All you need is a high enough payload rating on the truck to handle the weight of the hitch, all people and gear you travel with and the loaded pin weight.

I know two people who does it but one has a long bed and HD package and ecoboost, and the other one is a short bed 5.4 I believe ...

The numbers have to work ...

I haul my 5'r with my Ecobeast, but it is a longbox. First and foremost run the numbers on your proposed combo. There are VERY few pairs that will work.

What's your payload from your door jam sticker.

Just have to find out the gvwr. Gross vehicle weight rating.Should be a sticker on your door of the ford. Includes all weight in the truck. Passengers, fuel, cargo, hitch weight etc. The gcwr ( gross combined weight rating is all that plus the trailer. The new f-150 should be able to tow your trailer pretty easily according to ford. I tow mine with a gm so I'm not sure but I heard the f150 had a 9000 lb. Tow capacity.

Cargo carrying capacity is the first number that you'll need to decide if your within limits.
You'll normally exceed this number before ANY OTHER weight.
This number will be found on your tire info sticker on your door jamb.
