Pulled Trigger on new TV

I was previously towing my camper with a Chevy Silverado 1500, and it did ok, but after reading the different threads here, and doing some research, it was obvious that my 1500 was "challenged"....especially on the tongue weight for sure. After doing the math, I was over for sure....

So, I pulled the trigger and bought a 2016 Ford F250 4x4 with a 6.2l engine....It should pull my camper with now issues!!!

Congrats on the new purchase. Did the same change in April for the exact same rationale and have not looked back. Yes, gas mileage will not be the same , but the 'Comfort' level will be greatly enjoyed.

How much do you have to pay them to take your 6-liter ?

Currently looking at a 2017 F350 6.7 at work. Most likely will be in it in a couple months but it will be done. Looking at 5'ers this winter so....
