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
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?
