Many thanks!
No, lots of discussion on the f150gen14 forum. Very smart folks there who really know the F150. Apparently the gauge of metal used in the PowerBoost frames is slightly thicker than other F-150's. Other differences as well around extra structure mid ship because of hybrid battery and motor/generator. Way over my head.

There's always going to be someone ready to say a 2500 is the obvious choice, but not everyone wants to drive around an HD truck all the time when they aren't towing. Obviously a 2500 would tow better, but there are competing concerns.

So then there are two natural questions:
1. Can you stay under your limits with the F-150? It appears you should be able to. You're certainly taking the right approach, and you have the scale slips to show you're under the limits.
2. Does the actual, honest-to-god towing experience jive with the idea that you're within limits? Sometimes people make the numbers work but don't like the towing experience. Sometimes these people have a bad hitch setups, but sometimes they don't. The only way to know is to get it out on the road.
