Looking for a laugh? 365SAQ pulled by F150

Was just putting around on eBay and saw this. Anyone who knows their trucks will see this is clearly a Ford F150. I noticed the jacks were up, weight is on truck. Who knows.... they probably pull it with the F150.

When you say "shopped" are you inferring it's been photo shopped? If so, I'm not trying to get into a debate, but I flat out disagree. The ad is for a camper, not an ad for a truck or tow vehicle. There are 4 pictures that show parts of the truck, some are just showing the back or side, and I think it would be extremely difficult to photoshop just a small part of a different truck in place of another.... ESPECIALLY when they don't give a $%# what kind of truck is pulling it, they're just advertising the camper.

I posted it only because I thought it was funny. My best friend just bought a 2015 F150 with the 3.5 Ecoboost and whatever heavy duty tow package. He tells me it has a 3300lb payload and can tow 12,000. I hate to say it, and I would't feel safe driving behind, to the side, or anywhere near it, but he could (according to paper) tow my 2012 365SAQ empty. From what the "paper" says.

that's more payload capacity than most any 3/4 ton. I looked it up, and that payload if for a 2 wheel drive regular cab, which hardly anyone buys.

Outdoor Kitchen Stripped. No fridge or microwave... No Spare Tire..

This camper has had some mimor work done to it, around $2,000 worth of repairs. The camper is absolutely back to perfect shape with no damage or issues whatsoever. In North Carolina insurance companies tend to just total campers out instead of fixing them. Call for anymore detailed questions about the camper


This is a bad deal!!!

The F 150 is not heavy duty. Only 6 Lug wheels and P Series stock tires..

I think the camper was totaled. I look up salvage ones on eBay all the time. Just window shopping, looking to see how someone wrecked one, or.... whatever. I just happened by this one. I only looked because it was a 365 and the ad says 38ft. I own a 365, 41'7" so I wanted to see what the ad really said. That's when I saw the F150. Regardless of what the truck can or cannot do, I just thought it was funny. I'm not recommending anyone tow the 365 with one. I just saw the ad (for the camper, not the truck) and saw the truck and laughed. For all I know, the F150 is their lot truck and simply moved it to take pics. At the end of the day, it was still funny to me.

And for 28 grand, I think everyone could do better with a different unit.
