Galaxy - that trailer - loaded as you are loading it - will push the limits of your truck. You will need to have everything set up perfectly, and you could still end up being over a few of the limits. This is a trailer for a super duty if you want to make it safe and enjoyable - IMO.
I agree, you might be with in max tow limits, but are you with in tounge weight limits? F-150's are usually good about exceeding "rated limits" in controlled situations, however that does not mean it is safe. Most of the post are pretty dead on as far as adjusting your rig to match the load, how ever I am really wondering if you need a bigger truck. At least larger springs in the back to stiffen up the rear end to level your truck as well as improve steering control. Also listen to the advice on how your tailer is loaded. To control the trailer you need more weight in front of the trailer axle(it's not pretty when someone gets there *** handed to them by "trailer sway"). At the same time you need a stiff enough rear end to handle the tounge weight. Most importantly, you need the braking system to stop such a rig with control.
