My research has shown me that they usally go around the 87,000 mile mark. Well you guessed it I have 87,525 miles on my F-150. We are planning a 940 mile each way trip to Disney in August. Here is my question?
What happens if it takes a crap half way to Disney. I would be strapped with a 7 year old girl who has been looking forward to going her whole life and that would SUCK
I made it all the way to Disney and back home without any problems.
The old Ford pulled like a dream and I even went all the way with a golf cart in the back (extra 600 lbs). My fuel bill was $645 for the whole trip, 1880 miles round trip. I averaged about 10 mpg which is normal for TT pulling from what I have read.
And as a side note if you ever go to Fort Wliderness camping you really should think about taking a golf cart or renting one, it made our time there so much more relaxing
