Default 2013 5.0L 3.73 towing Weekend Warrior FS2500

Does anyone have or know someone who has experience towing this trailer? its a 2007 Weekend Warrior FS2500 Superlite. (4310 lb Empty 8000 lb GVWR) according to the Ford Towing Capacity chart (http://www.ford.com/resources/ford/g...rv&tt_f150.pdf) my truck with the 5.0L, 3.73 gears, could tow 9300# which is much more than what the trailer is rated at. by the look of it i should be ok towing this trailer, but i want to hear from someone who has a similar setup on how it feels behind the truck. Im going to be looking at this trailer this weekend at a local dealer, im hoping they will let me hook it up to my truck to see how it feels. any info helps!

I have a 2012 Supercab with the 5.0 and 3.55s. It hauls my 29ft 5500 pound trailer around the Adirondacks just fine.

I am not sure what the trailer loaded weight is. I doubt if it goes over 6500, even with all our gear in it.

im never going to max out the rating on the trailer. my GF and i have a polaris ACE and a raptor 660 + gear. we ususally wait to fill up the water tank till we get to or close to our camp spot. so we're never carrying the 1000# of water up and down the grade. at most we will have 2000# of stuff in the trailer. im hoping it will be ok.

1459 lbs. I believe the trailer is rated at 800lbs tongue weight, plus me (250) plus my gf (120). Most of our gear will be in the trailer so I think I should be ok.

Make sure you have a weight distribution hitch.

That's number 1 on my list of things to get for the trailer. I have leveling bags installed as well.
