This guy gets it. An F150 with a 1900# payload capacity running at 1800# is not remotely close to an F250 with a 2K payload running at 2200.

True, but 1800# of F250 payload is not even close to the same as 1900# of F150 payload in the real world.

Me too. 15K A/C's usually draw 10-15A, depending on how hot it is. My generator has a KW indicator, and it rarely goes over 3000 with this camper...unless I'm powering a lot of stuff.

Will it be safe? Probably, if you are a conscious driver.

Will it be a relaxing tow? Definitely not.
