3rd time around

The wife just bought our 3rd trailer. She selected a '10 Rockwood 8317KDSS. Big enough to hold the grandkids and us, small enough for my truck. Looking forward to getting tips from the more experienced RVers.

I have a '13 F150 SCrew Ecoboost, 6.5' bed, 4x4. I haven't pulled anything larger than a 14' utility trailer with it, but I'm sure it will handle the 8000 lb GVW of the new trailer. Our previous tow vehicle was a '01 Yukon XL 5.3L that struggled with our last trailer. I see you got the big V8 in yours. I considered the 6.2L in a F350, but opted for the smaller truck.
