When I went to VIN Decoder @ North American Motoring I got all the info I needed. The info was great. This should help you decide if you can tow safely.

I have a 2011 Ford f-150 with the Ecoboost and an Windjammer 3001. I use an Equalizer 12000 hitch and haven't had any problems. The springs on the F-150 give a little more than some other makers and sits down a little but I have been pulling it for a couple of years now and over 15000 miles with no problems. However I did just recently put on the Firestone air springs. I can put in about 30 pounds of air and the truck is really level now. Hope this helps.

No way. Need a 2500 with a diesel or big V8.

I for one totally agree with you. I don't care what kind of hype the manufactures of these pickups say. You shouldn't be pushing a 1/2 ton truck with 9,000 lbs behind you. I thought I could get away with with the 1/2 ton I had when we bought our windjammer. Yes it did pull it up some steep grades getting 3 mpg, and the winds were very scary. I was used to pulling a 7,000 lb loaded trailer, but the additional 2,000 lbs is way to much.

I bought the truck in my signature, so I could pull legally, and safely. No weight police here, but it was just scary. My new TV pulls this TT very nice. It stops well, and the crosswinds,and Semi's don't bother me. I'm very relaxed at the end of the day. I think the old saying holds true; there's no replacement for displacement. use the right tool for the job.
