Ranger431..is there any reason you asked...I noticed you had been using the Hensley hitch...The Hensley arrow was what I was considering..I have the original Reece Dual cam set-up and it's a chore to say the least...
Any recommendations would be graciously received.
Cheers

I tow my 32 BHDS with f-150 3:73 5.0L equalizer 1200lbs it tows very nice with this setup ! A lot of people on this forum seems to have very big trucks for no reason.. I knows some contractors that tow 10000 trailers behind f-150 driving 15000 miles a year with no problems...

Good luck -- be safe

You obviously don't agree, but I don't think F150 and 32BHDS is NOT a good combination.

I have a big truck and happen to think its for a great reason. Primarily so it can do the job it was built to do and more importantly to give my family and I every possible advantage when being on the highways.

Buy a 3/4 ton and a diesel at that. You will thank yourself later. A half ton truck is basically a car.

I tow my 32BHDS with my Excursion. I also have a 2014 F-150 with the Eccoboost engine. Even though the F-150 has the tow rating for my TT it is small compared to my Ex.

Contractors typically don't have their wife and kids in the car either!
To each his own I guess.

I disagree. 1/2 tons of today out haul, and out tow their 10 year old 3/4 ton brothers. My 1/2 ton may not tow like a 3/4 ton or 1 ton, but it's certainly no "car". If a driver is within limits, or even has some safety margin with their 1/2 ton truck and is happy with how their rig performs, that's totally okay; the default answer shouldn't always be "go out and get the biggest truck you can't afford." Sometimes you gotta run whatcha brung for now and get a bigger truck when budget or circumstances permit...

Will a bigger truck tow better? Of course. Is it always necessary or even possible to get a bigger truck? No. Run the numbers, do some math (weights and dollars) and make the best decision for your situation. Then get out there and have fun!

I totally agree! The new 1/2 tons have a lot more towing ability than in the past; yet so many people feel that if you don't have at least a 3/4 ton then your truck is useless.

Having said all that, I do feel that towing a 32 foot trailer with a 1/2 ton is really pushing it.

I like the piece of mind that my F-250 gives me. My father in law bought a new F-150 Ecoboost Max Tow/HD Payload. Its a really nice truck but at the end of the day it looks small next to mine and my 32bhds. The most important thing is to have fun and be safe.
