Biggest challenge - remembering it's back there when you change lanes.

I'm sure it looks fine on the dry weight but just watch out when you load that 4000 pounds of stuff the weight police always take camping. And don't forget about the driver weight. Are you over 150 lbs? Also got the kids, dog, toys, frontal area, hills, insurance people but hey, we know you have already made up your mind just want someone to agree with you.

Believe it or not, that actually can be an issue.

My wife and I talked about this exact scenario- getting a smaller second camper. I thought we were the only ones nutty enough to consider it.

You should have looked at the F450, never know what the future holds...

I have talked about it too. DW just smiled and shook her head. I think I heard her say "12 step RV program"...

Nice looking truck you have there but IMO you should have went with the F450 The weight of the trailer is on the edge of the 350's capacity.
