Hopeful new FR owners

Hello all. My wife and I are looking to purchase a FR 29IK or 33RL. Can any of you already experts out there offer thoughts in the weight length towing issues with either? Good or bad.....i like to take very good care of my equipment and my 2006 F350 Power Stroke has enough power, but wonder how it is to pull the 33RL at 36 feet......


Any comments welcomed. Thanks!

Welcome,
I can't offer much advice, I'm new to TT's as well as the forum. We just bought a Clipper 17FQ this season. Still outfitting that to suit our needs and getting used to pulling it. I can't be much help but I wanted to welcome you.
Bob

You certainly have the truck for handling 36 feet.

First off, welcome to the forum!
If you can drive it you can tow it.

Welcome to the forums! You are very wise in doing some homework before pulling the trigger. You might wish to visit the towing forum for more background information although it sounds like you have a truck with more than enough power for your desired trailer.

OK.... we have our new 2015 FR Silverback 29IK! Looking very forward to getting on the road. I was disappointed however to learn the back up camera (an options I did not plan to purchase, but came on the unit we chose) does not come with the monitor. Wow! considering the price you would think a monitor would be included....anyway, any recommendations out there on what monitor works with the camera that is installed on these new units? and spec or suggestions would be welcomed.
