I guess I will go into the details. I can purchase my current vehicle when the lease is up. Currently, Ford is running 0% financing and they have some 18s left on the lot but all have the shorter wheelbase and I can get it for a lower price than a 19. Even though the 18 is more money, because the financing rate is zero, for a little more money each month I can be in a new vehicle with no miles and a warranty.
If the 12 inch shorter wheelbase is going to be a drastic difference I will stick with my current vehicle.

If you want to stick with a F150 I would consider getting the MaxTow and/or MaxPay package considering the size and weight of your unit. I am under the understanding that the MaxPay is only available in the 6 1/2 ft bed.

Both vehicles have the Max Tow package with the 36 gallon gas tank and 3.55 rear axle.

I have approximately the same trailer and the shorter wheelbase Ford. I bought my truck used and was looking for all the extra towing and payload capacity and all I could find was the shorter wheelbase. Although on paper, I should be able to do everything right with it, I think I would have preferred the shorter cab, longer box and wheelbase. Not haveing the latter configuration to compare the two, I couldn't give you first hand knowledge but all the literature and blogs support the benefits of a longer WB when pulling that long of a trailer. IMO

I have a short bed 2014 f150 EcoBoost. Pulls my 271RL, 31ft with no problem. The newer f150 EcoBoost pulls even more weight. Around 13000lb. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.
