Mike,

Yeah, that particular F150 model is the exception to the 1/2 ton rule, most importantly the 2,650lb payload capacity. I friend of mine (dale2629 @ RV.NET) posted a review of his F150 EcoBoost at RV.NET, and he noted that he was approaching the rear axle limit with his set-up........., I guess it depends on how one loads their respective TV/TT combination.

Here is the thread at RV.NET that you may find interesting: http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fu...g/1/page/1.cfm

The big problem with Ford's ratings is they always throw a weak link in there somewhere. The F150s that are rated for 11300# towing have a wimpy hitch rated at on 1130# tongue weight. Adding insult to injury is the fact the hitch and rear bumper are an integrated assembly. Yeesh!

Another monkey wrench that gets tossed in is if one is running full payload on the truck, the GCVW rating will be exceeded before one reaches the full towing capacity (that one I could live with).

Btw, the SuperDuty gets the same inconsistancies.

I'm still strongly considering an F150 HD Screw but I need to find out if there is any practical way to beef up the tongue weight ratings on that stupid hitch first.

yup, it is rated for 8200 lbs....but I wouldn't do it. My trailer GVW is 5500 lbs then you have account for the passengers and cargo.
