Is your Ford a F-150 or F-250? If F-150, is the short bed the 5.5ft or 6.5ft? If it's the F-150, while the specs may bear it out, you are very likely to not be happy with the towing. Maybe if you only do short trips to local areas that don't involve many hills or mountains, but even then, the F-150 is just not really made for 5th wheel towing. I've seen enough of them, and some people are happy with it, but I'm just saying, an F-150 will struggle, for all it being a good truck.
If it's an F-150 with the 5.5ft bed, I wouldn't even consider it at all.
