RV Car Boat Typical trailers
Choose a towing vehicle wisely. Make sure the engine has enough power, the gearbox is capable of withstanding heavy loads, and the axle ratio is optimal for hauling.
The maximum weight that Ford F-150 is allowed to tow. The maximum trailer weights listed are only applicable for altitudes up to 3280 ft (1,000 m) above sea level. With increasing altitude the engine power and therefore the car's climbing ability are impaired because of the reduced air density, so the maximum trailer weight has to be reduced accordingly. The weight of the car and trailer must be reduced by 10% for every further 3280 ft (1,000 m) (or part thereof).
This is the maximum amount of weight Ford F-150 is rated to carry (engine, chassis, fluids, passengers, cargo, load - everything). It is often determined by the manufacturer and is indicated in the owner's manual or on the inside of the drive's door panel.
This is how much Ford F-150 weighs sitting on the curb with no driver, passengers, no cargo and no load with all standard options.
Payload is considered all the extra stuff you put inside your vehicle, whether it be passengers or a pile of rocks, that weight is all considered payload. You can increase it by:
The higher the power of your engine, the more weight your car can pull.
High torque is essential for towing because it allows you to pull the trailer at a lower RPM, reducing the strain on the engine.
The higher the axle ratio, the more power your vehicle produces, and as a result, the more weight this car can tow.
All-wheel or rear-wheel drive vehicles are best suited for towing, while front-wheel drive vehicles can haul much less weight.
Do not overload your vehicle while towing, as this can cause the transmission to overheat and fail. If your transmission has "Towing mode" - be sure to turn it on.
It is the same for all trims.
Turbocharged engines produce more power, so if you need a vehicle for towing, choose the one equipped with a turbo.
The longer your vehicle's wheelbase, the less likely the trailer you tow will push down on the rear axle and lift the front end.
It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a front axle of your Ford F-150.
It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a rear axle of your Ford F-150.
Inside the RV, you will find everything you need for a comfortable stay, even away from civilization.
If you need to transport your car over a long distance - use a car trailer - this method is much safer and more reliable than towing with a rope.
If you need to transport a boat, make sure you choose the right size trailer.
Whatever your needs, you can find a trailer that's perfect for you.

The towing capacity is actually a the vehicle's greatest volume of weight that it could safely tow. This info can normally be seen on a sticker located within the driver's door close to the door latch. The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is definitely the highest functional weight (including cargo and passengers) and really should not be surpassed. Generally speaking, the body weight of the trailer being towed is usually recommended to stay within 10-15 percent of the GVWR.
Down the page, the details about the towing capacity of the 2015 Ford F-150 with all trims and generations.

The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) has developed the J2807 set of recommended practices. The tow test procedures designed by the big brains at the SAE consist of a series of rigorous real-world challenges to determine the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of a vehicle and trailer combination.
