I see TTs and 5ers towed by gassers all the time and $8K buys a lot of gas. FR states dry is right around 8000# loaded around 10K is about right. Have fun.
My thoughts on buying the 250 went like this:
1. Diesel would be ideal but, priced out of my reach right now. Plus CCC on Diesel 250s is only 400lbs or so over my F150.
2. Ecoboost only got 9MPG towing, so if I'm going to get 9MPG towing, might as well tow with some margin, 250 gassers have much better CCC (2700 lbs for the one I got.)
Since I haven't towed with the 250 yet I wanted to confirm my assumption that I would get roughly the same mileage that the Ecoboost did.
