Transamz9, you also paid the diesel engine up charge and get the HD truck ride when your empty. Most people don't haul what you what you do, but you got the stuff so you need the beast to pull it. Thumbs up and have fun.

I will also get that "diesel charge" back when I sell. The diesel trucks sell for 8-10,000 more used also. I see I your avatar that you have a fiver. It would benefit you also.

I just spent a little money on my HD truck and It rides as good as a 1/2 ton truck now and will haul way more weight.

I'm not trying to make this a "my truck is better than your truck" thread so please don't take it that way. I am just stating the facts. I think the new F150's are very very sexy trucks! I would just give the Eco some more time to prove itself.

Take a nice look at the Tundra. She is mean. I get 17 hwy, 15.3 city. Towing a 6500 lb TT I get 8.5-9. Gobs of power. I towed my friends 10800 lb TT with no issue from the lot to my house (5 miles). Just a thought from left field.

Riiight and then you woke up. I don't have one and probably won't buy one but just drove my neighbors and u can't buy a car with those amenities and price for 32k. It's all relative based on price and what your needs and price point is. He went from a tundra to this.....

Nope! I was awake the whole trip. You are more than welcome to follow me on my next trip so you can see for yourself, if you could keep up.

Decided on the 2012 Ford F-150 4x4 5.0L V-8 SuperCrew with Tow Pkg. Rated for 7700lbs. This should be a great TV for many years if I can afford to keep that 36 gallon tank filled up :-)

Thanks to everyone who contributed by sharing your thoughts and experience...!

Congrats on the new ride! It will be much better than the SUV you had. I hope it gives you many years of enjoyment and good camping memories.
