Open the front driver's door and look for a sticker on the body with a bunch of information on it. Find the letters "GCWR" (Gross Combined Weight Rating), and the number following them. Subtract 8500 (estimated truck weight, wet and loaded), and the difference is the maximum 'safe' payload/ trailer weight that Ford said it could haul.
There are several other variables for that, such as type of trailer being towed (fifth wheel, bumper pull, etc...), how it's loaded for proper tongue weight, etc, but that's getting unnecessarily detailed just to sell a truck.
