We have a 2016 261BHXL. We shopped around for sometime and this was the most camper we could get within our budget that tour criteria. We have enjoyed it. We have been in 6 states within the first year of ownership. It has had some minor warranty repairs needed. I tow ours with a 2012 F150 XL 5.0. My truck doesn't struggle at all. That Triton should be fine.

I am assuming you mean camper? When we bought it we Bought a Husky Centerline hitch (love it). we had the dealer install a spare tire carrier on it. Ours came with the outdoor kitchen and the bumper swing out grill. I have the parts to wire in a battery disconnect switch. I have made my own chocks. I change the shower head to the Oxygenics one. I mounted a TV in the kitchen (ours did not come with one). I have been slowly changing over to LEDs. I plan to mount a Tv in the bedroom area but there is no indication that Forrest River had put any backing anywhere for it even though there is a cable plug right there. I have the parts to do the pump bypass for winterizing. Will install that this year when winterizing. Bought strip LEDs to put into the outdoor kitchen. Put all the bug guards on all the spots. Wanting to make a fold up counter extender next to sink and a bed rail on the top bunk for my little one.

Nice mine came with all LEDs and the same outdoor kitchen I also just installed the Oxygenics shower head. I mounted the TV in the kitchen also and ours has a sticker in the bedroom that says mount TV here is is on the wall between the couch and bedroom about 5ft up from the floor. Still need to do the pump bypass and battery switch.
