No white knuckle or oh **** moments. Semis and all manner of traffic passing.

This pic was a lunch stop at Ft. Stockton today.

Both units need a bath now. And we're ready for more!


Mine is setup with the nose down for the same reason. Nothing like towing up a canyon with the wind screaming and whipping around in all directions.

Did you go up the the road to Ft Davis and the observatory or to Balmorea? We take that trek once a year from Houston. That mountain climb is tough on your truck.

That drive is not passable towing anything larger than a pop up

Well, there was a bicycle race going on, so we might have made a good pace vehicle with the TT.
Lol

2016 Ford F-150 Super Crew 4x4, 3.5 Ecoboost w/tow package.



It's the largest vehicle that will fit in the garage (we drove it home and did a test fit before buying), and since we are only pulling a 2017 X213 at around 5000# (the truck is rated for 11,200 max), it does well. We have only towed from the RV dealer home, but that was 150 miles, mostly in a stiff Eastern Colorado crosswind, and with no WDH it drove great at freeway speeds.

2016 Ford F150 3.5L Ecoboost Supercrew, color is magnetic gray. Bought it almost two months ago, traded in my 2014 Nissan Titan Pro-4X, so I could fit our golf cart in he bed and for the creased payload and towing capacity. Finally got the TT hooked for a weekend trip this weekend with the family. Truck towed great, have the Blue Ox WDH. Loving the truck thus far.
