2005 F-150 towing capacity
I need some advice.. I have a 2005 F-150 4X2 Supercab with a 145" wheelbase, 17 " wheels,5.4 L V-8 , 3.55 limited slip axle, and towing package.
I am pulling a 30' travel trailer weighing approximately 7000lbs dry. I pulled the trailer from Pa to Florida, through the West Virginia and Virginia hills and it pulled ok.
I'm heading back to PA soon and I want to put my 800 lb Harley in the truck bed. I'm confused with all I'm reading, the CGVWR is 14,500 lbs as I understand for my truck and the max towing weight is 8600 lbs. Can I add 800 lbs payload to the truck with two people and full tank of gas (35.7 gal) and safely tow the trailer?
I think I'm ok to go with the Harley in the bed and pulling the trailer but I'm hearing different from some experienced RV owners. I realize I wont be speeding up and hills but I think it should be ok going through the mountains. Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated.
