Thanks Mil

The 32' length concerns me more than the weight. Our kids are small, and there's no way we'll come close to exceeding 6,500lbs for the foreseeable future. My wheel base on the Ford is only around 140", but my service dealer said it shouldn't be an issue. Frankly, I'll probably rent a trailer this summer just to check it out.

I'm 40 years old, and the days of thinking I'm a cowboy are long gone. I'll take her slow, and probably not even fill the water tanks until we get close to our destination. Living is Seattle, we do have a mountain pass (snoqualmie pass/cascade mountains) to negotiate from time to time, but snow will never be an issue and the pass in nicely divided with 3-4 lanes in each direction during the steep grades. If I'm doing 50, I'll move right. LOL

I have the 2007 F150 with the 5.4 in the Lariat trim, depends on the wheel base and size of wheels but they are rated to tow a max trailer weight (now this is with all the proper equipment, i.e. wght dist bars, sway control, etc. etc.) between 9100 and 11000 lbs. Is yours a reg, super or crew cab. I tow a 27' Flagstaff (2006 model) that gross is 6,497 lbs and don't have a bit of trouble. Shoot with the Forest River models the 31 footers don't weigh 8000 lbs gross, so you should not have any worries.
