Thanks again. I guess I will need to decide if 2k less pounds and 5 feet shorter will make enough difference to improve my tow experience. My hunch is it will be remarkably similar due to frontal profile.

What is it about towing the current camper that you don't like? The big frontal area and the drag it creates won't change with the Roo. But, toyhaulers tend to be tongue - light which can make them difficult to tow. Not sure that is your case though with just a kayak.
We tow our 23IKSS with an older F-150 with the 5.4L V-8. The Eco-boost should be as good/better for power and towing. What gear ratio do you have? Ours is tongue heavy as well - like 800 lbs. When I weighed it we were right at the max GVWR for the truck, so I try to keep the stuff in the bed to a minimum, but tows and handles nicely.
Guess it depends on what the issue is with current tt, but the 21DK may well be a good match for your truck.
