Welcome to the Dark Side.
Congrats! I don't think you'll regret it.
Nice. You're not messing around when you go from a pup to that!
Its definitely different. My gas mileage dropped about 10mpg while towing it lol.
Nice looking trailer, I hope you have many fun years using it.
When I moved to the darkside my mileage plummeted too. My F150 has to work a bit now!
Thanks, it is giving the F150 a workout for sure.
Congratulations that is a big jump, enjoy.
Congratulations and “welcome”!
Nice! What you loose in millage you will make up on a bigger fridge, freezer with ice and some room for your stuff. Now since you dont have enough stuff you need to buy more stuff! Looks big whats the weight on it?
Yeah I can deal with the mileage drop, it will be really nice to have all the extra stuff I need to buy
Its 33 1/2 tip to tip, 6580 dry with a 840 tongue weight, so it a pretty heavy beast.
Looks like a lot of trailer for many F150s....Be careful and enjoy.
It really is, I have the max tow package but that is still a lot for the truck.
Welcome to the Darkside…
We have Ice Cream Sammiches in the freezer
I now have a freezer for my own ice cream sammiches
Congratulations! If you haven't already get a Good weight distribution hitch and take the time to get it dialed in correctly.
We have a similar size Keystone and my F150 pulls it just fine.
I did get a new WD hitch with it that has sway control and all that. They set it up for my at the dealer so I assume it was setup correctly. My truck has a 6 inch lift which made it a little more difficult for them to get it dialed in. They showed me the difference in squat by putting the trailer on the truck without the bars connected, then with them and there was a big difference. I have only pulled it once and that was just from the dealer to my house which was only about 15 miles. It seemed to pull fine and the truck didn't really struggle, but I definitely know its back there.
Yea, its a bit more then a pup. Mext is getting used to being passed by 18 wheelers. It sucks in your trailor, lol. Lots to learn and buy! Extra hoses, stuff for the tolet! Lol. Its a whole new ball game. I like it so much more , especially with a kid in tow. Just makes life simpler.
All the extras are what I like about it though. I like learning the different ways of doing things and facing the new challenges of getting it through a tight CG and into a tight spot, learning the sewer and all that. That's the fun part for me. The wife likes having a toilet and shower. Lol
What is the payload rating on your truck?
