Agree. We have 28 ft. 6 6inch, 7600 GVRW. Our 150 does fine with it. You need to check the specifics on your specific 150.

I don't know. My folks had a wheel damaged on an f-150 when they hit a piece of metal. Pretty sure replacement wheel was around there. Have to consider TPMS, Alloy, Matching existing wheel.

Following these comments about people returning things they bought while never having any intention of keeping. I suppose I shouldn't let it bother me, but I really have a problem with dishonesty.
