Ice,

Congrats!!! Hope all goes well picking the trailer up!!!

As for the F250, if you plan on ordering exactly what you want, also price a 350 out. You may be surprised at the very little price difference and you would gain a fair amount more payload.

Good luck!!!

I see this post is from October. How has it been towing with the 1500? We are considering a 28bhbe as well but we have a 1500 too.

Slick: The rig was ordered in Oct and just arrived today. We will be towing it with the F150 until we upgrade, hopefully within the next couple months. We will be watching our weights until then.

IOF...

Got the call today that our camper arrived this morning so I took a ride over to the dealer after work to take a look, dealer is RV One in Orlando, FL. I bet our trailers were built within a day or 2 of each other. They were surprised it got here this early as it was supposed to have been built this past Tuesday so they must be moving them out quickly.

It appears to have come in as ordered with al the custom requests from what I could tell from a quick walkthrough at their storage lot.

I hope your PDI went well today, we won't get ours for a few weeks, which is a planned situation.

Where did you order your Equalizer 12K from?

Our PDI was a little longer than intended as we had some issues with the remote which operators the electric awning/slide/stabilizers. Apparently it was never initiated at the factory so it took a good 40 min to get that fixed.

We're at a local campsite this weekend kicking the tires and installing some custom shelving.

One issue we are experiencing is with the shower as one side has a little dip, and after the water drains there is a puddle that remains. Might need to have the Service Center take a look it at. Otherwise we're having no other issues. Good luck with your pickup.

Our shower pan held a little water as well. Never a problem, but it happens.

Nice… I am curious how it tows with your F150 and how the Equalizer worked.

Did you get the Standard size Shank?

Would also be interested to hear about the shelving mods you are doing.

In regards to moving up to an F250/F350, you might consider waiting until later this year so you can get a 2017 with the redesign and beefed up frame and larger Gas engine choice.

I hope all goes well on the shakedown, I am sure the family is excited!

We have a 2015 BHBE and tow it with a 2014 F150 with the Ecoboost, heavy duty tow package and 3.73 gears (rated to tow 11,200 lbs). It tows just fine! You will get pushed around a bit if you are traveling at high speeds (70-75 which the Ecoboost will do no problem) but you certainly shouldn't be driving that fast anyway. As long as you distribute the weight properly (check CAT scales) you will be fine. Unless you are a full time traveler/camper, spending the money on a 2500/3500 TV that you use maybe 6-8 times a year seems pointless. Just my .02 cents
