Sounds like you have it covered. In 5 years you can buy a new TV and Trailer together when you upgrade! The Ford will serve you well, it is also made in the USA as well!

I think they are a must for anyone who drives any distance. So far I have found everything I want in the truck except the towing mirrors. They are a rare option on the F150, but common on the Super Duty. We only tow about 10 times a year and this will be my wife's vehicle for which she only drives about 5k miles a year. I may end up settling for everything I am wanting minus the tow mirrors. My wife says the tow mirrors are ugly anyway. Will keep everyone posted.

My FR dealer found me a pair of slide on mirrors for my 2014 F150. Cost me $59 for the pair. Work great. Very little vibration, and I can still auto fold the mirrors with them on.

As previously stated, there are no fitted mirrors for the 2015's yet. But, yes eventually the two main players in that field will have them available.

I have the Max tow package on a 2014 F150 and it is good for 11,300 lbs. Not so good on cargo capacity at 1900 lbs. 3.5L ecoboost,3.73 axle. It tows my 8500 lbs wet 26RBSS. The 2015 has 700lbs less weight so you can carry 700 more cargo. I bought the TV before the TT so that works.

You should also get the backup camera which has a zoom feature which focuses on the hitch ball. Makes hitching a whole lot easier. And with the Max tow package on the XTR and 302a package, has moveable pedals, integrated brake controller, bigger rad, oil and tranny cooler, class IV hitch, 7700 GVWR, I also got the manual tow mirrors, And step on the tail gate. Also has a trailer app for the computer in the dash, that tells you the mileage on the trailer while towing and how much power is going to the brakes through the 7 prong plug. I was impressed and got a great deal on the 2014 in April. Truck had 35 kms on it.
