Hi everyone!

New RV owner here! Just purchased a 2017 Evo T2250. Very excited! We will be towing with my 2006 f150 4.6. I'm slightly nervous about that part. Dry weight 4301 lbs and my max tow weight on the f150 is 6300. Should I be concerned?
Also, what basic supplies should I make sure we have before our maiden voyage?
Thank you!

Spend a night, prepare a couple meals, do a living cycle in "Camp Driveway." You will discover all the things you "missed" while they are only steps away in the house.

Welcome aboard, and you are gonna have a great time !!!

While we defer on the truck comments to those more knowledgeable about one like yours, will drop a gentle suggestion that heat is the worst enemy of your transmission. If you don't have a "towing package" / transmission cooler then that might be one item on the short list of Tow Vehicle ("TV") recommendations.

Welcome to the RV world!!!
Take your truck & trailer to a weigh scale. You can find them
at most Truck Centers. Will cost you about $10 but you'll know
the exact weight of your rig.

Welcome to the forum from Missouri. I agree about the first trip is best to take either in your drive way or close to home. Enjoy your 2017 Evo T2250. Pull up a camp stool and enjoy the camp fire.
