It's not a claim it's the truth. For the most part it is true 99% of 1/2 ton trucks are not rated to tow 5th wheel trailers. wrote:


This comes under internet myth. And it doesn't have to be what you call a rare F150.
Ford F150 7550 gvwr and 4550 rawr 3.5 EB or 5.0 v8 is just under the F150HDPP in load carrying performance with 2100-2200 lb in the bed payloads.

And of course GM 1500 twins with the NHT option has a 7600 gvwr and 4300 rawr 6.2 or 5.3 engine 10 speed tranny.

We have small 5th wheel trailers out for any size 1/2 ton truck like these ....1/2 ton towable.
Every one of these can be pulled by a 1/2 ton truck with the proper specs and a couple can be pulled with even a std duty 1/2 ton truck.

You don't have to convince me. I'm not looking to tow with a 1/2 ton. But maybe you can convince the OP and others in this thread .
On paper there lots of options but when one actually sets out to find these options they are scarce.
