Ecoboost yes, otherwise you are on the edge.
For short distances, you would probably be ok.
But definitely not a preferred setup.

So roughly 5400 curb on truck (not too off the wall guess but we don't have much to go by and 15100 GCVW minus 9700 max tow = 5400 left for truck @ curb minimum) and 8300 in the 5er with avg loading puts you at 13700. Fully loaded 5er with *empty* truck (just you and gas) at 14800. that doesn't include accessories, hitch, more people, etc

No, I have the 4.6 3v 3.73 gear Sticker says gvwr is #7000, Trailer rating is #9400, gcwr is #15,100. I am towing a 30kqbss now, and it weighs more than the fifth wheel, am I over loaded now? The only issue I have now is it is swaying of the trailer even with the equilizer WDH.
