I just checked, my sticker is white and it says GVWR 6800#It also has a front GAWR and rear GAWR number. I do have a tonneau cover and it does have a bed liner. I bought the truck used and the window sticker shows both items on the spec sheet. I do plan on carrying chairs and a cooler and also looking at 1 or 2 small inverter generators. Thanks for your feedback and responses!

Maybe the window sticker shows your trucks payload.... Look again in the drivers door jamb (or on the door itself) for: http://www.f150forum.com/attachments...on-sticker.jpg

If the loaded tt weighs ~8000lbs, you could have a tw of ~960-1200lbs (12-15%of loaded trailer weight). Some trailers like more, others are happy at the lower end. But you should be somewhere in that area for a safe, stable tow. Having to light of a tw can, and usually causes sway to happen.

As for your truck with the 3.13 gears towing ~8000lbs, hard to say. That is something you will have to see what your truck is rated for, and how it does.

Is the tonneau cover a fiberglass or vinyl model?

Once you get the truck and trailer loaded I think you're going to find you are over the weight requirements.... One of the members should be along shortly to give you the CAT scales are your friend lesson (he's spot on).

The gearing of that truck is pretty weak for that load so I hope you're sticking to the flat lands.

If it were me... I'd want a better equipped truck for that trailer.
