I test drove that Eco-Boost, a couple weeks ago. signed up at my local dealer. They came right to the house with it !! Dam.............wish I waited an purchased a 2011 That truck has Balls !! Your not having any problems pulling with that thing !! I may trade my 2010 in yet !! That V-6 Eco is awsome !! If anyone has a chance to drive one, They should, because when them turbo's kick in ! Watch out !! Your going to want one! The gas milage is what interests me too !

Things I have learned are always buy more than you want or need right now. If you think "oh that would be nice but we don't really need it" then get it, you won't be sorry. We have a 8317rkss and love it. We added everything we could to it and are not sorry at all. Make sure you have good trailer tires and definitely a good hitch. We have equalizer 1200lb hitch and it works excellent. Enjoy! I have a 2011 F350 6.7l diesel. My Father just ordered the new ecoboost. You will definitely have no trouble pulling that trailer.
2011 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 8317rkss to come
2011 Ford F350 6.7 Diesel
2004 Honda VFR 800
2005 Brute Force 750
And most importantly, a loving wife, 2 year old son and a NEW BABY GIRL NOV.30 (I do it all for them!)

Hey Big Red, I recently put a post elsewhere, in the towing/load forum I believe and have been asking opinions on towing a 34' with my 03 GMC Sierra V8 5.3L 3.73 gear ratio Z-71 4WD with tow package. I am under the weight limit for this truck and will have equalizer hitch/sway bars. Some are saying the trailer is too much for the truck, but it looks like you are pulling much of the same; what's your opinion on this setup and where do you travel? I am heading from OKC to Port Aransas to sit for awhile. Appreciate the info.
