Congrats! We have loved ours. You won't have any problem with the weight.

Congrats.

We looked hard at the 2016 F150 with Ecoboost when we were looking for a TV. Alas it just didn't have the capacities we needed.

Bought the same truck in 2015 and I absolutely love it. I have been towing for 40 years and I've never owned a better tow vehicle.

Nice looking 5ver. No problems towing/stopping ect with the F-150?
Side note. Googled the "2016 Coachmen Chaparral Lite 29MKS" and one in Byron Ga. for 46553.00 and one in Ringgold Ga. for 33995.00. Be cautious my friends.

F150 EB

If your looking at the TV EB for more than a couple of outings; just a suggestion - go for the highest GVW (2011 it was #8200), get HT (11,000 + )with the TT controller, 3.73 rear and Heavy Duty Payload (increases rear load rating). My Pay (sticker on the door post) is 2,393 - great for a HT 5r (1,475 pin/ 10,000) that tows great.

No problems whatsoever. Gas mileage is incredible. At 55 MPH on a flat road I get about 13.5 mpg. at 60 mph it drops to about 12.5. That's about as fast as I like to go anyway. $33,000 is a good price if it's loaded with dual air and the 50 Amp. service.
