I have a 2012 F150 on order. I has the ecoboost engine and the max tow package. The specs say it will tow 11,300 lbs !!! I will have to wait until about Jan to get it.
After we get the truck, then it's off to find a new TT. Have a pop-up now (625D).

I have a 2008 f-150 super crew 4/4 5.4 eng. it pulls my 30 foot Flagstaff really well,wish I had the new ecoboost though...the test they did in the mountains against the Chev. and Dodge was amazing.Check it out.

Nice!!! I have a 2010 FX2 Sport 5.4L. It handles great. I think Ford has the nest looking interior for trucks. I wish I woulda known about the Ecoboost before I got mine. If mine pulls well I'm sure you'll have no problem.

I tow our 829FKSS with an 2010 F150 and it handles it terrific. I would guess our total weight is around 8000 lbs with about 200 lbs in the back of the truck.

We tow with an Ecoboost and so far it has been great. We have a 28 ft. Wildwood and it pulls just as well or better than our V8 Chevy, think you will be pleasantly surprised with it.

I pull a 2010 23fbs with a 2004 F150. I only have the 4.6 and it pulls hard sometimes but it goes. We were not supposed to "get" this big of trailer but when DW saw the camper, that was all she needed. I tried to make my point that we needed less camper or more truck, but you can see how that conversation worked out.

We have a 07 f150 and a 08 3001w. Tows great will not win any races in the mountains but can keep up with the flow on the flats. We travel about 6000 miles per year and average 10.5 mpg.

I use to have on 04 with the 4.6. Then I got a 2010 with the 5.4. What a difference. I think we're gone end up going with F250 diesel in next few years, cuz we want a 5er

I think that when I go to upgrade my next TV will be the eco-boost. By the time I upgrade there should be quite a few on the market. Have been wanting diesel for long time for the torque factor but eco-boost looks good at this point. Who knows, there will prob be something better by then too.

Towing my 30' Wildwood with 2011 Ford F-150 with 5.0 liter. It tows great and has good power and at 55 - 60 miles an hour I get about 9.7 miles a gallon pulling trailer. Very Happy with my camper and truck

Have an 09 4x4 Crew cab, picked up 2012 Jammer 3008 in Sept from factory and only towed to home in Pa so far. Just getting ready to tow this spring. Did have a bit of sway coming home with unit, have installed equalizer hitch to see if that helps. Added computer plug in module and hi flow air system, truck pulls trailer interstate speeds fairly easy, milage runs between 10 to 12 towing.
