F150 Whitehawk Summit 27DSRL

Hi all. Looking for comments and suggestions. Getting ready to purchase a 2014 WhiteHawk Summit 27DSRL. I will be towing it with a 2010 F150 SCrew, 11500 tow capacity. I currently tow a 22FB without any problems. I feel I should be okay with weight. Any comments would be appreciated.

Just watch the Whitehawk's Tongue Weight + WD Hitch, TV Cargo and People, to ensure you are with in the F150 Cargo Carrying Capacity. I would imagine that you will be able to make it work no problem, but Cargo Capacity always seems to be the "gotcha" with 1/2 ton PU.

The short bed on the Screw helps me keep the cargo weight down.

I found 2010 F150 specs online. The max towing capacity listed is 11300, which won't be a problem with your WhiteHawk. But, as Clubhouse posted payload is the $64000 question. Looking at the chart your truck's payload capacity is either 1870 or 1990 lbs. Dry tongue weight on the 27DSRL is 610 lbs. but if you load her to gross capacity (7500 lbs) the tongue weight could go well north of 900 lbs. So with a full tank of fuel, passengers, and whatever you might haul in the bed, don't know where that would leave you. No expert on this stuff to be sure, but that's the numbers I found. I am sure you'll enjoy the trailer, we have a 2013 DSRL, but we're draggin' it around with an '05 Ram 3500 diesel. Not quite a "I hardly know a trailer's back there" experience, but close. Enjoy your new rig.

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.

Hmmm...I was heading to the dealer to buy that model until I stopped at a cat scale and weighed my 2013 ram 1500....too much trailer for my half ton truck (payload). Got any pics of ur rig hooked up?

Click on my Album that has the official F150 towing specifications for the 2012, I would think that the 2010 should still be about the same. The chart is based on Truck Type, engine, axle ratio.

Just curious, which "weight limit" are you over by 400lbs?
