X2 on Donedroolin's advice above. I have the exact same trailer (same interior and everything - purchased in June 2013 for same price) and the 314BDS is an extremely heavy trailer (my UVW was 8180# from the factory and fully loaded is about 9600# - Tongue weight is 1200+ with the front storage compartment loaded). My advice would be be to get to a CAT scale as soon as you can to verify you're not over your F-150 limits.

Congrats on the new trailer (and talking the wife into it) - hope you like yours as much as we love ours

Congrats on the new camper. Just a couple of comments though. We've had several Expeditions with the 5.4 and tow package. They all came with a Class III hitch. Our trucks are larger, so I don't know what the 150 comes with but if it's a Class IV those are rated at 1000# TW. You're going to be around 1200 after you've moved in. That calls for a Class V. Finally, those brown caps are really handsome, but we've got two here in our park, neither is two years old yet and both are fading. FWIW, a former mechanic at a local Jayco dealer tells me "they all fade." Jayco authorized a repaint for one member of this forum, so you might want to discuss that with the dealer.
