A relative of my wife owns a 2.7L eco boost Ford (year unknown). He is a retired long haul truck driver and mechanic. He pulls a very large, stick built, 5th wheel (10,000 lbs, loaded) from Knoxville, TN to Southern CA every year, and has had absolutely no problems. He said each time he tows and stops to get gas, he has people come up to tell him his F-150 cannot pull or stop his rig, and he is being unsafe. He just laughs.

Personally, I would not drive his setup. But the F-150 he has seems to do right by him.
Update: I have to correct this. He has the 3.5 eco boost, sorry about that.
