Our new tow vehicle

We just purchased a new 2013 Ford F-150 XLT with EcoBoost and 3.51 electronic lock rear axle to pull our soon to be Jayco X23B. We were somewhat nervous about towing it with our 2002 Expedition 4.6L V8, so we took the plunge! I believe towing capacity goes up to 9500 lbs up from 6300.

IceOnFire, welcome to JOF. I just picked up a F150 FX4 Ecoboost, love the truck. I have not towed my x20e yet (still in my breakin period), but with 11k of towing capacity with the 3.73 backend I don't think it will have any problem.

I think you'll miss the Expedition but I might be a bit bias.
