I tow with a 2008 F150 Limited with a 5.4 liter. I usually tow a 28' Center Console on a tri axle 12,500 trailer. Also tow a 2 axle cargo trailer with up to 2 motorcylces or a 4 wheeler and lots of hunting gear. The truck handles both very well. I have towed the boat from massachusetts down as far as Norfolk, VA. I live on the Eastern Shore of MD. Never had a minutes problem but would feel better with a bigger truck on the steeper grades. I tow the boat about 30 miles every weekend on flat terrain with 0 issues. I tow the cargo trailer up to 140 miles weekly during hunting season with no issues either. I have always had F150s and have never had an issue as long as I towed in the guidelines. Ford has always provided good customer service as well.
