how much does your crew cab F-150 weigh?

Do any of you late model F-150 owners here have real measured weights for your truck?...specifically looking at a short box crew cab and probably a few options such as a typical Lariat package.

I'm getting close to shopping for a replacement for my 06 silverado that is getting tired. I'm leaning towards a Ford this time...and a 4x4 so it can be flat towed.

I really don't need 4x4 but it might be kindof fun to have as a side benefit.

And I'm not really sure that I ever would set it up to be towed. We've found that we have gotten through just fine with the way we travel our RV without a Toad, and I recon doing it would introduce lots of other issues...(such as not fitting into parking spaces while en route)....but it might be nice to have the option.

Anyway, with only a 5,000# hitch rating on my RV I'm limited. The published numbers for most all the variations show curb weights South of 5,000# but adding the options...and typical stuff carried all the time such as a few tools, 1st aid kit, etc... I know it will be more than those published numbers....so I'm curious about your real word situation...your weight, your options, an approximation of your typical permanent load...just to get a better feel and reassurance.

On another forum I participate on, I asked this question. Didn't get any measured numbers yet, but I was pointed to this
https://www.caranddriver.com/ford/f-...50_2019/403562
which seems to adjust the curb weight depending on the trim packages...not every option, but I suppose it's close enough....but is it really correct?

thanks

If you are buying a brand new toad the shipping weight is on the invoice. Your sales man or his manager should be able to look that up.

My 2017 KR with all the options and 6.5 bed including 5th wheel hitch (added) weight is 5000 empty of driver and passenger

Tows very easily behind the 42GX Tuscany

the car and driver link says the 17KR has a curb weight of 4894#...
I can only guess that a 5th hitch might be ballpark close to 100#. Adjusting for stuff under the seat, maybe a few other options, etc.... so maybe that site isn't far off! Thanks

I figured it would be available for a particular truck. I wouldn't have though about shipping weight though.
At this point I'm just researching what brand/model/trim level I might want to look at, budgets, etc... next step might be to go test drive a few to see if they 'fit'...& at that point I could look into that specific number for sure.... if it happens to be a new one. Thanks for the tip

I haven't weighed mine, I have a 8,000lbs hitch, but everything I've read says just under 5,000lbs. If you are close, don't fill it up with gas, don't put any "stuff" in it, and you should be fine. A 5,000lbs hitch isn't doing to disintegrate at 5,001lbs. They have a healthy safety factor built in. I towed a 5,000lbs ford Expedition for years behind a Bounder that had a 5,000lbs hitch. I just tried not to put anything extra in it to press my luck. There were never any signs of wear or tear.
