A park model is like a mobile home, so no way I would subject my truck to that. If you can afford a park model, you can afford to have it professionally moved.

Seasonal site. It will never leave that spot once in place. The only thing that I would be worried about is the tongue weight. Overall weight is fine.

Let somebody move it that has the liability insurance to do it. If you do it and overweight I would think you assume all liability.

One time deal. Would you?
My parents used to own a RV dealership and we were tasked with moving a 39ft park model one day. My old mans 3500 series chev had the hitch bent from the weight. We ended up using my uncles JD tractor to move it. I wouldn't recommend using your F150.

Damn. /\

That trailer is 1600 lbs on hitch and 10000 lbs in overall weight. 5 TONS! If you'd tow that you are begging for something bad to happen. But if you do, get a picture, because we all want to see it!

You guys do realize if optioned correctly the F-150 can be rated to tow 11300 lbs right? So the 10k is still well within the limits IF the truck is optioned correctly.

Not technically 'being towed', but I can assure everyone, it was hauled there...

From a recent winter camping trip.

We had a 'little bit' of shoveling to do to enjoy our nightly campfire.
