2010 F150 Max trailer towing question
Guys I need some help on this one....I have the 2010 FX4 Supercrew 6.5. It has the 7700# GVWR and it has the Max Trailer Tow Package. The Trailer Hitch as per the specs in the MAX Trailer Tow Package is a Class IV. ( 2" receiver )
In the "specs" for this Truck in the 2010 F150 brochure, as well as specs online they state that the max loaded trailer weight that I can tow is 11,100 ( requires max trailer tow package ).
As far as I can tell, the Class IV hitch is only rated to 10,000 pounds MAX. In order to tow more than that you need a CLASS V hitch.
I was advised the same thing by my uncle on the weekend who has a Class V on his F350. He stated that the Class IV hitch on my truck is not rated for 11,100 lbs.
So what's up. How can the specs say max trailer weight is 11,100 lbs
SuperCrew 4X4 157 - inch wheelbase
5.4L 3-valve V8 with 6-Speed Automatic
GCWR - 17100
