How did it tow? We are thinking about upgrading.

It towed just fine - i was used to towing a similar weighted RV however the 28DBUD is a longer longer and taller. I was coming home with cross winds which casued the TT to wiggle - im reading on another post that this could very well be due to me still having P Rated tires on my truck, LT is preferred. I have the Firestone Ride Rite air suspension which definitely helps keeping her from bottom out, as was my experience with a previous TT - but swaying like it is at the moment isnt cool, specially when i have a 3500 mile round trip planned in a couple of weeks.

Look at increasing the psi to the tire maximum.

Just put new tires on my f150 and the installer set them at 40 psi for everyday use but while hauling he recommended the max psi of 50.

I tow with a 2013 F150 crew with 3.31 gears, Trailer is 7600 GVWR, I still have original P rated tires on it and I towed from MN to ME and back with no problems(okay trailer tire blow out). I took my time and got my Husky Centerline TS hitch set correctly for my truck so I have very little trouble with sway. I will get between 8-9 mpg at around 65 mph and 10+ at 55 mph depending on the rest of the conditions. I have been very happy with the towing abilities of the EB.
