I have a lot of RV towing experience, about a 1/4 million miles in just over two years as an RV transport driver.

But I was using a Ford F350 crew can dually long bed with a 6.0L turbo diesel then:



At a rest stop, eastbound on I-70 in Utah.

I really miss that truck!

Now that would be a good puller.

I remember when you first checked in on the forum you were thing of adding a supercharger to the Jeep. I was curious to se how it would do towing. I think you made the right choice with the f150. I would wager the same trip with the new tv would cost you have the fuel. Did you get the new 5.0 the 3.5 turbo or the 6.2 in the f150? I heard all the new engines are enbeleivable.

Good choice for TV. I am always amused at people trying to pull trailers with "pedal cars". They always try to give the appearance that "this is no problem at all", but the poor little engines are maxed out 99% of the time.

I don't have the ultimate TVs either, but I have my choice of a 2001 Suburban, a 1997 Suburban, or a 2002 Dodge Q-cab, all 1500's and 4x4.

Happy camping!

Turbo chargers and super chargers add a lot of heat to an engine. While they add a lot of power and torque they also add a lot of heat and shorten drive train life.

I have to disagree with you here. Intercoolers (which most modern kits include) reduce heat and therefore, additional stress. Todays engines after boosting require tuning through the ecu to get the air/fuel ratio right when modifications such as super/turbochargers have been added. If this is done correctly, no additional wear or stress on the motor occurs. When properly set up, mildly boosted and properly maintained, a boosted engine can run as long (with more power) as an unboosted one.
