How much weight is on the hitch? I tow a 7000 lb trailer with about 900 on the tongue. Add 500 lbs of driver and wife, and we have 36 lbs of payload capacity available. Even with HDPP, it appears you are asking a lot of that F-150.

Meaz shows true statesmanship in being bested and thus stepping down from the mantle. (Although Mr B was also hot on his heels, but with a dose of seemingly reluctance?)

One thing for sure, towing with the mighty Ecoboost is well represented here. (however, I'm not nearly as brave as some of Yaw)

So I’m sure the 5th wheel is over weight in the payload area for the F-150 but also isn’t payload measured with a full tank of fuel and 2 passengers at 150 each? I have read this somewhere and everyone keeps saying once that add a full tank they have 20lbs left so they cannot go anywhere.
Of course scales would be the best way to do this, I’m just doing the math to make sure I won’t be overweight before making a purchase.

Payload is a made up calculation. It is GVWR - whatever the truck weighs. The Tire and Loading stickers are simply an anti-lawsuit reaction to the Explorer/Firestone debacle. Thirty years ago, payload was whatever you could get there.

If you truly want to stay within weights, you would need to load your people, fuel, generator, tools, bikes, etc. . . that you intend to carry up and go to a scale. Subtract the total from GVWR and the axle totals from the GAWR (front and rear).

The truck weight is measured with all fluids & full tank of gas.
Than add these...

30 years ago they still had max psi cold/load limits on tires. I assure you .. payload numbers are quite real, not made up

A little research or a look at an old Ford door pillar will assure you those stickers didn't exist.

Considering that there is no HDPP available in a short box super crew, this regular lariat is WAY over published payload numbers. That tail can wag the sh!t out of the dog. Unsafe, even if it is a “stable” fifth wheel.

The gvwr, gawr labels all existed. The only difference is today the manufacturer did the maths for the consumer and states a simple number. The labels were there..
