If you compare apples to apples, the properly set up TT will have just as nice a "ride and pull" as a comparable size 5er. The TT will need a ProPride hitch to guarantee absolutely no sway

With your EcoBoost that has both max tow and HD payload, you're still limited to only a smaller 5er because of hitch weight limitations. But you can go up to a TT with a GVWR of around 10,000 pounds without being overloaded. So if I had your TV and my experience, I'd look for a big TT with GVWR almost 10,000 pounds and hook it up with a ProPride hitch.
Excellent! Thanks! Experience combined with fact. Doesn't get any better than that. Yes, the TT hookup takes more adjustment to get set up properly, but it can be done with the higher end hitch.
