Yes sir.. I recognize the name from Blueoval.. I'm on there every day just looking around, killing time lol.

Ford did amazing with this color. It is crazy how many different colors/shades it has depending on the weather outside.

I love the color! I had a '99 Deep Wedgewood Blue F150 that would change shades depending on light in a similar way. From black to blue to almost purple.

Which cover is that? I have been looking for one just like that, but the only one I found suggest strongly that you not drive down the road with it folded back in an position. I take it yours is not like that.

Thanks!

New member and 1st post. We pick up our 2014 V-Cross Platinum 365VTSB later this week or early next. We are just waiting for the dealer to finish up the generator install. My tow rig is a 2014 Chevy 2500HD CCSB 4x4. It still has all the stock emissions on it but does have a Motor Ops tune and drop in AFE Pro Dry filter. I also added Firestone bags with on board air. She pulls our 32ft race trailer like nothing is back there so the fiver shouldn't be an issues either! We are excited as our first trip with the new one is in a month.

The rig:



This is one of the three. The race car trailer:



We also have a horse trailer but that is the wife's baby.

As soon as we pick up the new one we will post pics. I'm happy to see a forum for Forest River products. They are a great place to learn and get info.

Cheers

Sweet rig! You will love those Michelins for towing. Great weight rating, quiet, and good traction in foul weather/terrain.

Bakflip F1 - If you look at this picture about a foot in from the edge of the bed, you will see a little clip/hook on each side. With the cover folded 3 times so basically the last large panel still lays flat, you can take a bungie cord and you hook to that hook and wrap under the cover and hook to your bed posts in the corner. I can tell you that there is plenty of weight to not even need the cords. I've driven MANY times with it folded up to that point and it does not even budge from the wind due to the weight of 3 panels all folded up.



I did get the Bakbox 2 as well for all my camping stuff (straps, gloves, tools etc) because with 2 car seats, can't get access to the storage inside the truck. It's pricey for the Bakbox but I like the design and like have storage. With a short bed and 5th wheel, can't really have a bed box so this works well.



And it folds out of the way if you need the full bed.
