The sticker on my door says not to exceed 1140 lbs payload capacity. I think the reason it is lower is it is a lariat 4x4.

cm11559ps, I will also take another look at the 28dsbh, but its dry hitch weight is 590 lbs versus the 29sqb of 540 lbs.

Bigbird, some of the F-150 Platinum's have a little less payload than my Lariat.

I have looked at the White Hawk 29sqb and just want to make sure I will be within the 1140 payload capacity of my 2012 Ford F-150 Lariat Supercrew 4x4 3.5L Ecoboost, 3.73. Ford says it will tow 9600 lbs. I have the standard tow package, NOT the max towing package. The yellow sticker on the 29sqb says it weighs 5814 lbs dry. Jayco's website says the DRY hitch weight is 540 lbs. In your honest opinions, can I tow this safely with a Reese Dual Cam WDH? In the TV will be myself, wife, 2 sons (age 4 and 6) and one row of firewood in the bed of the truck. Thanks in advance for your opinions.
I have no probs towing my trailer with my setup. Truck and trailer loaded i barely notice it on the hwy and I feel safe and comfortable with this setup. I think my payload was 1500 lbs for my truck 750 lbs per axle. Best thing to do is as mentioned above is go to a scale with your truck loaded. Your truck can tow the trailer no problem you may just want to balance the wood out between your trailer and truck....lol... or load your truck light and put your weight in your trailer and let the truck tow it. Anyhow I hope it works out for you. Also we went with the 28DSBH because of the 3 foot slide ( it opens up the trailer ) and the double bunks.

The best thing that you can do to increase your confidence on your future TT purchase is take your TV under loaded conditions (simulate going camping) to your local CAT scale, as mentioned by others.

(Your 2012 Ford F-150's GVWR) - (CAT Scale Gross weight) = Remaining weight available for "loaded" tongue weight and any passenger/cargo/WDH weight not accounted for in TV

Great information to know when shopping for a TT.
