We just took our 2014 (just purchased it this past Friday) 293REX out. My 2500 Ram had no problems what so ever. I would think your F250 shouldn't have any major problems pulling it around other fuel consumption.

Would think airbags would be cheaper.

It's just physics. It takes so much energy to move the rig down the road and you pay at the pump. We also drive highway speeds and don't avoid mountain passes. By the way, the new F150's don't offer the big 6.2 so the next truck will probably have to be a F 250. I have owned a
F 350 and F 250 in the past. This F150 does the job fine when well equipped.

I just bought a 2014 F150 EB Crew and it can tow 11,200 but I try to stay about 1500#'s from Max when I tow. I just switched to a Hybrid only 6,000#'s loaded and it works really well up the mountains. I get 9.5-12 towing with no wind, avg 19.5 highway/city and 21.5 and have clocked 23.5 on all highway not going over 65MPH
