Thanks for the great write-up
I have a 2013 F150 SuperCrew 3.5 EcoBoost with the 3.31 Axle ratio. My F150 tows my 233S Roo no issues at all. I am however at my payload capacity.

I think the key is knowing the details of the truck's specifications. Unfortunately the sales people will not always be very helpful so you need to do the research yourself. Reviewing the truck manufacturer towing guides will help. Ford for example has a Towing Guide you can easily find online by searching F150 towing guide - be sure to include your model year. You then need to confirm the specs of the trucks you are considering. There is a sticker on the driver's side door that will detail the truck's specs including the axle ratio and other elements. You can then apply these specs in the towing guide to determine the truck's capabilities.

As has been said on the forum numerous times, the issue with most half ton pickup trucks is not towing capacity but rather payload capacity.

You are correct, it is an absorption fridge, my mistake ....
