RE: Central Missouri to Colorado Springs

Thanks for the advice. My wife did get our RMNP pass requested, and we have our entrance time set. We also had our campgrounds reserved a couple of months ago, so good there as well :)

RE: Central Missouri to Colorado Springs

Appreciate all the advice everyone! I should have added that I have been to Colorado several times, I've just never towed anything out there :) Had in-laws out there during my first marriage, but haven't been back much since my first wife and I divorced. Taking my second wife and her daughter out so they can see why I love the state so much. A lot of the reason we upgraded our truck and travel trailer (had a '13 F150 SC 5.0 and 18 foot bunk house) was to go on camping trips farther away from Missouri. Very much looking forward to getting out there again. We had our campgrounds reserved a couple of months ago, and already have tickets for the cog ride up to Pike's Peak as well, so we are good there. I just needed to know what to expect as far as steep grades and narrow passes that could cause difficulty. It's one thing to drive in those areas, and a completely different thing to TOW in those areas. Glad there is such a wealth of knowledge on here to help ease my mind!

Central Missouri to Colorado Springs

Hi everyone! Brand new to the forum and wanted to get some advice on travelling to Colorado here in a couple of weeks. Really just looking to ease my mind about towing in Colorado since I never have. We have a 2020 F250 SCSB with the 6.2L gasser and 6 speed transmission, and will be towing a 2021 Coachmen Catalina Trail Blazer 30THS weighing in around 7,800 lbs, with 1,342 lbs of tongue weight with the garage empty. I have installed an Air Lift 5,000 system, and will also be using a WD hitch. Max tow capacity for the truck is 12,500 lbs, and payload is 3,276 lbs. We will be travelling from mid-MO to Colorado Springs, and then to Estes Park to finish out our trip before coming back home. Is there anything I should be aware of travelling to either of those destinations? Basically looking for what to expect, and possibly the best routes to take to get between those two places. I've got a few years towing experience in mostly Missouri, but the Ozarks are just big hills compared to the Rockies.
