As for a 1ton that would be sweet , but I have lots of friends with Ford's and lots of problems. I am a GM guy always have I get the employee disc but my next truck will be a dodge, easy to replace high dollar parts down the road. But I love the look of a new black F350 drw 4 door long bed.. what is your capacities of the eco?? Can you put e rated tires on and be within ? You have enough HP....

Local Ford dealer is a great friend and has bent over backwards to keep me in fords the last few years (I was born a Dodge man)
The service and overall experience has been top notch. I've had 3 fords in a row and this e. boost is amazing. I get 900 km per tank (in town) it's faster than my sports car, and has a 11300lb towing cap.
Pin weight is my main concern. Buddy of mine used his to haul same size and weight trailer (Sidney 34bhs) and had no issues. And his f150 wasn't e. boost. The weight police aren't what they are down USA. BUT safety is a concern.
I was thinking of putting 10ply tires, springs and/or airbags to keep her level until I can find a proper 250/350 replacement.
She has max tow package.

Lol!

Dealer will take her to the border. No charge. I'm paying a local company here to go get it.
Probably 2500 to get her here + brokerage fees and odds and ends.

We're next door to Maine. So weather is what you'd see there.
Strong winters, Dec until late march, but fantastic summers and fall. Ocean here so camping is world class.

Strong winters dec. until late march.
Messy springs.
Fantastic Summers and fall.
Next to ocean so camping is world class.

Dealer is shipping to border no charge, I'm paying a local company here to go get it.
Probably close to 3G by the time it gets here.

Wow!

You see, that's why I LOVE this forum!
I'd have done exactly that.
Thanks so much. The wife and I were just discussing that very issue. Whether to put the big tv up where we're suppose to or on the wall that separates the outside kitchen.
That 40 incher looks perfect. Might just be worth it to stow it on the bed during travel.
Otherwise, 32 or 27 might be the answer.

I can't wait to get my hands on the trailer so I can see what works and what doesn't. All info you guys provide is incredibly helpful.
THANK YOU.
