Newbie with a Burning Question
Forgot to mention, our TV is a Ford F-150 Ecoboost, 10800 rating. We are under that by a good margin, and, the truck handles our rig with ease. A Hensley or similar hitch will eliminate sway when towing, and give excellent weight distribution to the tow vehicle. Your truck is a little light, but, if you don ' t want to trade, consider some aftermarket modifications. Springs, tires, oil and transmission coolers, will enable your truck to better handle the load you envision.
Keep in mind though, the closer you get to the manufacturers rating, the quicker you wear the truck out. So, even though you may think keeping the truck is less expensive, your maintenance and repairs will be more than the cost of a trade in while the current truck is in newer, better, less worn condition.
