Had a 2007 F150 with 5.4L and 3.73 up until last week. Just ordered a 2012 Windjammer 3008W that's around 7k dry, and the day before I ordered the TT, I traded my '07 F150 for an '08 F250. Nothing wrong with my F150, and towing my previous Keystone Outback 21rs with a loaded weight of 6k was a good fit with my Equalizer WDH. However, the biggest reason for me wanting to upgrade was due to payload capacity considering the dry tongue weight of my Outback was only 375 lbs and the Windjammer's is double that. Could my F150 tow the Windjammer? Sure, it's well within the F150's tow rating, which was 9200 lbs, however I was already very near my payload capacity just towing the Outback, once I factored in passengers, cargo in the truck's bed like firewood, bikes, grill, other gear, etc, and of course a full tank of gas. The 5.4 was a good motor for what I needed it do. I wasn't going to win any races before when towing the Outback, but I would have been almost afraid to tow the Windjammer up in the mountains with it's additional weight and hitch weight. For me, I felt more comfortable and more safe going to a bigger truck that was more suitable to handle a 34' TT with a dry weight of 7k and could adequately support the tongue weight of a heavier trailer. Others may be just fine using a 1/2 ton to pull the same trailer, and alot may depend on how often, how far, and what kind of roads you tow on. At the very least, I'd say with a tongue weight of 928 lbs, even with a WDH like the Equalizer, by the time you load yourself and your family along with a full tank of gas, you're not going to have much, if any, payload left to put anything in the bed of your truck.
