1/2 ton payload

To all you 1/2 ton TV owners out there, what is your payload rating. We are shopping for a new TV, and all the salesmen want to say is it will tow 8000-12000#. When I ask if they can get me a TV with close to 1800# payload they look at me like I'm crazy ( I've done the research, it can be done).
The local Chevy and GMC dealers acted like they didn't want my business. I guess the search will expand.

2010 Ford F-150 XLT Super Crew 4x4 with Max Tow, 1649 lbs payload. Your are correct that payload capacity is the important number to know rather than towing capacity. Towing capacity is based on an empty truck with only a 150 lbs driver inside.

X2. Tongue weight of trailer (always more than advertised dry hitch weight) figure at least 13% of GTWR) eats up a lot of payload hence you'll be hard pressed to tow up to your actual tow rating when you have passengers in TV.

I usually find the online or print brochures are pretty clear about which combinations of cab/box, drivetrain, suspension etc. have which capacities for both towing and payload. Have been having lots of fun trying to figure out the best setup for my next TV (which is probably still a couple of years away - but I can dream)...
