Well, we did it.

Well, after about 5 months of looking at every model possible, this last week we pulled the trigger and bought

2018 Ford F-150 4WD Lariat w/ 3.5L Ecoboost & 10 Spd Transmission
Truck has Back Up Assist and Max Towing pkg (13,200lbs according to Ford)
A Husky TS WDH
2018 Forest River Wildwood X-Lite 241QBXL

I guess that makes us official. We're not planning on full time but a week or two at a time at most.

Now we're just waiting to pick it up. And planning our 1st 3 trips.

Billy

Great choices, that 3.5l ecoboost is a beast, the low end torque is simply amazing, enjoy!

Find and attend an RV Boot Camp. Escapees run a GREAT RVBC, often over a weekend. RVSEF, FMCA, RV~Dreams (and probably other groups) also offer their versions of RVBCs. RVEducation101.com offers educational DVDs that cover most topics covered at RVBC. Mistakes made with RVs are often expensive and, sometimes dangerous. The time and money spent on RVBC will be a wise investment in your RV lifestyle and, help make you a safer, more knowledgeable RVer. Some insurance companies offer discounts to RVBC graduates. Just DO it; you'll thank me later!

Escapees RV Bootcamp

Ditto on the value of the Escapees RV Bootcamp! Well worth the money, plus it was fun and I met lots of great people. I attended a recent camp in Congress, AZ. I had my rig weighed and learned about weight distribution. I am a solo and am now a lot more confident RVer.
