And you would be right, that would be a more capable truck, this will be just a trailer that i'd tow for camping with kiddos etc every so often till the grow older and wont want to come anymore. I'd like to stick with an F150 because it will be my daily driver. I can't justify an F250 diesel for towing a 6-8 times a year. The payload would be used up rather quickly i'd assume when you're towing camping stuff, bikes, dogs etc.

I was hoping to come up with Marlon Perkins and Jim, or Rat Patrol reference but best I can do is to say that you should stay in your shoes.

Know your truck's limitations.

A lot of the Lariat and Platinum trucks only have 1100ish lbs of payload,
Could you please tell me what "The combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed 1663#" sticker on my door jamb means. On the truck in my Sig below, a 2016 Platty Screw, 5.5 bed, 4x4.

Just curious.

It means exactly what it means. Combined weight of passengers and payload in the bed should not be higher than 1663lbs. Now, remember, this is a half ton pickup, so I wouldn't put more than a thousand pounds in the bed. That means your passengers can total up to 663lbs.

Thank you for the quick explanation. I was confused by the quote in my post above by Marshallr.

Where did the 1100# number come from?

Our friend with the ranch and no stock may have been being just a wee bit sarcastic in his post. ...and asking marshallr to expand upon his own post.

That said, your post is a breath of fresh air and commons sense. When was the last time anyone suggested what you're suggesting?

Forgot the

And I am being sincere. 1968 (or whenever it was. Might have been 1959! fer crissakes lol) must have been the last time anyone with any knowledge of loading light-duty pick up trucks reminded the consumer of what went where and more importantly, why. Not that you couldn't have 1200 lbs in the bed... Bottom line however is that today one must pay attention to Gross Axle Weight Ratings.

1600 is very little imho when you have a family of 4 + 2 large dogs that are 100lbs each. passangers and bikes easily get to around 900+lbs and then the trailer a tongue weight of a 6300lbs trailer at say 650lbs. YOU GOT NO MORE ROOM FOR BEEER!!!
