I didn’t misunderstand you, Mike. You are making tow weight recommendations withOUT knowing anything about the F150 except it has a tow screen and seven pin connector. Not responsible.

I find many of these replies hilarious. For 2019:
Ford F-150 bumper pull, no receiver, ALL are rated for 5000#.
Most with the 53B option, receiver & wiring, are rated at 7000# or slightly over.
Tow package 53A tow ratings are all over the place, engine, wheelbase, axle ratio, payload dependent.
Max Tow package 53C is the only package to include the Trailer Brake Controller (TBC), but it is available as a separate option.
Yes, payload rating is critically important. Separate subject.
The Ford F-150 forum is the place to find more information about your truck than you thought possible.
The factory TBC is a bargain for near $100. You do have to reprogram the truck with Forscan or have the dealer do it. That way you can use your dash display to monitor trailer functions.

5800 dry? yep you're good. Go for the factory controller.
Life is not as difficult as many on here would like it to be. Do numbers and ratings count? sure, but there is no reason for the slavish devotion some members have for them.
Folks on here revel in telling you,that you are wrong. that your set up is dangerous,that if you follow your plan a train load of nuns and orphans are going to die a fiery death, solely due to your ignorant selfishness.

Your best bet is to ignore all these self appointed scholars and crack open the owners manual and vehicle specific resources .
These guys are not a bad lot,but many suffer from armchairexpertitis.
