3,120 -- more than double in the same "class"!)
