Hey I'm new to the Forum but I have a couple questions I want to address with people who can "enlighten" me on the subject. I have a 2013 F150 EB SCREW max tow package, 3.73 gears etc. I am in the market for a travel trailer and some of the weights when you add the shipping weight plus the carrying capacity are between 8500 and 9500#s. Some of the tongue weights vary from 750-950#s. I was wondering if anybody has any setups similar to this and if so how are they accomplishing it I.E. what WD hitches, air bags if needed, etc. My ideal set up is one of these travel trailers PLUS being able to haul my 4wheeler in the bed. I don't want a toy hauler because the wife is picking the trailer and she has elected not to get a 5th wheeler solely for allowing me to put a 4wheeler in the back so everybody is happy. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks

I think it's going to be tough with that criteria. Figure 950 for trailer, 450 for the atv is 1400 lbs. plus you and wife is probably another 250-300. Any kids or passengers? The only way I see it working is with a toy hauler.

You'll likely max out your payload capacity by putting the the trailer weight + the 4 wheeler in the back. I'd get a toy hauler travel trailer. It doesn't have to be a 5th wheel. Once you put your family and gear in the truck with you I think you'll be well over the payload. I've got a 37 ft Crossroad Z1 toy-hauler 5682# dry & GVWR of 9494#. I haven't towed it with my motorcycles yet but even if I loaded it to the max I'd be within the limit of the hitch. Def. use the WD hitch tho.

Good Morning, Can't address the ATV in the bed part. BUT! DW & I have a itty bitty litlle teeny weeny XLT 4x4, Ecboost, Max tow, HD, 157", 3.73, 8200 GVWR. It weighted 6200# w/ me & 36 gals of gas right from the dealer, with a Payload capacity of 2172 (door sticker). Ready to tow, it weights 6535#. Still, 1665# of payload capacity left. It had been towing a 31' 8600#, 1065 TW TT using a Husky Centerline W/D hitch. It's dragged that trailer all over the Rockies & northwest part of the US. Has no air bags or helper springs. It now tows a 26 SAB 5er, still no airbags or helper springs. Averages 9.6-10.4 towing.

If you want a Toy-hauler, go to the F-250. The F-150 with 3.73 including Max Tow Pkg will be at it's limit with a 950 lb tongue weight (based on 10% of 9500) and when you add passengers, and cargo to the truck, you may exceed the 1440 lbs of the F-150. My opinion,...Don't do it! Go for a lighter TT (around 6500-7000) and you will be safer and happier.

If it has max tow i believe it has increased gvwr so payload cap 1950#
