@1911falcon, I had originally thought that you had the truck and then bought the RV. A lot of RV dealerships are irresponsible and just want sales. Sure, your half ton will put this 10k lb trailer! Sign here.

Go to RV forums and research real world experience.

Good luck!

Nothing stopping you from doing it but $$. What motor do you have? You can tune the 3.5 or blow the 5.0 and it'd be a better use of $. Trans clutches are still the weak point though.
I have the 5.0 I do not tow so it is plenty of motor. I also do not like the idea of having to turbo/supercharge a small motor to make it work.

I toyed with the idea of adding the Ford supercharger, but I figured the light rear end and my handling ego would have given me problems breaking loose, for instance , on aggressive acceleration during a high speed pass. My Z06 pops them loose at 90 even with the racing tires on it. I don't even think about driving the Z06 in the rain, although skiing can be exhilarating at times.

Of course growing up would also solve the problem, but at 72 I cannot remember how that is done.

My time at the track has made me better at handling those situations, but I am definitely a long way from prime time and I must respect that. Ego be damned.

Let me put it this way. Your truck weighs 5153 LBS empty per stickers posted. 2000 LB tongue weight puts you over your 7050 GVWR @7153 LBS. Now add people and luggage and you exceed your GVWR by 500+ pounds. It’s illegal. Cannot be done legally. Black and white. Changing springs or hitch doesn’t change that.

I get your frustration, there should be truth in advertising laws about realistic towing capacity in trucks. The only way an F-150 is towing 14,000 LBS is on a stripped XL with a WDH and a giant cinder block on a flat load trailer strapped with the weight over the rear axles. AKA: NEVER. An F-150 cannot tow more than 9,000 pounds realistically on any given day. The irresponsible marketing on Ford (and everyone else’s part) gives a false sense of capacity. These trucks don’t have it man. You are out of juice with this platform.
You could not have explained that any better.
