Yes that is true had a few try to tell me with my 2014 F150 EB SCREW SB I could easily tow an ultra lite 5er when my max tow was 11,200 but pin was 1520, they said most lite 5th wheels are only 1200-1300, after fuel I could drive it and no more weight?

I upgraded to a F350 Crew SB 6.7 Diesel SRW. I am looking at a trailer with a pin of 1920 and I've of 9980 I have Payload of 3500 and Max tow of 15,700 and it is just Future Wife and I plus Fuel and some firewood, so we are well within specs but I could never tow a 5th wheel with the F150 even though the truck could it would be very unsafe.

I looked at a F250 same truck specs but it only had a payload of 2300#'s
