How does this sound? (Incidentally, the truck was custom ordered by another individual with the Max. tow pkg. and 20" wheels. I just bought it with 17,000 miles.)
Looks like Ford has really upped the numbers since 2006. That Rear GAWR is 200 lbs more than mine, and the GVWR is 475 lbs. over my truck.
In reading the other info you posted, and if your truck has the 5.4L engine and the 5.5' bed (145" wheelbase) than it looks like you are rated to tow 11,200 lbs. I don't see a notation where 20" tires would decrease that rating, but will hurt you some with pulling power. With a 34' trailer, the 157" wheelbase (6.5' bed ) would be a better tow vehicle, and that would still be short according to a popular chart and equation.....that is 1 long trailer.
Keeping the hitch on the light side will be important so you don't exceed the maximum 1150 lb. tongue weight rating. 1200 lb. bars will probably be the best fit.
Looks like you will be within the weight police guidelines, but marginally so. Even though a 145" wheelbased truck is a fairly long tow vehicle, for a 34' trailer a longer wheelbase would be much better. JMHO
