2014 Grey Wolf 26RL

Hi, My wife and I are thinking of joining the TT family. We have found a 2015 Grey Wolf 26RL that we like. I have a 2007 Ford F-150 5.4L 4X4 with 3.73 axle. Thoughts on the Grey Wolf 26RL. Thank You!

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. Your F150 with that engine should pull the 26RL without problems.

Any known issues with the Grey Wolf 26RL? Also, I have seen the F-150s like my model squatting in the rear end when pulling a TT similar in weight and size to the Grey Wolf 26RL. Any recommendations to eliminate this issue?

An equalizer hitch will eliminate any of those issues.

I pull a 27 with an f150. squat in a half ton is going to happen without a distribution hitch. watch your payload, load correctly and you'll be just fine. I always recommend the road master active suspension kit. it'll cost you about 400.00 but installs easily in about 20 minutes with no special skill or time.

Ford good truck

We have a grey wolf 28BH that will pull with the F150. Don't even know it's back there it pulls like a dream. 3.5 eco boost . See my profile picture.

I have heard that before. My trailer dealer said " oh you won't even know it's back there" Well in my experience that's a bunch of B.S. I've towed about 2900 miles total with this setup. Trust me you'll know it's back there. If you don't feel it there maybe it fell off! Don't get me wrong the F150 is a great light TT tow vehicle. Although my F150 pulls great and has all the packages to do so, I will upgrade my truck to a 250 or possibly 350 when I can. I've seen people pulling 36 foot 5ers with half tons, crazy IMO. Just my 2...

Never towed before

Well I have never towed ANYTHING in my life before and I was surprised at how easy it towed. Yes you know it's back there I'm not that dumb, but it was comfortable. I think it's kind of a figure of speech not literally.

We have a 26DBH that we are pulling with a recently purchased 2004 F150 SC LB 4x4 with the 5.4. It pulls it remarkably well I think. Recently did a 900 mile round trip with loaded TT of about 7300 lbs and 4x4 ATV in the bed of the truck. Only once did I wish for a bit more power while going up a steep hill. You will be fine. Our truck has the payload and towing packages with 4:10 rear end but previous owner put a bit larger tires on it effectively reducing the gearing to about where you are.

I meant no offense. Just people say that and hear it, like I did and even expect something different. There is so many variables. Towing on flat land low altitude is nothing like 7k plus feet and 10 percent inclines and declines. The best we can do for others is to be clear. Like I said my F150 pulls my trailer fine, without my equalizer and anti sway it is rather nerve racking. Often people assume they're good because they fall under a certain tow limit, which are misleading #s.
