I agree with turbo respecting your towing capacity (questionable). Find out if you have the 3.73 rear-end or 3.54. If 3.54 you will have some tranny heat issues. If 3.73 and a good distribution set up your truck will tow. Still watch your tranny heat expecially in high country and long halls. I do not recommend ever travelly with either of your holding tranks full. I had an f150 3.73 rear end 4 dr rated 8900lbs and pulled a 29.5 cougar dry weight 6900 lbs never had a problem.
Currently pull a new 32 flagstaff dbl slide but upgrade to the new ecoboost FX4 F150 rated for 12,500lbs no issue through the smokies last summer
