As anyone seen this 2018 unicorn

Hard to find. Iím looking for F150 with the max payload capacity and the max trailer tow package. Itís so hard to find. I was going to go with 250. But this setup would definitely tow my travel trailer thatís 30 ft and weights 8000 if fully loaded and tongue weight of 700lbs.

Find a truck with SuperCrew 157" wb and max tow package and 20" wheels. That gives you 13, 200 max tow, close to 1900 pound payload. The 20" wheels and 157" wb are critical, it's the only way to get the final upgrades. It also gives you the HPP frame.

Probably faster to order one than try to find one as there isn't many out there dealer lots because my guess is the only ones you will find are special orders that someone backed out on.

In my area, nearly all the 157" are on the dealer lots with the Max Tow Package.
157" = Supercrew w/6.5' bed. That is the longest bed on a Supercrew. You can get an 8' bed on the Supercab, if you don't need the extra interior space.

I have a 17 502 Lariat FX4 Supercrew 157" w/20's and 3.5EB. My payload sticker is under 1600#, but that's because the more junk it comes with....the less capacity is left for payload. Avoid heavy options (pano roof, power steps, etc) if you want a high payload sticker.

I believe the reason you can't find one, is because they don't make it. When I was ordering my 18, I wanted Max Tow + Max Payload. When the sales manager entered that into the order system, it kicked it out. I remember him telling me that it was one or the other, but not both (but I'm sure he really didn't know). But after the truck was ordered, I dug deeper and found that only 157" WB models can get Max payload and since I ordered a144" WB model could be why it got rejected.

Thats because HDPP requires max tow, so if he entered it separately it probably errored.

That number is incorrect, the max tow trucks are rated for up to 13,200. But just remember the truck has to be equipped with 20" wheels or else there is no frame or spring upgrades. That is per the order guide.

if its an xl or xlt probably 1700-1900lb. My xlt is 1850 with 302a, max tow, nav, screw and 6.5 box. Dealer should be able to get the dealer that has it to send a pic of the door sticker, don't believe them unless they can prove it with a picture.

Depends on what you have in the truck. my TW is about 1050 when loaded with crap and we have less than 500 lb or other crap/people in the truck and stay under payload. everything goes in the rear of the camper like the cooler and bikes.

Only way you are going to get higher is with a HDPP truck, which adds 800lb to the gross capacity to the truck and would bump the payload on the same truck to 2500-2700lb.

I think HDPP only adds about 600 pounds payload.
My 2018 HDPP/MTTP Lariat Screw has a payload of 2400 pounds.
I have no idea why these beasts are not more popular, because I was already ordering MTTP and LT tires it was less then a 500 dollar option!
