sorry, just tryin to help. Offering suggestions. That's all they are...suggestions. I've had about ever mix of tow rigs and daily drivers imaginable. What works for one, may not work for another, just sharing what has worked for me.
As far as sticking between the eco and the 5.4, I would prefer the ecoboost for your hauling/driving needs.
As far as towing, the turbos are going to help with torque to get your load moving. They'll also help on the highway and going uphill where a normal v6 would lack.
For daily driving, with the amount of miles you will be driving, the ecoboost will do a little better on fuel economy. But in my opinion, the big advantage in the ecoboost over the 5.4, is you will want to change the spark plugs in the 5.4 every 12-15k miles, or they'll break off inside the head, which isnt a cheap fix. I know you didnt ask about the 5.4, but figured id throw it out there lol.
Theres also plenty of tuning options for the ecoboost for mpg and towing
