What's the curb weight on the F150? Figure its actual weight is probably a bit higher than that, but close.

Late model F150's typically run between 5000 and 5800, depending on cab style, wheelbase, etc., so you are probably barely ok. I'd use it and keep an eye out for an upgarde to the 10,000 lb model. Watch the classified here on irv2, ebay, etc.

Mike, I am curious about your f150. Is yours 4x4 or 2x4? I have a 2007 f150 2x4 with auto transmission and Ford dealer said that I could not flat tow it.
