In June we bought a Coachmen 32WC and love it. We have been dolly towing, but would really like to switch to a flat toad. Looked at some potential vehicles, but nothing compares to my 2016 F150 XLT Ecoboost 2WD. Found out on line that I could get a driveshaft device that would allow me to disconnect the rear wheels from the transmission enabling 4-wheels down towing.
I have been looking at all the different devices for attaching the truck to the coach as well as the various braking systems. I'm looking for advice/ recommendations from experienced toad haulers for the most practical system. I'm a believer that simple systems don't have sophisticated problems, so the simpler, the better. Also looking for the best value . . .
I don't have a welder any more, but I am both wiring and mechanically competent, and believe I could do most if not all of the install - at least if no welding is required. (But I do have a friend . . .).
Some quick background: Started with a 19' Zinger TT in 2011. In 2013, DW wanted to move to a Coach. Got a 2005 FR Lexington 255.
DW decided it was too small and she wanted a TT.
Sold the Lexington and bought a 35' foot V lite in 2017. Beautiful and spacious.
After 18 months DW says "Too big." Lost big money.
2018 DW says Coachmen is "just right". Sounds like the Goldilocks three bears story, right? Anyway, tired of subsidizing RV dealers and need to make this one work. If it doesn't, it may not be the coach that goes
