You could, as long as this is a 4X2, but then your next real issue is going to be wheels. The wheels on your F150 are rated for only so much weight and XX PSI. Not fun exceeding either of those. Are you overloaded when loaded ready to camp? If your overloaded with just the camper, guarantee you will be farther overloaded when ready to travel.

Usually tires an wheels are the weak link. You need to know the weight of the camper ( loaded) an the weight carring cap of the wheel an tires

First determine what the axles are rated, then the wheels and finally the tires.

Generally speaking on most half tons - the axles are overbuilt for the vehicle - so that it doesn't become a factor;

The wheels can support as much as 55psi - so I wouldn't exceed it with the tires.

The tires - 265/275's are probably the heaviest I would put on a half ton truck.
