    Well, I see that you're in Ontario and I'm in Washington so it's a pretty long haul. I got my last beagle from West Virginia, all the way on the other side of the US. He and his sister were on death row there and scheduled to be killed the next day. We found her a home, too.

    Nice truck .... I have an F-350, too!

    By the by, I got the built-in gooseneck ball so I don't have to deal with taking a standard fifth wheel hitch in and out. It got to be pretty heavy for me and my wife. I really like it, eh.

    Toppers are white. No issues during the winter at all.

    I purchased and installed my own Maxxair Vents.

    June! awesome.

    You told me awhile back that you had toppers put on your unit. What colour are yours? And, do you have an trouble with them in the winter?

    Also, did you get the Maxxair II vents?

    Truck is coming in June; we're getting closer!

    Hello! I'm thinking of buying the Crusader 295RST or the 315RST from the same dealer as you purchased yours. Did you buy at an RV show? Good price? Tips?

    1surveyor, what is your payload?

    Hi campers i also have the F150 crew cab eco boost , we just got our 5th wheel so it has only been pulled home from the dealer , we also had them put the pull rite automatic slider in it works to perfection
    , there are lots of nay sayers , but i have a friend that has been using his setup ( which is the same ) without any problems . and i know a guy that pulls a 10,000# stock trailer

    Bill, it's nice to hear from someone else with such good taste in trucks...

    My payload is 2177 so it is very close to your truck. I have very few aftermarket additions also so the truck is pretty much stock. I have scaled my combo and I am OK on all numbers. Iam close on the GC but otherwise fine.

    The truck handles the rig very well. In fact we just came back from a trip consisting of about 1000 miles towing and some of that over 7 and 8 percent grades in PA. Power wise, you'll be FINE. Braking, well just drive safely and you will have no trouble. I haul the righ sometimes with about 2/3 of a tank of FW which ironically helps the balance nicely.

    I have a Reese 16K manual slide hitch which does the jobs perfectly.

    I am going to add Supersprings just to help level the truck out a little when hauling. It sits maybe 1/4" nose high, certainly no big deal but I'd like

    Another...I have been lurking here for several months and this is my first PM to someone on this forum. Your have the exact set-up my wife and I are think about.

    I have a 2013 F150 Lariat Eco-Boost Super Crew 4x4 157" WB with both the Max Tow & HD Payload packages. My available payload is 2162lbs. Could you please tell me how well your truck pulls this trailer, and how close you come to your available payload.

    Any other info you could share would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
