Standard receiver that's part of the standard trailer tow pkg on my 2012 F-150 Lariat. The receiver is rated for 500 pounds max tongue weight with a weight carrying (WC) hitch, 1,050 pounds max tongue weight with a weight distributing (WD) hitch.

Several trailers, including 22' TT with GVWR of 5,600 pounds, enclosed CarMate 7'x14' cargo trailer with GVWR of 7,000 pounds, 5'x16' utility trailer with GVWR of 5,000 pounds, and 5'x10' box trailer with single 3,500-pound axle. Also a homemade 4'x8' box trailer that has one axle from a 1937 Chevrolet pickup.
Grumpy ole man with over 50 years towing experience. Now my heaviest trailer is a 7,000-pound enclosed cargo trailer, RV is a 5,600 pound Skyline Nomad Joey 196S, and my tow vehicle is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew.

Have a F450. Hitch is rated at 18,000 lbs and 5 wheel hitch is 24,000. Pull an 15,000 dump trailer on the hitch and an 18,000 lb 5er on the pin.

Dont have the numbers from the scale here but recollection says about 1100 on the reciever hitch and 3000 (more when the bikes are not in the toybox) on the 5 wheel pin.
