Coming from the Yukon Denali -> F150 I feel like I will be in a safer truck to tow the payload... Wouldn't you agree?
Sounds like some good advice given. The payload number makes me think you are looking at a Lariat 502A or above. Same payload as me. Buy the truck you like and then buy the trailer that fits or the other way around.

It sounds like your mind is made up. I think the only person to say "Go for it!" Is a salesman. Good luck.

I pull at 2017 Kodiak 291RESL (love the trailer) with my 2015 Platinum 3.5EB 4x4. It has a payload of 1495lbs. I put it on the scale and I am 100lbs shy of the rear axle max gross and good everywhere else. The truck handles it great.

I would consider new shocks in the near future. It will get into a bit of a bob over big bumps...but thats just crappy oem shocks.

Average Shipping Weight (lbs.) 6,807
Dry Hitch Weight (lbs.) 874
Cargo Capacity (lbs.) 2,093
Height 11' 1''
Length 32' 4''

You'll be fine if your trailer is

loaded and weight distributed correctly. Weight distribution hitch, air bags, electro trailer brakes, combined with the stability control works wonders !
