I have a 2013 Eco, no max tow. I have been pulling a Lacrosse 330rst. Total 10k with Reese straight line hitch. No sway, pulls great. I lock out the sixth gear. At 65mph it turns 2000 rpm, trans temp 204 in July along gulf coast. I just take my time and allow enough between me and the vehicle ahead of me

I have a 2013 and tow a Rockwood 8285WS FW. I'm 50 lbs under rear axle weight limits. Rv weight or truck handling has never been an issue for us. I try to limit myself to 55 MPH and average 10 to 11 MPH.

Towing w 2014 3.5 ecoboost

We tow our 248RBS with our truck. No problems. Most of the time you don't know it's there unless there's a good wind.

I tow a 8289 Rockwood with my 2013 Eco Boost with the max tow package. It pulls more easily that the previous 5.4L F250 I had. I'm a couple hundred pounds over my gross rear axle spec and have air bags to keep the truck level. Like other's have shared, I usually pull between 55 and 60 MPH, not because the pickup won't pull it faster but mileage goes down considerably.

I currently tow a 2011 Flagstaff V-Lite 30WRKSS with a 2012 F-150 eco, 3.73 rear end, Hensley Arrow hitch. I've never weighed it but I suspect it is around 8,500 loaded. No problems towing at all. We had a Windjammer which was probably 9,500 lbs loaded that we pulled 8,500 miles all through the west and southern Canada. No issues with that one, either.

Rockwood Mini Lite 2306, four bikes, two kayaks. Yes, I need/want a ladder rack for the kayaks.

I love the way the color of the truck complements the color scheme of the rv. Total coincidence.
