My wife and I love the 320 Freedom Express but I am concerned about its weight. I have a 2015 F150 3.5 Ecoboost with a 5.5 bed. My tow rating is 10700 and my payload is 1710lbs. Does anyone have experience towing a 320 freedom express? I wouldn't care if we were going camping close but we're going to be doing some 1k mile trips with it.
Our contenders the 292 and Bullet are both roughly 1300-1500 lbs less than the 320. Which is making me lean towards one of them, paticularly the 292. The only things well lose is the island. Kitchen slide, and bunk room slide, and larger attached shower. That sounds like a lot on paper though lol.
Thanks for the input.
My 312qbud is 1 level smaller (no island and Kitchen slide) than the same trailer as the Coachmen 320bhds.
I tow mine with a tundra half ton. I am going to recommend that you consider the 310bhds (same as my 312qbud) for you. The 320bhds is going to be too much trailer for your f150. The extra 500lbs between mine and yours is a big difference.
The reason I say it will be too much is that my 312qbud is right at the edge of the tundra which only has a payload of 1600lbs and I was right at 1600lbs with my setup.
I think you will be much happier with the 310bhds than the keystone 31BHPR (these are the same trailer, but by different manufacturers). But if you aren't considering the Coachmen 310bhds over the Keystone 31bhpr than the Keystone is the correct trailer for you.
Hope that helps?
