Yes it can but it does really depend on what type of TT you want to buy.
Do you need a slide out? 2 slide outs? For comparison, I have a 31' that has 2 slide outs that is considered an ultra light at 6,750 lbs. dry weight. As far as we could find, we only found 1 other model that was marginally lighter but the quality of that model was suspect. Other similar models the same length were 500 to 3,000 lbs. more.
You need to discover your wants and needs in a TT BEFORE you make that truck purchase as it is going to tell you how to equip the truck. As a fail-safe, going Max. Tow Package will assure you the 11,300 weight but do you really need it? Your TT will tell you that.
I won't get into the engine debate, it's been done to death. I will however layout a flat challenge to anyone in Pa. Come tow my TT with your 5.4 or 5.0 and then I'll let you do it with my Eco, I know which one you'll want in the end. And this ain't coming from an Eco snob, I've towed with other vehicles.
As for your needs, maybe I can help you decide that. If it is just you or you and a partner and you only want the basics, you may consider just a TT with no slides. If you enjoy a little more space, you will want a slide out. If you have kids that will be going with, 2 slide outs is VERY nice.
On some of the popular RV forums and at campgrounds, you will find many people who wish they bought both slides but what they all have in common is that they have kids, pretty much the only reason. Lastly, outdoor kitchens freaking rock! If you can find a model with it, get it! Bacon smells great being cooked in the TT in the morning, by noon, it doesn't smell so great. The convenience of the outdoor kitchen is invaluable and you never have to go far to get your favorite beverage.
