Welcome. I'd have to actually look at the numbers (capabilities of the F150, weight values of the toy hauler) to be sure, but it seems a 250 might be better suited.

Hello, and

We moved this thread over to the towing section, as your question has to do with towing, and it was felt that you would get better responses over here.

Please go back to the welcome mat and introduce your self again. If you will look around the forum, we have tried to split it up into various categories, since not everyone reads every post, to try and make searching easier, and for you to get help with your questions, and for you to be able to offer assistance to others when you can.

Now I have a question regarding your post, you mention Ford F150HD, is the HD in this instance the Harley Davidson version of the truck, or do they make a Heavy Duty version? That info would be helpful. Also the towing specs of the truck, if you know, and the weights of the particular camper you are looking at would be helpful. One last thing, are you towing on mostly flat ground, or will be towing through the mountains?

Again to the forum.

if it's the Harley version of the F150, i'm told it will have a terrible tow capacity. i work with someone who has one.
