We havent gotten it to the mountains yet but im going to guess that the truck will know its back there. .. for a change. My gas mileage didnt even change when we hooked up the hybrid.
Picked my new 2015 274DBH up Friday. I tow with a 2000 F250 4X4 Crew Cab V10 with an 8' bed. Noticed a few differences in towing this one home even though it weighs 400 pounds more than my former TrailRunner 2700BHS. The biggest difference was less bucking due to wind resistance; at 70 passing big rigs its stable. Secondly, fuel mileage seems (according to my computer monitor device) to be a little better on flat ground. Finally, I'm down one link on the equalizer hitch where I used to go to the 5th chain link, I'm now on the 4th.
By the way, looks like you are towing with an Expedition. Can you give me the specs on yours? My wife has a 2007 Expedition EL Limited without the towing package. Towed the old TT, got about 5 MPG and couldn't keep the tach below 3000. The transmission wouldn't shift out to 5th or OD.
