Highland Ridge Light & F150?

Anyone pulling a Light with a F150? I saw a LF297RLS yesterday...not bad. They are set up to be pull with newer 1/2 tons so I thought I could use my current truck for a little while and go to a 3/4 ton later. That way I could spread out the cost a little. Also maybe a less expensive gas 3/4 would work good with a lighter trailer...?

All the other 5th wheels we liked would need the bigger truck before the trailer.

Hitch weight, empty, is 1420 lbs according to the website. If you start adding stuff (water, food, clothes, chairs, etc) you have to assume 25% of that will be hitch weight. My truck has 1900lbs of payload, which is higher than many half tons, but not as much as some of the heavy duty packages. But, with that light 5er you would be eating up your payload quick with your family in the truck. It is a nice looking rig though!
