The prior responses are correct, Payload Capacity with most 1/2 tons is the first weight limit to confirm. Not to say it isn't feasible, it's just that we all have different TV/TT loading habits.
To reduce the assumptions, I would take your F-150 under loaded conditions (fuel fuel, passengers, etc.) to a CAT scale and weigh it. Subtract the CAT scale weight from the GVWR noted on your driver's door. The remaining weight (Payload Capacity) is what you have for the "loaded" TT tongue weight and any other F-150 weight not accounted for at the CAT scale.
Figure a "loaded" tongue weight for the 27DSRL of 13% to 15% of the it's actual loaded weight. The published UVW of the 2014 27DRSL is 5,355lbs, but the actual Ship Weight will be heavier. NOTE: One JOF member found that his 27DSRL Ship Weight was 430lbs over the published UVW.
