The V nose extends over the frame area where they mount. You have to buy an Equalizer brand WD hitch. A good hitch system but an added $650.00 expense that was not expected. Unfortunately, the dealer that I purchased the camper from tried to send me down the road with the Blue Ox, with the chains hanging at a 45 degree angle, telling me it was ok. Another lesson learned. Needless to say, I bought the Equalizer somewhere else at $150.00 cheaper than my "discounted price" from the dealer.

We got the minimum carpet option. Easier to keep clean and looks really nice. FR does a great job with choice of standard products.

Your dealer apparently had no idea how to setup a Blue Ox hitch as I have one and it works flawlessly. The chains drop straight down. I have had the old style snap up brackets that you use the bar on and now have the rotary latches and both have worked perfectly. Also the Blue Ox when it is dialed in is dream to pull with. Yes the original snap up brackets are a tight fit and you can get a few dents in the lower metal panels but the hitch sets up correctly and the new rotary latches are the slickest thing I have ever used.

How do you find the gas mileage on the Ford Ecoboost?

It's right at 10 MPG. I think if you pull with a gas engine that's about what you get. My previous Silverado was about the same. Better MPG when not towing and truck is just more responsive when I am pulling.
