Yesterday I returned from a 1980 km, nine day trip. My first real tow with my F150 and really my first real tow other than an 18 wheeler.
I can now actually say I love my truck! The relatively effortless performance both accelerating and slowing had me feeling relaxed.
The mileage sucked. I got 30 L /100 km most of my trip up north from Calgary to Peace River thanks to strong headwinds for the last 700 km of the journey. It averaged out to 25 L /100 km by the time I was home.
The GCWR was about 12500 lb but the trailer is like a sail at 10.5' high.
The EB actually sounds pretty good... when aggressively accelerating up a 5 degree slope in third gear.
Anyway this thread is about pics.
The first pic shows a quick stop in Whitecourt, AB on Friday, at the leading edge of a blizzard.
There were a few AWD SUVs squirming about in the ditch 10 minutes later. We were firmly planted.
Second is getting hitched up and ready to leave the campsite in Gibbons, AB on Sunday morning. Nice people there but it never got warmer than +2.
Third is at the Flying J in Red Deer on Sunday afternoon.
Fourth is my pitiful mileage (metrage?).
Fifth is a pic of the day I brought the trailer home, with my Dakota. Just to raise some eyebrows.
Some have expressed interest in interior shots. I like seeing them so here are mine: The interior pics are from the dealer website when I bought the trailer last fall.
Good to see this thread back on target! Keep it alive!
