Figured someone would have to post other mfg recalls to justify the FoMoCo mess up. Just like politicians excusing bad behavior is justified by bad behavior by others. Nobody wants to own up to mistakes

Human nature kicks in again.

Do you think EB owners are going to admit they have a problem? Not likely.

Ford F-150 3.5L ecoboost

I have a 2012 F-150 ecoboost with the 145" wheelbase. My wife and I are looking to become RVers. We are currently looking at a Windjammer in the 3000 series...35'. Will that be too much for my truck? We plan to pull 1000 miles on relatively level roads. I would appreciate any and all advice. Thanks

I would say at least 5' too much trailer.

I have the ECO but with the longer wheelbase (157"). Pulls my trailer (35' and about 8000# loaded) great with lots of reserve power. Also have the LT tires that add to stability. See my signature. I have not had a single issue with the truck in all types of weather including extreme, heavy rainfall.
I'm using the Husky Centerline WD hitch.

I agree I currently pull a Wildcat 25RL with a 1 Ton dually even though the trailer is Advertised as a Half ton towable I still wouldn't.

You were able to figure that out, were you? I'm somewhat surprised...
