RE: Decided on a truck after MANY months.

2020 F-350 7.3L V8 with 750 miles on the ODO. Just pulled a 125 mile round trip mostly hills with 36' trailer (10,000# fully loaded) and got 7.6 MPG....this was the same as my 2015 6.2L V8. Empty the new truck is getting 13.8 MPG around town, 90% stop and go traffic. Towing is a breeze with the 10 speed, glad I got the larger 7.3L

RE: Check Me....I am OK with this set-up

RE: Check Me....I am OK with this set-up

I am definitely going F-350 with the new truck.....not even a question in my mind....for the little cost to go to the 1 ton, it is worth it. 2,350 payload is from the yellow door jamb sticker. Occupants are approx. 800 lbs total. Throw in some fire wood and a small grill in the bed and that's about it. We stay east of the Mississippi (Only been camping in 10 states). Go up to the Adirondacks once a summer. Mostly stay within 3-4 hours of home.

Check Me....I am OK with this set-up

Can you check me (give me your thoughts) on this combination 2015 F-250 Super Duty CC FX4 Off Road, Camper Package (Extra Rear Leaf Spring) Payload Capcity is 2,350 pounds 6.2L V8, 6 speed auto 45,000 miles 3.73 ELS Tow Rating: 12,000 lbs Proposed Trailer: 2020 Jayco 32BHDS, 2 Slides UVW: 8200 lbs CC: 1700 lbs GVWR: 9,900 lbs Tongue Weight Empty: 865 lbs 36' long Reese Strait Line w/Dual Cam Trunion 1,200 Lbs Bars I currently have a 2014 Jayco 29QBH (6800 lbs dry, 9250 GVWR, 33' long). I don't win any races....I get about 8 mpg (which I am ok with). I am looking to upgrade to a 6.7L diesel or 7.3L gas (new engine) in 2021. I am going to be OK with my current set-up for this year if I buy this new trailer? Thanks for your thoughts!
