    Just picked up a 2018 F150 FX4 SCREW 3.5EB tow package etc.....

    But Ford really is misleading. Tow chart says it can tow 10,700# as equipped but factory hitch is only rated at 5000# and 500# tongue weight which the majority of wake boats exceed.

    Even my brothers 18 F150 with max tow package rated for 12,700# has the same 5000# hitch.

    I doubt many wake boat owners use weight distribution hitch set ups.

    The fix was to simply buy a Curt class 4 hitch with a 10000# trailer weight and 1000# tongue rating

    The other problem with many 1/2 tons is payload, but not really a problem for boats.

    Absolutely a concern if the assumption of a 7100 lb trailer weight assuming a 10% tongue load.

    Truck weight + tongue weight + passengers+ gear fast approaches most 1/2 ton GVWs/Payloads.

    True, but getting right up to the limit isn't a problem. It's just something most don't think about when thinking about towing, and truck manufacturers sure don't tell you when advertising "tow ratings".

    I don't think there's a 1/2-ton out there that is rated for the payload that a 10k+ trailer will put on it.

    Dead nuts true, 1/2 tons are not the towing monsters that OEM marketing makes them out to be.

    I only caution you all have correct equipment and understand the limits even when an OEM claims 11-12k# towing capacity on a 1/2 ton.
