Eagle HT 27.5 rlts and half ton trucks

Hi all- was curious who has a 2015/2016 Eagle HT 27.5 rlts and an F150 to tow with?

I am looking for experiences, issues, etc... towing with a half ton. I currently have an 2012 F150, with the tow package, but not Max tow. I live in FL (flat) so no worries with western rockies, etc...)

I am looking at purchasing a 2016 HT 27.5 rlts. I understand and respect the opinions of the tow police. I understand you can never have too much truck, etc...

Please chime in with stories.

thanks
Dan

First off we need to know your truck's payload which can be found on the inside door jamb of the driver's door. That will be the determining factor with a 5th wheel and a half ton.

My front GAWR is 3600, Rear 3850. Payload is 1830 lbs, just 2 of us.

I am just wanting to know who has the combo and how it drives, etc...

I currently have a 27' TT and looking to upgrade.

I recall a member, Boubou, who was very active for a while but not so much lately. They had an Eagle HT and a Ram 1500. Can't be sure of the years.

Might be worth looking up her posts and seeing what their experience has been.

Again, I have not seen many posts recently from them but a PM will go to the email address on file which might reach them if you want to try to correspond directly.

Just my thought. Hope it helps. Good luck.

My brother in law tows this exact model with a chevy silverado 1/2 ton. He has no issues. Its not an F150, but kind of the same idea

It'll give me your vitals. Engine size, rear, coolers, suspension grade, etc etc.
