New tow vehicle

My F150 struggled pulling my 26BH through the Ozarks this past deer season.

I don't think that'll be a problem going forward.

Nice truck there. Just curious what year was your F-150 and what engine?

Was your F150 a 5.0L or Ecoboost?

The F150 I traded in was a 2013 XLT 4x4, Supercrew cab, 6 1/2 foot box with a 5 liter engine and just the regular tow package. It pulled the 26BH great for the most part but when I got into longer grades at 2 degrees or better it was just tough on her.

Also, when I made my trips last year I was headed out for 10 days of real boon docking, so my two 42 gallon water tanks were full and I was loaded with hunting gear for a 10 day drip. I didn't exceed the GVWR for the TT, but I was loaded.

My wife was talking about towing the TT to Virginia in the future since our son is stationed at Langley and while the F150 might have been able to pull it over the mountains between Tennessee and there I was worried about it holding up over time. We would make these trips loaded much lighter, but I just wasn't comfortable with the idea.

Besides, I've always wanted an F250.
