Probably because you got all the advice you needed above. Additional truck specs were not necessary.

Front Axle GVWR 3900
Rear Axle GVWR 3850
GVWR 7350


So if this is not enough info what else would be needed?
The rear GAWR looks light. Is that correct? I won't lend anything else, but that caught my eye and I am curious.

You are good up to,your tow rating which is conservative by ford. The engine and trans will tow like an animal but trailer should have brakes adjusted well and loaded appropriately. Then you will be fine. The Eco is the best f150 engine for your needs and will make you smile.

I took the GVWR from the door sticker, but should the front and rear axle ratting be equal to the 7350? And they total 7750, so am doing or looking atsomething in correctly?

No, the axles combined GAWR should be higher (typically) than GVWR I think, but I was curious about the rear GAWR. I thought the F150s were all north of 4000lbs, so that's why I asked. It has no real relevance to this, it was more of a curiosity. My '10 was 4050lbs. Would have thought yours to be right up there too.

If your still interested on some info, google the website changin gears. In that website, there are very good definitions to all these acronyms and good general understanding on the math. Theres also a nice calculator for you to input your numbers in and play with wait. Of course, like anything else, safety should be at the top of this endevour. Wish you the best!

Is this enough information for any of you to tell me what I can tow trailerwise, both a travel trailer and or a 5th Wheel?

Also interested in Tonneau Cover, in particular the AccessBrand, I had one on my last truck from 2006 through yesterday when I traded itin on this new one, and it was parked outside all of the time and it stilllooked and worked great. Anyone have other suggestions?



Thanks

I have the same truck and my max tow is 9600lbs

The GAWR on my 2010 Platinum is also 4050 lbs.

Strange thing that on my door sticker, the code is for a 3.55 rear end, but the window sticker lists a 3.73 rear end. Which should I believe?
Does the rear end ratio change the GAWR of the rear axle?
I don't really care since it tows like a 3.73 and gets good gas mileage like a 3.55.
But when towing the 5000 lbs travel trailer, it almost never shifts into 6th gear, so I suspect I've got a 3.55 rear end.

I'd take the door sticker over window sticker.

Then next time you are at the dealer or even go to the dealer now and askthem, there should be a tag on the rear-end identifying what it is, manyyears ago when I use to work on my one vehicle as a teenager there was a tagattached to one of the bolts telling you about the rear-end.

Smufrs is probable correct though, I to would think the doorsticker would be correct, but if you really want to know ask your dealer.
