Actually, there's quite a few 2021 F150 models that have 2200-2300 lb+ payloads, even much higher with a few packages.

Like I said, I'm in the same boat with a similar weight camper. I'm evaluating whether an F150 with one of the higher payload ratings, plus a couple suspension tweaks, might be enough for my needs.

I have the chance to get a 2010 Travel Lite 800 sbx for a good price. I have a 2008 Ford F150 Super Cab two wheel drive with a 6.5' bed. Trying to find out if these are a good fit.


Do you have any info on the weight of the TC? Also, do you have any details on the payload for your truck?


Hi, the camper weighs 1740 lb,s truck, Rear Axel GAWR 3800
Front axel GAWR 3450 GVWR 6700 That is all I have for now.

That enough for how much weight the truck can carry in the bed on the rear axle.
Actual scaled front and rear axle weights work best.
Many F150 owners report their trucks rear axle scales in the 2300-2500 lb range depending on how each truck is configured. This leaves approx 1300-1500 lbs for a in the bed payload.
Some folks mod the truck to carry more weight ie; higher capacity tires/wheels and rear spring pack help.
Fords F150 3800 lb rating is one of the smaller gawr Ford offers. Moving up is a 4050...4550...4800 rawrs.
The F150HDPP has the 4800 rawr and is good for around 2500 lbs in the bed.
Weigh the trucks F&R axles so you can figure a matching weight camper.
