    California Ford F-150 TV Commercial

    I have been lately been seeing a TV commercial by the California Ford dealers for the F-150 stating: "It can pull the largest trailers and boats" . Has the towing capacity been greatly increased on the F-150?? I did a search on You Tube for the exact commercial, but couldn't find it. I did find a similar commercial stating the F-150 could tow up to 13.200 lbs. Pretty impressive for a half ton, but still not up to our 5th wheels GVW. With a 5th wheel the standard 20% of the GVW on the pinbox, 13200 trailer GVW would be putting 2640 lbs on the bed of this 1/2 ton.

    I can just see the poor RV newbie who goes out and buys one of these trucks thinking "It can pull the largest trailers and boats", buys a big 5th wheel, then learns he does not have enough truck.

    Pulling is one thing. Safely stopping it at freeway speeds is another. Seen enough tails wagging the dog out there.
