Sound sliek the proper way. Be allowing the suspension of the vehicle to move, you will take shock load off the trailer suspension.

As for the F150 part, read the post in this forum about towing with 1/2 tons. It should work, but will be slow. Don't try to use overdrive, get a decent brake controller and a weight distributing hitch and you'll probably be ok, as long as you don't get into a lot of hills..
