A plain Eco-Boost might be a little short to do the job appropriately. It should be equipped with the Heavy duty payload & Max tow packages. This will give you 10 ply tires also.

I would be surprised to hear that you found an Eco-Boost with those options for $20,000

All depends, each of us has different ideas, requirements, situations. Look at your gross trailer and tounge weights. Then look at the towing spec sheet from the truck MFG, not any other. Buy the truck that gives you 30 to 50 % reserve capacity over your load. You will not be sorry. Also make sue you like to drive it. Hard to have a good day driving one you don't.. Happy Trails

I have a 2015 F-150 3.5L Eco towing a trailer that loaded is between 7,500 - 8,000. My honest opinion, you should be asking how long will your drives be, and are you towing in the midwest, or hilly/mountainous areas? I believe our setup is the perfect balance/trade off of using it as a daily driver, and pulling for 2-3 hours on weekends, with the occasional long 6-8 hour trip a year. When cross winds are above 15, we do have to slow down to not feel uncomfortable. That being said, in a couple years I do plan on upgrading my 2010 F-150 to the new F-250 with the 7.3L Gasser. =) My better half got the 2015 F-150.
