Second the remarks from billeppo! The F-150 with V6 3.5 Ecoboost is a good hauler - factory trailer package is really thorough with brake controller, traction assist, and tow/haul gearing shift points. We pull an 05 Safari 22, which is not terribly heavy, but I like about a 50% reserve. That way you just won't be having to explain deficiencies, because nothing bad will have happened. Remember that original AS were lighter, and designed to be pulled by the family car or a light truck, but at much reduced speeds, in less intense traffic.

Hmm...
My 30' Classic has 8,800# on the wheels at the Cat scale.
Assuming 880# tongue weight- underestimating- total weight 9,680#.
We do tend to carry lots of clothes, food, and dishes.
