I would highly recommend the 3:73 axle towing that trailer. I had an F150 with the 3:31, was not good with towing. The transmission labors too much, caused more heat since the converter works harder and builds more heat which also will cook the clutches cooler or not.

I have a 2010 f150 with the 5.4 3.73 rated for 9600lbs. I also have a 2013 jayco swift 267bhs. Dry 5700 and 7500 loaded. The truck pulls it fine but i definitely feel that im pushing the max with this truck

Thanks Machinist. I'll be leaving to Mt.Rushmore from Florida at the end of June. Trying to get the Expo, but if not available, I'll be taking the F150. Be safe..
