There is no doubt that the F150 will pull the load you are talking about.
What I would be concerned about is; will the F150 safely carry the payload? As with any 1/2 ton truck, this is their weakness. What is the F150's max payload capacity?
Add up the weight of the people, pets, and other stuff in the cab. Then add the cargo you carry along in the bed. Add the weight of the hitch and sway control to the tongue weight of the loaded trailer. Does that total weight exceed the payload capacity of the F150?
ps: the payload varies with different cab styles, bed length, engine, and gearing. Look at the charts for the specific vehicle. Advertising is deceptively inaccurate.
