As I just mentioned in another post on gas mileage - I LOVE my 2016 F150. It has the same engine and Max Tow package. It tows our 30 ft Fifth wheel beautifully. Feels very comfortable on the road.

I only towed a TT once with it - when I was taking it in for trade - but I really didn't notice it was behind the truck. It was SO much different (better) than towing it behind our previous TV.

Out of curiosity, what TT did you have and what fifth wheel do you have? I love hearing reports from people who have pulled with their 2016 Fords. These things are awesome when properly equipped.

The TT was a 19.5 ft Sunline - now out of business.

My 5th wheel and tow vehicle is in my signature below.

Ahh ok, maybe signatures don't show up on cell phones or something. I'm not seeing it?

Thank you!
That's a 9950lb 5th wheel. That's great to hear that you're towing it easily!

These 2016 fords are awesome. Half tons run over a massive spectrum of capabilities and the new lightweight fords are at the absolute top of that spectrum.

I'd have to look it up to be exact but in the high 2000a I think. Maybe 2650 off the top of my head. More with the max payload package? Don't quote me lol.

Not sure on the 2016s but it should be a bit higher with the lighter frame. My f150 is a 2014 4x4 super crew with eco-boost, max tow and heavy payload package and is rated for 1760lbs of payload.
