No practical experience. Were you referring to maximum weight of the towed vehicles? It would be pretty challenging to pull one with a View/Navion, based on curb weights I see in this chart.
https://www.fleet.ford.com/fleet-spe...150&brand=Ford



You might just be able to pull one of the regular cab, short bed, 4X2, with one. Add fuel, and any cargo to the truck at all, and you'd probably have to lighten the View/Navion to stay under the 15,250lbs GCWR. Also have to be careful not to exceed the hitch rating of 5,000lbs. I would think a 4X4 model would be too heavy.

I take it from you signature you towed your F150 with a 42' DP. I believe the OP was asking towing a F150 with a VIEW or NAVION.

Most all Sprinters have a 4200 pound weight restriction for towing. Not sure what an F150 weighs these days, but you may want to check.
