Must be one of those 1/2 ton towables! Hopefully, a cop will see him before he gets far and hurts himself or someone else!

That happened in St. Petersburg, FL. There is a video on it. The best part is the camera shot from the other side with the sewer hose dangling out of the bumper.

Nice.
Yah, we got the truck under the pretense that we'd be getting a TT and my Acadia AWD was barely adequate pulling our 18ft ski boat.
While shopping, I was leaning more towards 3/4-ton trucks, just for the extra towability, but my wife actually stumbled on this Lariat Limited with the 6.2L V8 AND, the prior owner towed a TT, too, so she had put a helper spring on rear leafpack. Was too good to be true.
With WDH (not set up yet in my original picture), the suspension is perfectly level and you hardly know you're pulling anything!

Wow! EB Screws were on my radar and I wondered how one would do with a TT this big. Granted, when we originally started looking, we were in the 24-26ft range. This one was just too good a deal to let some extra length/weight scare us off. LOL!

You'll be impressed by the power in the new EB trucks. The 10 Speed is nice if you can get one with it.

Only thing I am changing from my old Supercharged 05 F150 to my 17' is new WDH with built in sway.

Can't say for sure if its due to lighter truck, or different terrain since I moved 600 miles away from where I was previously towing but I was having more sway with truck on the long trip back to camp with family. Never towed with my old truck 600 mi trip back through NC mountains to IN.

But this tows my 33' with plenty of power through the mountains.

That's awesome! I'll keep that in mind if I stay with Ford next change.
