Now the Ecoboost is a complete beast. It never runs out of power on hills and I can run a constant 60-65 without slowing down.
Gas mileage is a bit better towing and way better not towing.
It's a great alternative to a diesel. I'm glad I made the change and now feel confident I could go camping in the mountains if I want. Attachment 55183

Camper67 - what kind of trailer do you pull? length, width, height?

I am looking at a 30' bunkhouse by Kodiak. It weighs 6005lb dry. I am just nervous that it may be to much trailer.

Thank you for your reply!

Towing with Ecoboost

It is palomino's 269bhsk Solaire
6,000 dry with 950# toung weight
OL is 32ft 8' wide 10.5ft high
I love how my truck pulls but wish I had more than 1400# cargo capacity and LT tires due to the heavy toung on the trailer. I figure it is pushing 16% of the TT camp ready. No water in tanks at all because fresh water tank is in front.
Truck pulls like there's no tomorrow.
