Thank you.
Check your tow rating numbers again. I think that 12,200 is the maximum for the F-150. But that requires the 3.5EB and the 3.73 axle ratio if I'm not mistaken. Towing safely is more than having enough HP. The truck has to be able to pull and control the load. If something goes wrong at highway speeds I don't think an F-150 is heavy enough to control the trailer. If I was routinely towing more than 7-8 thousand pounds I would move up to an F-250.
