New Ford F-250

We purchased a 28BHBE back in Feb and thought we would try towing it with our F-150. After 3 trips worth of getting bounced around on the freeway by our trailer, we decided to take the plunge for a Super Duty. We upgraded to an F-250 Lariat this weekend with pretty much all the upgrades. It's definitely a smoother ride and we can barely feel our rig behind us!

Our experience was having to plan every trip to the T with our old F150 (max towing etc etc) regarding our packing the tt so we stayed within the 13-15% range . It was only 30+' long, and weighed no more than 7,500-ish pound loaded. The payload killed us.

We both REALLY wish we had the 3/4 ton to pull the last tt at the specs mentioned above. Sooooo grateful we could upgrade to the 3/4 ton to pull our current tt (much like your 28BHBE).

Congrats on the new truck! Your family will definitely tow safer with the upgrade that matches the rv you tow
