Tow ?

I have a 2013 F150 with an 8 cylinder and I'm pulling a 29ft jayco jayflight (empty) I'm looking into buying a bigger truck but this is what I'm using now. Is it a bad idea to pull this rv with my truck?

Cant really answer without knowing weights and ratings for your truck. It would help to know tthe trailers:

Tongue Weight
Trucks Max Tongue Weight
TRailer Weight
The Max Trailer Weight for your truck
The Max Cargo Weight for your truck

These numbers can be different on every trailer and truck depending on options

The truck's gear ratio is important, too. And which V8 is it? And does it have the factory tow package? (Probably does.)

I would like to ask how far and how often you need to tow?

Is this just a one time short trip or something you need to do long haul?

Any steep Grades? All flat open highway?
