Just upgraded from my '02 F150 SuperCrew.

2012 Expedition EL Limited 4x4. 5.4 Triton Flex Fuel. 3:73 Axle and rear air suspension.

I miss my truck, but this TV is a much more pleasant traveling experience for the family when towing.

I have a 2012 F250SD Diesel that tows my Wildcat 317RL very well, no complaints. Planning on going to Yellowstone next July and we will see how it does in the mountains.

To anyone that will be traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway, I strongly recommend diesel. Just ran it from Cherokee, NC into VA and there were several sections of 14 degree grades that were several miles long with no "pull out". It was the first time I have ever seen 210* transmission temp. and we have the 6 speed Allison tranny and extra cooler with tow pack. Duramax had no problem with power, but trans temp, although still within limits, gave us much consern.
A gasser, unless towing very little weight, would have cooked both engine and tranny. The "overlooks" are not big enough to pull a TT and TV into for the most part.
The tunnels are no big deals as they are tall and wide enough for all.

2015 F250 Lariat 6.2l 4x4 with 3.73's pulling 2016 Micro Lite 25dks. I just upgraded from a 2005 Nissan Titan 4x4. Even though CAT scales indicate that my loaded trailer weight is just under 5,000lbs, I did not like the way my rig got pushed around on the interstates with the lighter Titan. After much consideration (and debate with others including my son who has a 2015 F250 6.7l), my decision to buy gas verses diesel boiled down to the fact that I only have a 3.7mi commute to work each day and I worried about being able to keep a diesel hot enough in that short distance. Also, considering that it is just my wife and I, we are very comfortable in this size trailer and doubt seriously that we will ever get a larger one.

Pros: There are so many.... The F250 has heavy duty everything and is priced very closely to a similarly equiped F150. The F250 is definitely the "Boss" of our trailer compared to the lighter Titan. CAT scales say the new truck, passengers, gear, and trailer weigh a combined 12,800lbs compared to the F250's rated combined max of 19,000lbs. With this combination, payload is an absolute "non-issue". Unloaded fuel economy averages 11mpg around town, which is slightly better than our Titan. On a recent unloaded highway trip of 600mi, mpg averaged 16.8mpg.

Cons: The F250 crew cab is a big truck and noticeably more difficult to whip around shopping center parking lots. Towing fuel economy of 10mpg with the new truck, though expected, is only slightly better than the old Titan.

You're from Oxford!! You're supposed to have a big truck out here..

At least you don't have to drive into Atlanta everyday. I have to go to 85 and Clairmont for work and park in a deck with my F250.

You will like the truck for sure. Even dealing with Atlanta everyday, I will never go back to the F150.

The key is to back it in to parking spots. It drives my wife crazy when I do that or park at the far end of the parking lot. Told her it was good for us getting the extra exercise.
