You didn't factor the 100lbs for the WDH, which goes against your payload amount.
So that means you are already over before you even start adding battery, water and cargo.

I would first see if you can find another TT that will work for you.

Welcome from Savannah Ga. My wife and I just purchased a Rockwood 2715VS love it. I pull it with a F150 5.0 with a tow package. I get 9.5 to 10.5 mpg at 65 mph.

Thanks for the info Kentuckian! But now I am still confused. I have higher weight levels with my Expedition than you do except for the cargo level, which is about 181 pounds lighter than yours. Are you able to pull it okay with the F150?
