We've been researching 1/2 ton trucks and liteweight travel trailers for two years as we entered retirement ready to do some long-awaited traveling.
After months of research and test drives, we narrowed the truck down to the Ford Ecoboost and last month purchased a 2011 F-15- Supercab with the Ecoboost engine and a 3.15 rear end. We live in the country, and have averaged 23MPG over the past six weeks. We're extremely happy with the truck, but have yet to pull a TT. The 3.15 rear brings the tow rating down from 11,300 (max tow package) to 8,600 (standard tow package).
Fast forward to yesterday: We signed the papers for a 2013 Flagstaff 26WRB with a dry weight of 5805 lbs. Looking forward to picking it up next week
Has anyone here towed using the 3.15 gears? Just looking in advance to see what we can expect.
Thanks in advance...
