RE: Tow Vehicle rating and comfort

Hi All! I'm having trouble deciphering the towing capacity of my truck. Vehicle stats: 2016 Ford F-150 4x4 SuperCrew 3.5L V-6 EcoBoost 3.3 Axle ratio GCWR 16100# Conv. towing trailer cap 10,600# Would my truck tow a UVW 5000# (6800# GVWR) trailer comfortably? I'm new to RVing and looking to purchase my first. I want to be comfortable towing i.e.having acceleration power and ability to get up inclines. If not, what kind of power should I be looking to get? I look forward to your input! Thanks-j You will be fine, unless you put a huge amount of heavy stuff in the bed of the truck. That Ecoboost is a towing beast.

RE: *NEWB ALERT* question about TT up keep

Anyone have exp with the cones that the electric tongue jacks foot sits on? I have a red one that was gifted to me. I don't sit the jacks foot on the group it is always on this cone, I am thinking maybe this could adding to the problem and maybe I should try getting a metal foot to attach to the jack without using the red cone. red trailer pad I can't believe that wouldn't wobble. Get some pieces of lumber and glue them together with waterproof epoxy.

RE: How fast do you go

60 mph max, because that is the speed rating on our ST tires. Also, because a truck + trailer doesn't handle or stop as well as just a truck, even with a good setup. Emergency maneuvers (of course ) should be avoided if possible, but are much less risky at 60 mph than at 70 or higher. We also get somewhat improved gas mileage over towing at higher speeds.
