New (to me) Tow Rig

Okay, I know it isn't a $75,000.00 one-ton, but for hauling the 2015 Whie Hawk 20MRB, it should be enough truck!

2017 F150 4 x 4 with the 2.7 EcoBoost, 2.7 (6900#) Payload Package, Tow Package, XLT Sport Package, Back-up assist, Factory Tow Mirrors (that's like finding a unicorn) and the best part, only 8700 miles on her!

Congratulations on your new toy! The GVWR on a 2015 White Hawk 20MRB is just south of 6000 lbs, so if you have the trailer loaded right, your new ride should handle the towing just fine. With the smaller 2.7 EcoBoost, you might go a little slower pulling hills but that shouldn't be a problem.

Nice Murff. I also have the sport package with the floor shifter and console. I really like that design.

Nice truck! Very similar to my 2016, except I got the 6.5ft box. The tow mirrors are definitely the way to go! Happy travels!

Really nice truck, Murff! Talk about a unicorn, a 2017 with less than 10k miles? Great find.

Great truck - I had a 2016 F150 Sport with the 3.5 Eco and I have to say as far as torque goes she out pulled my current F250. I absolutely loved that truck but traded for the F250 simply because it was just a bit too little truck and didn't handle the weight of my 28BHBE as good as I would have liked. We are just under 9K loaded for camping...

Just curious what gears you have in the rear?

I think you should be okay with that. And, it's short enough that wind will be less of a factor.
