I'm pulling my Roo 233s with a 2014 F150 Supercrew cab. Pulls our TT very well, even in the mountains out here in CA. I'm still scared of going through the grapevine though! It has about 1750 lbs payload, 3.73 gears and max tow package.

No reason to be scared of the grapevine with that set up.

I pull my 32' heritage glen with a 2012 F250 diesel. This truck is a dream to drive and pulling up hills you can drive about as fast as is safe. Mpg at 65 mph is 12.3 on a straight road. Drops to 9.5 when pulling grades at 65 mph. I spent extra and got the King Ranch, air/heated seats are worth it on long drives. I plan on retiring next year and crisis crossing continent for. Few years.
The heritage glen is very comfortable and fairly well made, though I have had some issues. Typical factory warranty is crappy, wouldn't count on it. More on that is anyone would like to hear

2008 tundra 5.7L.
Pros... great ride. Quality build. Plenty of power and torque for my needs. Resale value. Paid for.
Cons, gas tank too small. Bed sides too high. Remote unlock access to close.

Me, neither...mine gets closer to 10 than 15!! (Varies on how many mountains I'm driving up/down!!!!)

Pros with the Tundra

-Plenty of power and torque and the HD brakes are awesome.
-The back seat is huge so bringing 3 people with us is easy.
-My factory cover on the back is about 99% waterproof so we can store just about anything in there. (It's also lockable and only a few screws to loosen to remove it.)
-The back-up camera means I can go pick up the trailer alone since I don't need a spotter to line up to the hitch.
-Very comfortable ride and the tow mirrors work great.

Cons with the Tundra

-Gas tank is only 25 gallons (But we stop a lot when traveling so not a huge issue...probably will add a few gas cans if we do longer traveling.)
-Not a cheap truck (almost $50K new but I got mine for $38K since it was about a year old but still has factory warranty)
