The Bigfoot 25/27.5 should still be within the OK range for some modern half-ton pickups as well. Going 3/4 ton keeps things simple since most or any configurations/options will do, but a half-ton with the right packages also has enough payload. Especially the newer aluminum-body F150s that can have a payload of over 3000 (!) pounds.

While Ford does have a high payload truck, it is extremely rare, you really will have to order it. Only comes in a couple of orientations too. People mistake the tow package with the high payload, totally separate.

On my F150, the tongue weight of the 25 foot BF would put me over my truck's rating. Part of the problem is I have a more deluxe model (Lariat) with lots of options. The higher up you go in the product line, the lower the payload.
